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

    Pros

    Great Technology
    Collaborative Environment
    Access to Senior Management
    Forward thinking Company
    Ethical Values
    Macro-Management Style- You can be yourself
    Seasoned players. Adobe isn't a start-up but can adapt like a start-up without the immaturity

    Cons

    Change can come so fast, talent often is left behind
    Since it's a large organization, Adobe can be challenging to navigate. If you're the type of person that likes to be thrown into the woods with a Map/Compass and told to figure it out, Adobe is the right place for you.

    Advice to Management

    Spend more time developing career paths for employees, many leave because of lack of advancement opportunities.
