    Pros

    Good work life balance, enjoy the team I work with, benefits are great

    Cons

    No room to grow and systems are an Achilles' Heel

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Don't wait until it's too late - listen to employees when things are faulty. Upper management should not disregard things that managers are telling them.

    Former Employee - Lacerte Technical Support Representative - Seasonal in Plano, TX
    Former Employee - Lacerte Technical Support Representative - Seasonal in Plano, TX

    I worked at Intuit full-time (less than a year)

    Pros

    Full time. Good training. Extensive over the shoulder OJT.
    Once you learn all the systems and the software, you can control the panic you might feel when an unknown problem comes up. They are always trying to automate everything into a helpful database and/or watch you for signs of distress.

    Cons

    It does get to high stress during the tax season. This usually starts as a seasonal crew from which they will select a few to make full time offers to after season.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Considering that seasonals are evaluated at least twice and usually get bonuses (though maybe not the maximum), more should be allowed in for following seasons.
    This is not the policy now although this concept is given lip service.

    Pros

    Intuit not only provides great tangible benefits to its employees, but the very culture exudes employee-centric values. The management at every level sets the tone of owning your own future but does everything they can to encourage, challenge, and support you.

    Cons

    There really aren't a ton of detractors except that it can appear to be difficult to advance. In some areas it seems like there can be little movement.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Continue to hold people accountable at every level, bring out the best in everyone by helping individuals to see how they help carry the vision forward on a daily basis.

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

    Pros

    Intuit has great values and the people you work with are always willing to help. I've always had the flexibility of working from home when I need to. They have great benefits that you can utilize from charging you electric/hybrid car for free, getting a zipcar on campus for free, and reduced pricing for emergency back up day care services.

    Cons

    Very flat finance organization so it's hard to move up, the best you can you do is move around different BUs to get exposure to different leadership teams.

    Annual lay-offs are the little-known secret at Intuit

    Former Employee - Anonymous Employee

    I worked at Intuit

    Pros

    Consistently voted as one of Forbes magazine's Top 100 Places to Work
    Good compensation, great benefits
    Great work environment (in most business units)
    Smart, passionate people

    Cons

    Your experience at Intuit is heavily dependent on the group and/or manager you work for. Constant lay-offs and re-orgs make it difficult for you to have control what group you're in or who you report to. Intuit consistently lays people off every year and the layoffs are not done by performance, so if you're one of the top performers you could be laid off and if you're one of the worst performers you could stay. After the layoffs, the numbers of workers are cut dramatically but the work load remains the same, so everyone left is tasked with taking on the extra work.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    We all know that Intuit eliminating "positions, not people" is just a way to avoid legal issues, and it doesn't incentivize anyone to become a top performer. Since many people who were rated "outstanding" have been laid off and others who were rated "needs improvement" kept their jobs, it doesn't make anyone feel good for having been chosen to either stay or go. If you are chosen to stay, it's not because you were a superstar, it's just because your position wasn't eliminated. What's the point of striving to be an outstanding employee when it doesn't have any bearing on whether or not you keep your job?
