Excellent benefits but poor middle management

Pros

Excellent medical, dental and eye benefits. Opportunity to learn new technology. Co-workers are friendly, intelligent and helpful. Offices allow quiet work environment and increased productivity. Excellent gym and clean, pleasant campus.

Cons

Middle management can form wrong opinions about employees, overreact, criticize instead of giving constructive feedback, and don't ask enough questions. It can be discouraging! You don't want to speak up about anything to management or they will hold it against you. Middle management wants everyone to be a cheerleader every day and every minute. If you don't appear excited then management thinks you are not committed. Some managers micro-manage and give you a day to day and hour to hour schedule. If you are lucky you will get a manager who is not so structured. Also too many layers of management. The widely praised work-life balance varies on the project you are working on and the goals set by your manager. Not a lot of staff engineers. It takes years to reach that level.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Employees should be able to review their managers at mid-year just as managers are able to review employees at mid-year. Email messages don't have to be so harsh and abrupt when employees are doing their best. Managers should not overreact and make rash decisions. Be fair about granting conference opportunities equally to all employees in the group.

    Pros

    Very good benefits. Good teamwork and camaraderie.

    Cons

    They try to make you feel they care, but you are still a number. You have to play the game.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Try to be fare. You might be letting go very professional people.

    Good training ground, but not a place to become truly excellent in your chosen career path.

    Pros

    Very nice people, and businesses with high barriers to entry. Because a few of Intuit's businesses literally print money (Turbotax & Quickbooks), the company has developed a laid back culture. There is time to explore and innovate in new ways, but it is often misguided.

    Cons

    Not many A players at the company. It is one of the older silicon valley darlings, and has become a place where people go for 'lifestyle'. If you want to lean back and cruise for a few years, then Intuit won't be a bad place. You will put in moderate hours, get paid moderately well and work on a range of moderately interesting problems and products.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Don't be afraid to disrupt your own products, or else someone else will.
