I was laid off after more than 15 years with Adobe. Loyalty is no longer rewarded I guess. And the pitiful severance package requires you to agree to the following (exact quote):

"I agree that I will not, at any time in the future, make any disparaging statements about the Company, its products or its employees, unless such statements are made truthfully in response to a subpoena or other legal process."

Scrooge is well and alive at Adobe.

hopefully the management also took a 50% or more cut in salaries and no bonuses, since this is their failure as well!

Adobe is incredibly weak in its approach to human resources. Layoffs happen yearly there and they are leaching away their talent and loyal workers to hire cheap new college grads, while outsourcing the core productivity jobs to countries outside the US and laying off the seasoned employees who understand the business and customers. They've been doing this since the year 2000 or earlier and show no sign of changing this self-destructive policy. The results of these annual layoffs are displayed clearly in the lower quality of their flagship products and the faltering morale in the workplace. Since the founders, John and Chuck retired, Adobe has lost its original identity and has become just another corporate behemoth.

Wish you all happy and fruitful trading and investing activities with safety! = = = Post a Comment
