Pros

Most of my colleagues are super--smart, hard-working, team-players, operate in the best interests of the company. Great innovation--it is incredible how much innovation is going on within the company. Cool products, cool brand, users love Adobe!

Cons

Organization is pretty flat, so some feel potential promotions is more limited.
Consensus-driven company (although in some cases is a good thing, it can bog down decision making, especially at the very top levels of the company).
Pay could be better--not sure how HR does its benchmarking, but we seem to have lower salaries than my colleagues at other high-tech companies in the Valley.

Advice to Management

Great culture, great products and innovation. Be aggressive in the market place and remain visionary, not just tactical. Make sure to not run functional groups, like legal, too lean for too long.

    Pros

    Great Benefits Package, Great Company if you are an Engineer

    Cons

    If you work in any G&A function (Legal, Audit, Supply Chain, Purchasing, IT, Order Mangement) in which Adobe Managers have been in the group for 10+ years, your advancement opportunities are nill, which is of course not what I was told during the interview. Managers are only interested in working you so that they can get ahead. Absolutely the worst company I have worked for.

    Advice to Management

    Get rid of the managers who don't do any work!!!
