Acquisitions are necessary - but cut out this B.S. of "reverse integration" talk

Pros

Intuit has a good compensation package and a very good work / life balance. Most co-workers are talented.

Cons

Too many layers of management.
Not-so-good acquisitions ("reverse" integration causes major pain and absolutely no results in terms of speed or revenue)

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Keep the customer focus; get rid of this B.S. of "reverse integration" when acquiring companies. Understand that acquired small companies are NOT necessarily better than internal people.

    Leadership finally making the shift to SaaS

    Pros

    Innovation is king, white space time is heavily encouraged, and design-for-delight best practices are being implemented. Management has finally made a companywide commitment to SaaS. These moves are long overdue.

    Cons

    There seems to be some fear in the leadership about how much to invest in existing teams, so we acquire companies instead. Then incoming team leaders are put in charge of divisions, and layoffs ensue. For the survivors, there is a feeling of working for a subsidiary of Intuit.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Invest as much in existing teams as you do in the companies you buy.

    Pros

    Great benefits, good facilities, good company values.

    Cons

    If you're looking for a promotion, don't look here unless you are a yes-man.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Stop hiring braggarts. Results count, not talk. Intuit is driven by Marketing. Perhaps you should listen to the customer and do what the customer wants, not what Marketing wants or Engineering wants.
