Pros

I am extremely proud of the products and services at Intuit. We produce the best business management and tax practice tools period. Only concern is the price increases over the past few years have come at a price. Our pro tax clients are frustrated.

Cons

You have to move into a non-sales role to "advance".

Advice to Management

Let your sales leaders lead your sales people instead of your corporate politics experts.

    "Terrible Place to be an Engineer"

    Approves of CEO

    Pros

    - Great work-life balance
    - Great compensation
    - Great campus
    - Great benefits
    - No problem getting the hardware/software you need to get your job done
    - Individual performance is rewarded

    Intuit really is a great place to work, unless you happen to be a Software Engineer.

    Cons

    If you are a *Product Manager*, Intuit is a fantastic place to work. Product Managers run the show at Intuit. You will have plenty of opportunities to rub elbows with the VPs and Exec team. You will get tons of recognition for work that you were "driving". You will be in a decision making role among people who want to help you grow your career.

    If you are an *Engineer*, you need to realize that you do not get a seat at the table. Product Management will extol the virtues of having Engineering in the loop, and then they will keep you in the dark. Engineers in different groups are almost forbidden to work together directly because the PM team wants to own every line of communication. Strategic decisions will be made without the counsel of the Engineering team, and then handed down with no regard for the actual effort involved. Any pessimism about the decision at that point gets you labeled as "Mr. No." Your opinion is not valued. You are a worker bee with a job that the leaders neither understand nor appreciate.

    The chasm between Product Management and Engineering is growing wider every year. The rich keep getting richer, and the poor have huddled together in the dark corners just asking to be left alone. All of the truly great visionaries have either left the company, or are working in small laboratories on small projects that have no consequence. There will not be a revolution. Intuit will just continue to unknowingly turn away its technical talent until all that remains are Engineers who want to be spoon fed requirements so they can implement them.

    Product Management will have won, though Intuit will have lost.

    "Intuit"

    Current Employee - Anonymous Employee in San Diego, CA
    Current Employee - Anonymous Employee in San Diego, CA
    Approves of CEO

    Pros

    Fair (not great) compensation package
    Flexible work hours/ many options for working remotely
    Great campus and amenities
    Some (though not enough) great leaders

    Cons

    Work life balance inadequate- long hours and high levels of stress, unrealistic expectations the norm.
    Company is middle and top heavy- too many managers making decisions and too few employees actually performing implementation or doing the actual work that directly affects the bottom line.
    Offshore outsourcing of many jobs- too many employees being outsourced under the guise of “reallocation of resources.”
    Middle and Senior Management more concerned with self-preservation rather than supporting those in non-management positions who directly contribute to recurring success.
    Management too out of touch with detailed processes and procedures- change for the sake of change rather than process improvement. Every new re-org results in a new manager or VP trying to “make their mark” via change.
    Much inequity when it comes to profit sharing. Percentages low for those in the trenches and middle and upper management reaping the majority of the benefits of stock options, non-restricted stock grants and incentive bonuses.

    Advice to Management

    Management needs to re-visit the “It’s the people” operating value that the company has espoused for years and realize that it is indeed the “people” that are making this company a success.
