Pros

Collaborative, supportive co-workers, the opportunity to work on market-leading products, flexibility on time/working from home.

Cons

Constant reorganization churn, way too many middle managers, poor opportunities for advancement, overwhelming workload. Focus is on management the company for the street, as a result, the focus on product innovation and quality is suffering.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Stop rewarding the ability to "manage up."

    Pros

    Fun people, interesting research, creative products and customers. Adobe has some of the smartest folks in the world contributing to some amazing tools.

    Cons

    Every year sees another reduction in benefits and opportunity. Salaries are lower than industry avg due to previous profit sharing program, which has been canceled without salary adjustments. Opportunities for advancement are minimal with much hiring done outside of company. Projects are often canceled suddenly or compete internally with other teams, and major applications are routinely sent for maintenance development in India or China.

    The reliance on Flash/AIR for internal tool development limits the abilities of teams to accomplish their goals more easily and reduces inter-team communication. The shift toward advertising metrics is pushing the creative tools development to the side. Lack of leadership at the top leaves many teams wondering what is in store for them.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Multiple quarters of record revenue should not result in large benefit reductions for the employees who contributed to that success. The advertising and online metrics business is important, but its success should not need to come at the detriment of the creative business.

    Pros

    The people are very talented and have great ideas. The benefits are fantastic (from flexible time off, to company break time during holidays, etc). The overall energy and atmosphere of the company is very positive. They invest a lot in career development.

    Cons

    There are many different business units that are segregated, and most employees have no input into what another part of their team is working on. However, this is a typical case with companies that actively acquire others.
