What people are saying about Adobe

I am open to referring to Adobe. I exited MBB after 3 years and I have gained on everything: pay, working hours, culture, employee wellbeing, interesting projects, growth prospects, senior leadership exposure and even holidays. Talented consultants - don’t think twice. Jump to tech (and in tech, to Adobe!) Adobe

- 5.0Jun 4, 2014Anonymous EmployeeFormer Employee, more than 5 yearsSan Jose, CA
Adobe has a great ethical culture of delivering mind blowing products while preserving a great balance of life and work. This derives from the founders, Chuck and John, and has been preserved because of their active involvement on the Board and because so many key contributors to this culture Adobe have stayed and not chased other opportunities. . The brand is very powerful worldwide and the pay and benefits are outstanding.
It is inevitable that a culture that does such a great job of preserving work-life balance will have pockets of operations where the pressure to deliver is very intense (sales, radical updates to products such as making it all cloud based). Also, the Omniture acquisition brought in a lot of people who were in the mold of their former CEO Josh James who was selfish and self-promoting and the antithesis of Chuck and John. They are very political and a continuing risk to Adobe's culture.5

Good Employee benefit policies like Annual Health Packages
Poor and inefficient management leading to toxic work culture

Interesting, diverse product line offers a choice of career paths. Offices in a wide variety of geographical locations gives the opportunity to work with people from many cultures.
Lots of thrashing of priorities and a general lack of management direction. The overall culture has suffered since Chuck and John retired.2

Work culture of Adobe is very good and creative. People are here always ready to guide you.
You will get salary in comparison to the other other multinational companies.

1. The benefits are amazing. Hands down better than most companies: sabbatical, unlimited PTO, 2 weeks paid shut downs (US). Health fund. Learning fund. WFH fund. All the funds! 2. The people The best culture and most diverse company I have worked at and they strive to improve this more and more. Some people have been here for a few months, following an internship. Some have been here longer than I've been alive! 3. Opportunities I really feel I can switch teams or shift career goals and that my management would support me on this 100%. 4. The work It's creative, it's loving the customer. We're all passionate about creativity and helping our users get the most out of our products.
Company priorities shift regularly which could be a pro or sometimes a con. A lack of interoperability between our apps and products hinders a lot of teams from getting things done and frustrates the customer.

1. Full freedom to choose the type of work. 2. Extremely employee friendly work environment 3. Amazing resources to learn from along with a generous education reimbursement program. 4. Usually, the company is fair with respect to appraisals and recognitions.
1. Being an engineering company, the program management role is a bit sidelined. 2. Being visible in front of leadership in the pgm role is difficult. 3. Less urgency. Might not be the best for people who like extremely dynamic and fast paced work culture.
