While we were fortunate enough to virtually visit Adobe, Apple and Google during our 2022 Silicon Valley Virtual Industry Trek, what is it really like to walk Google’s Mountain View campus or play ping pong in Adobe’s atrium? Because we couldn’t travel to the West Coast in person this year, we’ve compiled some fun videos that give you an inside look at these famous tech companies. Who knows what the future will look like in terms of remote work, but one thing is for sure: these are three impressive campuses for employees to return to when and if the time is right.
Adobe’s world headquarters is in San Jose, right in the heart of Silicon Valley. There is a lot to admire about this bright and airy complex consisting of three connected towers. But more than the state of the art gym and creative design elements, it’s the company culture that really makes Adobe special. “People are genuinely happy to be at Adobe and always make time to connect, collaborate, and help with other projects,” says Product Manager David Eydus ’17, MA’18.

Apple has built a thoughtful, sleek and energy-efficient headquarters on 175 acres of land in Cupertino.

But no matter how impressive Apple Park may be, our alumni cite the intelligent people and impactful work as the real draw to a career at Apple. “I’ve had a tremendous amount of movement, opportunity, and exposure to experiences that have transformed both my professional and personal life,” says one alumna. Enjoy this video tour of Apple Park!
What can we say about Google’s Mountain View campus? It’s massive, playful and full of great perks (talk about free food!). Creativity abounds in both the campus design and the work of the employees. Enjoy this video tour of Google’s Mountain View headquarters!
