Vacation & paid holidays

Adobe provides generous time off, and we encourage you to use it—whether it’s for vacation or personal reasons. You also receive paid holidays and company breaks.


As a regular full-time employee scheduled to work 37.5 hours per week, you earn up to 20 days of vacation time each calendar year. If you are a regular, part-time employee scheduled to work 20 or more hours per week, you will earn vacation time on a pro-rated basis. If you are a regular employee scheduled to work fewer than 20 hours per week, you will be provided with the minimum vacation entitlement based on the province where you are employed.

Arrange your time off with your manager and then request your vacation time via Workday. If you’re a non-exempt employee, enter the time away on your time card through Workday. You can take time off in either full-day (7.5 hours) or half-day (3.75 hours) increments.

Company break periods

Adobe takes two company-wide breaks each year, for a summer and winter holiday. The dates of these periods change each year. The number of vacation days you are required to use during the break periods is determined by Adobe each year. For 2020, they are June 29–July 3 and December 24–December 31.

If you're unable to take time off during these breaks for business reasons, work with your manager to arrange an alternate break period.

Paid holidays

Employees working at least 20 hours per week will be paid for designated holidays. Interns will be paid for holidays if the holiday falls on their normally scheduled workday.
