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

Pros

Intuit values employees and you see that in day-to-day actions. A very caring company that pays well and offers fantastic "total rewards" including fitness reimbursement, heavily discounted healthy lunches, and generous bonus packages.

Cons

Very much a powerpoint culture. Too internal focused and not enough on the external market

Advice to Management

Ask the right questions. It's so easy to manipulate Sr. Management by presenting misleading data, so the focus becomes more on internal marketing rather than solving for the customer.

    I have been working at Intuit full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Excellent medical, dental and eye benefits. Opportunity to learn new technology. Co-workers are friendly, intelligent and helpful. Offices allow quiet work environment and increased productivity. Excellent gym and clean, pleasant campus.

    Cons

    Middle management can form wrong opinions about employees, overreact, criticize instead of giving constructive feedback, and don't ask enough questions. It can be discouraging! You don't want to speak up about anything to management or they will hold it against you. Middle management wants everyone to be a cheerleader every day and every minute. If you don't appear excited then management thinks you are not committed. Some managers micro-manage and give you a day to day and hour to hour schedule. If you are lucky you will get a manager who is not so structured. Also too many layers of management. The widely praised work-life balance varies on the project you are working on and the goals set by your manager. Not a lot of staff engineers. It takes years to reach that level.

    Advice to Management

    Employees should be able to review their managers at mid-year just as managers are able to review employees at mid-year. Email messages don't have to be so harsh and abrupt when employees are doing their best. Managers should not overreact and make rash decisions. Be fair about granting conference opportunities equally to all employees in the group.
