    Pros

    Good comp plan
    Very friendly colleagues
    Nice office

    Cons

    Like clockwork, every July 31st they layoff 5% of the global workforce. Morale drops and those left behind wonder when they are next.

    Advice to Management

    Stop hiring and take a minute to train those that have befn dedicated to the long term success of the company vs hiring the latest BCG consultant that wows you at a 30 minute A4A presentation!

    Pros

    The benefits are amazing, with minimal co-pays. Vacation is earned on overtime worked in addition to regular hours, so it will build up quickly. Allowing employees paid time off to work in the community is also a great perk.

    Cons

    The management team is in need of an overhaul. Management plays favorites and if they don't like you, they will find any reason to get rid of you, even if they have to make one up. They do not care if you have a disability, even one that is recognized and documented. They will find a way to use the disability against you and get rid of you. They say they are big on values, however just walking through the office, you will see management break numerous values, most importantly Integrity without Compromise, and It's the People. It's the People, only if you are one of the favored few.

    Advice to Management

    Employee engagement scores are still low and aren't going up. Maybe it's time to take a look at management instead of the employees. Instead of asking 'why are the employees unhappy?', the company chooses to lose the employee, even when the employee produces more quality work than anyone else on the team. The real problem is the quality of the management team and not the employees. Take a look at which teams have the highest turn-over rate and ask why? Interview the employees leaving so you have a better understanding why they are unhappy. The Annual Employee Survey is never going to tell you the 'truth', especially when the employees have been threatened when there is a bad review.

    Pros

    - Good compensation
    - Health benefits are expensive, but nice.
    - Good location
    - Great Office

    Cons

    Where do I start.
    - Intuit has one of the worst university recruiting teams in the market. I was an intern as well and the way I was treated by the recruiting team was horrible and perplexing. My full time offer was delayed by 6 months and my emails/phone calls were unanswered all the time. They would only get in touch when they wanted to, not when you wanted to. I was make fake promises time and again.
    - This is a high politics company. If you're in the good books of the management, you're good. But if you don't like something in the team/Company, the best way to solve it is to keep it to yourself.
    - Small things will be magnified and pointed out to you time and again.
    - Some teams use really old technology. That is a big NO for some one starting their career in software development.
    - There is very little innovation in the company.
    - Intuit has a core set of values that all employees are supposed to exemplify. Most people working their either were not interested in them, or didn't agree.
    - Intuit is not able to retain good young talent. Most of the interns/Co ops in my batch who got really good reviews and were highly recommended for a full time offer did not join or left within 6 months of joining.
    - Very difficult to move in the company for career growth.
    - Definitely not a cutting edge technology company.

    Advice to Management

    Please take care of engineer. They are not happy and if they look happy, it is because they want to be in your good books.
    Major improvements required in the recruiting teams.
    Make efforts to retain young talent. Intuit is leaking good talented people (interns and co ops).

    Pros

    Free food, snacks, commute, and there are two snooker tables
    Business class travel (u just need a reason to travel)
    Corporate credit card swipe for anything (food and drinks)
    U will have is some amazing events in amazing places where company spends a huge amount of money, Just have fun
    apart from these perks which mean less nothing worth mentioning about the real work

    Cons

    Plan big, commit more and deliver practically nothing- Three sign of an amazing team you are in
    Zero work life balance at all, if you are eager to do something and people notice that you fall in workers radar u will always be working. WLB goes for a toss
    Many managers are bad, they want to do things which showcases them as best, don't care about any other outcome
    Good managers don't have much say cause their % is less, and their words weigh nothing
    Work work work or talk talk talk u will get the same hike, do what makes u sleep at night
    do ur regular work less, participate in events which mean nothing to get visibility

    Advice to Management

    Find all the talkers in the company and make them work
    Annual focal is a joke, u don't consider the work done over last two(four) quarters, last good/bad event in the team gets highlighted
    360 feedback mail comes with less than 2 days time to respond

    Pros

    Flexibility, free transport , and good Perks, fancy restaurant team lunches, innovation ( not sure what innovation ) but we call it INNOVATION.

    Cons

    Politics & Politics which is destroying the company's brand. You should join only if you are a manager if you are planning to join as an IC role make sure you know the art to please your reporting manager and be ready to get fired anytime, keep giving interviews as you never know when you get fired, personally I am not adding any value to my work now.. My talent is getting rusted.
    People here focus on PR activities rather than core work .........specially manager have no iota of knowledge on evaluation they literally get away with anything I mean anything so female employee be AWARE !!

    Advice to Management

    Please stop working on how to eliminate AES scoring, rather than eliminating employee.

    Pros

    Great benefits and working from home is a plus. CEO is great, but needs to pay attention to leadership at VP level.

    Cons

    Human resources is highly political. It doesn't matter what or how you do your work, only how political you are. Basically, be sure to use all of the latest Intuit buzz words, make sure your powerpoint is fancy, and do a ton of sucking up and you'll be highly successful...your lack of skills, knowledge, passive aggressive behavior, or laziness won't matter.

    Advice to Management

    Pay attention to areas of HR with high turnover and low employee survey scores. Some wonder why leaders with this are still there...could it be a connection outside of work, such as religion?

    Pros

    They pay good for their US employees

    Cons

    All decisions are made by small amount of people in the leadership. You must influence them personally one by one in order to convince them to vote for your idea. As an individual who is not in the leadership you do not have real option to influence, just do what you are told.
    In the current market it is not the expected management style

    Advice to Management

    Adopt the modern management style where people who are actually doing the work probably know a lot about it and stop overrule them just because you are more senior even though you do not really know what you are talking about.

    Cons

    Bad managers are a plenty. They try and make you work like energizer bunnies. ON ALL THE TIME. . The manager gave me a stmt no of hrs u put in is proportional to .sal u draw. Bad managers are a plenty. here are some backshudbackbonelessagers who want ppl to,work 24/7. There is lot of politics goinI d around this place . Idontknow how someone rates this place high for work life balance.the work is also substandard. I guess they shud change their motto to "squeeze the employee till last drop of blood".

    Advice to Management

    Train the managers to respect some personal time of employees. Dont take employees sundays fr granted
