Pros

The company strives to be the world's most admired company, best place to work and a trusted partner for customers and the community. It is refreshing to have the priorities clear (employees first, customers second, shareholders third) and to have management that is not afraid to adjust and change strategies as the business climate changes and new opportunities arise. Every employee has the chance to have their idea and creativity impact the business. For a technologist more interested in identifying and solving customers' unmet needs than chasing the competition's feature list, Intuit is a great place to work!

Cons

Moving fast can mean not allowing a new idea to bake, or short-changing thoughtful consideration of side-effects of changes, or customer impact - or even having a poorly-executed move by one business division creating bad PR that impacts other businesses and lasts for years. The company's flagship products are so well-known and pervasive that missteps like this year's attempts by Turbotax to change the fundamental pricing model ripple throughout the other businesses.
Break-neck efforts are often expected but seldom recognized or rewarded.

Advice to Management

Slow down the reorgs, they really do impede our ability to move fast.

    Pros

    If you want work-life balance, it is a good place to work, but that is starting to change.

    Cons

    It is a very different company than it looks from the outside. It is filled with smart people, but not effective business people. The company is very internal focused and does not really "get" that the world is changing and that they DO have competition.

    Advice to Management

    Get a solid strategy, measurable objectives and hold people responsible to make it happen. Failure is easily accepted and placed under the heading of "learning". This has to stop.

    Pros

    Great company to learn from. Lots of opportunity to ask questions of others, but it also seems to be changing. Health benefits are excellent. The design for delight effort and some of the change leaders helping others learn are some of the best.

    Cons

    Communication is closing off.

    Lots of organizational changes. Most org changes seem to be about people and personality.

    Not much work life balance. Lots of managers working day and night.

    Advice to Management

    Lessen the use of the corporate words. Calling something a growth exercise when it's very clear that the company is trying to identify areas to cut costs almost insults the people. Same for investment and hiring talent. Last year's restructuring hasn't led to a new talent infusion.

    Senior management needs to make sure that their actions are matching the words.
