    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.

    Freedom

    Former Employee - Program Manager in San Jose, CA (US)
    Former Employee - Program Manager in San Jose, CA (US)

    I worked at Adobe full-time (more than 10 years)

    Pros

    I had the freedom to be creative and come up with new ideas. We had major perks and a beautiful building. The location was awesome and underground parking was a plus.

    Cons

    Some really bad managers who were put in that position for political reasons. It made the employee invisible and therefore having no chance of being heard since the upper management only listened to our management who in several cases should not have representing us.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Understand who is managing your people, and have them there for the right reasons.

    I have been working at Adobe full-time (less than an year)

    Pros

    The team that I work for here in Canada is absolutely great. It's a positive work environment, no tolerance for gossip. We go for drinks together after work etc.

    Cons

    It's a fortune 500 company ranked in the top 100 employers of planet earth. The expectations for performance are high. If your a top performer, love life and want to make great money, jump in!

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Glad you stopped the chopping block which caused a decrease in employee morale after the recession. Great work!
