    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.

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

    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.
