    I worked at Adobe full-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    If this is your one of your early companies, you get to learn to do things independently. You can have fun at work (but that depends on the team too).

    Cons

    Decreasing quality of people. As number of people is increasing, more and more levels are being created in the hierarchy. Transparency is lost. Increasing micromanagement and decrease in actual managerial skills. The workplace is ridden with dirty politics now. The newly created leads are confused. They are still the individual contributors but they behave as managers (micro-managers). As a result, there is lack of trust on both the ends. And then there is unjustifiable favoritism. And now Adobe has even lost its position as a high paymaster. It is no more a dream company!

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    You don't need unnecessary levels in hierarchy. Managers and leads who just order their juniors and don't do anything themselves,yet take all the credit of their subordinates' hard work, such people are driving the good people away from the company. They are not assets but liability to the company. You should get rid of such people. You need to restore Adobe's old structure.

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

    Pros

    Good benefits, salary, if you can keep them. Used to be engineering/design centric like Apple, suffered under invasion of the MBAs.

    Cons

    M&As, offshoring. When I left it was more like Microsoft: Even marketing flying coach, bulk of dev offshored to Eastern Europe, China or India. Bureaucracy.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Try to go back to your engineering roots. Pick ONE direction and go with it for more than 2 quarters.
