Adobe has shut its US offices this week to save money on operations. But the moveis not that unusual, according to an Adobe blogger.
The company planned the week-long shutdown in April as a way of reducing operational expenses - expenses such as power consumption.
When Computer Weekly contacted Adobe for comment, we were directed to a blog post by Adobe employee John Nack which goes some way towards explaining the reasoning.
He said this is not actually a unique incident, but has happened in the past.
"Let me first mention that these Adobe shutdowns are nothing new. I've worked here for nineyearsand the company has done the shutdowns off and on throughout that time - at least since 2001 or 2002," said the blog.
Nack said that in the summer with people going on holiday at different times, business is disrupted. "It's harder to make progress when lots of your colleagues are out of the office. If that's going to be the case, why not just schedule a break andsave a bunch of money on facilities, security, and so forth."
