Hi! Was invited to an interview from an event on my campus. Super nervous as Adobe is my dream company to intern at, is there any general advice for the first interview or the process in general? Thanks! (This is for a Software Engineering Internship)

    Your interview will include some general questions geared toward our core values (genuine, exceptional, innovative, and involved). I'd recommend having experiences teed up to talk about that highlight those values.

    Then you'll have to talk your way through a technical problem or two. No live coding in our phone screen. If you make it to onsite then you'll probably have to whiteboard. Technical questions can vary widely based on interviewer and the type of internship (e.g. Front end, back end, data science, etc)

      OP
      Thank you so much! I'll definitely do my homework and prepare. What's it like working at Adobe? The recruiter made it sound like paradise, but I feel that's their job haha.

      In my opinion it's great! Going on 3 years in engineering here I'm very happy. Products are industry leaders and there are cool strategic visions for innovation, the benefits are really good, and in my experience there's a lot of integrity to the core values.

      Obviously there are things to be improved at any workplace. Pay isn't quite as high as big 4. There's a deep management structure. There isn't as much collaboration across business units as there should be (but we're working on that). There is quite a bit of legacy code in different products, but rewrites are becoming more common.

      Adobe has been great to me and I would heartily recommend Adobe to anyone.
