    Adobe doesn't actually live the values it preaches.
    Management and HR are vindictive and retaliatory while pretending at first to be friendly (senior manager up)
    Adobe will ignore HR issues and even scrub their name from press articles to create false impression of cleanliness.

    Very vicious competition amongst mgmt, unethical behavior encouraged.
