      Exceptional company with rigorous standards

      Pros

      I could write a novel of pros for Adobe. They have a genuine concern for employee well-being from physical to mental health, work-life balance, to job satisfaction. The whole company genuinely feels like a cohesive team, all working toward the same goals with the same passion and concern for one-another. Despite the organizations size, sub-teams feel like smaller businesses that are easy to navigate socially and professionally. The clear work-ethic throughout inspires an overall attitude of excellence and drives you to achieve and work harder daily. Goals are clear, the workload is communicated and understood.

      Cons

      Every company has it's flaws, but it's challenging to pull out anything more than a minor complain that would be commonly found anywhere. The workload for my time is a little higher than it maybe should be, but I'm confident efforts are constantly underway to make improvements and hire more great people to fill in. Unless you are willing to venture out and make yourself known, you could potentially feel isolated from a social perspective, especially during Covid, but even minor effort takes you a long way.

      Pros

      Supportive managers, talented colleagues, friendly work atmosphere, opportunities for skills development and movement within the organization, a caring leadership

      Cons

      I spent several minutes thinking about this - and couldn't come up with anything significant. I will say it is important to define your work-life balance. Set your boundaries, especially important these days when we are all working from home.

      Pros

      Adobe's Core Value said it all about what it is like working at Adobe. It is truly an exceptional place to work with teams of talented and creative individuals no matter if you developing, selling, or supporting customer on Creative Cloud or Digital Marketing or Acrobat. Adobe is a very dynamic place to work, you are constantly learning and experiencing ever changing innovations...what you expect from a technology company. With that said Adobe is still soundly rooted in best practice processes for Engineering and Business. It is the best of both world. Adobe is a company that you can grow your career and help change the world through Digital Experience.

      Cons

      There are not many vertical career opportunities however there are many horizontal career opportunities for an individual to develop their career.

      Great culture, but understaffing leads to burnout

      Pros

      Benefits, Culture, innovative and cool products

      Cons

      Not all areas are like this, but my department has been understaffed and run inefficient processes for some time. Attempts to fix this have been well intentioned, but end up creating more work and a vicious cycle.
