    Pros

    -Everyone seemed to trust each other to get the work done that they were supposed to get done - so it didn't matter if you needed to get in at 10am instead of 8 or 9, or if you had to leave at 4pm.
    - People who work at Intuit are really nice, good-hearted people
    - I thought the work was really interesting, and people are very keen to truly help small businesses

    Cons

    - There is not the same kind of 'fire' in people to get stuff done that you would expect to find at a tech company in the Valley. It is definitely an older company with an established way of doing things.

    Advice to Management

    It's great company, with a great culture, but try to inspire and energize people.

    Pros

    emphasize on work life balance. Company offer great benefits and perks like gym incentive, life line assistance. Flexible hours and allow employee to work remotely

    Cons

    Company is not good at talent management and retaining great people. Political war at the middle management level.

    Advice to Management

    Some managers are not qualified to take on management role. They don't posses the skills or mindset. There is no forum for employees to tell the truth to the next level up. Company has great values, but not everyone executing on it.

    Pros

    Great work life balance, excellent culture of respect, solves hard problems and a business model that has produced a doubling in stock price in the last three years.

    Cons

    A lot of meetings, a focus on consensus can slow decision making on critical items, centralized QA org not as responsive as when it was independent

    Advice to Management

    Focus on mobile more and trying to get a younger overall engineering culture to keep on the cutting edge of developments in tech

    Pros

    Company treats its employees really really well. It is really relaxed place to work at. Really good if you want to raise a family.
    Easy to move within company.
    Intuit pays exceptionally well.

    Cons

    Senior management is completely clueless.
    This is basically not a technology company, it is a marketing company.
    Your co-workers are third tier. They are only there because they can't find a job at a better company.
    Not smart. Lot of politics.
    Warning: Intuit will be a blot on your resume.

    Advice to Management

    Dont feel happy because stock is doing well. You have 8% growth. The stock has a rich rich PE. It will crash now or later.

    Pros

    1. Good Benefits
    2. Flexible working hours

    Cons

    1. Worst kind of politics, fast catching up with Cisco, Ebay etc in work culture
    2. Stuffing teams with lots of contracting folks is degrading quality like anything
    3. "Keep the boss happy" is the one point agenda of all
    4. No learning in terms of tech., only patching stuff happening

    Advice to Management

    1. Don't keep shuffling your priorities on a daily basis
    2. Take AES results seriously and crack the whip on the middle-men in the management tier.
