Current Employee - Senior Marketing Manager in Plano, TX
Current Employee - Senior Marketing Manager in Plano, TX

I have been working at Intuit full-time (less than an year)

Pros

- Great company, with strong financials and good industry to have experience in.
- People are very nice and usually willing to go above and beyond to help you out.
- Can maintain some semblance of work/life balance...still weighted toward work.
- Good comp and benefits plan
- Brad Smith is great...almost impossible not to like. He should be a politician.

Cons

- Not the most inspiring marketing work you'll ever do... accounting professionals are kind of lame.
- The quality of your experience varies greatly by division or even group manager
- Unclear as to how to advance your career...It's evident there are people who have been "tapped for greatness" and then there's the rest of the unwashed masses
- A lot of emphasis on the "how" you get things done. The "what" has to be excellent from the start.
- Can't say no to management - even if they are engaging in magical thinking

Advice to ManagementAdvice

- Be proactive instead of reactive to competition. We know where the customer is headed so let's get out in front and not wait for competition to move our cheese.
- There is a disconnect between the strategic priorities, the revenue priorities and the resource allocation.

    Current Employee - Manager in Mountain View, CA

    I have been working at Intuit full-time (more than 5 years)

    Pros

    Very customer focused culture, and customers are small biz, not big enterprise. Results in a very
    Down to earth approach to problem solving.
    Extremely respectful work culture, sensitive to all the usual usual categories.
    Good maternity and paternity programs, disability friendly campus,
    Flexible hours, ultra casual environment, great new fitness center.
    Top of heap pay, very competitive benefits.
    Founder (Scott Cook) is still the heartbeat and conscience of the company, decades later.

    Cons

    Not a "technology" company,.rather it is a,"solutions" company.
    Be ready to shovel some legacy along with the latest buzzwords.

    Not too good for career growth if you are a remote employee.
    But then which company is?

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Stay real, stay focused, stick with the strategy of keeping expenses low
    And focusing on customers.
