Pros

* great people -- lots of talented engineers
* great products -- mostly best-of-breed
* great customers -- creating tools for creative customers is fun
* great benefits -- totally solid

Cons

* hard to get new projects to live long enough to reach critical mass (but at least a failing project doesn't necessarily lead to layoffs, like it often used to)

Advice to Management

We should take more risks, letting more projects get a toe-hold. The brand is strong enough to handle more failures.

    Pros

    Good benefits, nice work life balance,telecommuting ok & great facilities

    Cons

    No leadership or vision for change management
    Limited opportunity for advancement
    Weak Middle management - very territorial
    Frequent reorgs/layoff = chaos and loss of productivity

    Advice to Management

    Cost cutting comes at a price. Your quality is suffering due to extreme cost cutting measures.
    Frequent reorgs and the lack of leadership to transition into reorg has cost the company
    Oh & how about innovating - new versions of CS & Acrobat can only do so much.
