Disapproves of CEO

I have been working at Intuit full-time (More than 3 years)

Pros

nice coworkers. pays well if you only care about salary not stock.

Cons

Managers come from the Proctor and Gamble/General Electric mold and are allergic to an innovative software culture. They brand themselves as innovative and agile but its totally a "yes man" shop with endless meetings. They even scold engineers about their "personal brand" should they be bold enough to express an opinion. Ever been to a 40 person hour long "scrum"? Enough said.

Advice to Management

get more technical. selling dated software isn't going to work as well as selling dated laundry detergent brands.

    Approves of CEO

    I worked at Intuit full-time (More than 8 years)

    Pros

    - Performers do get recognized and the company is generous with rewards and bonuses
    - Great products - particularly turbotax; other products are trending to mediocrity
    - An excellent work-life balance
    - Excellent benefits

    Cons

    - Questionable leadership ethics - colluding with other Valley companies to block employee mobility led me to spending more time here than desired
    - Sub-cultures within the company - particularly at the Plano/Texas office run by incompetent, tenured "made-men"
    - Too many management consultants not in touch with Valley culture or technology and who do not speak English - only Powerpoint

    Advice to Management

    - If you believe in Integrity without Compromise, live by it - do not collude with eBay or Google to prevent employee departure
    - Hire technically savvy leaders with a track record of product innovation and only such managers

    I have been working at Intuit full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Opportunity to think out of the box
    Great benefits
    Casual work environment

    Cons

    Promotions and hikes are given based on politics and closeness to the manager
    Senior leaders don't listen to voice of the employee - not interested in doing the right thing by customers or employees
    Too many outages
    Smart people exiting the company
    Lack of values at this location

    Advice to Management

    Beware of senior leaders who "fluff" the numbers so they can maximize their own bonuses
    Actually listen and act on VOE from annual employee survey
