Good experience but higher ups are plagued with antiquated corporate decisions making skills

I have been working at Intuit as an intern (less than a year)

Pros

I learned a good amount and got to see into processes that have taught me a lot. I like the dynamic of work where they don't mind when you come in and leave or if you need to work from home. Great mix of an older crowd and they hire really great and excited people to do work.

Cons

I was an intern and made a mistake and they decided to deal with it in a manner that taught me absolutely nothing and took away privileges that no one agreed with. Coworkers, recruiters, and others disagreed with the decisions made by one high level manager. I felt that my learning experiences were of my own accord by putting forth effort and insisting that I be taught something or given work to do that was meaningful instead of busy work from a busy manager. Furthermore, the work-life balance doesn't exist. They insist on not working over time but don't even realize their employees are working well into the night and very early mornings. I can't clock overtime even if I am here longer than 8 hours/day.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Treat your interns with respect and don't just take away privileges because you don't know how else to go about the situation. Ask your team for advice and approach the issue with open eyes instead of a closed mind. Also, outline the exact projects your interns will be working on and make sure they're not wasting their time and your money.

    I worked at Intuit full-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    Intuit believes that happy employees lead to happy customers who will recommend products. Some of the fabulous employee perks include an annual holiday party, a yearly fitness incentive, and fun employee events. The business is run well, with a laser focus on business outcomes, which drives decisions about what work is necessary and what skills are needed to do that work.

    Cons

    Intuit regularly performs layoffs, often targeting an entire role across the company, a department, or even an entire business unit. Severance payments are probably above average and they offer outplacement services. But I think the odds of being part of a layoff are quite high over a 5-year employment period.

    Pros

    Nobody knows what they are doing
    Quickbase customer support team manager is a blast to play around with; was a systems engineer who unable to perform, so they tossed him into this role, and you can already view a sample of his work online from a client.
    As long as you can act concerned, you've got a job (and you can toy with the moron managers, it's a blast!)

    Cons

    None, it's political, but they all are. And, this is the best group of morons you will ever have the opportunity to toy with. Truly brain dead, PX90 type rood freaks!

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Nothing, stay on the current path and I'll see you at the next interview line. Bwaa ha ha ha ha ha ha ha.
