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 ManagementAdvice

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

    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.

    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
