Pros

Total autonomy. Adobe really believes in the freedom to work how you work best. It is refreshing to see a company hire talent and then offer an environment where they can contribute freely. Lots of cool perks across the board. Great worldwide HQ campus. Really focused on being environmentally conscious, and of course who can forget free access to everything produced by Adobe. They even have a system for you to buy retail packaged software for your friends/family at a ridiculously discounted rate.

Cons

It's a big company so it can sometimes seem difficult to plot your career advancement, though they do offer help in this respect. I've heard of others taking up the offer to move around departments/roles, but honestly I think this is primarily geared at the most junior level employees. The reality is, they hire top talent and understandably want to see the fruits of their recruitment in a specific area they tapped you for.

Advice to Management

Keep it up! Shantanu is driving a great vision of the digital platform. Only advice I have is to continue to double down on the talent Adobe houses. The more opportunity for growth you provide the more tenure you retain.

    Disapproves of CEO

    Pros

    Very cool technologies
    Excellent benefits
    People are very open and receptive
    Everyone knows and admires Adobe and its products
    Worldwide business exposure

    Cons

    Expansion seems to all be done outside the USA - very limited growth within.
    No attention paid to giving people wider experiences, so heaven forbid you stay with a product too long, you'll be shown the door.
    Strategy explanation never seemed to make sense the last few years - maybe it's gotten too big to have a single focus?

    Advice to Management

    Adobe was started with some ideas that really shook up the world and created new opportunities. Now it seems the focus is on doing existing things more efficiently. That way lays suboptimal growth.
