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

Pros

* Great people
* Good opportunities if you act on them
* Interesting projects & technology

Cons

Corporate politics reign at Adobe. Given it's size and history, there is a lot of bad blood between different groups. This leads to different divisions creating similar technologies, instead of investing in a single best-of-breed technology.

Don't take this to mean that the company is on the decline... I just believe that it can be so much better.

Advice to Management

The CTO needs to realize he is not hearing the entire story and needs to foster a culture of unification.

    Cons

    hidebound processes, old fashioned world view, lack of communication between teams. Open development doesn't exist. Innovation is "by acquisition".

    Advice to Management

    Update the process. Stop blocking innovation from employees. Take risks.
