    Pros

    Lot of good people around. Compensation is good.

    Cons

    Technologically skewed. There is no work from home - a rather absurd focus on time spent in the office.

    Advice to Management

    Be open to new technologies

    Pros

    Good work-life balance, sports options including Lawn and Table Tennis, Basket Ball, Volley Ball and foosball with gym facility, good and free food and nice people.

    Cons

    I guess this is same for most of the US based companies, the work is good only in some teams. Have to wait a lot at metro station for cab.

    Advice to Management

    Please be clear about Intern to Full time job conversion policies.

    Pros

    - Was a really good company to work for in Sales
    - Amazing products, good work culture, open dynamic and no politics
    -Cared about its employees.
    -HR used to be strong now just a rubber stamp especially in India.

    Cons

    -Horrible now specially in sales in India.
    - Its a systemic cleansing of the entire team replaced by new jokers without any clue of business or human emotions
    - In India Sales you have to be a boot licker to progress,. You are targeted just because you have been in the system for long
    - If you are old then you don't know how to work is the general thinking
    - HR is a mute spectator and HR guys are invited to sales parties and gifted expensive wines
    - This all even when most of the big deals are driven and closed by the older sales managers.
    - Its sad what has happened in Adobe India in Sales and they will never be the same company that they were.

    Advice to Management

    - Have a look at how and who is delivering the goods?
    - Grow some backbone and call a spade a spade
    - Change the HR leadership in India, they are funny to say the least and are corrupt.

    Pros

    Company is seeking for the new areas to grow, so this is great time for engineers and researchers to get good working experience. Company is open for new ideas and appreciates those who provides those. Work politics is absent.

    Cons

    Work quality is dependent on team (although I was fortunate to get into the good one). Many products in India are known to be in maintenance mode, and not good to work for freshers.

    Advice to Management

    Looking towards both US and indian managements, US managers looked to be more involved with employees and more eager to work on new ideas and products. Indian mgmt team can be more open for new products.

    Pros

    Free food in the canteen is great. Pay and benefits are ok. That is all that is good about this company.

    Cons

    They have absolutely NO idea of how to value employee skills and how to utilize those skills for the benefit of the company. Politics rules in this company.

    If you are a boot licker, you get promoted... If you are straight forward, you cannot survive.

    Work environment is terrible.. I think slaves were better treated... Work pressure is far too high and just causes health issues. Constructive criticism is NOT tolerated. Each manager cannot think beyond their own narrow minded teams for the benefit of the organization as a whole.

    Quality of products leave a LOT to be desired... Terrible security reviews of their products - Flash is a classic example. I am not surprised they recently got hacked... It was a disaster waiting to happen.

    Advice to Management

    Learn to respect peoples skills. Learn to think beyond each team and learn how to utilize skills and resources for the betterment of the products and the company.

    Pros

    Food is terrific. The best.

    Cons

    Everything else. Really nothing to write home about beyond great food.

    Advice to Management

    Management in India is too uptight to take advice.
