    I have been working at Adobe full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    -It's a Billion Dollar Start Up - fast pace, highly-intelligent people, makes strategic decisions fairly quickly for such a large company.
    -Culture is fantastic - you love coming to work because of the great people!
    -The solution space is fantastic - everything digital!

    Cons

    We're a consensus-driven culture, which can make the decision making process all-inclusive; but the positive is that once a decision is made, it is fully supported.

    Advice to Management

    Keep up the Pace and Great Work. Continue a Relentless Focus on Making Our Customers Happy.

    Pros

    In my opinion Adobe consistently treats its employees very well and I always have really cool stuff to work on.

    Cons

    Since Adobe has a very strong corporate culture, you will either really like it or you really won't like it.

    Advice to Management

    I would recommend paternity leave for fathers.

    Pros

    Adobe offers a fun, challenging and interesting work environment. This is the best job and best company I have ever worked for!

    Cons

    There is indeed a lot of work to be done, although I think this is quite true in all high-tech companies.

    Advice to Management

    Very satisfied as I just got a promotion!!!

    Pros

    Being a part of designing new software that people every where will use. People not only share information, you learn to think in ways you didn't used to.

    Cons

    Largely box software, not web. The company is divided up between several offices, so communication is usually done with web conference.

    Advice to Management

    None

    Pros

    We have the all time best benefits (insurance) in the area. The management is the best in the area too.

    Cons

    Well, to be perfectly honest, unlike other places you could go to work, you actually have to work really hard here.

    Advice to Management

    None

    No opinion of CEO

    Pros

    The products are awesome, opportunity to learn a lot on the job, non-senior management connects very well with the engineers. Very engineer driven company.

    Cons

    No formal training offered (i.e. Microsoft offers development tools to users). Senior management has made decisions without thinking them through.

    Advice to Management

    A good CEO should have a strong engineering background, not just an MBA.

    Pros

    Autonomy, personal responsibility, support from the company with what you are trying to do. These are all some of the big pros!

    Cons

    Even though this place has many of the positives of a small company it can still be bureaucratic at times.

    Advice to Management

    Re-consider some of the workload; there is a great deal to get done.

    Pros

    Great work life balance, which is very important to me because I want to work to live not live to work. Great benefits - very caring of employees.

    Cons

    None. I would be the first to say them if there were any.

    Advice to Management

    Keep doing what you are doing. It is good for the employees, the environment and the company.

    Pros

    Here are a few pros for the list: Smart people, really great benefits, and a super good working environment also.

    Cons

    I have nothing bad to say, it is an all around great job.

    Advice to Management

    Get the stock prices up. Otherwise, they are doing a fantastic job.

    Pros

    What I really like best here and what is a big pro for me is that Adobe has a creative and very engaging environment.

    Cons

    I wish there was a clearer path for career advancement for those who don't start out in this particular field.

    Advice to Management

    Create a budget for development roles. Someone who isn't clearly qualified should be able to follow a path for career advancement.
