    I worked at Intuit as an intern (less than an year)

    Pros

    -Great intern community with a lot of support. You are set up with several mentors during the internship and everyone from the HR is really understanding and easy to work with.
    -You are also housed with the other interns so you have a great opportunity to make a lot of close friends.
    -Relocation is really easy and completely covered. Transportation to work was also covered.
    -Tons of opportunities to network within the company and learn about other projects.
    -For engineering specifically, they do a great job of adding you to a team where you'll be able to focus on what you are actually interested in learning more about. You're usually put on an AGILE team and get to be part of actual development projects.

    Cons

    -The commute from housing to work can be long (there is a shuttle but it took about an hour to get to the office)
    -There is an intern project, which is somewhat loosely organized and not well-defined until late in the internship, so doing implementation isn't possible. Good opportunity to learn about business pitches though.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Had a great experience, everyone was really approachable and enthusiastic to offer resources and advice.

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

    Pros

    Learning culture, very competitive pay, very smart people, great encouragement and resources for personal growth from management.
    Intuit recently restructured the org around TurboTax & Quickbooks/small business solutions which should hopefully refocus the company.

    Cons

    Lots of PowerPoints and analysis paralysis, too many people focused on protecting their personal brand instead of getting things done.

    Pros

    They hire some awesome people, nice environment and good benefits. Enjoyed Women's network meetings.

    Cons

    The training leaves a lot to be desired. Have to figure it out yourself.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Layoffs should be announced to impacted employees at team levels, not with 100 other people.

    Pros

    Top talent attractor
    Strong founder still participating
    Dominant market share
    Best in class product talent

    Cons

    Very top heavy... weak operational leadership at the Business Unit level
    Inneffective at acquiring and integrating new businesses... too many duds with no accountability for bad acquisition strategy and execution
    Heavy gross margins hide gross inneficiencies, particularly in HQ functions
    Focus on the sizzle not the bacon

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Talent management and promotions serve the status quo. Culture is strong but elitist and tilted in favor of outdated reverence to talent sources that, when examined, have not produced "doers". Too many big-titled, non-contributing turf protectors are limiting innovation and creativity. Directors and VPs with few direct reports creates environment where leaders jockey for position vs. delivering for Employees, Customers, and Shareholders (remember that?). Simplify, root out the politicians (they are stil there), and unleash the actual potential that exists. Live up to your lineage.

    I worked at Intuit full-time (more than 8 years)

    Pros

    Intuit is a great company that cares about what their employees have to say, as evidenced in the Annual Employee Survey. Benefits are excellent and pay is good, along with bonuses. Great culture and family feel, co-workers are great and I have formed many friendships through working here.

    Cons

    No stability with management changes. Lots of reorganizations means shifts in reporting lines. I went on vacation and came back to find out I was being transferred to a completely different department, reporting to a new manager due to new organization structure. I was there 1 year, and then another organization structure took place, resulting in me being laid off, along with 120 of my co-workers. I understand these things happen and is a normal part of business, but I feel the way it was handled by senior leadership could have been better. Left an unpleasant taste in my mouth, along with peers who were able to remain employed who were left feeling awkward, and unsure of the future of the company, unsure if more lay offs were going to occur.
