It sounds like your colleague's using Acrobat's default compression
settings, which are -- to use a highly technical term -- icky. For a really
thorough explanation of how Acrobat's compression settings work, visit and go through the articles.

If you're a registered Adobe product owner, you're entitled to a free
subscription of Adobe magazine. If you don't subscribe, take the plunge.
The monthly Q&A section alone is worth the magazine's weight in gold.
