    Pros

    Great work environment.
    Excellent Package.
    Good Training.
    Challenging Global Environment.

    Cons

    Silicon Valley / San Francisco Location
    It was difficult to have to lay off one's staff and outsource all work to Asia but that was the ways things worked in those days ; I was offered the choice to continue as an outsourcing manager but I felt that there might be better opportunities out there instead so I left.

    Advice to Management

    I don't really have advice for management at a VP level because things have changed so much but the problems with housing in San Francisco can be a disincentive for people to move to the SFO/Valley Area

    Pros

    Great people. Great benefits. Great company. Great culture. Great vision. Great stock. Great management. I would recommend Adobe as a great place to work.

    Adobe wants everyone to work from an office. As a remote employee there is not a lot of opportunity for advancement unless you are willing to move.

    Advice to Management

    Stop the massive reorganization in the sales org every year. It takes 6 months to recover from it.
