    I have been working at Intuit

    Pros

    Work from home, an OK rate per hour. You can do your job and be compensated for a job well done. Depending on the manager you get praise and a good bonus at end of season.

    Cons

    It is seasonal with no benefits other than 6% 401 K. I would like to see more year round positions. Once you master the technology and the Intuit way your season is over and you have to wait until December again. Some people get offered to stay a bit longer but Intuit has a policy that seasonal employees cannot work more than six months.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Every tax season you let go of amazing talent that could help you grow the business year-round and shine in customer service. Use your tax advisers to help you grow your quickbooks business and integrate your tax software to the quickbooks programs.

    I worked at Intuit as an intern for less than a year

    Pros

    intuit gives you a ton of autonomy. they treat you like you're an employee and let you make mistakes. at the same time they're nurturing and pay interns a ton of attention.

    Cons

    there's a huge varioation of experiences depending on where you're placed in the company. Some products have small teams. others have massive teams that are difficult to influence.

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

    Pros

    CEO (Brad Smith) isn't shy about playing offense, growth is a big priority, as is being innovative and pushing the envelope with their offerings.

    Cons

    While the company maintains there's a focus on three stakeholders (employee, customer, shareholder), it's definitely not in that order. Employee morale has waned over the last year or two, yet the stock has outperformed the market. Internal mobility has definitely been curtailed in favor of external hires.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Keep your employees happy, involve them in more decisions, and manage change more effectively. Bringing in new blood is great for ideation, but it opens you up to lots of institutional knowledge walking out the door. Remember, no regrettable losses.

    I worked at Intuit as an intern for less than a year

    Pros

    Everyone was very friendly and encouraging. There were intern projects that we choose and then brainstormed for in our whitespace time (10% of paid time is encouraged to be a project outside of usual work). All of the interns pitched the ideas to the senior management, best were chosen to be implemented. It was a really good opportunity in going through the whole design process.

    Cons

    Management is very encouraging, but then vague about what to work on. It can lead to miscommunication.

    I have been working at Intuit full-time for more than 10 years

    Pros

    Aspirational environment, solid commitment to company values, mobility and development, friendly environment. This is a group of nice people trying to make a difference for our millions of customers. Exciting to be part of a group that is so customer-back in their approach.

    Cons

    Friendly environment can cause avoidance of difficult conversations, passive aggressive behavior instead of direct and candid communication. Still not good at narrowing the focus. We take on too many priorities and instead of narrowing, we just bucket them at a higher level. Need to be more candid in letting each other know what we can and can't support with our available bandwidth.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Don't stop being aspirational in pursuit of candid feedback and employee development. But build employee and manager capabilities and hold them accountable.
