I worked at Adobe full-time (More than 3 years)

Pros

Great benefits, perks, great technology. A lot of opportunity to move the business forward. Collaborative culture. For the most part, GREAT people to work with.

Cons

Not willing to truly invest in marketing. A fantastic brand that you never hear about. New business strategies flounder. Generally, management is very risk averse. The CEO is more of a technologist lacking interest in the value of marketing.

Advice to Management

Unwillingness to take enough appropriate risk to move new businesses forward will undermine the company in the long run. (e.g. The company bounced around an enterprise strategy for years, with good technology, but was never truly willing to make the right commitments despite throwing a lot of $$ at the problem.)
