    I have been working at Intuit as a contractor (less than an year)

    Pros

    Warner center location: The culture is very comfortable. The people are so so friendly! Def not a cold corporate environment. The diversity is also amazing, i haven't encountered this in any other workplace so it is very refreshing. Everyone is willing to help you at any moment in whatever way they can. The office spaces are very clean. There is unlimited coffee, tea, sugar, creamer, cups, etc. in the break-rooms. The break rooms are great. Each floor has its own TV room with sofas, a kitchen area, and game room with more TV's. The games are different on each floor, so far I've seen a Foosball table, ping pong table and pool table. As if the main break-room isn't enough, there are multiple quasi-break-rooms for your convenience. Downstairs you have a full gym, cafeteria and Starbucks. The cafeteria has really good food at low cost, serving breakfast and lunch, just for the employees. They also have a healthy menu to cater to the more health conscious crowd. The company always finds an excuse to cater free food for their employees just to make their day better. There are vending machines everywhere with a large selection of snacks, drinks and sandwiches. Those of you who like to take your time in the bathroom, you've found your nirvana! There is a good chance this is why Intuit is one of the best places to work in the country. The building looks awesome from the outside so just walking up to it will brighten up anyone's day. The parking is never a problem, there are outdoor lots and a structure which is covered if you don't want to leave your car out in the Cali heat.

    Cons

    No real downside as long as you know what you're getting yourself into. Professionally speaking, I've noticed a lack of upward mobility. To some people the fact that you're doing the same work may get monotonous after a while but that's why you have to enjoy your work.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    I like my managers, they're very nice people. Getting to know the people you manage, on a more personal level, isn't such a bad thing.

    I have been working at Intuit full-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    Decent benefits too cheap to cover a working spouse

    Cons

    Yearly layoffs, bad management. micro managers, no steady leadership. After 4 years I have not grown and it's not for the lack of trying, learning and going above and beyond. It's a not what you know but who know division. A college graduate reporting to a high school drop out with NO previous management experience.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Get out of the payment industry. We all know you are shuttering the LA office speed up the process.
