    Former Employee - Art Director in Woodland Hills, CA

    I worked at Intuit full-time (more than 5 years)

    Pros

    Great culture, they truly care about their employees. I didn't know how good I had it until they sold off my business unit. The best benefits, stock options, espp, health care, we care and give back charity hours, yearly gym incentives, beautiful offices.

    Cons

    Looking back, the only cons were just like any other corporate environment. Lots of meetings, acronyms etc but that's with any large org.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Keep on keepin' on, I really enjoy seeing the transformation to a design focused company from the outside. Brad is a very charismatic leader and that goes such a long way.

    Current Employee - Rotational Development Program Associate in Mountain View, CA
    Current Employee - Rotational Development Program Associate in Mountain View, CA

    I have been working at Intuit

    Pros

    As a rotational associate you get to work on things and in roles that you're utterly unqualified to do based on experience. Great opportunity to learn and grow.

    Cons

    Intuit is a 31 year old company and the culture is a bit older than a lot of the hot tech cos in the valley. I'd also say that a big problem is that we build a product that many of us haven't had to use out in the wild as small business owners. It's not like making a consumer product. That's why a lot of young folks head toward Mint.com.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    We're heavy in the middle.

    Current Employee - Director in San Diego, CA
    Current Employee - Director in San Diego, CA

    I have been working at Intuit full-time (less than an year)

    Pros

    Three months now, and I think I finally found my last employer.
    Best kept secret in San Diego.
    Warm welcome for veterans via the IMN and several leaders who are military veterans.
    The friendliest culture I have ever been a part of.

    Cons

    Adjusting to a "go slow, to go fast" pace. Inquiry without Advocacy is a core competency and I'm not good at it yet.
    Several folks who have been here for 10+ years are clearly not right for the next chapter.
    Lack of internal resources (Core Corp Functions), data/information, and world class processes.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Cut your B players.
    Hire more from world class companies.
    Invest in the core...it's slowing our growth down.
    Flatten the org, and reduce total cost of workforce by injecting university talent, and transitioning military talent. Grow your own.

    Current Employee - Senior Product Manager in Mountain View, CA

    I have been working at Intuit full-time (more than 8 years)

    Pros

    Environment, Culture, Customer Focus, Benefits, Stocks

    Cons

    Politics (the subtle one), Speed at which things move, Innovation in new areas

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Get your product manager and the leadership from engineering background than pure MBAs and a lot of things will probably be fixed. Your commercial and marketing innovation is great but product and technical innovation sucks...

    Former Employee - Manager in Mountain View, CA

    I worked at Intuit full-time (more than 5 years)

    Pros

    Good products. Positive move into the cloud space. Stock price continues to rise. Lots of well-intentioned people. Nice campus, amenities and total rewards package. Great set of values, but... (see below)

    Cons

    You need to be politically savvy to survive and move up. See and be seen. Smile and wave at the right people. Beware pushing back or being blunt...the emperors are naked. Company values are openly violated by toxic leaders. HR department is complicit and/or lacking courage.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Several highly toxic top execs recently departed...but not before they chased aware/fired/demotivated/jaded many, many good employees. This is an open secret in the ranks...if you upset the wrong senior political force, you are done. Is this the culture you really want to aspire to?

    Current Employee - Service & Support Representative in Los Angeles, CA
    Current Employee - Service & Support Representative in Los Angeles, CA

    I have been working at Intuit full-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    Great Benefits, steady schedule, and a lot of great people. PTO only grows, the longer you've been here and everyone beyond the direct customer interaction has a lot of passion.

    Cons

    Leadership is rarely clear on what the overall plan for people in the lower level. It is very difficult to grow in the company and a lot of hard work is overlooked. Many of the lower end representatives put little to no effort into their work, which is very frustrating.

    Stale and bureaucratic

    Former Employee - Senior Manager in Mountain View, CA
    Former Employee - Senior Manager in Mountain View, CA

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

    Pros

    Good processes in product management and engineering.

    Cons

    No clue in other functional areas outside of product management and engineering/prod dev. PM-led innovation. No customer service or partnership competency. Very low customer satisfaction level.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Clean house at the highest level. The biggest problem is that your senior leadership is outdated, inexperienced and/or incentivized to do the wrong things.

    Amazing Work-Life Balance

    Former Employee - Marketing Manager in Mountain View, CA
    Former Employee - Marketing Manager in Mountain View, CA

    I worked at Intuit as an intern (less than an year)

    Pros

    The company honors the entire needs of an individual, and creates norms around work-life balance, including promoting exercise, family time and other well-being measures. Amazing culture in that respect.

    Cons

    The company moves slowly at times, and in certain divisions. The approval process is confusing and overly-complicated.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    I would encourage the middle managers to shorten up the approval process in order to get more innovations flowing through the company.
