    Pros

    Like all BIG companies, no scarcity of resources or opportunities
    Great work-life balance
    Innovation hub - latest and greatest going on all at all times.

    Cons

    Not all functions that rewarding, so you need to constantly look for ways to get job satisfaction if stuck in such a function.
    Compensation structure can be improved further. Not at par with companies of same stature.
    HIghly tilted towards engineering. Rest functions suffer due to this.

    Not that great firm as the Brand name suggests

    Former Employee - Computer Scientist  in  Noida
    Former Employee - Computer Scientist in Noida

    Pros

    Technical product based company
    Free lunch and dineer
    Flexible working hours

    Cons

    Indian style management, managers shout down people.
    Technology does not seem to be great compared to the brand that Adobe has.
    Verge large difference in increment in strong vs solid bands.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Judge the team members on the present work and not past achievements. A lot of people rest on their laurels and goodwills of past work, though they are not doing active work now.

    Pros

    Adobe is just perfect. Probably one of the companies u would want to retire from. If not for the relocation I would have continued working here. The management is cool and helpful. I would strongly recommend this place to work for! How I wish I could back to the place!

    Cons

    I don't see any cons much apart from the salary which is slightly lesser than your expectation.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Keep up the friendly environment which motivates the employees to work

    Pros

    Perks and benefits are great. Flexible Timings. Free Food. Work environment is great. Helpful People. Free Software. No restrictions. Great.

    Cons

    No career growth opportunities. No one cares about you if you are a QE. Stuck as QE forever. Cannot change your profile. Not valued (or promoted) as fast as others.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    There are a few QE who know better than Dev, identify and value them.
