Pros

Amazing product creation and innovation culture. Processes and systems in place to enable producing amazing products fast

Cons

Top management is very focused on pleasing the wall street

Advice to Management

You guys have a great strategy for the company... But do not kill innovation in areas which do not immediately look like they align with your vision. Some of the radically innovation does not often align with the current strategy

    Pros

    Great, smart people, good culture, good salary, benefits still good, always interesting projects and challenges.

    Cons

    A lot of products struggle to understand their marketplace, leadership has consistently made bad bets. Adobe used to create markets and product segments, but now it follows the leadership of other companies. Extremely distributed workforce makes for incoherent teams.

    Advice to Management

    Simplify and consolidate products and teams. Figure out a better way to grow products and innovation inside the company instead of buying other companies.

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

    Pros

    Has been a good career while in junior positions. Culture of the company seems focused very much on impressing internal leaders vs. making money for the shareholders. Business decisions often seem to be about proving that the company has made the right internal investment decisions, and wants to show how newly purchased technologies fit together nicely vs. actually building something desired by the market.

    Cons

    Opportunities to move up, however, are completely dependent upon team membership. If the team isn't growing, there are no opportunities. Moving to a higher level job in a new business unit is discouraged, leaving little option other than to wait for current senior staff to leave.

    Advice to Management

    Provide clear career paths for the company, that are consistent across products and business units. Allow staff to move to other product lines or business areas if they are ready to move up, rather than making them wait out a 'stuck' path, particularly if in a product line that is not adding staff, making it even less likely that any growth opportunities will emerge.
