    Adobe

    Currently making $75k, which is very low compared to my counterparts. However, in February I’m supposed to get a salary adjustment with my yearly review. I got a job offer for $120k-150k which I turned down cuz I want to stay at Adobe. How/when/should/can I use this to leverage a good salary adjustment in Feb?

      Best company i've worked for

      Pros

      - The company has fantastic work/life balance and gives you a lot of autonomy. If you want to work from home, they're cool with it. If you want to work in the office, they're cool with it. - The company genuinely values employees, they want to retain people and will absolutely let you move teams/products/office locations/cities to keep your experience and knowledge in the company rather than watching you walk out. - Shantanu - Sr mgmt is good, they have experience in the space and have the people management chops to make working easier/enjoyable - They have a clear strategy & vision thats guiding their product investments and they communicate it regularly

      Cons

      - It's gets a little crunch-y leading up to product launches or big announcements, but thats kind of expected - Adobe is a company built on acquisitions, and while the business strategy is usually rock solid, sometimes the comms isn't. It's tough to get any insight about what other business units are doing unless leadership gives a super high level read out during an all hands or there's a specific task that requires collaboration. - Some decisions are made from a bit too far up the org chart, things can get a bit "top heavy" at times

      Still a good place to work...mostly

      Pros

      - Really smart coworkers - Good pay and benefits for the area - Good culture and lots of events - Great company perks - Great brand

      Cons

      - Lots of red tape in getting big initiatives pushed through - Cramped office with people jammed into every corner of the building - Office space designed for low profile walls to promote collaboration that really was more of a cost cutting initiative that made for a loud and distraction work environment - Little movement at the upper echelons which prevented movement beyond Sr. Mgr or Dir - Strong focus on hiring leaders from the outside instead of promoting within - Low appetite for taking risks - Lacking in ability for internal innovation that led, more often then not, to acquisitions for growth - Certain departments were very hesitant to allow any formal work from home programs - Recent high turnover in tenured employees due to internal drama and a culture that is starting to go down hill - Unclear organizational leadership at the BU level - Strong emphasis in diversity that over rotated to a negative bias towards over represented groups ie a perception that certain employees received promotions primarily because of belonging to an under represented gender or race. This includes an internal view by some that others are immune from termination because they fall in an under represented category even if those individuals were under performing

      Does not pay commission

      Pros

      They offer a flexible schedule and the ability to work from home

      Cons

      Commissions are already paid 2 months in arrear. For the second month in a row they are not paying out commissions that sales reps earned in December and January. This means that the commissions you earned in December are paid in APRIL. In addition, did they tell the company? No this is hidden and has not been communicated to anyone except the one off people who have asked.

      Pros

      - Team is extremely friendly, everyone there is really nice - In Domain location, so great food spots and environment - As intern, felt like a full-timer, not treated all that differently - Open office, lax hours, work from home is accepted. All of this is fine so long as you get your work done

      Cons

      - Most of the team is Ukranian, so sometimes bit hard to communicate - Although open office, not too much interpersonal contact all the time, most communication done through Slack

      Marketo Commercial CSM org is in full tail spin -2020

      Feb 24, 2020 - Customer Success Manager in Denver, CO
      Recommend
      CEO Approval
      Business Outlook

      Pros

      Unlimited PTO (but strings attached to take it). Stock options (but Adobe takes their taxes out of your stock credits). Ability to work from home Wednesdays (but can be taken away on management discretion). Co-workers are all very intelligent and great Denver office. Parking and commuter benefits to office off 18th and California Well stocked kitchen with snacks, drinks and food. Lunch provided last two business days of the month. Two kegs tapped on Friday after 3 PM. $360 yearly health credit (Most people used for ski pass) ~$1k dropped into HSA for high deductible healthplan per year Pet insurance offering.

      Cons

      Commissions not being paid on time because "Someone left the business." Compensation plans not being delivered until a quarter of the way through the fiscal year. Sales targets are increased by 10-20% over last year with less ability to meet them. Senior management never has answers for direct questions and is not genuine or forthcoming with what's really happening from top down decision making. Same Senior Management has been promoted for the team's performance, but creates negative culture putting extreme pressure on FLMs that is then transferred to FLM to CSM relationships. There is a palpable distrust and dislike for senior management throughout the org and cross-functional teams. This makes it difficult for any other team to want to work or support the Commercial CSM org. Crying, confusion, discomfort and overall uneasiness ripples throughout the entire org regularly. Feedback is rarely asked for, and when received goes no where. Renewal team operated without a manager for almost 12 months Layers of middle management have been added. Constantly changing and broken quoting tool. Accounts have changed hands multiple times, which is well known as a major complaint from customers as to why they leave Marketo. CSMs are the catch all for almost everything related to current customers, where more responsibility is added but compensation is not raised. Asking to utilize your unlimited PTO is only approved based on your performance. Favoritism from FLMs to their favorite CSM friends. No on-boarding or mentoring for new CSMs when they join the org. No known promotion track for CSMs. Overall lack of diversity on the team with only two POC in the entire org. Competitors are catching up with Marketo in regards to pricing and functionality which is making the CSMs ability to renew or expand customer much harder. Customers are expected to spend 8% more per year with almost no additional functionality added to their subscription. Auto-renewal language added to contracts as sneaky way to make them stay with the company. Product reliability has been viewed from customer perspective as going downhill. Forcing customers to purchase Professional Services to get basic help utilizing the product. Non-existent training on Marketo product itself. CSMs are expected to "learn as they go" while being the trusted adviser for the customers marketing decision making.

      An Amazing Employer That Wants To Help You Grow

      Nov 4, 2019 - Marketing Manager in San Jose, CA
      Recommend
      CEO Approval
      Business Outlook

      Pros

      A lot of companies expect you to just sit, put your head down, work for 8 hours, and go home. This is NOT that place. Adobe prides itself on its company culture and it shows tremendously through the leadership, its people, and its dedication to innovation. Some cool things about Adobe off the bat: they have a learning fund that encourages you to take classes, go back to school, or even go to conferences to help you develop in your career. There are a lot of on-site events for holidays, volunteer opportunities, and more so there is always something cool going on. Of course the wellness center is pretty awesome (and there are fitness classes you can take), and the food is pretty on point. One major thing that has been a refresher is that Adobe and the people who work here really put an emphasis on constructive and positive feedback: everyone here wants you to succeed. That energy carries throughout the workplace. You also feel very empowered to to help others as well, which creates this community and continuous cycle of trust, positivity, and communication. I will say this: Adobe is not for the faint of heart. "Good enough" isn't enough here. If you're okay with that, and you're an individual who likes to thrive, push, and succeed, then you will fit in just fine. There will be days where you will be putting in your time, and you'll have a 10 hour day. There are some days where you might leave a little early. What I will say is that you WILL take pride in the work you do, and nothing here is meaningless, at least in my opinion.

      Cons

      A work from home option would be nice, but I can also understand why they'd want people in office as it can be very hard to foster a work culture if employees are remote.
