Pros

Pretty good salaries and excellent benefits, very nice environment with personal office for every engineer. Work on products everybody recognizes. Almost no everyday pressure from mid-level management, with accent on overall performance.

Cons

Management chain sometimes is way too long and includes middlemen far from both engineering and decision making. Engineering job title structure is flat (it's common for Adobe to have Computer Scientists with 10+ years of experience and Senior Computer Scientists with 15-20 years) - might be a problem when you change a job.

Advice to Management

Less concentrate on Flash and stop war with Apple. Do not send so many jobs to Indoa and China. Flatten the management chain.

    Approves of CEO

    Pros

    Adobe is a good company with great products. If you are on the right team you could be working on some cutting edge technology.

    Cons

    As the company has grown some of the teams have grown large and there is lot of maintenance work. There are some very smart and senior people and it could be difficult to receive promotions.

    Advice to Management

    Management should address the growing bureaucracy in the company. Adobe should also give more attention to employee career growth and development.

    "Great company, but possibly in decline."

    Pros

    Good culture, although declining. Lots of opportunity, if you are proactive and push it. Solid benefits, although declining. Excellent work/life balance, if you want it.

    Cons

    Sr. Management becoming much more insular. Seem to becoming more tone deaf- to wall street, to customers, and even to our own employees. Transparency- once a hallmark of Adobe, is declining. Clinging to a shrink wrap world.

    Advice to Management

    get more aggressive about driving innovation. Stop trying to protect our shrink wrap empire at the expense of new technology that will pave the way in the next 20 years.
