Adobe no longer top place to work.

Finance Manager (Current Employee)
San Jose, CA

I have been working at Adobe

ProsStill has monopoly on many products. ESPP plan still has 2 year look back. Good severance package when laid off.

ConsEmployees overworked. Bad work/life balance. Short sighted management. No clear company direction for future other than outsourcing jobs to India. Salaries are below 50th percentile. Adobe is now like any other company out there.

Advice to Senior ManagementAdobe needs to realize that it's only as good as its employees it can retain. Recent changes at Adobe have made the company a sub-par place to work. When economic times turn around, be prepared for a mass exodus.

No, I would not recommend this company to a friend
