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

    Pros

    - Great culture, Brad Smith is arguably one of the best CEOs and most of the company falls in line
    - More on the ethical side of Silicon Valley
    - Hard problems to solve in the space
    - Working with some of the best people you possibly can, and everyone is really helpful and close relationally speaking.
    - Very open culture and leaders are willing to listen.
    - Lots of mobility if you have the relationships in the company.
    - Overall benefits are fantastic
    - Work/life balance is probably the best I have seen but it does depend on your team

    Cons

    - Infighting on the especially SVP/VP level is ridiculous at times and trickles down to manager/director level
    - Too much emphasis on "priorities" and currying favor through that
    - Some managers are way too outdated to be managing early career people
    - Some number of architects and staff/senior engineers are way too outdated and shouldn't even be in the position given they've just stuck around Intuit long enough
    - Ridiculous amount of seeing a shiny penny and every person jumping on it
    - Large number of PMs are technically inept, UX/XD demands unicorns, and engineers don't have any business sense
    - Pay is slightly below average... well depends on which year and whether or not you are aware of the payscale Intuit refuses to release internally.

    Advice to Management

    - MOVE FASTER. it's been the biggest issue plaguing the company and innovation being a literal joke in the company.
    - REPRIMAND PEOPLE. too many people run around unchecked for horrible decisions.
    - HIRE BETTER. average people only hire average people. Top people hire top people.
