    I have been working at Adobe full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Great office, nice facilities and benefits overall. work/life balance varies by group/team or organization.

    Cons

    Management never changes, too many tenured executives who can't keep up with current technologies, very little room for personal growth,

    Advice to Management

    Let's get some fresh faces in here. If teams have lots of turnover, perhaps look at the management and not blame the individual contributors.

    I have been working at Adobe full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Work life balance, stock plan, compensation, health benefits, family perks, great facilities, line managers, technology, executive leadership, people, spiffs, cafe

    Cons

    No formal training which results in longer ramp times. Quotas have doubled without a clear explanation as to why. Inside Sales leadership has little sales experience which is apparent and has resulted in changes to process which has affected overall pipeline for Adobe. Do to the lack of pipeline, there is now unnecessary stress being felt from the executive level all the way down. Lack of trust in inside sales Sr. leadership has resulted in top talent to leave. Morale is at all time low which is being shrugged off. Not only have we lost top inside sales talent, we are now starting to lose line managers that can no longer refrain from expressing their concerns. I'm afraid that concerns within our org fall on deaf ears as upper management is too prideful to admit that they are wrong and unwilling to make changes. Overall, I'm hopeful for the future but wouldn't put my money on things changing anytime soon.

    Advice to Management

    Direct line managers are great but upper management has completely sucked the life out of the org. When having meetings with org, it is not wise to put a muzzle on team telling us not to ask "career limiting questions." This is taken as a threat. Take time to truly listen to your inside sales team and management and try and implement some of the suggestions given instead of completely ignoring them. HR, if all of the negative comments here on Glass Door about our inside sales org are being reviewed, please do something quickly to help. Last as I reflect upon Adobe's core values of Genuine, Exceptional, Innovative & Involved, I can tell you that our current inside sales Sr. leadership does not currently align with these values which is why we are experiencing the problems that we are. HR PLEASE HELP!!!

    Pros

    Great company, benefits, clear career trajectory - solid leadership. Wonderful experience so far.

    Cons

    Great benefits all around, however; no lunch and limited in-office treats. Could take some tips from some other established digital leaders that have proven return on employee investment. Small price to pay, and will only add to all of the other wonderful Adobe employee perks and benefits.

    Advice to Management

    Keep doing what you're doing, and perhaps plan to invest some additional time in evaluating the effectiveness of some of the decisions your leads in your shiny new Ad Tech acquisition are pushing through. Rewards, recognition, and promotion seem to be centered on the sales organization, while your client services organization takes the back seat. Don't forget who keeps these clients spending.
