Adobe offices aim to make employees’ lives easier and a whole lot more fun.

When you accept a job at Adobe—regardless of whether it’s in San Francisco or Maidenhead or Noida—you know one thing for sure: You’ll be working in a very cool space. And in many offices, the spaces are getting even better. For Adobe, the experience employees have with their office buildings is key, and the company is always looking for ways to improve it. Sometimes that means adding “active” conference rooms that feature exercise-as-you-work workout equipment, and sometimes it means full renovations.

In India, construction is already complete on a brand-new 2,300-employee campus in Noida and a new 1,500-person campus in Bangalore. The Bangalore campus, which opened in May, features a new café, wellness center, game room, cricket pitch, outdoor basketball court, jogging track, and rooftop terrace with open amphitheater.


Headquarters in San Jose is undergoing a major transformation, getting three new restaurants that feature world-class, locally grown, farm-to-fork fare. There will be a test kitchen for cooking classes opening in the summer of 2016. The wellness floor, opening January 2016, will feature massage treatments, meditation space, a sensory room for decompression, and three group exercise rooms for classes. The lobbies, to be completed in the summer of 2016, are being completely renovated with new, interactive elements that showcase Adobe technology and employee talent in a place where everyone can enjoy and appreciate them. More changes include an auditorium for large-group meetings, a Tech Café, a workplace support center, and the Adobe Store, all set for completion by the summer of 2016.

“We want to support employees with great spaces, and that means more than just workspace,” says Eric K., senior manager of the global workplace experience at Adobe. “We’re creating experiences that are meaningful, empowering, and personal, and it’s exciting to hear how much pride employees have in these spaces.”
