    Former Employee - Intern in Mountain View, CA

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

    Pros

    The company has a new set of values and these focus strongly on being bold and being honest. It instills a feeling of pride in the employees. I had a phenomenal time working there. I was an intern there.

    Cons

    From a younger person point of view, it does seem like a very mom and pop type of company. The average employee age is pretty high (mid to late 30's). While this is not a bad thing, it just felt like the company isn't innovating as fast as it could. But, intuit actually recognizes this and is actively involved in their internship program and is trying to bring in younger minds, their internship program is very good.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Don't get complacent with the product, keep innovating!

    Politics and Favoritism

    I worked at Intuit full-time (more than 5 years)

    Pros

    Nice facility, great benefits. Company is doing well.

    Cons

    Very political and lots of bureaucracy. Discourages creativity. Culture of constant lay offs makes people very competitive and not help each other. Decisions are not made easily. Favoritism is huge and you can't succeed unless you play the 'game'. People are afraid to admit to having a life outside of work and there is too much 'bragging' about working nights and weekends.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Eliminate bureaucracy and favoritism. Don't allow few mid managers to hold all the decision power. The company was much better when I first started but in the last few years have turned downhill. There is no life/work balance because it's such a cut throat environment.

    Pros

    Great perks and benefits. Really friendly culture, everyone is helpful. If there's anything you need in order to complete a project, they'll make sure to get that for you.

    Cons

    Larger companies tend to move slower. Even if you have a great idea, it could take ages for it to see the light of day or it may never see the light of day because of their process.

    Pros

    Best Company I have worked with, Great Work Culture, Great Colleagues, Growing Technology, Good Benefits, Great Place to work , Supports Diversity.

    Cons

    Huge Orgs and sometimes Frequent re-orgs so you have to be very adaptive in working with a new manager every couple of years.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Similar UI experience across all products will make the customers WOW. No one seems to pay enough attention to how products sold by the same company have different interaction workflows and are confusing to the customer.

    Pros

    Kind people, good work/life balance, great benefits

    Cons

    Intuit is more and more focused on internal appearances. Make your project look good (e.g.'all-green dashboards'), and you'll be rewarded. Reality about products and customers and quality are irrelevant. Leaders are marketers who don't understand products or work required to make them. They believe what they're fed and don't ask questions.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Hire leaders with product development experience. Don't trust powerpoint to tell every story thoroughly. Have conversations. Ask questions. Ask those creating products how things are going, not just middle managers whose job is spinning things as great.

    Pros

    Excellent benefits - nice cafeteria

    Cons

    Company goes through a massive lay off about every 2-3 years. 200 people got laid off in July 2014 at the Tucson offices. Management fiddles with monthly sales goal to the point the sales agent is not certain what his goal is. I've seen many months when over half of the sales force does not make their goal. Thus no or very low commissions.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Leave.
