This marks the tenth year Adobe has been included on the list.

In total, 353 U.S. companies vied for a place on the “100 Best Companies to Work For” list.

FORTUNE polled a minimum of 400 randomly selected employees at each company. The remaining third is based on a company’s responses to the Culture Audit questionnaire, which included questions about demographics, pay and benefit programs, and open-ended questions on philosophy, communication and more.
