Disapproves of CEO

I worked at Intuit full-time (More than 5 years)

Pros

-- Good benefits
-- For people willing to go the extra mile, the company rewards them appropriately

Cons

-- Not challenging enough technically
-- Slow moving company. Constant re-orgs, scraping of projects happen all the time which shows muddled thinking by leaders

Advice to Management

Once you make a decision stick to it for a long enough time to show results. Don't chicken out too soon.

    I have been working at Intuit full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Great mission; pockets of engineering talent; great customer orientation

    Cons

    Employee entitlement is very entrenched; senior managers are not technical and therefore value form (presentation skills) over content (results)

    Advice to Management

    Raise the engineering talent level, including (and most importantly) at the higher ranks

    I worked at Intuit as an intern (Less than a year)

    Pros

    -Great intern community with a lot of support. You are set up with several mentors during the internship and everyone from the HR is really understanding and easy to work with.
    -You are also housed with the other interns so you have a great opportunity to make a lot of close friends.
    -Relocation is really easy and completely covered. Transportation to work was also covered.
    -Tons of opportunities to network within the company and learn about other projects.
    -For engineering specifically, they do a great job of adding you to a team where you'll be able to focus on what you are actually interested in learning more about. You're usually put on an AGILE team and get to be part of actual development projects.

    Cons

    -The commute from housing to work can be long (there is a shuttle but it took about an hour to get to the office)
    -There is an intern project, which is somewhat loosely organized and not well-defined until late in the internship, so doing implementation isn't possible. Good opportunity to learn about business pitches though.

    Advice to Management

    Had a great experience, everyone was really approachable and enthusiastic to offer resources and advice.
