About Adobe Systems Europe Ltd


What is it like to work for Adobe Systems Europe Ltd

My Manager

Adobe senior management team work to a "Get it done, do it right" philosophy which incorporates all of their values. The ethos behind this is that it is not just what you do that is important but equally how you do it. This encompasses how they work with each other, their partners, their customers and how they shape their own success. The little things matter just as much as the big things, the long term is just as important as the shorter term. The goal is to reinforce the right culture where employees go about their day to day roles in a genuine, exceptional, innovative and involved way.

Adobe has a unique 'KickBox Innovation Workshop' programme that gives employees free reign to bring an idea to life. KickBox is a new approach for empowering employees to innovate inside an enterprise. KickBox is a way of innovating. The KickBox Workshop teaches it in fast-paced, hands-on fashion. Employees are given a red box. Inside is everything they need to become an Adobe Innovator including $1,000 on a pre-paid credit card with a step-by-step process to originate an innovative new concept and then use that money to validate the concept. No proposal, no committees, no approval. You just do it. KickBox is not limited to one idea. Employees learn techniques and gain skills that will be useful throughout their career.

Adobe's reward philosophy is to provide market-competitive rewards allowing them to attract and retain great talent and to differentiate based on exceptional company and individual performance. They provide competitive compensation and benefits programmes as appropriate in each country in which they do business. A critical part of the integrated benefits offering, is their relationship with their UK health insurance provider, PruHealth. In addition to providing market leading medical insurance in the unfortunate event that their employees fall ill, a key part of PruHealth’s partnership with Adobe is their focus on how they can make it cheaper and easier for their members to lead a healthy lifestyle, and earn some great rewards by doing so. Their integrated wellness programme, Vitality, provides members with significant discounts with leading gyms, health screening centres, bike retailers and entertainment groups, as well as paying non-smokers cash back directly into their bank accounts. Adobe and PruHealth recognise that many employees never use their Private Medical Insurance, meaning it can often be seen as a cost to you as an employee, rather than a benefit. PruHealth’s approach to integrated wellness ensures first class medical insurance provision to those who need to claim, but also provide tangible benefits to those who don’t, meaning that everyone can now take advantage of their cover.
