    Pros

    I could right a novel about how great intuit is to work for, but I'm going to keep it short and sweet with a few bullet points.
    - the people are incredibly smart and incredibly nice
    - the compensation is the best in the area
    - they truly care about their employees
    - it should be your goal to work here

    Cons

    I really am struggling to think of any... It can be quite seasonal based work so some ups and downs in workload

    Advice to Management

    Ummm whatever you are doing is working! Keep it up!

    Pros

    -Lots of perks (lunches, gym, cafe, nice building, covered parking, activities)
    -A lot of smart and hardworking people
    -Not very much micromanagement
    -A sincere desire to improve (though not necessarily the same follow through)

    Cons

    -Internal employee or Contract, you are expendable, but much less if you're management, or friends with management
    -A successful year doesn't necessarily mean more resources for your team, even if your employees were overworked
    -Some business units are treated better than others
    -Yearly turn over because of the above

    Advice to Management

    -Promoting managers more often than the employees that actually performed the work is a poor long term strategy. There's a reason why Intuit is known as great place to start out, but not necessarily stay.

    Pros

    Amazing culture and leadership
    Transforming products to the cloud, mobile, and online ecosystem
    So many internal opportunities - over 25 locations, 5 major BU's, and 10+ acquisitions in the past year or so

    Cons

    Resources and sophistication in core infrastructure systems (but, in progress and on the right path)

    Advice to Management

    Keep up the great work. Keep pushing to the middle of Conflict and Trust, and define the little j in Jerk. More data, analytics, and operational prowess.

    Pros

    Salary & benefits. Leading-edge technology experience. Work with some v. smart people. Casual work environment.

    Cons

    Bureaucratic, hierarchical, highly political. High-pressure, long hours, demanding, no let-up. Saccharin & Stepford-like culture -- criticism or dissent are not tolerated. Employees regarded as disposable.

    Advice to Management

    Treat employees like people, not highly-paid automatons. Zero tolerance for competitive internal politics. Change culture whereby employees are not afraid to dissent due to fear of retaliation.

    Pros

    Published great Culture Values, Great Benefits (401K, Stocks, Bonus, Fitness $650, great infrastructure). Employee Social Network groups.

    Cons

    Too much Politics, So many values are published as part of Intuit Culture like Innovation, Be Bold, Career Plans or Internal Mobility. These all things are driven by your Manager and Directors of your Group. Even though it's published as Intuit Culture it's actually not supported by many managers and directors at Intuit. They like you to drive employee as per there own ways and try to play politics around it.

    Advice to Management

    Please take a global and 360 degree servery for all employees for review and career path planning. Currently this is not mandatory thing for all groups at Intuit. This system is breaking the rules of Diversity and Honesty, All Employees supposed to be treated equally and all employees Manager, Director, VP reviews needs to be provided to HR team as 360 Degree from there group and officially get submitted to HR team. Currently this is not happening for so many groups and Managers are driving there groups on there ways and playing politics around it. Intuit needs to thing hard for the employees who are working more then 10 years at same company, They like to save there job and taking all technology decision to favor them self specially Manager, Director and Above level. Intuit really needs to think hard for employees who working more then 10 years and take there reviews periodically and watch about the political actions taken by those employees in the company. If company will not think hard for these kind of employee some point company will go to wrong direction and Intuit will pay lot for it. I enjoyed working at Intuit the only reason i left the company because of politics and my manager didn't allow me for Career Mobility at Intuit and also tried to spoiled by review at one time by partnering with other managers under same umbrella. Company values are great but not followed by all the groups specially Texas, San Diego, and small locations where there is still requirement to adopt Intuit Core values completely and transparency.

  8. Amazing company, great leaders, great employees, lots of mobility opportunities for high performers.

    Pros

    Great offices and decent pay. Cafeteria was good and plenty of parking. Did i mention the offices?

    Cons

    Management seemed to be out of touch with employees feelings. Older long term employees seemed to throw their weight around and have a higher opinion of their skillset than actually was true.

    Advice to Management

    none
