    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 have been working at Adobe full-time (more than 10 years)

    Pros

    Have been here for more than 10 years. Overall well balanced company.
    Work life balance is good is most teams

    Cons

    Bonuses used to be better before. They are okay now.
    Layoff every year for the past 3-4 years
    Too many re-org. Forget promotions due to re-orgs, as every year you might be moved to a different team, and no manager would promote you till you work for them for more than an year, and you cannot work for more than an year, since the team would get affected by a re-org. Its happened with me three years in a row.
    Some teams are super aggressive, so if you want a good work life balance, make sure you get into the right team.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Less re-orgs
    What happened to profit sharing. Despite the company doing well, once profit sharing was taken away, it never came back.

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

    Pros

    Outstanding company benefits--the Employee Stock Purchase Plan is second to none
    The Lehi, Utah campus is only two years old and has already become "THE Place to Work" in Utah and Salt Lake counties--gorgeous facility with open, collaborative spaces, excellent café, game rooms, and a friendly team environment.
    Extremely progressive company that values employees--I truly feel needed and wanted with freedom to make decisions and have support at all levels.

    Cons

    Cubicle space is getting tight due to success and growth.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Start Phase 2 as we are running out of space.
