Annual leave and paid holidays

Annual leave

Adobe provides time off so you can relax and recharge. Please make arrangements with your manager before taking time off.

How much you earn

As a full-time employee, you earn 20 days of annual leave each year. It’s accrued on a monthly basis. Adobe encourages you to use your full annual leave each year to rest and rejuvenate.

Schedule your annual leave in advance with your manager, then submit your request through Workday.
