Good strong company, not necessarily sexy

Pros

Work-Life Balance. Industry-leader in all three product lines (personal finance, small business finance, and tax). Very strong company that will survive the downturn. Many opportunities for mobility. Good location in the South Bay.

Cons

- Older workforce that is more in the baby/buying house stage in their life, not as many young people.
- I would prefer to live/work in San Francisco. Intuit has an office in SF, but only about 100 employees work there.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Start hiring and rewarding younger employees for their innovative thinking and work ethic. They will be able to help the company move more quickly to next-gen offerings

    Pros

    Work/life balance & benefits are great. Generally speaking, the people are nice and high-caliber in their performance. Intuit has a very strong culture, you either fit in or you're pushed out. Most folks

    Cons

    - Difficult to get promoted - very political and based on who you know.
    - Products aren't very "sexy" - financial software.
    - The company is trying to be innovative, but it's still not very clear to front line workers how the company will get there or what strategies are currently in place.
    - Intuit tends to re-org every 6 months or so. This can very difficult and disruptive, as you tend change managers, groups, and tasks. You find yourself almost working from scratch and proving yourself again.. The recent reorg in Jul '08 also had a 10% reduction in the work-force.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Reach out, mingle with, and listen more to front line workers.

    Job Instability

    Pros

    Very good compensation. Colleagues are really nice to you. Very good work-life balance

    Cons

    No job stability esp after the recent lay-offs in July.
    Messages from the Senior Management around cost cutting and pressure on asking you to focus on your job does not make it any easier.
    Pressure gets passed on directly from the senior management
    It is really sad to see that a company with great products failed to adapt to the changing technology and today we are laggards in the market.
    A lot of ex-employees have gone out and started companies in competition which are doing much better than Intuit! and yet no action is being taken

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Try to keep up the morale of your employees esp after you laid-of 10% of your workforce. Stronger communication between the different business units and divisions will be highly useful.
