Pros

Awesome products -- fun working on a product used by millions of people
Great Technology
High level of trust and respect for employees
Great work environment

Cons

Some employees have a lack of urgency for making needed product improvements. We need to be more customer focused. Sometimes we have great technology that is too hard for people to use.

Advice to Management

Drive accountability for more accountability from business and engineering leaders for ensuring that we are doing right by our customers.

    No opinion of CEO

    Pros

    - Very generous time off, including company shutdowns to ensure everyone actually uses it.
    - Non-confrontational atmosphere; colleagues are accessible, pleasant people to work with on a daily basis.

    Cons

    - Lots of silos. Core component groups take no responsibility for downstream use of their code, leading to lots of patches and not enough sharing of knowledge.
    - Lots of work done overseas. If you depend on one of those groups it can be tough to work out problems in a timely manner.
    - Too many groups have their own agendas, leading to a confusing technology stack.

    Advice to Management

    Flash may be the future, but it's 10 years old and showing its age. Start taking its stability and performance issues seriously or all of the partnerships in the world won't help.

    Pros

    The people, the cafeteria, the offices and the products at Adobe are great!! On a whole Sr. Mgm't does really try and does care about it's people and giving back to the community! I really respect them for this!!!

    Cons

    It is Jr. Mgm't that seems to drop the ball. Some of these individuals should not be managing people. Not only have these individuals gotten away with disrespecting members of their team in front of other team members but they also lack the people skills along with good communications skills needed to be a good manager. Some of these individuals have attended Adobe's classes on some of these skills, however around a week or so after completing these classes they seem to revert back to their old horrible self. These individuals should not be managing other people. My heart goes out to those people that still are working for these individuals. Definitely politics in this organization as Jr. Mgm't seems to be protected by their manager's who seem to overlook Jr. Mgm'ts weaknesses.

    Advice to Management

    I could say that Sr. Mgm't should look into the above information that was submitted but don't believe it will ever happen.
