Intuit has potential, but while the very top CEO and founder levels are great , one or two levels down it loses a lot.

Pros

They're still motivated at the top to be better Provide a great work environment and facilities Many of people are dedicated and have pride in the product Still motivated to compete and innovate at the top levels

Cons

Getting too much bureaucracy and slow moving Promotions don't ago to real successes or accomplishments as often as they should Too much attempt at harmony over accomplishing great stuff

Advice to Management

Place more entrepreneurs in top places and give them authority and responsibility Develop more entrepreneurial engineering capability Put emphasis on real accomplishments in reviews and promotions Have the GM's and other executive management go more vertical to learn what the grass root level is thinking and how best to organize for sucess

    Pros

    Decisions are weighed with respect to how they will impact Customers, Shareholders, and Employees. Top 100 places to work rating is achieved through management focus on employees as a strategic competitive advantage. Financial software domain knowledge is deep and pervasive.

    Cons

    Organizations work in silos with issues communicating and coordinating across silos. Senior leaders seem to be rewarded for delivering within their domain, but there doesn't seem to be recognition for collaborative efforts. Desktop-centric engineering and release approaches can be frustrating for web world.

    Advice to Management

    Establish web properties in each major area and bring in web-savvy leaders to carry out a coordinated strategy to obsolete desktop products. Transform production capability and personnel resources for the web world.

    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 Management

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