Pros

Amazing benefits and great pay
Provides 1 week of paid time per year to focus on community work
CEO (Brad Smith) is smart, genuine, and provides clear direction for business
Diverse workforce; people are treated as equals regardless of gender, race, sexual orientation, etc.
Customer feedback is highly regarded and used to drive decisions
Employees are treated with respect (with a few exceptions)

Cons

Innovation and growth are near-impossible since BI support is stretched unbearably thin
Very few positions are filled from within - regardless of internal talent
Employees are rewarded or hired based on cronyism and the ability to generate PowerPoint presentations rather than on producing actual results
Work-life balance is preached, but not practiced
Too many meetings

Advice to Management

Use employee feedback to drive change, not just to take a pulse
Tools for career development need to be subsidized by actual career growth opportunities
Spend less money on travel and more money in BI
Reward and recognize employees based on results and job performance

    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.


  2. "Mint's division of Intuit is being mis-managed and losing talent and opportunities to capitalize"

    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.
