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

Pros

For the most part, they allow your creativity to run wild and cultivate a culture of innovation. I am consistently presented with new and exciting opportunities and the company is constantly changing with the times. Obviously simply having their name on a resume is huge, but I've found there are plenty of reasons for that to be the case.

Cons

It seems unless you work 60+ hours/week, it's hard to move up per se. Although there are a lot of opportunities, they don't necessarily come with more cash/benefits. The yearly review process doesn't exist anymore and is an "on going" process. That's great in general, getting constant constructive feedback. However, what's yet to be seen is how this will work with promotions/recognition

Advice to Management

A clearer path to promotion possibly? More incremental monetary bonuses, especially spot bonuses, would go a great distance as well.

    I have been working at Adobe full-time (More than 8 years)

    Pros

    Adobe is a solid company with good benefits and programs. Overall is a very nice place with a good balance of work and life, and overall healthy working relationships. It has great products and interesting busiensses on which to work.

    Cons

    Like any sizable company can be slower moving than one would like, and somewhat bureacratic at times, with arcane processes and unclear approval lines.

    Advice to Management

    Move more quickly into new business models.

    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.
