    Approves of CEO

    Pros

    Work/life balance & benefits are great. Generally speaking, the people are nice and high-caliber in their performance. Intuit has a very strong culture, you either fit in or you're pushed out. Most folks

    Cons

    - Difficult to get promoted - very political and based on who you know.
    - Products aren't very "sexy" - financial software.
    - The company is trying to be innovative, but it's still not very clear to front line workers how the company will get there or what strategies are currently in place.
    - Intuit tends to re-org every 6 months or so. This can very difficult and disruptive, as you tend change managers, groups, and tasks. You find yourself almost working from scratch and proving yourself again.. The recent reorg in Jul '08 also had a 10% reduction in the work-force.

    Advice to Management

    Reach out, mingle with, and listen more to front line workers.
