No opinion of CEO

Pros

--excellent compensation
--private offices
--flexible policies
--diverse workforce
--fun products
--good on your resume

Cons

--many managers are promoted as a reward for time at the company--*not* for competence or true management ability
--in some areas, teams actively dislike each other (and even within some teams) and management either ignores or is helpless to solve the problems

Advice to Management

Less time should be spent paying lip-service to political correctness, and more to relations among coworkers--and set some standards and training for your management in how to manage people

    Advice to Management

    Although flash and related products are not key money making products for Adobe, these are very important for overall company strategy. Please compensate the employees equally for these products, otherwise talented employees will start looking elsewhere.

    Pros

    Environment was really helpful especially in development. All engineers are free to talk and help. The building is extremely nice and the amenities are top notch.

    Cons

    Sometimes the products are not the most exciting. Every product uses flash or so it seems, and speed is not always the first priority.

    Advice to Management

    Look into other options, flash is not the answer to everything. Overall, I feel there needs to be more innovation.
