    Depending on what you want to optimize for. If compensation or career growth, avoid Yelp. If life work balance, join Yelp.

      For the record that kind of work life balance is what made me leaving now

      My brother works at Adobe. Can confirm it is very chill there and his WLB is 100x better than mine.

      Gôgle: [Office is empty by 5] is what made you leaving(sic) now?

      I have so many questions for you...
      1) Why is office empty by 5 making you leave? Too much life?
      2) In what Yelp office is the office empty by 5?

      I should have clarified that. I did not say empty by 5 is Yelp’s WLB style. That’s Adobe (at least what sushiLife mentioned). I’m tired of the kind of WLB that turned into laziness in Yelp. The company is not willing to move fast and make new innovations. Just personal opinion.

      Stocks up by 70% alone last year. Really aggressive growth and leaders in a lot of difff areas so opportunity to work on some innovative ideas.

      I have heard that the Adobe Sign team is not good to work for, though. So if they place you there, maybe look elsewhere

    eBay.. Cos we are rising. Again. There is a lot of new technology initiatives including machine learning.

    Adobe!

    Here’s my completely biased opinion backed up with numbers:

    We've had Huge recent gains. Someone already mentioned that our stock has gone up steadily for the last few years, but let’s put that in terms of revenue:

    FY15: $4.8B
    FY16: $5.9B
    FY17: $7.3B

    We are a 35 year old startup. Our TAM (total addressable market) went up from 64 –> 84B last year. We lead in many of the areas where we compete and still our total revenue is <10% of our TAM.

    I’ve been around at Adobe for awhile so please let me know if you have any specific questions.

      Good info! Adobe is my first choice of where I’m trying to move to. Have been internally referred but from other posts here on Blind, sounds near impossible to get a recruiter response. I’m keeping my fingers crossed to hear back. ;)

    I’m biased but Adobe is amazing. Huge focus on building a creative toolset for AR, MR, and VR, which I assume coming from Snapchat would align a bit with your background.

    WLB is just that, a balance. Work hard, play hard, relax a lot, but never lazy.

    Purely from a recruiting perspective- IMO adobe looks best on a resume

    Okta. It's a younger, growing company. More opportunity for career and income growth.

    Okta. Engineer/Product CEO, who is not only a great leader, but an even better person. Todd McKinnon is one of the very good people in this industry.

    Okta is risky. Both amazon and Microsoft are penetrating their market
