I have been working at Adobe full-time (More than 5 years)

Pros

If you examine the DNA and history of this company, you can rest assured that Adobe will be around for a long time. They have strong values, great focus on taking care of employees and doing the right thing. Holistically, they are very adaptable for a company so large, adjusting and transitioning to new markets and opportunities as they arise.

Cons

The larger this company grows, the harder it is for it to be nimble enough for fast growth markets. This size in a traditional management structure creates a lot of management overhead that ends up being a burden/more confusing in terms of establishing a clear direction and vision for the company's future.

The annual round of layoffs is quite inefficient and threatens to eliminate lots of great talent within the company.

Advice to Management

My biggest piece of advice for the management at the company is to put a little more effort in retaining great talent when you go through a round of layoffs and non-performance based position eliminations.

    I worked at Adobe full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    I enjoyed working here for several years. Very flexible, nice and smart people, good compensation, interesting projects.

    Cons

    Yearly layoff (regardless of your performance) really turns down and discourages employees around November/December. I saw off many colleagues who worked on the same floor. That was very depressing too.

    Advice to Management

    Adobe is now moving toward positive directions. Keep up good work and share profits with employees who contribute to the company's growth.
