I speak often to the importance of loving where you live. As it so happens, I’m just as adamant that you love where you work. Your happiness depends on both, actually. Thus, in the interest of conquering some simple math, we have an equation that will answer both calls. Live in Utah + work at Adobe = hooray.
It seems like a foolproof fix, people. According to Forbes‘ ranking of “America’s Best Places to Live“, Utah was ranked number one. Not second, or a humble position in the top ten…first [we happen to agree with all our might]. Couple that with Adobe’s landing on the list of Fortune’s “100 Best Companies to Work For, 2012” [for the 13th consecutive year, no less], and simple math becomes your best ally. The Adobe Utah Technology Campus will soon be a massive, modern, thriving part of Utah [a few stats can be found below the photos], and we trust that Forbes and Fortune know what they’re talking about. We have personal proof; my brother-in-law, Jeff, has lived in Utah and worked for Adobe for years…happy. Our new clients, Eva and David, are relocating to Utah for the same, simple reason [Adobe]…also happy.
COLLECTIVELY speaking, we’re really happy about the building. See for yourself — it’s a beautiful and modern project, to be modest. We stopped on our return trip from the Buddhist retreat, and we were aptly impressed. You should be, too. It’s a big deal.
