Pros

Lots of opportunity to do different things within your current position.

Cons

Limited or non-existent internal promotions. Too frequently management prefers to go outside the company to hire for higher level positions. Higher level new hires don't understand the business, culture, or drive many employees have. The result is a management team that quotes bullet points from our training slides and attempts to use "fear" to meet goals or simply move on or restructure before goals need to be reported.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Internal promotions are more important to Intuit than outside hires.

    Pros

    Intuit is a great company. Leadership is very transparent, open, and helpful. The company values its employees as much as shareholders. The pay and benefits are great.

    Cons

    Just make sure you negotiate the highest position/title/salary before you come on board. It is extremely difficult to get promoted to the next level, even after several years of being a "top performer". There is always the ability and option to move laterally, but if you want to go from "Manager" to "Senior Manger" or Senior Manager to Group manager, be prepared to wait, a while. As good a a company Intuit is at many things, there is no defined schedule to get to the next level, like at many other companies. This is often concerning as you can feel like your career has plateaued.

    The unfair process, in my opinion, is that they really only promote once per year. They look at your performance and how others compare to you, kind of a 'curve', which is fine. BUT, they also look at your Business Unit performance for a very small snapshot in time (maybe just how it is doing that particular week) and use that to decide if people are getting promoted.

    I completely understand that "if the business is down, why should we promote you?" mentality, but if you are a top performer year after year, but your BU is short at the particular time of reviews, you are essentially STUCK without the possibility of promotion, even if (as is usually the case) your business unit meets its annual goal. Not fair IMO.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Promote people the moment you think they are ready, not 1-2 per year at a defined time. If not, people become unhappy and think they've maxed out, and will move to another BU or worse, another company.
