Pros

I respect Adobe's management/senior leadership and believe that the company has a solid strategy for meeting the challenges of the future. Each employee's role and contribution is respected, something that is very hard to find in similar companies. Finally, while not as good as in the past, the overall benefits/compensation plans are solid.

Cons

There seem to be very little opportunities for career advancement, definitely a sense of having to "do the time." Also, the culture can sometimes feel a bit "stodgy" -- innovation/change not always embraced.

Advice to Management

Consider stronger paths to career management/advancement

    Pros

    Benefits and pay is on par and everyone seems happy that stays. Adobe tries to make things better for employees by throwing activities and maintaining a balance. There are some cool technologies coming out of Adobe and if your a fan-boy you will be very happy here. People respect families in Adobe some people have been around for +20 years and for a high-tech company that is still producing some forefront technologies that is great. It's a leading software producing company that has done some good strategic moves to keep things fresh.

    Cons

    Moving fast is hard and there is a lot of isolation. Management could be better sometimes you are left to fend for yourself. A lot of teams doing the same thing and not enough communications across the company. Everyone is doing there own projects and you get a lot of soloing of resources.

    Advice to Management

    More communications between teams and ensure that new employees get assimilated properly to ensure morale is good.

    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.
