Great Place to Work...depending on who's your manager

Corporate Communications (Current Employee)
Mountain View, CA

I have been working at Intuit full-time

ProsThe culture feels like a college campus where you get to work with lots of smart people who also happen to be nice. Work/life balance is good. The health and wellness benefits are good, employee stock purchase program and a 401K with matching contribution from company is a nice "bonus" to help with building your financial savings.

ConsAdvancing your career at Intuit can be a challenge. At least in my group, people are judged very quickly once they join the company. Once the managers have decided what level you're capable of achieving, that's where you stay. If you push for a promotion, there's lots of "let's wait and see" and then those promotions rarely happen.

Advice to Senior ManagementStay vigilant when it comes to leading with strong ethics and values and continually emphasizing those areas with employees. Employees living out the company values is a big reason the company is successful.

Good place to work with lots of smart, upbeat people.

Anonymous Employee (Current Employee)

I have been working at Intuit as a contractor for more than 3 years

ProsThe majority of Intuit employees are smart, upbeat and experienced software professionals. Lots of opportunity for Remote working arrangements from home using WebEx, Internet, Intranet, etc.

ConsNot many. Like in most corporate environments, there are upwardly focused managers who listen more to themselves than others, but overall most managers are empowering and trust the talent to do the work.

Advice to Senior ManagementKeep hiring the types of people and personalities that make Intuit a hard working but pleasant and upbeat environment. Go beyond and behind the stacked resume and look for and find the type of person that you want to hire.

Interesting, with ups and downs, great values and culture.

Specialist (Former Employee)
Waltham, MA

I worked at Intuit full-time for more than 5 years

ProsThe benefits at Intuit are incredible. The corporate values are well defined and inspiring. You can grow your career at Intuit.

ConsTraining and Coaching might be a little lacking. Too many meetings at the managerial level. There is a strong focus on leadership, not much focus on effective management

Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend – I'm optimistic about the outlook for this company

A great place to work if you're in the right business unit

Manager (Former Employee)

I worked at Intuit full-time for more than 8 years

ProsLots of career growth opportunity.
Company really invests in the employees.
A change to do real enterprise level work.
Great benefits and flexibility
Good people to work with.

ConsIntuit overall is great but not all leaders in all business units follow the Intuit way. This leaves you watching other Intuit people get to operate one way while you may be stuck doing things completely different.

Intuit still uses the stacked ranking system for performance reviews. This means if you end up working with a group where all are very talented and productive you or someone will get a lesser review because "there's just no way everyone can be that good"

Advice to Senior Managementdropped stacked ranking. it does not work. Pay more attention to VOE. intuit is a great place to work so don't think that low ratings in ares are ok just because they are above industry norms. If industry norms were ok intuit wouldn't be great.

Call Center Monkey

Customer Support Special Intuit Websites (Former Employee)
Denver, CO

I worked at Intuit full-time for more than a year

ProsGreat benefits, encouraged a healthy lifestyle, Life betterment perks (401k, tuition reimbursement, I think they even had home loans). Great group of individuals to work with and spring boarded my career. I would not be where I am without having started there.

ConsCorporate call center focused solely on number of dials, it was a call center that I worked in and it was ran like any other call center. The product that I worked with is no longer owned by Intuit, they were smart and got out of that field as it was bait and switch type product. I hated working there, but it provided for my needs when I needed it.

Advice to Senior ManagementWith your lower level employee's you should listen to them more with product development. They are your first line with your customers and often the face and voice of the company. They know what's going on and the closest insight into what's broken and what works.

Mountain View, CA

I worked at Intuit full-time for more than 8 years
