    Pros

    Great work-life balance. Working in a fast-paced city, the hours are fantastic. The compensation is not as good as in finance, law or the professional services but being able to go home and have time to yourself more than makes up for it.

    Cons

    Office culture in my particular location is pretty poor. Some of the hires are less than stellar and seem to have been brought in to make up a head count rather than being brought in to be bright and engaged individuals looking to contribute.
    There is also a tendency for some of the women in particular to be unprofessional and rude, which they are able to get away with. It's becoming a real problem that is looking likely to be part of the reason I'm looking to leave, even after all this time at the company.

    Advice to Management

    Hire only from target universities/colleges. Select the best from the very top - nobody likes to be made to feel stupid by being dragged down by their colleagues. Have faith that the brand name WILL attract talent. It's quite clear the underperformers all have one thing in common - they simply don't have the strong academic background that seems to be a guarantee of on the job performance.

    Pros

    Great company values, good perks and benefits, and so on and so on

    Cons

    Pers growth depends much on subjective reasoning and varies from Account Director to Account Director.

    Advice to Management

    Be more open to new suggestions and walk the talk. This would make this office a really great place to work.

    Pros

    Adobe does provide great technology that works and that sales.
    There is a good balance between sales and customer satisfaction with clearly a long term strategy to improve the service and retain customers. You feel part of a company that is going somewhere.

    Cons

    Adobe is a busy place and there is always a lot to do and a lot to learn.
