PIP at Adobe

Dec 15, 2019 19 Comments

I got my first PIP, ever. I had been performing poorly for 5 months, but without much notice from management. I'm expecting to be let go no matter what improvement I make. Can someone help me understand what my options are at this time with PIPs at Adobe. What are the timelines? Do folks survive a PIP here? I haven't signed anything but I did agree to make improvements. Any help would be amazing!

  • File a discrimination case with EEOC to buy some time at Adobe and start job hunting asap. They won't fire you during the discrimination case (which takes average of 11-12 months to investigate) since it will be considered retaliation

      Life happens and everyone has had an off quarter. If this isn’t a pattern with you then there is probably something else going on at the company. I would let HR know you are consulting outside counsel for possible discrimination (don’t say attorney and try to be vague)and try to get a package above and beyond what they offer you.

      Under the DME org in the US, Adobe has a thing called a Performance Plan (similar to PIP)

    Just move to another company and save yourself from the carrot and stick game called PIP

      Agreed. I think that's the only viable way out of here.

    DX here. I've seen many from my colleagues and they're all gone. Perhaps time to look for an external opportunity.

      Are they from sales or engineering orgs? I heard that sales people get fired every year.
