Adobe is a great place to advance your career as a woman. The company invests in resources and development opportunities for women, more than I've seen many other companies do.

The HR group doesn't seem to understand that the issues for technical women may be a little different than the issues for women in technical roles. They are also spending a lot of time drilling women in improving their EQ, but AFAICT not much time working with the men in leadership who may need some help understanding the role they're playing in the attrition of women at mid-level.

    Maybe. Many parts of Adobe are very good. The group I worked in was not. It was an engineering group run by older white men who were very entrenched, and gave lip service to diversity. If you decide to consider a job there, do some research on how women in similar positions in your specific group (if they exist) are progressing in their careers.

It is a true boys network where the majority of senior roles are filled by men

The culture, the people - they are amazing. There are exceptions to the rule anywhere you look, but I can't imagine being so supported elsewhere!

Take advantage of all the opptys to be known and meet people across the functional org, and up the mgmt chain. Having a good network for information, influence, etc. it really helps to get things done. A focus now on women and helping them get visibility, etc.

    The biggest challenge for me was all the conference calls, especially when working with another geo like India. Late night and early morning calls were the norm to stay in sync with those teams.

  • Took Maternity Leave Here? (Weeks)

    16 paid / 4 unpaid

    Hard to remember - I took off 6 months total thought. The max from CA, 4 weeks for my sabbatical, and perhaps remainder was unpaid... Since that time Adobe has increased coverage to be more aligned with other tech peers (2015/2016 possibly).

    I left for reasons unrelated to gender equality, though I will say that were very few role models for women to have meaningful roles that were not full time. There were a few women you found out about through the grapevine who were rare species. Re: earlier responses to Question #3, I think it applies most in technical positions.

So long as you don't report into the Utah office, it's a good place to be. If you're in the Bay Area, it's a great place to be.

    Maybe. I would recommend the Digital Media Business Unit. The Digital Marketing Business Unit is based in a Mormon part of Utah so the culture is very different.

Pretty solid but as a younger woman there is a clear dearth of leadership roles to grow into as the average age of the company is older and people don't really leave.

It really depends on which team you're on and the ratio of men to women within that team.
