Senior Software Engineer (Former Employee) – Mountain View, Ca – 30 April 2017
I was hired at Adobe to help develop hardware accelerator boards for Postscript. Adobe was making accelerator chips to process postscript and my group put those on Sun SBus cards. Low level software was created to route the appropriate PDL info through the accelerator to speed rip times. My job was to work with the hardware engineers and develop the Solaris device drivers to route data into and out of the Sbus board.
Sadly the realization occurred that rapidly increasing processors were evolving faster than the accelerators and the project was becoming untenable.
Sr. Consultant (Former Employee) – Ottawa, ON – 28 May 2013
Pros: - an innovative place to work - top talents all around - compensation and benefit package are at the upper end for an IT/high-tech company
Cons: - business is heavily driven/impacted by meeting financial numbers, so there is a constant anticipation as end of a quarter is approaching - no roots of Canadian company values could sprout in Adobe Canada - Ottawa office in particular. - often weak/fear run management (Ottawa office)
