No opinion of CEO

Pros

1) Employees are treated with respect.
2) Annually run Employee Survey is given a lot of weight.
3) Want to learn to be politically correct? This is the place to be. Leaders always coach on this.
4) Compensation wise Intuit is in top quartile of valley companies. It is not the best, but competitive enough if you like doing what you do.

Cons

1) The leaders are failing. Messages are muddy and whole lot of infighting goes on in executive level. Some of the business leaders' existence is only known by "Great work, Team" piling on emails. It sometimes gives the impression that they have no clue about what was actually done.
2) IT is the WORST run organization ever. If the company fails tactically, this will be the reason.
3) Political correctness wins over ability to execute. People are way too scared to spell out the truth. Truthers are politely shown the door, or given enough hints so they leave.
4) The new workplace is anti-productive. We spent so much money at it during peak recession. It made Engineers lives even more pathetic.

Advice to Management

Fix the culture. Move away from so much of political correctness. As a by-product of consensus-building culture people get annoyed easily. Please act sincerely on employee survey bits rather than paying lip service. Bring in a sweeping change in IT. Do we really believe IT org is capable of taking us to the next level? The top leaders at IT have zero technical knowledge.

    Pros

    Great employees and focus on the customer is very high.
    Focus on solving the customer problem well and keeping the technology away from customer is a great experience for the customer and the engineer.

    Cons

    Technology changes impact every team. Technology changes are made seemingly on the whim and fancy of the management.

    Re orgs and focus on generating revenue makes it work more like a startup than a larger company effectively negating the reason why people join a large organization.

    Advice to Management

    The roots of the compnay have not changed but please do not let technology decision be made by people who havent written real production code for years.

    More over for a company that is focussed on customer, missing this with brining new technologies inside / outside Intuit.

    Seek talented executives who are not afraid to stand up for what is right for the company rather then what is right for their careers.
