Pros

Good benefits
Good work life balance

Cons

Horrible support for immigrants, even if they have a Masters degree.
Green cards for immigrants are filed in EB3 which is a joke since it takes 12-15 years to get a Green card that way. Every other company in US files for GC using EB2, which is a faster process.
Lots of good engineers are leaving the company because of this

Somebody here said "Culture often rewards good talkers more than doers". Totally agree.
If you are good at talking, you will prosper, whether you can work or not.

Advice to Management

Change the Green card policy. Qualified engineers, who are immigrants do not want to join the company.

Focus on people who get the work done rather than who show fancy presentations.

    Pros

    > Lots of cash around to spend, if you are on the right team or project
    > Huge potential market to existing customers for new ideas with huge market shares in several financial management categories (Personal Finance, Taxes, Business Finance, etc.)
    > Pays very well (especially non-bay area locations)
    > Existing Customers Come First and this is NEVER forgotten... ever
    > First Rate Recruiting, the employees are very smart (although stale skills are acceptable)
    > Respectful handling of employees by HR
    > Opulent Campuses in the Major City locations

    Cons

    > A couple of high-volume, high-margin products fund a large amount of "messing around" with trying to grow (without much result). Makes things seem inefficient... with one set of organizations constantly being pushed to produce more with less and others that seem to spend everything those "cash cow" organizations make. Can be fun, if you are in the right organization... but has obvious pitfalls if you aren't.
    > Senior Management is very concerned about the employees, but are even more concerned about themselves. Can make you dizzy if you are into "management watching" as they are constantly trying to jockey for position in upwards management... and they are very disorganized with their direction changing constantly. Fortunately, senior management is really NOT required to find solid and rewarding work. With solid, long-term, customer-oriented middle management, there is always some outstanding opportunities in helping existing customers get more for their money.
    > Don't try to change things. Intuit pays so well and the markets are so solid, there is no incentive to put things at risk by making changes. Current skills are not required, only the willingness to participate with a team that focuses on a customer opportunity, bringing whatever capabilities you have to the table. Don't let any doom-and-gloom messages from the people mostly paid with stock (i.e. senior management) fool you. Growth is not that important, creating outstanding solutions for existing customer is all that's important.

    Advice to Management

    It is hard to give advice to these people as things are working out really, really well for them. But... in the class of "don't take any wooden nickels" advice (i.e. hugely obvious and maybe not so important) there is only:

    Don't let your ego get TOO out of hand. Intuit is a nice warm bubble of outstanding compensation and sycophantic underlings that obviously does not require you to have solid business skills to move up, only the ability to "manage upward" well. If you are not independently wealthy when (or if) you decide to find another job, people are going to find you lacking in solid delivery techniques. Don't let this trip you up.

    Having said that, it's doubtful that you will get tripped-up... as you will be so good at selling yourself, no one will notice the holes in your swing. I'm honestly jealous as I've spent my career on business skills and have no native talent for self-promotion. I really do wish I had spend more time learning what you seem to be able to do effortlessly and then found a place that pays like this. Nice work.
