    Great work, great people, company tearing it up right now! Adobe is hip once again.

    Group Manager (Current Employee) Lehi, UT

    Pros- Very strong compensation packages. With the stock up, it's even more attractive - particularly with the employee stock purchase program where you get to lock-in your 'buy' price for up to two years even if the stock price is rising.
    - Management is open, creative, and solicits big ideas from anyone in the company.

    ConsThe working titles for employees seem to under-represent their actual status in the industry relevant to others with similar experience. For example...a group manager at Adobe is usually Director at other similar companies, senior directors at Adobe are often VP levels or exec directors at other companies. I know several people who've taken 'lesser titles' in lateral job moves.

    Advice to Senior ManagementReward your leaders with more senior titles representative of what they'd have at other companies.

    An Amazing Growth Opportunity - The Sky Is The Limit Here

    Anonymous Employee (Current Employee) Lehi, UT

    ProsThe people we've been able to hire and work with at Adobe Utah are loyal, hardworking, and willing to help bring-up the whole of the group-- for these reasons and others, this is the type of place you look forward to coming to Monday mornings for years and years. This place is amazing! In the seven plus years I've been working here there have been many promotional opportunities; it's very much a merit-based organization where there is plenty of opportunity for top producers... with unmatched benefits/comp for the area as well.

    ConsNo complaints as of now.

    Advice to Senior ManagementDouble-down on Utah, the talent and loyalty here are great.

    The Best Company to Work For In Utah, No Contest!

    Renewal Specialist (Current Employee) Lehi, UT

    ProsAwesome people, great benefits, good work life balance, totally fair. Adobe truly does value their employees. They bend over backwards to make sure their employees are happy and productive. I really love working here, it was my dream to get on at Adobe, and when I finally did after a year and a half of trying to get hired, I was NOT disappointed, in fact, things only got better! Personal growth and moving up is a huge focus here. I was surprised how much they encourage us to grow and strive to be able to move up in management or other positions. The on-boarding training is very effective, and the stock options are unbelievably generous. Not to mention the Lehi Facility is phenomenal. All around, I just love working at Adobe. Even though every day I don't love the tasks I'm doing, I can still honestly say I love my job, just because I feel valued, and honored to work here.

    ConsLong Interview process for some positions. It is a HUGE company, so there are some bureaucratic things you need to deal with, along with long wait times for certain things to get done, but overall, it's not so bad for a company that's so big. I have noticed that certain budget cuts have lead to things not being quite as epic as they have in the past, but, who can really blame them for this anyway?

    Advice to Senior ManagementStay connected and continue being open to feedback given by employees.
