Mission: Adobe is changing the world through digital experiences.
I have been working at Adobe full-time
Autonomy, forward thinking company, exciting, flexibility
Quarterly pressures, lacks a bit of team culture
An uncomfortable and unprofessional interview.
4 Stage Process with long lead times between each stage.
First initial meeting - one interviewer did not show up, asked if they were attending and one interviewer says "they aren't coming" with no courtesy apologies.
Both interviewers were on phone during the presentation - even if a presentation is terrible there is a standard to stay off the phone or be quick if necessary.
Asked questions out of the scope of the marketing department and were rude (acting if I was dim) when I asked them to give more detail/clarity about their question.
Upon finishing, one interviewer had left the room without saying bye or shaking hand. The other was waiting at door, we shook hands and both left without me.
Very strange, and unprofessional in my opinion. Clearly, they were tired of going through interviews/had already found their candidate and had to go through the rest of interviews booked.
Key takeaway for me - Asked how the culture was.
Answer: "We all sit near each other, but we stay in our own lanes".
Clearly didn't want me to be interested in the Sydney location, and they succeeded.
Still respect the company, however not the team I would be working within.
