    I have been working at Adobe full-time

    Pros

    literally changing the world through digital and creative experiences. Fantastic culture and team orientation. Incredibly smart teams who lack ego. Recommend highly!

    Cons

    no real downside, you need to bring you A game here for sure. Definitely a place where work ethic is key. Adobe does run lean but that also stretches talent also

    Advice to Management

    Be great to stay aggressive on the acquisition front and continue to innovate across the business. Hold the culture as it is and continue to attract top talent

    Pros

    Adobe Global Services employee here - great opportunities. Fantastic work relationships. Intelligent company with integrity and a bright future. Company is willing to try new software, experiment with new processes. Generally speaking - amazing to work here.

    Cons

    As a new employee it's sometimes tough to find the right team to answer questions. This is a function of the size of Adobe, so I understand why.

    Advice to Management

    Teach me Obi-Wan, I want to be a Jedi like you!

    Adobe has a very relaxed management style. People are encouraged to be creative in how they solve problems, no matter what the role.

    Like many large companies it can be hard connecting between departments.

    I have been working at Adobe full-time

    Pros

    1. Well managed company with a great culture overall
    2. Clear vision and corporate strategy coupled with consistent execution
    3. Excellent compensation, benefits and rewards programs
    4. Superior onsite amenities (gym, cafes, facilities and services)
    5. Generous time off programs - PTO, sabbaticals, and shutdowns
    6. Stock price continues to rise

    Cons

    1. Working remote is discouraged
    2. Promotions and recognition limited to whether you fit into the circle
    3. Not all groups operate in line with corporate values related to culture, work life balance and diversity of thinking
    4. Too few women and minorities in management (mostly only Caucasian or Indian males)

    Advice to Management

    There are a few pockets in the company where it is a good ol' boys club, and women are overlooked for promotions, recognition, etc. I am at the point where I am not sure that it is possible to get ahead in such an environment. I am considering exploring other external opportunities. Adobe will lose many strong and high-performing women if this trend does not change.

    Pros

    The folks on my team are some of the most talented and creative people I know. I count myself lucky to collaborate with them.
