    Pros

    good work life balance, choices of different kinds of fitness lessons, free lunch from time to time, exciting innovation going on, senior people here are very helpful, you can learn a lot

    Cons

    many changes going on within the orgs lately, hope we can have a more stable working environment later on

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    it's better to have less changes in the sense of shifting people between projects, and get more innovation ideas out to customers so that we can improve fast.

    Pros

    It's a useful product, used by millions of people.

    Cons

    When it was acquired by Intuit, it was aimed to 'Mintify" the whole company; however, now it is more "Intuitified" itself. Almost all original Minters have left. Now this product is managed by a big boss from another Intuit department, with some his ex-subordinates brought in as mid-level bosses. And most product managers and engineers have worked on this product not long enough to know this product much, let alone to have good ideas.

    What they should work on: make this product easy to use, with better performance, to attract more users. Once you have 100 million users, you can do all kinds of things.

    What they actually work on: try to find new features to monetize, make features complicated to cover all use cases, move the dev team to IDC for lower cost, hesitate to improve performance at system level due to lack of capability and immediate demand. When nobody knows what's going on, "to rollback" is the easiest choice.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    It's too late.

    Pros

    You can wear lots of hats. No silos, work on what you like. Plenty of challenges to be had.

    Cons

    Really long hours. Code releases take many hours at night and frequently need several rounds of patching. Its a "work hard/play hard" type of place.
    Dumb architecture.
    Too much arrogance and not enough results on the management, e-staff, and architecture side. A bit of a joke all around.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Lose the architect(s) and the do-nothing managers. Get a plan, make it something worthwhile, and DO IT. If managers can't produce, replace them with people who can. Listen to your employee surveys. Theres no excuse for some of the leadership over the years.

    Pros

    Great technology, strong user base, awesome mobile offering, very compulsive user interface, great brand,

    Cons

    Monetization strategy not clear, too many initiatives at the same time without proper focus, too many pivots

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Need to focus on leveraging data assets

  6. Not the same Mint any more

    Pros

    One of the most used finance online application. It's easy for you to describe what you do, if you work here. And very likely for you to find who you just met is using Mint already.

    Cons

    As a part of a huge company, Intuit, Mint is not moving as fast as before. And talents are losing quickly.

    Pros

    Extremely smart team, focused, prioritizes very carefully. Growing very fast and being successful even in a tough market. Very enjoyable to build a product that's so loved by users.

    Cons

    Sometimes deadlines can be tight and the work ethic is high here - this is not a 9 to 5 job.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Continue to be transparent with information internally, as is currently done quite well. Ensure the pace is sustainable for the long-term.

    I worked at Mint.com as an intern (less than a year)

    Pros

    It felt good to be given responsibility for a major part of the next release of the software. Great amount of freedom and good mentoring.

    Cons

    Not much structure for interns had been set up yet while I was there, I'm sure the situation is changed at Intuit
