    Pros

    There is a comprehensive program designed to teach people to sell, not just Demandforce, but anything.

    Cons

    No one can teach you how to hustle. If you are not used to a fast paced sales environment, you will struggle.

    Pros

    You get to work in a face paced environment and quickly have to learn how to communicate successfully with different types of personalities, ranging from business development, sales, and engineering resources. If you're able to adapt, the experience is something you can't get somewhere else. The product, when working properly, is unbeatable.

    Cons

    The egos in the office can be overwhelming. Also, the product breaks more often than it should, causing many support calls and unnecessary stress.

    Pros

    Intuit benefits
    Great first sales job and training
    College like culture
    Perks
    Most people are friendly and helpful

    Cons

    Managers are passive aggressive
    Hard to move up
    Dead end job for a experienced sales person
    This isn't intuit its demandforce
    Expensive product and you really need to believe it helps business owners
    60 day cancel and bye bye commission
    You miss one month with numbers you're on a plan then fired.
    They fire people during sales training even if they hit there numbers.
    They hire 20 people every two weeks and fire anyone who they feel isn't a fit.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Why didn't intuit let demandforce opperate independently. Work like oracle and change policies to fit a real business.

    Pros

    Great place to start a sales career, Fraternity like enviroment helps you meet a ton of people. The training is very good if you are new to sales. Lots of food and snacks. Transactional enviroment allows you to fail fast enough to get up to speed.

    Cons

    Where do I start? The company has vison anymore. Upper managment has taken their money from the aquisition and just left. The replacements have no idea of company culture, practices, values, market, or customer needs.

    Let me repeat that:The replacements have NO idea of company culture, practices, values, market, or customer needs.

    So, when the exec team is playing, "Weekend at Bernies" middle managemnt flounders around looking for some way to do their jobs, withoout training or information. What ends up happening is a Mad Max version of keeping your job: Backstabbing, brown-nosing, gossip, and other forms of college fraternity BS make up most of the employees day. Working hard, or eing good at your job, makes you a target because it makes others look bad.

    Toxic, Toxic business enviroment. But if you want a sales job and not really do sales, this is a good place for you. Because no one in charge you won't get fired for lack of production, only for getting caught in drama. If you are looking for a bunch of drama, a salary, a cool office, or maybe a place to get preganant, (They have a great maternity benfit) this is your place.

    Great place to network and grow your career, especially for early career employees. Intuit has great benefits and invests in their employees. Fun company culture and a hard working workforce.

    Cons

    Sales driven company that sometimes loses sight of the "big picture" in favor if hitting the number.

    Pros

    - Intuit overall is a great place to work for. Some of the best benefits out there.
    - Great perks: they feed you ALL the time. Fully-stocked snack wall, coffee/tea, soda, etc.
    - Work hard, play hard mentality
    - Knows how to throw parties
    - Quarterly all-hands company party
    - Bonuses
    - Location is awesome

    Cons

    Intuit's Demandforce division is a totally different lifestyle than Intuit. Quick turn over positions: many people don't stay long, especially in the sales department. HUGE disconnect within different departments and HUGE lack of communication with upper/mid-management all the way down to the minions. Support is seen as a joke: the company praises every team (sales, engineering, etc.) EXCEPT for the support team. They are constantly looked down upon and are brutally underpaid. Don't even ask for a raise, you'll just get on management's bad side. Absolutely no room for advancement (unless you're good at brown nosing), people throw co-workers under the bus to make them look good (and get promoted), mid-management is young and inexperienced. The product itself is so buggy that no employee would recommend someone they know to it. It's no wonder why the moral of support is so low, you dread to come into work every day. There's a reason why so many people, especially people that have been there for years, are leaving. It's a vicious cycle: understaffed support and buggy product results in angry calls from customers, which causes management to hound on employees to make numbers and resolve issues, which causes employees to leave company.

    Culture is young and still has the "start-up" feel. Very "clicky" and it feels like you are in a fraternity a lot of the times.

    The Demandforce motto is: "One team, one goal." It actually should be: "Different teams, individuals with different goals."

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Management should take the time and recognize those who are hard workers and have potential to grow. Upper management are not very open and have no transparency. Employees should not have to fear or avoid upper management.

    Pros

    Decent training along with the ability and freedom to work at your own pace as long as you're 'hitting your number.' Benefits are top notch. Lots of free meals and company/team outings.

    Cons

    It's like college up in there. Sororities and frats included. Managers definitely give the hot girls extra attention.
