    I have been working at Intuit full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    I could right a novel about how great intuit is to work for, but I'm going to keep it short and sweet with a few bullet points. - the people are incredibly smart and incredibly nice - the compensation is the best in the area - they truly care about their employees - it should be your goal to work here

    Cons

    I really am struggling to think of any... It can be quite seasonal based work so some ups and downs in workload

    Advice to Management

    Ummm whatever you are doing is working! Keep it up!

    Pros

    Excellent pay and benefits package. Good company culture in general. Innovation and new ideas are welcome and rewarded.

    Cons

    Intuit always seems to be trying to play catch-up with smaller, more agile companies that threaten disruption, often shifting priorities to meet the latest "threat". Cumbersome and time-consuming review process. Career opportunities are probably more prevalent in the MountainView office.

    Advice to Management

    Move to a continuous review process where ongoing reviews are built in to the weekly one-on-ones.

    I have been working at Intuit full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Intuit is a case study - literally - in how a 35 year old company can learn to be a lean start up. With a deep leadership bench in co-founder Scott Cook and CEO Brad Smith, this is a company that is learning fast and delivering awesome - and will continue to innovate to transform peoples' financial lives.

    Cons

    Intuit has undergone some tremendous upheaval in the last year. If you're not agile or open to adventure, this may not be the place for you.

    Advice to Management

    Empower the front lines to gain deep customer insights, and place smart bets to innovate based on those insights.

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

    Pros

    Great people to work with, great benefits, nice location, good workspace. Lower and medium class management usually is very cooperative. At least in my team.

    Cons

    Too much politics everywhere. The higher you position, the more you get involved into the meetings which results with no time to work on projects or need to work after hours just to get things done. Too much micromanagement. Promotions are very specific to the teams: some managers tend to get their people promoted too early which results with employees struggling with the responsibilities they are not ready for; others tend to postpone promotions to make sure people are ready to work at new position (e.g. ready for politics, effective discussions and ready to 'sell' their ideas).

    Advice to Management

    Please avoid micro-managing people. The more meetings you schedule, the less job gets done. Some people (talkers) love that, others (doers) have to struggle to do what they have to do having 3-4 meetings a day.

    I worked at Intuit full-time

    Pros

    Strong based with reason opportunity to grow your base year over year with promotions and COL increases. Great opportunity for variable compensation

    Cons

    Somewhat of an "artificial" cap on variable compensation. Politics internally are valued as highly as performance in sales.

    Advice to Management

    Encouraged to recognize true sales talent. Provide increase support to drive sales to grow volume and individual annual income.

    Pros

    The San Francisco office was a great place to work -- until they laid everyone off.

    Cons

    Great sales people selling a product that is average at best.

    Advice to Management

    You'll need to make some software innovations to stay relevant.

    I worked at Intuit full-time

    Pros

    Intuit has a solid foundation for for success. Their established brand, great benefits, and quality product offering make it a great place to work.

    Cons

    With big publicly traded companies like Intuit you can anticipate lots of changes without much control. Unfortunately sometimes those changes can lead to restructuring and downsizing which, depending on where you are at within the organization, can have a negative impact .

    Advice to Management

    Make it easier to promote staff from within. It doesn't have to be such a long, drawn out, formal process. Invest in system improvements where employees can operate under one consistent platform, allowing the company to operate much more efficiently and deliver more effectively for its customers.

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

    Pros

    Really laid back environment and manager's are easy to talk to about concerns. They have a great bonus system and tend to hire top performers which makes going to work much better when you have people doing their share of the work.

    Cons

    Would be nice to have a food credit for at least one of the meals.

    Advice to Management

    Hire up management should spend a little more time with lower employees in a one on one meeting - lunch or just a casual meeting over coffee and a bagel..
