    Pros

    - They really care about learning & development here. I know if I want to grow my career, I'm equipped and my manager's are too.

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

    Pros

    Chances to work on large scale, challenging projects. Good benefits. Lot's of different teams with their own projects going on.

    Cons

    Company change agenda often. Large to small scale layoff every year, doesn't matter how the company performed. Used to have really good culture, now is just about average.

    Advice to Management

    Other than the profits, focus more on making good products for the users.

    I worked at Adobe full-time

    Pros

    Family-oriented benefits, great product momentum on Marketing Cloud and great brand with Photoshop.

    Cons

    Not a lot of options for career-development relative to other companies.
    Odd characters in executive management on the Creative Cloud side.
    Too hard to get stuff done- so many councils, committees and job overlap, micro-manager execs. Creates a lot of churn where you're really busy, but not on customer-facing value-added work.

    Advice to Management

    Empower your people and let them make decisions.

    Pros

    Adobe as a company is great. Direct line managers are great.

    Cons

    If you want to get a great education and learn a lot Join the Inside sales department. You'll learn how to take a outstanding Department and run it into the ground in less than 4 months. You'll learn exactly how not to lead and motivate people, You'll learn how to ignore people and only rely on data. You'll learn how to take a simple successful system and over complicate it with busy work and pointless validations. You'll learn how to forget about the customer and doing what is best for them. You'll learn how to create an environment with no path to success. You'll learn how to talk out of both sides of your mouth.
     I am so thankful for this experience for now I know exactly what not to look for in my next company and how to not lead.

    Advice to Management

    The upper management team should be embarrassed that they have failed so many people. This isn't a game, we aren't genie pigs, these are peoples lives, families, and careers. Admit that you have failed, own it, and take a drastic step back. Fix the territories, developed a better realistic standard, and let people work and sale. Remember the people and the customer are number one and that data isn't always right. Take care of those that have been loyal for years, compensate them for the wrong and financial stress you have caused, respect their knowledge and experience. Make a real sincere effort to retain those that are leaving. Get rid of the bloated support staff. Bring back the fun and kick a** attitude!
