I worked at Intuit full-time for more than 5 years

Pros

Top talent attractor
Strong founder still participating
Dominant market share
Best in class product talent

Cons

Very top heavy... weak operational leadership at the Business Unit level
Inneffective at acquiring and integrating new businesses... too many duds with no accountability for bad acquisition strategy and execution
Heavy gross margins hide gross inneficiencies, particularly in HQ functions
Focus on the sizzle not the bacon

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Talent management and promotions serve the status quo. Culture is strong but elitist and tilted in favor of outdated reverence to talent sources that, when examined, have not produced "doers". Too many big-titled, non-contributing turf protectors are limiting innovation and creativity. Directors and VPs with few direct reports creates environment where leaders jockey for position vs. delivering for Employees, Customers, and Shareholders (remember that?). Simplify, root out the politicians (they are stil there), and unleash the actual potential that exists. Live up to your lineage.

    Pros

    Customer Focused. Innovative. Respect and Appreciation for work well done. People are very smart and nice to each other. Salary and Bonus is excellent. Stock based compensation was great over the last few years. Work like balance.

    Cons

    Career growth is limited. Business has head winds coming its way.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Remove the endless meetings and decision by committee mentality. Look at some teams who are more agile and lean and incorporate the new culture.

    I worked at Intuit as an intern for less than a year

    Pros

    Great work culture, awesome people, informal attire, FRIDAY SOCIALS, lots of technical events, freedom to express opinions and it will be considered, everybody is so friendly, I was so inspired by my manager, They care, really care about employees. They have amazing gym, yoga classes, so many more activities for everyone. And the best part is they let you use them! Awesome awesome place.

    Cons

    I was pampered so much that I put on so much weight! No cons. I swear. Or may be I didnt work there long enough.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice
