Consulting is a tough branch to navigate
UX/UI Designer (Former Employee) –  Ronkonkoma, NYNovember 14, 2018
There was an overemphasis on billable hours which were controlled by sales. The culture changed over the years from a customer first to a demand to bill hours. There was a disconnect between new management and the philosophy we followed.
Pros
Work from home, flexible hours, ample vacation time, dedicated professional and personable coworkers.
Cons
Unclear path for advancement, unfocused management, this caused an anxiety riddled work environment.

Your manager is everything
Sales (Former Employee) –  RemoteOctober 23, 2018
Adobe is an amazing place to work, but who your manager is can mean everything. If you have a good one they can put you on an amazing career path, if you have a bad one, then you can find yourself stalled indefinitely.

Amazing culture - Contract to full time job security is limited
Business Systems Analyst / eComm & Product Launch (Current Employee) –  San Francisco, CAOctober 9, 2018
I greatly enjoyed my time at Adobe. My position was on a contract-to-hire basis and, sadly, the budget did not allow for conversion to full time when my contract was up.

I only can comment on Adobe as they were in the late 90's
Human Resources Assistant (Former Employee) –  Freemont, WAOctober 1, 2018
I started as a vendor in Customer Service then was hired as a full-time employee as an Administrative Assistant in HR.
They sent me to San Jose for training on posting jobs on their internal and external career sites. I also supported the HR Director at the time. I was there when they moved their offices to Freemont and then was part of a large layoff a few months later.

Enjoyed my time with Adobe, LOTS of options and opportunities for this growing software company. Have to remember that it is NOT a services business and professional services exists to drive license sales.

Adobe Cares
Licensing Specialist (Current Employee) –  Lehi, UTAugust 21, 2018
Everything that Adobe does says that it cares about it's employees. Even contract workers are able to participate in the corporate culture and are allowed to take advantage of some of some benefits.

The environment makes the company a great place to work overall, and the work always keeps you on your toes.

Account Manager (Former Employee) –  Lehi, UTAugust 13, 2018
Dealing with software consumers that are only interested in one particular software, Painting a picture of the full suite of products is key. Management was very intelligent in software and people skills.

Difficult to succeed in Education Sales
Territory Sales Representative (Former Employee) –  San Jose, CAAugust 10, 2018
Adobe's complex licensing structure makes it almost impossible to succeed in education. I started on a team of 9, 7 of them left within a year. Management is not attuned to this issue.

Admin (Current Employee) –  San Francisco, CAJuly 18, 2018
Great work culture. A lot of inclusion and events, however can be quite distant from everyone else. People don't really communicate much besides when an event comes.

Great Place to Work
Senior Business Systems Analyst (Former Employee) –  San Jose, CAJuly 18, 2018
A typical day was working with clients and teams members and working on objectives. Being in a management capacity, four to five meetings a day was common. I learned multiple management styles throughout employment. Workplace culture is open, honest, culturally rich and full of employee experiences (engagement opportunities). The hardest part of work was dealing with changing organizational leadership and strategies on localized levels, not at the Adobe leadership level. The most enjoyable part of the job was working with a vast array of amazing and wonderful people both directly and across geographical locations.

Team bonding was important to Adobe when I was there.. I believe they still enforce the weekly or monthly team bonding event. We used to have Friday Beer Bash and Boccie ball tournament.
