Great work-life balance but moves too slowly, too much politics

Senior Software Engineer (Current Employee)
Mountain View, CA

Pros1. Great work-life balance. If you have kids or a family to care for, some departments at Intuit allow you to work from home a couple times a week (it really depends on your department, though).
2. Benefits are OK. Vision plan is awesome, 401k matching is really competitive, but the other plans are pretty standard compared to other companies.
3. Company tries really hard to minimize politics, but of course politics always creep up regardless.
4. Management is respectful of employees' time off requests, especially to care for family members (mostly kids).

Cons1. Certain managers or executives are very political and are emotionally immature, holding grudges or dealing with employees extremely unfairly as a result.
2. Promotions are scarce and very difficult unless you play the right game with the right people. My advice is to just be happy where you are and don't expect to get promoted even if you do insanely awesome work. This is horrible employee morale - no wonder no one ever wants to work hard here.
3. Most engineers do the minimum work and then go home to care for their kids. Some managers do very little to promote good coding practices and turn a blind eye, even promoting those who do little but know how to talk the talk. However, there are some technical managers who do care but those are hard to find.
4. Downside of promoting work-life balance is projects tend to move very slowly - sometimes wayyyyyy too slow. Many missed opportunities with marketing, sales, etc.

Advice to Senior Management1. Find ways to move faster on real business ideas, not "idea jam" ideas. You're having too many "Idea Jam"s - what are you getting out of them? These jams are oversaturated and no longer interesting or productive.
2. Look at who you're putting in senior management or executive positions. In particular, ask the lower-level employees how these people did before they got promoted to senior management. They may look good to you because of how they present themselves, but some of them are extremely ineffective as leaders in their own departments before getting promoted to executive positions, and are not respected at all by the lower-level employees. This lowers our confidence in how the company is being run.
