    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    - Some managers are way too outdated to be managing early career people
    - Some number of architects and staff/senior engineers are way too outdated and shouldn't even be in the position given they've just stuck around Intuit long enough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.

    I have been working at Intuit full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    It's a very home-style feeling. I think that one of the hiring requirements must be that we hire genuinely nice people, (smart & nice). Intuit is always trying to up its game and has its eyes on the future. Data science, conversational UI, and platform/ecosystem thinking are where we're headed. In my role, I have the freedom to identify problems, dream up solutions, and get to go make it happen. My career path has formed around me, based on how I have worked and how I hope to contribute. Love this place!!

    Cons

    Not much relative to any other company...I think there can be at times, true opportunities to just blow up the traditional way of doing things, and just encourage speed to fail--w/o input from too many cooks. Can be a bit too much process at some times, but on the flip side, the processes have improved so much. A lot of the processes now anchor many solid ways of working.

    Advice to Management

    Sometimes, clear the path to the fastest point of failure and/or success for employees. Recognize your entrepreneurs and future leaders. Incubate brand-new ideas, products, and incentivize them internally more. Start an internal VC fund to launch internal companies that Intuit could then internally buy back ala Google.

    Pros

    Great corporate culture, impressive executive team, large company so a lot of opportunity to find a role/team to your liking

    Cons

    Some legacy mid-level managers parked in quite critical roles that tend to get in the way of action and don't move aside to let you really fulfil your potential

    Advice to Management

    Stop with the major re-organizations!

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

    Pros

    Fun events, nice coworkers, beautiful campus, delicious lunches, business casual dress code

    Cons

    My managers weren't aware of the fact that I was their intern, and thus had to plan new projects for me on the spot. Because of this, I was unable to complete the internship to my satisfaction. In addition, I was expected to be a friendly worker rather than a hard worker, and my hard work went largely unnoticed.

    Advice to Management

    Organize your intern program better. Help your interns when they want to do more.

    Pros

    I loved the high quality of my co-workers and the commitment to solving customer problems in ways that deliver delight.

    Cons

    It was sometimes difficult to move quickly because so much buy-in was needed on decisions. From what I understand, that has improved a lot.

    Advice to Management

    Thank you for the great work! As a former employee and current shareholder, I appreciate the results!
