Pros

Intuit, Inc. provides business and financial management solutions for small and medium sized businesses, financial institutions, consumers, and accounting professionals primarily in the United States and Canada. These solutions are foundational for end-users and thus positions Intuit well in this difficult economic time, as evidenced by its recent positive Q2 earnings report. Intuit provides a great work environment by:
1. Clearly and consistently messaging company goals and priorities
2. Demonstrably valuing employees
3. Promoting a strong company culture centered around integrity and respect

Cons

1. Trying to be more innovative; not there yet
2. Highly consensus driven, slowing decision making

Advice to Management

Develop a separate business model that supports innovation, rather than wedging it into the processes of core product development.

    Pros

    Because software is Intuit's bread and butter, they respect and value their engineers and architects, unlike some other non-software companies. Although there is some drudgery, for the most part the work is interesting and there are opportunities to learn new things. It is a comfortable place to work and the stress level is lower than most other places I have worked. For instance, it is unusual to have to work evenings or weekends.

    Cons

    Sometimes the large company culture can be a little impersonal.

    The way each project is managed is really up to the individual managers, so your experience can be quite different, depending on what project you are on. Some are wonderful. Some are awful.

    There isn't a lot of bleeding edge work going on, if that is what you crave.

    In an effort to recruit new talent, sometimes they treat their interns better than their employees.

    Advice to Management

    Don't force people into leadership positions, if they don't want to follow that path.

    Instead of chasing high fashion trends like global, mobile, and social; expand upon your solid foundation of financial software. Do more of what you do best.

    Pros

    The benefits are very good, and the best in the area.

    Cons

    It's a very political organization. You need to kiss ass to move up in the company. Anyone who dares to disagree is seen as a trouble maker.

    Some people can be extremely unprofessional and rude. But they get away with it because they manage up well.

    Advice to Management

    You need to appreciate the diversity of talent in the company, and not want to mold everyone to be the same.
