    Pros

    Amazing people and culture, nice offices, good benefits. Known as an industry leader and trusted brand.

    Cons

    Salaries lower than industry peers. Also a lot of red tape, owing to the fact that this is a large corporate.

    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 as an intern (less than a year)

    Pros

    The culture is what really differentiates Adobe. The people are *really* nice - the kind of people you'd like to grab a beer with after work! The pay is solid (but not above market). Plus there's free food, and the hours are very comfortable!

    Cons

    The consensus driven culture is great but sometimes makes moving things a little slow. But hey - that's the flipside of an awesome, team-based culture. Can't have everything!

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    If you're able to juice up the pay just a *bit* - you'll soon find that Adobe will start attracting talent *away* from the household superstars e.g. Google etc.

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

    Pros

    Great company with great products! Adobe tends to pay well and has wonderful benefits. They are the market leader in most of what they do, I was always proud to tell people I worked at Adobe. I worked remotely, but all of the Adobe facilities I visited were fantastic.

    Cons

    The biggest con (and the only reason I didn't rate 5 stars) is that every November, virtually everyone in the company has to be worried about their job. Adobe tends to go full force at something for a while and then rather than making small incremental changes they drastically change direction, budgets are slashed and you are gone. Very little commitment to good employees.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Management should do a better job helping good employees find new places in the company when direction changes.

    I have been working at Adobe full-time (more than 8 years)

    Pros

    The products are great, the people are great and the work environment is great. There is also good work-life balance amongst the employees.

    Cons

    The jobs are mostly for seasoned professionals and there is not much on the job training. Also, it is somewhat difficult to rise within the organization.
