I worked at Intuit

Innovative
Aggressive pursuit of growth
Very strong operational rigor
Conceptually place very high value on employees
Incredible focus on developing leaders

Cons

Some signficant blind spots in key VP and GM (division head) positions
A few selected 'tunnel vision' areas where new market ventures are held too long before killing

Advice to ManagementAdvice

You have defined all the tenets required to be unbelievable, and are very close on many fronts: operating values, employee value proposition, strategy, etc. Apply them consistently & hold top leaders accountable when they don't.

    If you are a seasoned sales professional, you might look elsewhere.

    I worked at Intuit

    Pros

    Great pay and bonuses
    Great perks, work out facility, time off to do volunteer work, free lunches a lot of the time
    Good benefits
    Some really great people
    Good products
    Stable company (at least where I was)

    Cons

    Performance is more evaluated on obedience than results. Free thought and creativity is seen as rocking the boat and you run the risk of being singled out. Very micromanaged, you can be over your sales goal but if you didn't hit the required number of calls or required "talk time" you can be fired. I guess if you like a call center atmosphere you may be happy at Intuit, however, if you are a seasoned sales professional you will probably want to look elsewhere. A lot of the activity required is not revenue generating, just looks good on some report that upper management sees to make your manager look like he/she has control of you. Seems that there is a lot of favoritism and senior management looks the other way. If you thrive in corporate politics you will probably be successful at Intuit, but if you don't choose to play those games, you will not.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Be more honest in interviews with candidates. Be more honest in monthly performance reviews and evaluate your people on results, not obedience and popularity with upper management. These are people you manage, not sheep. Know that creativity and individualism is a good thing, especially for a technology company, you need fresh ideas.
