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

    Pros

    Good pay for most people, as Adobe strives to get best talent
    Relaxed working culture and it is entirely up to the individual if he wants to take on more
    Good brand and product, and that helps employees to get a edge in the jobs market after working here.
    Proud association as the company has done some path breaking things in the software market in the past years.

    Cons

    Lack of thought leaders as I have seen decisions being made on the fly and that leaves a lot unstructured and at risk
    Diplomatic management who will shy away from being candid about anything to do with your growth and career and tend to keep things grey at all times. There is a desire that they walk the talk...lot of gyan on being a employer of choice but when things get tough , I have been given the run around and flowery words with no action.
    People dependent to the extent that work may stop because someone key is on a vacation.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Would like to see a more capable leadership and stable decision makers with actual skills and not hit or miss approach.

    Pros

    Adobe is a big name which is getting bigger with a lot of opportunities for young graduates and experienced alike.
    They pay you nicely and have a good work atmosphere.

    Cons

    Not too sure about the growth opportunities or changing roles which you want to get into. Seen people staying at the same profile for years..

    Pros

    Worked in Adobe for about 2 years, the pros are good pay, good food, not much work pressure and some good opportunity to learn different things.

    Cons

    extremely bad management. Old products are changed to provide new User Interface and sell them in market. Not fair review cycle. The presumption about certain people stays forever even if they are not performing.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Needs to judge people by their current performance not by past achievements. And please stop selling the old wine in new bottle by marketing strategy.

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

    Pros

    A lot of smart people work here so there is no shortage of talent and experience to learn from. You get to interact and work with all the stakeholders very closely.
    Adobe is great at taking care its employees. It provides great pay, good health plan , regular events keep everyone interested and there is a freedom to work in the way it pleases you.

    Cons

    With inclusion of a lot of new people, Adobe has lowered the standard of people they are hiring. The standard of discussions among the peers is reduced a great deal. Apart from this, there is a lot of stagnation in the older projects. If you are trapped in one of those, there is no scope of innovation or growth .

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Kindly improve the standard of hiring, please focus on quality and not quantity

    Pros

    Work life balance is awesome! Environment to work is awesome. Free lunch and dinner provided. Time to time trips and parties are organized to keep the mind fresh.

    Cons

    Growth is constant at Adobe. Also, devlopers are treated far better than testers in terms of salary. Bit of monotonous work for testers.
