Pros

Work Life Balance, Stable Company.

Cons

Politics. Clueless pointy-haired managers and architects who hide their incompetence behind "process" and politics.

There are good technical folks in the engineering ranks who do a great job but as a product manager it is very difficult to get things done because the numskulls in architecture and middle-management can neither lead, support or get-out-of-the-way.

A side-effect of clueless leadership is that they have no idea how to evaluate risk and take on challenges. As a result, there is a CYA mindset, and politics is winning over competence.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

You think Merlin is dead? The cancer is back and it is called Atlas. You have great engineering talent but the managers are completely clueless, and the architects are taking you down the hole again. Their roadmap is a joke - I have spoken to other people in the program and they admit in private that it is not going well - but the current leadership is more interested in keeping the program alive than in doing the right thing to fix it.

    Pros

    The people you work with. Friendly atomosphere. No problems with bigots. Very diverse

    Cons

    There's a big push to outsource jobs on all levels - except the Board and CEO of course
    Lots of layoff of the most experience people. It's one thing to let slackers go but many of the former employees were some of our best. Upper management seems to be chopping off the employees with the most experience and the highest pay. Huge surprise, huh.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Move fast, think fast sounds great as a slogan but many times Speed Kills.

    Pros

    Intuit makes software that solves real problems in a way that is so simple, you can't imagine going back. The say/do ratio is better here than any other company I've worked for, and there is a sense of pride in our products, our diversity, and our future.

    Cons

    Joining Intuit means you're joining a family, a family you're connected to, sometimes even on weekends. Work/life balance is supported here, but you have to be assertive about your limits. There will always be more that needs to be done!

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    We are working at making decisions faster, so we're making progress, but need to continue to push decisions out into the field where the work is being done.
