Adobe has made me an offer, but I can't find as much information about it as I can for companies like Google, Facebook, Amazon, and Microsoft.
What is good about working at Adobe? What is bad about it? What is its reputation like in the industry?
I was working with a team of really great people who had all been there for years (IIRC 4 or 5 of them had been there more than 10 years) when I joined. Those people could certainly have gone elsewhere if they had wanted to.
Depending on what you're interested in, there is a lot of interesting work available. Adobe has two big product areas (Creative Cloud and Marketing Cloud) and a few other things that I don't think are put into those two buckets. Broadly, Marketing Cloud work is mostly web-facing frontend and big data backend kinds of work. Creative Cloud encompasses the desktop apps like Photoshop and the cloud services that connect the desktop and mobile apps (among other things).
It's a really solid company, good work/rest of life balance, generally sharp business people and technical people to work with. They're also really good at putting on events and I was fortunate to go to 2 Tech Summits (internal tech conference) and 2 Adobe MAX conferences (conference for users of Creative Cloud) in my time there.
The only "bad" thing isn't really a "bad" thing but rather something that I have mixed feelings about. I've mostly worked for organizations under 1,000 people during my career (KA is about 100). Big company scale makes a lot possible (like Tech Summit and discounts with some national companies, etc), but it also introduces various bits of red tape and occasional systems that feel outdated (Adobe is more than 30 years old!). That red tape never got in the way of getting products shipped, though!
Adobe's reputation is going to vary a lot depending on who you ask and what they're interaction with Adobe is. A huge number of people know of Adobe because of Flash or Adobe Reader update prompts. Most usefully, though, Adobe's customers generally live in Adobe products and have created workflows that let them get things done in a way no competitor does.
As SteveMorin says, your own personal experience will depend on your manager/team which is true everywhere. My own experience at Adobe was great.
(BTW, Khan Academy is hiring too ;)
Do you know what you will be working on?
The couple people I know who left did so not because of any problems w/Adobe.
If you email me I'd be happy to connect you.
he said the engineers were treated like royalty and were highly respected within the company. this was close to 10 years ago though, no idea if/how things have changed but that's a data point.
High pay (to retain employees), low meaningfulness and low stress most likely means you'll be doing very boring stuff, judging by the quality of their latest products it wouldn't surprise me if this chart is accurate.
To OP, this is one of those times that you're better safe than sorry, make sure you make an informed decision as there are a few red flags.
