Pros

Overall Intuit has a great culture that values employees and learns from mistakes. There is high energy and senior management is completely bought into the mission to drive growth and turn the company around to drive organic growth. I like the collaborative environment and usually look forward to going to work every day.

Cons

We need to make faster decisions. Delayed decisions impact downstream groups that are expected to "make up" the lost time and still execute at the same standards if the decision had been made in a timely manner. Sr. management needs to empower/trust employees to make and own decisions, including financial ones. Virtually no major financial decision can be made unless you're a director. I really like my job, which is good because the work load is quite heavy, but I think our group is leaner and more overworked than other teams.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Improve "say-do" ratio on decision making philosophy

    Pros

    Compensation is competitively strong...smart, highly analytical people...the practices, process, analysis and strategy development within marketing is very strong...when you go to conferences or talk with others (especially in hi tech) you see how high the TurboTax organization is performing. Campus and benefits are quite nice...easy to get spoiled here.

    Cons

    Career growth is a challenge...sr positions are more often not filled from within...difficult to move past certain levels internally within the organization...very few people developers...yes people must take responsibility for their growth, but Intuit in San Diego lacks sr leaders who enable, coach and mentor.

    You won't hear this much, but Intuit is quite political..not in the usual fashion...but a subtle way...who talks the corp jargon, those who can frame (even if they can't deliver results), etc. It's in every company...and it's clearly here at Intuit.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Innovation is great...but be careful we don't fall into the trap of giving projects so much focus they become "pet" projects and we get "stars" in our eyes to quickly. some of our biggest businesses today, started out "ahead of the market curve" and was something additional we were doing...not "THE" thing. Improve the career opportunities within the organization (mainly in San Diego)...drive leaders to better mentors, coaches who enable employees to advance and grow based on strong performance and results (not just who "pitches" well)

    A good (not a great) place to work

    Pros

    Intuit values its Forbes 'Great Place To Work' rating and works hard to maintain the company's ranking. Compensation and benefit packages are generous. Most employees have a better than average work-life balance. There are numerous opportunities for learning and cross-organization exposure, including internal best practice report-outs, external speakers, open annual planning and learning summits.

    Cons

    Intuit has many slow-moving engines. The various subdivisions are siloed and often process-intensive environments. Intuit employees are not empowered to make decisions. Be prepared for a steep learning curve, filled with Intuit speak.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    The organization is top-heavy and turning into an old boys' club. Streamline, innovate and hold individuals accountable.
