Pros

Intuit really cares about its employees. Brad Smith is an incredibly inspiring CEO. I would consider most of Brad's staff to be quite strong and even trending stronger over the past 6 months. Most of the less strong senior leaders have moved on. Intuit has among the best leadership training programs for up and coming leaders of any software company in the world. It is modeled on GE's leadership training.

Cons

Intuit wants to be a premier innovative growth company, but we haven't figured out how to drive new growth through innovation. While Intuit is a top software company, it just doesn't draw the talent that Apple and Google draw

Advice to Management

We need to test multiple competing approaches to building new business and business models

    Pros

    Intuit is breaking out of its own mold to provide financial software and is going after new ways to solve customers' problems worldwide. So there is a lot of creative opportunity here and role opportunity now and on the horizon. The company uses its employees as a rich source of ideas and information - hosting idea jams, innovation prizes and embracing a 'fail fast to succeed big approach'. They have all the goodies too - my favorite benefits are 3 paid days per year to volunteer and support (from my manager and with technology resources) to work part time from home. Our CEO is relatively new (about a year) and is doing really excellent work. He's a great role model in that he openly talks about his successes and failures, he's got great business acumen and I believe he's authentic. And I like who he hires on his exec staff. Overall, super good experience here.

    Cons

    Corporate in general feels like running a sprint with no finish line.

    Advice to Management

    Stop the org changes!

    Pros

    Really smart people who want to create great products for customers and who are dedicated to doing a great job. Great managers who care about the people who report to them. Real concern for work-life balance means hours are usually flexible to allow for family and personal needs as long as the work gets done. Rigorous review processes mean there is good visibility for a job well-done and opportunity for internal movement (varies by group).

    Cons

    Internal communication is poor, so changes in senior level goals and objectives take a while to work down through the organization. This also means different groups frequently have differing and conflicting priorities. Decision-making can be slow, painful and open to interpretation. In the past few years Intuit has lost its focus on understanding customers and really listening to what they want/need. Management is more tactical than strategic.

    Advice to Management

    Develop a real strategy and ensure it is communicated effectively through the organization. Make the hard calls and stick to them.
