    Adobe has great culture and good WLB. Also Adobe provides good benefits and great ESPP. Annual refresher is also good based on my experience. BTW, which team will you join in Adobe?

      Creative cloud, how much can you make from ESPP each year?

      15% of your base salary, up to 21500+ per year. The purchase price can be fixed for 2 years. For my case, I made more than 40k per year from ESPP.

    What do your comp numbers mean? Base/rsu/bonus?

    What team at ServiceNow? I think your experience could vary widely depending on which org within SN.

    Adobe's culture highly depends on team. Some teams have good leader and good WLB, some teams have back stabbing and creadit stealing culture. Overall lots of political fight. Think twice.

      The team I’ll be joining has lots of ppl that have 10+yrs with adobe, should I be worried?

      Yes, I will definitely not join a team like this at Adobe. If the other offer/package is similar, definitely take the other one.

      I would actually say higher retention is a good sign. It's true there's variance between teams but nothing is keeping people there if they aren't happy especially in the Bay area with many competitive offers.

      Good luck become one of their core. If you are really good at political fight, then please forget my suggestion. If not, then you will not be happy as a new hire. Again, think twice before you choose to come, you don't know what you will get into.

    ServiceNow is an amazing company that's growing year over year. Adobe has peaked in its value but ServiceNow is no where near slowing down.
