Pros

Work-Life Balance. Industry-leader in all three product lines (personal finance, small business finance, and tax). Very strong company that will survive the downturn. Many opportunities for mobility. Good location in the South Bay.

Cons

- Older workforce that is more in the baby/buying house stage in their life, not as many young people.
- I would prefer to live/work in San Francisco. Intuit has an office in SF, but only about 100 employees work there.

Advice to Management

Start hiring and rewarding younger employees for their innovative thinking and work ethic. They will be able to help the company move more quickly to next-gen offerings

    Pros

    Salary, benefits are excellent. Brad Smith is a phenomenal and aspirational leader. Everyone at Intuit speaks the same language and knows what is expected of them. The operating values are referenced and talked about every day...they are truly part of working at Intuit and haven't changed in over 10 years.

    Cons

    Wide variance in how managers work/support teams. Many managers interpret the operating values in ways that don't support a good work/life balance. Intuit also doesn't know how to provide growth opportunities or career advancement opportunities after Sr. Manager roles, as proven by the appointment of a VP, Career growth and advancement. Managers don't want to "give up" good people, so they make it practically impossible for people to move cross funtionally or to different business areas.

    Advice to Management

    You need to get everyone on board to reflect your values. You preach the operating values at every turn, but allow and even worse, promote, Sr. leaders that do not model those values.

    Pros

    Work/life balance is reasonable at Intuit. There are many opportunities for change for the person who can stay long enough to accomplish them. Compensation package was pretty good. Many of the people are great, but aren't in the right roles.

    Cons

    The culture is bizarre. It is very difficult to figure out, especially if you've come from another large company, or one that understands process and project management. Senior leadership knows this and has failed to address, in fact they seem to like it that way. Intuit is completely incapable of moving the next level. They are stuck in a rut of incremental change, no, not a rut - a cycle. They never seem to make it to the next level.

    Advice to Management

    Overhaul senior and middle management. Bring in new blood. Let go of the old ways. Wesabe, Freshbooks - they aren't Microsoft. Just because you beat out "MS Money" and "Small Business Accounting" doesn't mean you can beat out the new guys. Intuit and Microsoft have some similar problems; these guys are young, hungry and flexible, unlike you. I would have stayed if it weren't for the poor choices by middle and senior management.
