    Pros

    Great work/life balance Strong leadership/professional development Smart, nice down to earth people Many employees have been around for 5-10 years

    Cons

    Large company so there can be bureaucracy Slower pace than some other Tech companies Could be better at innovation but they are making strides

    Advice to Management

    Intuit needs to keep innovating in order to compete with new upstarts who are more nimble (e.g. Square). It should invest more in hiring young tech-savvy employees (recent undergrads and MBAs) who can help move the company forward.

    Pros

    1) Good compensation compared to other companies of its size 2) Nice facilities, decent cafeteria 3) Nice location 4) Relatively quick setup of laptop and network access 5) Can retreat into "touchdown" offices to focus on work and get away from the never-ending office politics there 6) Company occupies market niches that few other companies want to deal with, so it has little in the way of competition.

    Cons

    1) Middle management hopelessly inept and feckless - there is no adult supervision there. 2) Obsession with consensus-driven decision-making means that decisions are either never made, or they are made by the pushiest, most obnoxious people on your team. For some reason, this is generally thought of there as "collaboration." 3) If the decisions don't work out, the wrong people are usually blamed for it. 4) If the decisions don't work out, you are expected to be a "hero," and work day and night to make up for the bad decisions. Here's a hint: most of their decisions don't work out. 5) Company politics is hopelessly byzantine; it will take you months to figure it all out, especially with all of the warring cliques there. 6) Company flits from technological fad to technological fad, without any real innovation or technical vision. 7) If you are in the least bit nice as a person, you will be viewed as weak and eaten alive (figuratively speaking, of course).

    Advice to Management

    1) You might want to leave the comfort of your plush offices once in a while and figure out what's really going on in your company. 2) You might as well fire everyone who is in middle management. It's not like they do all that much for you anyway - all the decisions are being made by the individual contributors. 3) You might want to evaluate whether the decisions made really are doing your company any good.
