    Pros

    Have a good work life balance.
    Good benefits especially the ESPP purchase plan
    The CEO has a very good understanding on current trends in the industry and is willing to make changes.

    Cons

    It very much depends on the team. Some teams are young and like a mini startup.
    Some teams are full of old people, and it is hard to get promoted because they want you to wait until certain years despite you might be already qualified.
    There were a lot of reorganization and planning without solid action items.

    Pros

    Lots of turmoil and dysfunction in the last couple of years, we're finally seeing the light. Lots of improvement in the Inside Sales org in the last couple of months with a change in leadership. Increased communication and more transparency is making things feel more at ease. There is more sense of a clear career path. Finally there is a a positive outlook and morale is up in the office

    Cons

    Quotas and definition of roles needs to be defined clearly.

    I have been working at Adobe full-time

    Pros

    Great salary and benefits. Nice environment.

    Cons

    Ultra focused on newbies to the detriment of longtime, experienced employees. Too focused on getting their workforce to appear young when they are really managed by old executives set in their old ways.

    Advice to Management

    Put some value towards the employees who have helped build the company and products to where it is today.

    Cons

    -The PPT deck (and presentation) is a main communication currency here. Often, I think a summary email would be much more efficient.
