One of the few good place to work with in SD

Software Engineer (Current Employee)
San Diego, CA

I have been working at Intuit full-time for more than 5 years

Proscomfy working environment
awesome peers to work with
impressed on how much resources/investment they put in quality here

ConsYou really have to have a very good manager to fight promotion for you here. It's quite independent on what or how much you had worked hard on. Seems to heavily depend on whether your manager has strong say or not, that said, no fair promotion game =(

Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend – I'm optimistic about the outlook for this company

Nice if you like a paycheck, not recommended if you want to help build a product that makes a difference

Senior Software QA Engineer (Current Employee)
San Diego, CA

I have been working at Intuit full-time for more than 5 years

ProsThey pay well and have good benefits

ConsAt one time, the culture was all about doing right by the customer. Sadly that's not case today. Today's it's all about the bottom line and navigating office politics.

To make worse, it's difficult to build a working relationship with your boss, as they love to restructure the organization every 12-18 months. Even if you are doing the same job, you likely won't have the same boss at the end of the year that started with. I personally had 15 different bosses over 6.5 years.

Advice to Senior ManagementSenior management makes a lot of promises that it rarely delivers on.

No, I would not recommend this company to a friend

Internship at Intuit

Software Engineer Intern (Former Employee)
San Diego, CA

I worked at Intuit as an intern for less than a year

ProsI really like the environment, they treat interns as a full time employees. The responsibilities are pretty close to what a full time engineer would do only with a little more supervision from your manager. We got 10% of our time to work on innovative ideas which can convert into a real projects

ConsThere are not really challenges here. It was too short the time I worked during the summer to see real cons.

A worthwhile opportunity

Software Engineer (Former Employee)
San Diego, CA

I worked at Intuit full-time for more than 5 years

ProsGood pay, opportunity to learn, good work / life balance, good career management

ConsIt is a corporate environment so you get some of the downsides that go with that, like bureaucracy

Advice to Senior ManagementListen to your people at the bottom, the ones who do the work. The middle layer of management does not always represent the people below them.
