    Pros

    Great work life balance, excellent culture of respect, solves hard problems and a business model that has produced a doubling in stock price in the last three years.

    Cons

    A lot of meetings, a focus on consensus can slow decision making on critical items, centralized QA org not as responsive as when it was independent

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Focus on mobile more and trying to get a younger overall engineering culture to keep on the cutting edge of developments in tech

    Pros

    Intuit has amazingly smart people that challenge you and help you grow and learn. The products have real impact on millions of customers' financial lives and it feels good to do work that is truly meaningful. The offices, benefits, and work life balance are great. The CEO inspires the company to always do better for customers and employees.

    Cons

    There can be times when meetings and lots of collaboration are required to get the work done, but I would expect this at any large company.

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

    Pros

    A good company particularly for engineers. Although, I am working only since last 2 months but I have had the privilege of knowing the company very well. Many of my friends who are working in this company since more than 5 years also share the same perspective. I heard that people/engineers are so much pampered such that their efficiency or productiveness automatically decreases. I differ from that, we as Indians are really ready to be grinded by managers and others and think that is FRUGAL and ordinary in a working culture. Intuit is different where RESPECT is there and that is the best quality I would say for this company.

    Cons

    There is lot of competition/politics going on in engineering/management community to IMPRESS / SHOW-OFF their respective managers. Almost everybody (not all) looks like wants to impress their bosses . In this process, real innovation, hard work, creativity, takes a side lane many of the times and it becomes a demo-able business many a times. I also saw that many employees complain about not getting even 10% hike in annual appraisals but not sure about this. Intuit is famous for its payscales and it should rather not do this with its employees. Again, the managers have to become more active on this front.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    This organization is really great and I don't know how can you propagate this but please take care of managers/employees to not waste SO MUCH time to impress their bosses. For eg, for a demo to higher ups, employees tend to create a "script" and practice, which in a way is good but waste lot more time then needed... I mean we all are part of the team. They will actually get automatically impressed, if one will work hardly and HONESTLY. Also, I would request to take into consideration the hikes matter which may be highlighted by AES surveys we have.

    Otherwise, I think we are doing great !
