    I worked at Adobe full-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    Brilliant, brilliant technology.
    Fanatical brand association.
    Awesome (though young) team.
    Can succeed just because of the above.

    Cons

    Could not execute in the enterprise market, is still constrained by the legacy of the desktop go to market model and BU structure.
    Country manager does not own whole business or P&L across BU's and functions.
    Needs to grow up fast.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    "Enterprise" is not just a word, it's a structure, a style of business, a resource model. You can choose to go one way or the other now - don't waste the potential of what might be.

    I worked at Adobe full-time (more than 5 years)

    Pros

    Good salery and other benefits. The strategy is syncronised towards big customers expertations and furture needs.
    Have a good understanding of keeping staff updated needs investments in training and summits.

    Cons

    The constant updates of versions of programs and more programs there is added all the time is a big challange.

    There is a big gap between business oriented managers and more creative innovative managers there in particular frustrates the creative types Adobe with creative solutions needs in their staff.

    I really didn't liked their Intranet and found it confusing instead of being a help performing my daily business.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Some Managers are very deep into US culture and ways of thinking.
    They could get more business value from dropping US managers outside US.
