    Pros

    Work/Life balance Team work Great benefit Great Product

    Cons

    Constant re-org after re-org Heavy managment layers and not enough people doing the actual work Heavy politics and CYA Buddy/Buddy system to survive the layoffs (other employees can attest to this) Can't openly discuss problems without backlash!

    Advice to Management

    Need to get rid of ALOT of managers in the middle layers. While i was there one of the managers told his group "work everyday like its your LAST day!!!" (really sad??)

    Pros

    Pay is very competitive and the work environment is one of balance. Our CEO is very transparent with where we're going, what we've done well and what we need to improve. We do try and balance needs of employees, customers and shareholders. We have a great place to work from our quality facilities, to our social activities.

    Cons

    Lack of career advancement opportunities. Company hires highly skilled middle management leaders but has no opportunities for vertical advancement...everything is lateral. Also, I think it could use a more seasoned executive team capable of driving more growth. Many of the VP and Directors here would be a rung lower in other businesses. Culture has a not invented here mentality but hopefully the latest couple of acquisitions will liven things up from a group who has gotten stale. Our innovation is often yesterday's news to others. As an example, we're scrambling to expand the outsource game at a time others are realizing it's not everything it's cracked up to be. Penny wise. Dollar foolish.

    Advice to Management

    If you would like to cut cost to reinvest in growth. Take a look at the number and cost of all your directors and VP's. We've added a ton of these over the past number of years and I imagine pay them dearly for what they've delivered...substandard growth to employees, shareholders and customers.

    Was wonderful in the late 90's. Will be rough until they succeed in new markets.

    Pros

    good benefits for frontline employees; opinions of frontline are extremely important

    Cons

    if you aren't frontline, you aren't asked; it is all about how you present information, not how good the inofrmation is

    Advice to Management

    think about mid level managers as well as frontline

    Pros

    well managed, work life balance professional and intelligent people strives for excellence and improvement

    Cons

    large corporate structure constant lay offs - every 6 months as the company grows, less accountable to employees.

    Advice to Management

    Manage growth more effectively so lay offs happen less frequently.

    Loved it at first...then...not so much when I was downsized through a reorg of the department.

    Pros

    Benefits were good. On site cafe was nice to have. Plano campus was nice until the ping pong table showed up and took over the exercise room.

    Cons

    Senior management is known to read the latest management book and then implement the action items. Every month seems to be a new book out, which changes the business plan every other month. The Senior Leadership Team (SLT) talks about communication but never seems to communicate anything other than the latest plan. Dedicated employees are completely pushed aside through downsized. If you try to apply for another position that you are qualified for you are not given a chance to interview because they "already have someone in mind".

    Advice to Management

    Stop reading the latest management book and stick with a plan long enough for it to have a chance to work. Change is not good if you are changing just to try something new.

    Pros

    For the most part, REALLY smart people. A CEO who "gets" strategy and is open to other people's opinions. A strong focus on customers added to the strengths resulting from a data-driven culture (at least through 2008) made it a place where you could be proud of the work you did.

    Cons

    In 2008, Intuit acquired a small unprofitable company whose CEO happened to be the golden child of Intuit's Chairman. While this acquisition only affected the Mountain View headquarters (Intuit's Small Business Division), it had a dramatic impact on the culture. The environment rapidly shifted from a focus on rational and data-driven decision making to an environment where self-serving opinions, politics and strong-arming of employees became the norm. This shift is mainly attributable to that small company's CEO being "integrated" into Intuit's ranks despite his open contempt for Intuit's ways. Intuit's culture needed to change. But changing a culture to adapt to a new reality doesn't mean you need to violate the company's core values such as "it's the people", "integrity without compromise" or "think smart, move fast." Unfortunately, these values are now being trampled on a daily basis. Today, a much larger number of employees is looking to leave. Screaming in meetings is apparently no longer frowned upon and employees driven to tears is becoming habitual.

    Advice to Management

    Dare to call out people who are not living Intuit's values -- unless your intent is in fact to trample them, which I doubt. Continue your journey of change -- but not at the expense of what made Intuit the successful and growing company it had become over the past 20+ years. Be strong. Do not let politics and personal agendas change the course of the company. Nobody will win in the end.

    Pros

    Great people, realistic in their position in the market. Open to learning new things. On a growth path. Benefits are top notch.

    Cons

    Extreme fast pace (depending on your department). Same as any company who is competitive (so really this isn't a con) - it can be exhausting. If you don't like change - then this is not the company for you.

    Advice to Management

    Be aware of scope creeep -- the reductions over the past year i understand and know how difficult this was on you to make the decisions. However, in many instances the work didn't go away - it moved to someone else or was spread across the team.

    I think they really care about the people - not perfect but trying I like the idea jams Like it when they ask for employees ideas Like the contest they run to support small businesses

    Cons

    starting to see constant changes

    Advice to Management

    be careful how many times we reorg - you can't gain any traction when you are constantly changing
