Pros

- Very reasonable hours; I almost never work weekends (only about once a year during "crunch time").
- Very friendly place to work, not at all confrontational or competitive.
- People at Adobe are less nerdy than at some other companies, perhaps due to all the design-oriented products that the company makes.
- I think the company is in a fairly good place in terms of future growth potential.
- Steep discounts (about as steep as you can get) on all those great Adobe products.

Cons

- Although my peers are pretty good programmers, they are not as good as the people I used to work with at another large software company.
- Adobe is not the kind of place that is "changing the world" in the way that Apple and Google are.

Advice to Management

Adobe really should do a better job at college hiring. I feel that we seldom get the top-notch students from the nation's top computer science universities. There are some awesome people coming out of these schools, and Adobe should be trying to get more of them.
