    Pros

    Sweet talkers, but no doers

    Cons

    Do not join the partnerships and business development group, inexperienced managers who know nothing about how partnerships are done

    Advice to Management

    Understand the difference between doers and sweet talkers

    Pros

    One good reason to join Intuit is the educational reimbursement.

    Cons

    Stay far away, find a company that you can grow with and does not reorganize every year. Intuit "superstar" execs are largely duds who give each other awards for courage and performance on the backs of their reports.

    Advice to Management

    Honestly, most of you'all are so self absorbed that you don't even recognize the idiocy of adoring Brads hair, much less how you should actually care about employees. These folks don't take advice, they write books and give seminars of advice, they know it all...

    Pros

    Company treats its employees really really well. It is really relaxed place to work at. Really good if you want to raise a family.
    Easy to move within company.
    Intuit pays exceptionally well.

    Cons

    Senior management is completely clueless.
    This is basically not a technology company, it is a marketing company.
    Your co-workers are third tier. They are only there because they can't find a job at a better company.
    Not smart. Lot of politics.
    Warning: Intuit will be a blot on your resume.

    Advice to Management

    Dont feel happy because stock is doing well. You have 8% growth. The stock has a rich rich PE. It will crash now or later.

    Pros

    No real pros compare to some of the good valley area company. Salary are at the par but other benefits really sucks.

    Cons

    Layoffs since 2009 every year under name of re-org. Company is loosing it's engineering talent while management is focused just on stock price. Older work force is reluctant to any changes means too much resistance to adopting to new technologies. Other than the cash cow turbotax company has no new product.

    Advice to Management

    Wake up and do some house cleaning. Changing the management every year won't help. Develop internal talents and make some room for internal folks.

    Pros

    Salary is good but other benefits are just imaginery

    Cons

    Many managers and directors are very racist and political
    You can not trust most of the managers there. They tell you lots of good things but eventually you'll be in a bad place
    Fight between various departments like CTG, CTO and GES leading to lots of re-orgs and difficult to work
    No help in career development, managers focus improving their career

    Advice to Management

    Please hire passionate and committed people for in management with some humane sense, most of them are not.

    Pros

    The job itself (Tax Advisor Specialist) was not bad. Helping customers is rewarding.

    Cons

    The management was terrible. It was impossible to get them to communicate with anyone. They refuse to respond to emails regarding scheduling/contract extensions and general assistance. They were downright rude to seasonal help on my team.

    Advice to Management

    Show some respect and appreciation to your seasonal employees, especially ones with credentials. This would encourage people to come back from year to year and improve your reputation in general. The way many of the TAS Alumni were treated was actually unacceptable.

    Pros

    None that I can think of

    Cons

    Too much politics
    You have to be obedient to progress and survive
    Highest management showed lot of appreciation towards work done by particular team one month. Guess what, team was then laid off following month as business direction had changed.
    No appreciation for talent but obedience is truly encouraged.
    Middle managers are clueless. This company can pull your career back rather than moving it ahead. Definitely not a good place to work!!

    Advice to Management

    Stop playing with careers of people

    Good Benefits, you can enjoy the "fancy" yearly company party (cost $$$).

    Cons

    Too much changes and politics. There were three big changes with one year, then a layoff. A team was working on a big production release on site until midnight, then 40% engineers were got the layoff notice before the lunch time.

    Pros

    Nice convenient facility in San Diego north county. I like the gym. The cafeteria food is pretty good. Mac or PC laptops given for use making it easy to take to meetings.

    Cons

    I'd have to agree with another poster -- a lot of obvious favoritism and politics! Don't complain to your manager though or you will be looked down upon. Just smile...act happy even if you are not! If you get on the wrong side of management there is no turning back.

    I too have heard engineers 'bragging' about working nights and weekends. I don't really see that as a completely dedicated worker -- often times that engineer is not organized and can't get work done in a 40 hour work week. Often an engineer who works this much has no family, no spouse, no interests and thus works the nights and weekends just to stay busy.

    Intuit wants you to be innovative with Innovation Days but the guidelines can be strict and narrow- not exactly what one hopes for when you hear "innovation".

    Intuit's number of product offerings hasn't changed much in years.

    The company is not as great as people think it is. There are many other great companies in San Diego to work for.

    Advice to Management

    Listen to the engineers and what they have to say. You will learn a lot! The managers only give you the answers that you want.

    Pros

    Decent benefits for this region.

    Cons

    Middle management is the biggest weakness. A majority of the Sales Managers have no real world sales experience. The 'ol' boy' network is big time at play at the Reno. NV site. Sales Management acts high school at best when it comes to evaluations and promotions.

    Advice to Management

    Recently Intuit released a portion of the staff and had them rebid for their jobs. Great concept, however you brought the wrong leaders back! The very same sales manager that are in the network and are only looking to self promote. Clean house one more time and weed out the self promoting dead weight that has been in place for the past 10 years.
