    Pros

    The benefits are great and the company seems to care about its employees for the most part. Due to the size of the company, there appears to be opportunities for growth and possibilities to work on a variety of projects while learning different skills. The unstructured time provides additional opportunities to learn new skills and work on interesting projects. The company is very good in terms of caring for the environment as well as giving back to the community through various charitable causes. It is also nice to work for a company whose products are well known by a large number of people.

    Cons

    Most of the time, there is more talk than action at this company. Many people are rewarded or promoted because they present themselves well, even if they produce nothing and add no real value to the company. Management is too scared to make important decisions in case those decisions backfire and they are held accountable. Certain parts of the company are organized poorly and the result is a lot of power struggles and even more office politics. No one is willing to make a decision that might put them out of favor with any of the people that have gained some form of power.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Make decisions and provide direction to teams. Do not remove technical people from having any power to influence product direction. Recognize people that do good work and do not reward people that market themselves well yet make no significant advancements for the company.

    Intuit is your father's Oldsmobile with spinning rims and you're racing for pinks - fun maybe, but it doesn't bode well.

    Pros

    Intuit has a diverse range of offerings used by hundreds of thousands of consumers, so there's lots of opportunity to make a real impact. "Dull" software like tax preparation or small business accounting may not be sexy, but it really does improve people's lives and that feels good.

    Intuit has great benefits and satisfactory compensation.

    Most of the folks I meet are smart, nice people.

    If you're just out of school Intuit offers a 2-year Rotational Development Program that includes 6-month tours through most business functions. It's really an awesome opportunity to see what corporate America is like and polish that resume (or make the decision that this really isn't for you).

    Cons

    The usual issues with any large corporation - too many meetings, slow moving bureaucracy, difficulty sharing information, too much politics around promotions, etc.

    Leadership seems to focus on buzzwords rather than clear strategy - "innovation" and "secret sauce" do not a growth story make. The only real strategy seems to be acquiring cash cows every decade or so (QuickBooks, IMS, ...?).

    Layoffs and outsourcing are the word of the day, so get used to 8am and 8pm meetings and hope you avoid the cut.

    Also, there's a lovefest between Gen Y's and Boomers that can rankle some Gen-X's. Idea Jams where 90% of the entries are social media sharing are applauded as brilliant thinking and held up as examples for the old dogs. I'm all for shaking things up and frankly I think young blood is a good way to do it, but stop handing out the "you're awesome" trophies like it's a kid's soccer team.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Stop trying to be Google/Apple and focus on delivering real value for our customers.
