I worked at Intuit full-time for more than a year

Pros

On paper, Intuit offers everything a great company should. Solid compensation and benefits, a nice variety of work options. It encourages employees in community involvement, offers employees time to pursue other interests. If you can find a great manager within Intuit, you'd find a great place to work.

Cons

On paper, they're great, in reality the Intuit environment seems a bit soulless. Rather like having parents who prefer to shower their children with gifts,in lieu of devoting quality time in parenting. Intuit is extremely outcome driven without putting in place the plans to achieve those outcomes. Subsequently, there are many blame games played when those outcomes fall short.

Intuit has lost it's knowledge of how to grow their own quality products. They routinely acquire smaller companies that make great products, like Mint, absorb the technology, then dump the newly acquired folks that don't "fit" into the Borg collective.

    I worked at Intuit full-time for more than 10 years

    Pros

    Benefits, pay, and culture can be great and inclusive. There is nothing more satisfying than being able to take a morning off and volunteer and get paid for it. The education benefits are generous. Generally, the culture supports internally motivated individuals. Engineers get 20% of their time to work on anything they want.

    Cons

    There is not a lot of internal training - different divisions have different cultures. You may know someone who has a great manager and job, but the job you have is a living hell. Watch out for internal politics - there are individuals who are outcome driven and will throw anyone under the bus who gets in the way of making their bonus.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Your middle managers represent the company more than you do - you need to make sure you are promoting the right kind of behavior and attitudes, not just the right kind of outcomes. Kill annual performance reviews and the IPI bonuses. The company was much better to work for and much more innovative when you had profit sharing.

    Pros

    Great Pay & Benefits, variety of work assignments

    Cons

    Horrible front line managers, managers in IT are all about building their own little empire. Intuit's value statement is just words, it's not about the people it's about the bottom line, the people are secondary despite what their value statement preaches. Can't trust your manager to keep their promises, I had 2 in my almost 9 years who both failed at this, horribly so. The latter has absolutely no values whatsoever.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Hire experienced front line managers who aren't out to build thier own empire and screw over their employees in the process. Many great people have been lay off from Intuit because of this mindset.
