    I have been working at Adobe full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Adobe is well known and the pros are many they include benefits, pay, opportunity, people etc.

    Cons

    Ottawa has less growth and therefore less potential to grow but in general that can be overcome with a good reputation and connection with hiring managers. The culture in SJ is a bit creepy with the concentration on "getting ahead"

    Advice to Management

    Ottawa has some talented people take advantage of that!

    Pros

    Excellent company to work for with a lot to offer.

    Cons

    Current attitude towards remote employees. There are a plethora of remote employees in Adobe that are superstar performers and are critical to the company. Unfortunately there is a big push to go away from remote employees.

    Pace can be hectic, travel can take a toll if you’re not prepared for it
