    I worked at Adobe as an intern (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Adobe was an amazing internship, easily on one of the best experiences I have had. I really like my team and had a great internship. A few of the pros:
    - Great work culture with a respect for work life balance.
    - Employee perks are good but not excessive.
    - Dedicated, brilliant, and interesting employees.
    - Interesting products to work on.

    Cons

    Not many cons, occasionally as with any large corporation you see how some decisions from higher up take precedence over what teams are interested in doing. Team dynamics can be different, so you may like one team and not like another.

    Advice to Management

    Keep up the good work!
