Pros

Great people: smart, fun to work with.
Good benefits: facilities are good, salary and benefits are good
Starting to focus on innovation and seems committed.

Cons

Lack of a solid business plan to win. Haven't figured out how to make money in a world moving towards free.
Technical staff are solid, they just work on the wrong things.
Need to allow more risk to try new stuff.
IIT and ability to spin up new projects is a huge barrier.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Need to really fuel this innovation engine...fail fast model.
Outsource IIT....put the $$ in PD not IIT.
Understand the true value/benefit of standards and decide based on risk/reward. Not everything needs to be standardized.

    Pros

    Offers excellent pay and benefits.
    Very talented staff of front line employees who work together as a team.
    Strong customer focus.
    Innovation programs seem to be working in identifying new products / features / market opportunities.

    Cons

    Since a change in executive leadership 18 months ago, the company has been spiralling downhill. There is a continually changing leadership team: VPs and directors are promoted one day, then 3-12 months later, they are demoted or let go. This creates an extremely unstable environment for the front line employee, who are in jeopardy of being let go if they have been aligned with someone on the outs. This also leads to constantly changing goals at multiple levels in the organization, which negatively impacts productivity.

    Over the past year there have been a couple of significant reductions in force (terminations) and many really talented and dedicated employees have been let go, which has left the remaining team members with too few resources to accomplish the given work, and feeling concerned that they will be impacted next time.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Get better at selecting / promoting VPs and directors; the revolving management door is a productivity killer. Another productivity killer is the fact that impending layoffs are known 2-3 months before impacted individuals are notified, which results in endless speculation and gossip among staff.

    Pros

    Good compensation - total rewards.
    High margin company.
    Market leader.

    Cons

    Changes in senior execs have left Intuit drifting from it's top value - integrity without compromise.
    Intuit is becoming more political.......
    Human Resources has lost a lot of good talent.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Increase your ability to keep top performers and reduce making people decisions based on who has the closest friendships or internal political connections.
