    Pros

    I can't say this enough: Adobe really appreciates and values their employees. The benefits package is universally fantastic. I've seen that the emphasis on work-life balance can vary from team to team, but I'm very fortunate to work with a great group of people who realize the importance of an occasional mental health day here and there. In my role, I'm able to focus on a variety of things that I'm interested in, plus I've been able to enroll in training courses to broaden my knowledge base.

    Cons

    As I said earlier, the executive team had a history of changing directions, rather significantly, on a yearly basis. However, the company strategy is beginning to solidify around the creative and marketing segments, and I'm inclined to believe the leadership team has found a strategy that's working in the market and they want to stick with for the foreseeable future. I really wish we had a commuter shuttle between San Jose and San Francisco like some of our Silicon Valley brethren, but I'm not sure we have enough employees making the trip on a regular basis to make it a viable service. Typical office politics have a tendency to delay projects, but I think that's a universal complaint among many companies.
