    Pros

    Benefits package is the best I've seen
    Flexible hours and workplace
    Decent work-life balance

    Cons

    Management by slogan
    Middle managers often don't know what it actually going on in their groups
    Promotion is by politics and not work output
    Business units are siloed and even within a BU people don't work together towards a common goal

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Talk to your employees and figure out what is really going on in your departments.

    Senior Leadership has solid experience.
    Benefits are above average especially health benefits.
    Products are top notch. Most customers love them and have high retention.

    Culture has changed b/c of several acquisitions.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Focus more on organic innovation versus acquisitions.

    Pros

    Management seeks feedback to determine direction. Frequent all hands meetings to keep us informed and motivated

    Cons

    Security Management fears owning outcome; very indecisive, despite DACI and shared vision. Too eager to re-direct ownership issues.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Own the outcome

    It has been very disturbing how incompetent some of the senior leadership are. Not a clue how to manage and how to grow

    Pros

    employee friendly in general and great brains in Business Units but IT is not a place to be proud to work for.

    Cons

    No growth opportunity. All the senior open positions are given to friends of senior management and often inexperience and incompetent people are hired for open positions. Hence its hard to grow in Intuit IT.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Pls talk to engineers and middle management. Get a true picture of what is really going on. Don't believe in everything you hear from directors and stop wasting company's money and resources on people not qualified to be on the job.

    Pros

    Great place to learn what you are interested in learning.
    Lots of opportunities if you are the right fit.
    Great people to make friends.

    Cons

    Heavy office politics.
    You need to know how to market yourself efficiently and move between projects and groups to stay afloat.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Enable even more knowledge sharing and reuse across org units.
    Provide better and more transparent performance management and review/feedback mechanism.

    Confusing and unorganized, with a splash of bad management.

    Pros

    The flexibility of working from home, and taking days off when need.

    Cons

    Communication and processes keep this department down. Again, management does not understand the concerns of it's team and it is VERY corporate. They have their ways of doing things which can take years to get things done. They think nothing is wrong with their company culture they don't take changes well.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Change all management and listen to the changes requested by your employees.

    I worked at Intuit

    Pros

    great people, great on-site services (there's a gym, a game room), extensive training initially and then additional training intermittently

    Cons

    poor work/life balance, poor communication across levels of the organization, frequent layoffs of whole departments, employees come and go frequently due to the nature of the business

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Recognize that employees are not machines. Many people do great work and are recognized for it, but spending 8-10 hours taking call after call is very difficult - especially during busy season. I think something should be done so that some off the phone time can be available and rotated amongst people for projects or training. They try to do that now but it's impossible because they can never keep enough people on the floor.

    Pros

    great people
    interesting and challenging work
    pay was less than what I have seen on this site

    Cons

    lack of work/life balance
    lack of strong upper management decision making and communication

    Practice work/life balance instead of preaching it. This is very uneven across teams/departments at Intuit
