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

    Pros

    Work life balance
    Amazing perks
    Learning and development
    Reimbursement for health and further education
    Travel

    Cons

    Diplomatic environment can sometime take the sheen away. You have to stay relevant to market and be in good books of your manager. Most of Managers are highly insecure in the organisation and act as a bottleneck in your progress.

    Pros

    Great technology, fun people, generous rewards, profitable company, strong vision.

    Cons

    Lack of one Adobe persona to the customer, different BUs driving competing agendas.

    Advice to Management

    Turn vision into reality for the customer and empower the sales teams to present to their customer the one Adobe, measure and reward accordingly. Invest further in customer success, and increase investment in APAC.

    I have been working at Adobe full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    - Fantastic product and company vision
    - Generally strong culture and flexible working conditions
    - A lot of great people
    - Autonomous & proactive work ethic (unless in sales where you will be micromanaged)

    Cons

    - Local (AU/NZ) leadership is weak - agree that there are a lot of "yes men" who are just long standing sales guys, as per previous posts
    - An ever increasing amount of middle management who seem to do a lot of "strategy planning" but with no noticeable improvement for employees or customers. It seems like they spin a lot of plates to suit their own agendas. Plan, re-plan, re-plan...
    - Senior management have recently gone to the extent of moving themselves to a totally separate floor which completely removes them from the general workforce. Not exactly promoting an "open door policy".
    - Recent bad hires and resignations within sales management have completely turned the sales org haywire.
    - Repeatedly poor sales (Account Exec) hires has lead to a stressful culture
    - AU/NZ is a small operation and has little opportunity for major growth (in terms of headcount). Bear this in mind when considering career opportunities as your next step would likely be abroad (APAC or US), unless you play the game well and find yourself in a self-made middle management role as discussed above.

    Advice to Management

    - Clear out a lot of middle management who add minimal value. Many are in their roles to fulfil personal agendas rather than adding real customer value. Instead, empower more individual contributors who are capable.
    - Reward non-sales people more fairly.
    - Hire a new MD. We need stronger leadership.
    - Truly invest in customer success, hiring more senior people into that team.

    Take a look under the covers
