Adobe July Shutdown

Adobe is making me wait for an offer since last 3 weeks, they called me right after the interview to discuss expectations/numbers and feedback was excellent. This last Tuesday, they given me exact offer numbers as well after 3 weeks, which I verbally accepted and told me it would take around 48 hrs to generate an offer. Now all of a sudden they told me yesterday that company is going on 2 weeks financial shutdown until July 15th, then they will restart all the activities,

Is this correct @adobe folks regarding shutdown? Does an offer takes this much time to come along?

TC will be 240k in Austin,

    Yes, the shutdown is true - although most people are back July 8th, so not sure why they'd need another week on top of that.

      Is there some quarterly planning goes on during June July ?

    • Adobe omuyg76
      Adobe's financial quarters don't align with the yearly calendar, so we're actually part of the way into Q3 already. Quarterly planning does happen, yes, but the shutdown is just an employee perk that happens for 1 week over the July 4th holiday and again at Christmas.

      It’s a “perk” in the sense it’s a way the company forces PTO to remove the liability from their books. The nice thing about the shutdown, is that no one should be bugging you while on vacation, unless they are outside of the NA offices!

      Adobe already has "unlimited PTO", so there's no liability to pay out, with or without the shutdown. But yeah, having everyone off at the same time is nice, keeps email very quiet.

      True - the US offices moved to an “unlimited PTO” model. The shutdowns were initially used as a way to burn PTO off their books (reducing the amount of liability the company takes on) when it was an accrual based PTO. With “unlimited” the liability is next to ‘nil and the company does not have to pay out unused vacation (whether the year is done or the employee quits)! But the non-US offices have a the accrual/payout policy.

    What's the rush? You already know the numbers and have the verbal offer. You will get it for sure. Enjoy till then!

      Not on rush, I told them I am fine, but I haven't seen this much time for job offer to come before in my career. Naturally until you have nothing on-hand, you are still doubtful 🙂 since everything is verbal till now

      Don't worry. Adobe is a great place to work and full of ethical people. You will get your offer. Just enjoy and do things that you want to do before switching your job

      Thank you for reassurance, I actually stopped interviewing after I got positive feedback, because it's too much stress for preparing for yet another interview

      Nice, seems like a solid offer. Equivalent of around $400k in San Francisco, adjusting for CoL. Good luck with the position!

      Sorry, forgot to mention but yes, July 4th week is always company shutdown. Standard practice.

    I got hired under very similar circumstances. It was hard to be patient, but it's a good idea to be.

    Kind of sounds like someone might be on vacation the week after shutdown.

    Do Adobe take this much time overall for putting an offer across ?

    • Adobe mmmmmmm..
      I think I waited like 3 months to get my first rejection then 1-2 months to get my offer.

    Summer shutdown is a huge and rare perk. When you join Adobe, you will celebrate it! :)
