Adobe Systems

Sales Development Representative

May - August 2020 • Lehi, UT

What I liked

I loved the people at Adobe. I’ve always heard that who you surround yourself with is who you become. Those with whom I rubbed shoulders at Adobe exemplify the type of human I want to be. The culture and atmosphere that is created by the people at Adobe is intoxicating. I loved the deep creativity, the constant learning, and the push for innovation. My internship was hands down the most pivotal moment in my career thus far. Thank you Adobe!

Adobe Sales Academy Intern

May - August 2020 • Lehi, UT

What I liked

-Adobe's culture! The internship was virtual so I deeply appreciated how special the internship was despite that it was virtual. -The interns were able to work with "higher ups." I was able to meet with the Vice President of my division

What I wish was different

Truly nothing. I loved working for Adobe and felt so valued.

Advice

Go in with an open mind and learn as much as possible. I never thought I would enjoy sales as much as I did.

Sales intern

May - August 2020 • San Francisco, CA

What I liked

I enjoyed the supportive employees at Adobe making the environment inclusive and innovative. I got the chance to shadow high-level sales reps and learned different sales techniques and strategy.

What I wish was different

I wish that we could have been in the office. However, due to the COVID-19 pandemic this was remote. This was still an enjoyable experience and learned a lot about sales.

Advice

I would advise others to network with other people in the company and book coffee chats with others and get to know them.

Software Engineering Intern

May 2018 - August 2019 • San Francisco, CA

What I liked

Adobe had a great atmosphere. There was a lot of support, both from my team and from the "University Talent" team, so I always felt like I could get help. My team was very kind and I had a great experience with them.

What I wish was different

I wish I had been challenged more/been on a different project.

Advice

Don't be afraid to drive your own challenge and ask for more!

Solutions Architect Intern

June - August 2019 • San Jose, CA

What I liked

Being an architect intern was a super unique experience--most companies only hire architects after they have spent a couple years as software engineers, and so coming on as an intern meant that I got to work with very experienced tech professionals each day. In addition, Adobe is just an awesome company with diverse and friendly employees. I loved working for them.

What I wish was different

I wish my personal experience could've maybe been a little more structured, but I think that mostly came from me being the first intern my manager had and the first one in my department.

Advice

Make connections and learn from everyone you can. People are rooting for you, and everyone has had a 'first day' or 'first week' at your company and can help you learn the ropes and smooth out that learning curve.

Network Reliability Engineer Intern

May 2019 • Lehi, UT

What I liked

I loved working with an experienced team of seasoned network engineers. I mostly worked on automating processes and helping the team with building infrastructure as code. I reached out to as many employees as I could on the team, as well as employees from other areas of the business. The other interns also made the experience a 10/10 summer.

What I wish was different

I wish I had started asking questions sooner. At the beginning of my internship I was afraid to ask questions when I didn't know something, I was worried I was bothering someone when I did. As I got to know my team I realized they were more than willing to help, I just had to reach out and ask. I also wish HR had been a bit more responsive. I am still waiting to hear back on if I will have a return offer and I had a few issues when I first started my internship with onboarding because of problems with my offer location and start date.

Advice

Don't be afraid to reach out to as many people as you can! As an intern everyone expects you to be learning and exploring what jobs are out there- take advantage of it! Most of the time people are super willing to give you career advice, tell you about their careers and talk with you about the jobs that are out there. I met more Alumni from my major at Adobe than I have anywhere else, including Alumni events. It was super inspirational to meet with them, and other management and employees, and I was able to see what options are out there. In addition, ask questions! If you have a good manager, they won't want you to feel overwhelmed or like you are failing. Be open with your manager about where you are at and what you need to be successful, then ask your co-workers for help when you don't know something or are confused.

May - August 2019 • Lehi, UT

What I liked

Incredible environment, very bright and intelligent coworkers, fun projects that contribute to the company.

What I wish was different

I wish it could have lasted longer, not because the internship was short, but because I was learning so much that I wanted it to be longer than 16 weeks.

Web UI Engineering Intern

May - August 2019 • Lehi, UT

What I liked

It was an absolutely fantastic experience. I got to work on my own project that contributed a lot to the product and learn from talented programmers on my team. Everyone was very nice and the atmosphere was productive and relaxed.

What I wish was different

It would have been nice to get a little more experience working along-side other senior developers because there was so much knowledge I could have gained from them, but that is just a small thing I would change.

Advice

I would say to make the most of it because it ends faster than you think it will.

What I liked

Adobe is an incredible company. It has the resources and diversity of a large company but with the personalization of a small company. They are doing incredible work and the benefits rocked.

What I wish was different

I wish they had been faster and more proactive in extending return offers. I have been waiting for several months to hear whether or not I will receive an offer to go back.

Advice

Take initiative to solve problems you come across on your own. Be eager to learn and experience new things. Go above and beyond the expectations your team has of you.
