    I worked at Adobe

    Pros

    Fun, fast-paced environment
    Benefits are extremely generous
    Compensation is fair
    Culture is what sets this company apart
    Company really invests in its employees
    Career advancement is empasized/encouraged

    Cons

    Some employees are underutilized and responsibilities are too rigid.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Transparency for employees is important. I felt that Sr. Management was sometimes overly optimistic or was too vague in explaining poor stock performance. However, please continue your efforts (Management) to make/keep this a great place to work and build a career.

    I worked at Adobe

    Pros

    It provides flexible hours. It's good for the engineers who want to work remotely. I have never met a couple of engineers in the same group for about four years. It provides a good benefit package. It has good QA teams.

    Cons

    No innovation, that's a biig problem in this company. It tries to retain the senior engineers (more thatn 10, 15 years with the company) because they can read/understand the lagacy code. Managers are afraid of losing them. Managers cut loose the less senior ones if downsized.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    The company needs new "blood" from outside. The new college gradutes are not new "blood". Try to recruit engineers from Google, Microsoft, and the others. Seniority kiils the innovation.
