    I worked at Intuit

    Pros

    Great work/life balance, great comp and benefits, onsite fitness center plus $650 fitness reimbursement, $300 wellness dollars for tracking activity, excellent health, vision, dental, life, great 401K match, 4 days per year for volunteer work, challenging work, exposure to latest methodologies, ability to work with all levels within, ability to work directly with customers

    Cons

    Frequent reorgs resulting never feeling secure and for an "every man for himself culture", difficult to implement change even with "shared vision", VERY political, pressure to sugar coat in survey situations

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Commit to a plan and don't be so quick to "pivot"
    Sr Leaders need to fully endorse and support execution of initiatives (don't just talk the talk, but walk the walk), especially Big Bets
    Limit layoffs to no more than once per year - two or three times per year does not make for a "best place to work" culture that you want to maintain.

    I worked at Intuit full-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    > Work-Life balance
    > Benefits
    > Great People

    Cons

    > Starting stage: Interns get higher position just after the internship, Graduates don't get promoted even after giving strong performance for 1-2 years
    > Great transparency: Managers directly tell you to please before higher Engineers/other Managers to get promotion even if you don't work with them
    > No Learning
    > Only show-off works, not real work (Power points)
    > Re-org happens every 6 months, then reshuffle happens frequently in a team, your manager gets changed at every Re-org/reshuffle, Every time try to understand styles of different managers, different rules for promotion, different types of pleasing based on managers
    > You don't give correct reasons from the management behind not getting promoted
    > You need to ask for promotion even after giving consistent strong performances, then they will plan; that also depends on style of manager
    > Talk loud, Do nothing

    I have been working at Intuit

    Pros

    Worked for content marketing.

    1. Pays well, if you show up to work you're considered a good employee.
    2. People are nice and usually always welcoming no matter what department you're in
    3. Well stocked kitchens
    4. Helpful internal work sources
    5. I believe the company as a whole wants to help others and they're heading into a positive direction

    Cons

    1. Extremely silo'd company that forces multiple people to do simple tasks that one person can do. It takes weeks to start actual execution on projects because of the bureaucracy and availability of other people you need to loop in. Other times people will completely forget about entire projects and they get lost.

    2. Lack of onboarding processes and teaching "ways of doing things" of Intuit (meeting conferences, Powerpoint templates, email etc.)

    3. Sometimes you'll have no work, and other times you'll be looped into an existing email thread with no heads-up or review of work that needs to be done by higher management.

    4. I can't believe how many people gossip at this company without caring who overhears them. You're sitting within multiple departments and it can be uncomfortable.

    5. It's very easy for people to lose focus of the big picture and what's happening outside of Intuit. There is very little attention paid to outside research and innovation.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Have more ways for lower management to reach out and seek help and advice.

    I worked at Intuit

    Pros

    good benefit but not so good anymore; some talented people

    Cons

    too much focus on bottom line has put the company in a spin & instability, constant change which makes the efforts inefficient; outsourcing which in the long term does not pay off

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Put right people in place; maintain the ethics you are advertising; pay more attention to real social responsibilities in real action rather than in superficial "kodak moment" notion

    I worked at Intuit full-time (more than a year)

    Pros

    The culture and people at Intuit were great. I worked in the payroll department working with small business. Most co-workers were helpful and fun to be around. Very good work-life balance and the company provided time to volunteer.

    Cons

    Lots of changes, not always for the best. Lots of politics and limited opportunities for advancement besides horizontal position changes.

    Pros

    Not a lot of Pros. Schedule is flexible and some of the people there are nice.

    Cons

    Everything? There was absolutely no training. Tons of lay offs! Poor management, everyone is severely overworked, and lower positions are under paid.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Get some management? Train your people if you expect them to be experts. Take care of your employees!

    Pros

    Love the training and on-going improvement. Very polite people.

    Cons

    Don't get too comfortable. CEO philosophy is to keep everyone slightly nervous about losing their job. Constant streamlining and reshuffling are draining on energy. Expect upheaval every 6 months or so.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Growing through acquisition is more effective than internal innovation efforts that are not supported.

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

    Pros

    little to no expectations from management

    Cons

    The company is so fragmented due to Intuit buying smaller startups and not folding them into the corporate culture. Accomplishing anything inter-departmental task is comparable to herding cats.

    Great place to earn a paycheck, no upward mobility and little innovation happening

    Former Employee - Product Manager in Mountain View, CA
    Former Employee - Product Manager in Mountain View, CA

    I worked at Intuit full-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    I was a Product Manager at Intuit for 3+ years focused on small business solutions. Intuit's a great place to earn a paycheck - it's "stable", there's plenty of nice people, and you'll have work / life balance which is worth it's weight in gold.

    Cons

    Intuit doesn't live up to their values.

    1) They don't value their employees - Intuit lays people off through "re-orgs" every 9 months. It's great because you get a new job every so often (if you're not on the hit list) but it's an absolute morale killer. I was lucky and got by but it leaves you with a bitter taste in your mouth. What a terrible business environment!
    2) "Leadership" (Directors and above) are totally out of touch with reality - they're unfamiliar with their products and have no clue what small businesses are about. Most have been in the corporate world their whole life so they can't relate.
    3) Little innovation happening - they talk a big game here but don't deliver. In fact staying the course and building relationships with a few key people is the way to have a long career at Intuit.
    4) Intuit's more focused on making money than on helping small businesses (my opinion and I'll leave it at that)
    5) Complacent leaders that can't think for themselves out of fear of #1. If they rock the boat (it's a nice boat), they will be on the hit list the next time around.
    6) Intuit loves PowerPoint...
