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

    Pros

    Salary is good but other benefits are just imaginery

    Cons

    Many managers and directors are very racist and political
    You can not trust most of the managers there. They tell you lots of good things but eventually you'll be in a bad place
    Fight between various departments like CTG, CTO and GES leading to lots of re-orgs and difficult to work
    No help in career development, managers focus improving their career

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Please hire passionate and committed people for in management with some humane sense, most of them are not.

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

    Pros

    Money, Money & Money..... Nothing else...... You will get a BIG pay check at the end of every month, Stock Options, Facilities like transportation, food.... all these are excellent....

    Cons

    You will be working on outdated technologies (legacy groups). For surviving in these legacy groups, you need to be an expert in office politics. People here for long term dominates all others. Your skill is least bothered here. Senior management support only managers. Lady managers are really high in these legacy groups and even if they are completely wrong, Intuit will not take any action against them. Some of these managers are really misusing this, even though there are some good lady managers too.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Listen to employees.... not just from senior management. Giving preference to ladies is a very good culture, but Intuit is on the extreme side...

    Former Contractor - Tax Advisor Specialist in Remote, OR

    I worked at Intuit as a contractor (less than a year)

    Pros

    The job itself (Tax Advisor Specialist) was not bad. Helping customers is rewarding.

    Cons

    The management was terrible. It was impossible to get them to communicate with anyone. They refuse to respond to emails regarding scheduling/contract extensions and general assistance. They were downright rude to seasonal help on my team.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Show some respect and appreciation to your seasonal employees, especially ones with credentials. This would encourage people to come back from year to year and improve your reputation in general. The way many of the TAS Alumni were treated was actually unacceptable.

    Pros

    Good Pay : That is the only plus point
    Company is cash rich
    If you can play politics, it's "the" place to be
    If you butter up the right people, no need to do any work

    Cons

    Petty Politics
    Favoritism
    Performance does not mean that it will be recognized
    Too many people waiting in line to take away the work that you have done
    No visibility at all if you are a fresher

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Stop treating people like slaves
    Don't let it turn into a service company

    I have been working at Intuit

    Pros

    None that I can think of

    Cons

    Too much politics
    You have to be obedient to progress and survive
    Highest management showed lot of appreciation towards work done by particular team one month. Guess what, team was then laid off following month as business direction had changed.
    No appreciation for talent but obedience is truly encouraged.
    Middle managers are clueless. This company can pull your career back rather than moving it ahead. Definitely not a good place to work!!

    Stop playing with careers of people

    Pros

    Good Benefits, you can enjoy the "fancy" yearly company party (cost $$$).

    Cons

    Too much changes and politics. There were three big changes with one year, then a layoff. A team was working on a big production release on site until midnight, then 40% engineers were got the layoff notice before the lunch time.

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

    Pros

    Nice convenient facility in San Diego north county. I like the gym. The cafeteria food is pretty good. Mac or PC laptops given for use making it easy to take to meetings.

    Cons

    I'd have to agree with another poster -- a lot of obvious favoritism and politics! Don't complain to your manager though or you will be looked down upon. Just smile...act happy even if you are not! If you get on the wrong side of management there is no turning back.

    I too have heard engineers 'bragging' about working nights and weekends. I don't really see that as a completely dedicated worker -- often times that engineer is not organized and can't get work done in a 40 hour work week. Often an engineer who works this much has no family, no spouse, no interests and thus works the nights and weekends just to stay busy.

    Intuit wants you to be innovative with Innovation Days but the guidelines can be strict and narrow- not exactly what one hopes for when you hear "innovation".

    Intuit's number of product offerings hasn't changed much in years.

    The company is not as great as people think it is. There are many other great companies in San Diego to work for.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Listen to the engineers and what they have to say. You will learn a lot! The managers only give you the answers that you want.

    Current Employee - Payroll Specialist in Reno, NV
    Current Employee - Payroll Specialist in Reno, NV

    I have been working at Intuit full-time (more than 10 years)

    Pros

    Decent benefits for this region.

    Cons

    Middle management is the biggest weakness. A majority of the Sales Managers have no real world sales experience. The 'ol' boy' network is big time at play at the Reno. NV site. Sales Management acts high school at best when it comes to evaluations and promotions.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Recently Intuit released a portion of the staff and had them rebid for their jobs. Great concept, however you brought the wrong leaders back! The very same sales manager that are in the network and are only looking to self promote. Clean house one more time and weed out the self promoting dead weight that has been in place for the past 10 years.

    Bad Expensive Cafeteria Foods

    Current Employee - Anonymous Employee
    Current Employee - Anonymous Employee

    I have been working at Intuit

    Pros

    There is a cafeteria on campus.

    Cons

    - Bad food quality
    - Low quantity
    - Expensive even after subsidy
    - No company's survey on cafeteria/foods

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Want to be a 30-year old startup? Provide decent free lunch to employees like Google, Linkedin, Facebook, or any low profile startups like Tango. Your employees work hard and we don't have time to buy foods else where.
