What does the company do well? Adobe does many things well, but most of they are a resource for creative professionals across the world. I wouldn't even be able to do my job without Adobe programs, especially Photoshop since my profession is photography. There are certain things you can ONLY do with Photoshop.
What does the company not do well? Their subscription-based service is a hassle and alienates people who want to own software. Additionally, the price tag keeps increasing and is a turn-off for people who have been with Adobe for a long time.
What do you wish you had known about the company before using? The learning curve and their subscription price increase.
