    Pros

    This review is specifically for the TAM sales team in Plano, TX. Does not reflect my opinions about any other jobs within the company. Reliable income (they won't let you break the bank. But, they won't let you starve either). Great benefits (insurance, 401k, stock). Great people (actually liked all my co-workers and management is respectful/friendly/supportive all the way from Brad Smith down to the direct managers). Lot's of perks = cafeteria, work out room, game room (foosball, ping pong, xbox), good garage parking, frequent free breakfasts, lunches and happy hours). This is a great job for a younger person out of college or someone who has a spouse with a good paying job. They have a great employee stock program and a great matching 401K program. I've never seen a company with such good stock and 401K programs. Oh, and the health/dental/vision insurance is also the best I've ever seen. If you can afford it, you definitely should max out your 401k and employee stock purchase. It is literally free money. Also, when Intuit says they care about work/life balance, they really mean it and live it out.

    Cons

    Not a long-term place for a hard-charging, high performing sales person or someone with alot of career ambitions. I've seen some great sales reps leave for greener pastures. Almost zero opportunity to advance career (unless you want to move away from Dallas area). Part of the problem is that there are no new jobs created. Plano location sells a legacy tax software to a shrinking market (accounting firms) who rarely change their software (about 5% per year). In addition, because they make it such a great place to work, there is not much turnover. So, there are almost no job advancement opportunities. But, it's really hard to leave this place (decent income, great culture, great people, great benefits, etc). The customers are generally a pain. Of course there are some great customers too. But, mostly you are dealing with accountants = dry personality, don't know how to run their businesses, don't have good people skills and stingy. They will fight you for $100 on a $10,000 deal (makes sense though since their job is to save their clients every penny they can find). This describes mostly the older generation of accountants. The newer generation are much easier to deal with, as they understand the value of technology. Lastly... even though it is decent pay, leadership has figured out how to reduce our income, just about every year. As a team, we are getting paid about 10% less each year. A couple of us have really good territories. But, the others are struggling.

    Pros

    - The company has awesome benefits and compensation packages - The work life balance is super chill - Get all the equipment you need - Pretty easy going people to work with - If you are looking for a job the rest of your life, this place is perfect (don't expect to get rich, but don't worry about not having a steady paycheck. Not bad for San Diego lifestyle).

    Cons

    - Terrible place to learn any new skills on becoming an up and coming engineer or product person - Not many have real world experience running their own businesses - Everyone has to wait on someone to tell them what to do, instead of taking the initiative - Management staff take all the kudos, but will never take the blame for something. Lack of accountability. - If a project doesn't do well, a great team suffers financially (salary increase, bonus or promotion) instead of rewarding people that are great employees. - Too many company pets. A LOT of people suck up to the right managers and don't add much value. Wouldn't last long at many other companies.

    Advice to Management

    Build manager skills to be able to look into what each person is contributing on each team from the director level down to the associate level. There are some rock star legend employees that are being dragged down by lazy and poisonous workers. Very few great employees drive 80% of the work at TurboTax SD.

    Pros

    The employee experience at Intuit was wonderful.

    Cons

    Demandforce is a mess, from top to bottom. I suspect the company will be dismantled or implode within a few years

    Advice to Management

    If you want to save Demandforce, you really need to start fresh, instead of keeping the old mid-level management in place. The product is no longer competitive, and you aren't approaching SaaS properly

    Continue being proactive and interacting with your team.

    Pros

    The people are almost all super nice and welcoming. Intuit attracts and hires some of the brightest employees, and for the most part everyone genuinely cares about each other. The company really tries to perform well while also keeping employees and customers happy. The products are fantastic and I have always been proud to work there.

    Cons

    Only the executives seem to make decisions. And the executives make the decisions based on a lot of input from their team and other teams. The downside is it takes a long time for decisions to be made. Plus as a non-executive I feel like I don't get to make decisions. At most I get to barely influence the decisions.

    Advice to Management

    Have a culture that supports autonomous and powerful employees. Intuit tries but it misses the mark.

    Pros

    Generous compensation, lots of free food, good benefits.

    Cons

    Management changes frequently, direction changes constantly, and there are layoffs in one part of Intuit or another during the summer every year.

    Advice to Management

    Play a longer game. It takes time for initiatives to bear fruit.
