Pros

Great benefits and very nice people. Even newer people are made to feel welcome. You can get time off to do volunteer work.

Cons

It is a very risk averse and political environment. This is not a place that is on the cutting edge of technology.

Advice to Management

Let's take some risks and try some new technologies. The not-invented-here mentality prevents Intuit from doing some really great things.

    Pros

    Mint has lots of potential to grow, innovate and dominate. It still has a great talent in engineering and operations. And it has a head start against competition.

    Cons

    The executive staff at Mint focussed on exposing the product to Canada but was not ready to deal with the code complexities it created, ROI was not worth it. They totally missed the significance of Mobile and where ill-prepared when start-ups challenged them in that space. The executive strategy of turning features out fast continues to grow users but ignors quality issues that fail to convert users to active users. The executive staff has not resolved the talent drain issue resulting from the aquisition by Intuit. It seems that the the executive staff brought over from the Mint acquisition was not up to the challenge and the inside promotions to replace the existing executives was premature..

    Advice to Management

    Hiring new executive staff from external sources who have been through a few acquisitions, with experience in Mobile and customer engagement.
