    I worked at Intuit full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Intuit has an incredible culture. They believe strongly in ownership and autonomy for all their Product Managers (and employees!). It is incredible the extent to which managers invest in talent and really go out of their way to think about your career for you. They help you figure out what is important to you and what you want to learn and help provide projects that enable you to master the skills that are important to you.

    Cons

    Occasionally it moves a bit slow. There are a lot of moving parts and it is a very bottoms up culture, so you have a lot of ownership but are responsible for clearing your own path to execution by coordinating with other teams. The company has moved in a big way towards more speed and agility over the past 18 months, starting before I left the company and continuing.

    Advice to Management

    Keep it up! The company is an incredible place to work and that is felt across the many organizations. Always appreciate the open communication and dialogue.

    Political, ridiculous power struggles that lead to nowhere except for good people getting upset and leaving.

    Cannot think of one con.

    Pros

    Strong company culture that emphasizes respect, collaboration, and innovation. Market leading benefits. Great work-life balance. Very skilled and helpful colleagues. Emphasis on employee development and long-term career growth. Fantastic ESPP program.

    Cons

    Vacation policy is just average (15 days to start and it takes a long time of service to get more). Work from home policy is fairly flexible but varies by manager/department. Very hierarchical level system with large emphasis on higher levels (director and above) and chain-of-command style of thinking.

    Advice to Management

    Let employees negotiate for more vacation (e.g. giving up some compensation).

    Pros

    Leadership of Brad Smith
    Truly make a difference in the world by helping small businesses

    Cons

    Too much tops down management
    Recognition and promotion paths are confusing and can be unfair at times
    Recognition is completely dependent on what projects you work on and your manager

    Advice to Management

    Follow Brad Smith's principles of "employees first" in the org chain below. Seems like it never follows through as we go down the chain.

    Pros

    What sets Intuit apart is its innovation capabilities that is driven from within the org. Employees really matter at this company and leadership listens!

    Cons

    When it’s time to move people around, give them a chance to bid on the projects they want to work on. Motivation will help to drive team performance.

    Advice to Management

    When our vision changed, the work hasn’t. We need to re-prioritize work that closely aligns with our mission across all work streams.

    Pros

    Fantastic culture and work/life balance, great overall comp, nice facilities. Management seems very focused on doing good (providing economic prosperity) and not just making money. They have stated values and try hard to live by them. They are also very invested in people.

    Cons

    I have heard that the seasonality of TurboTax makes working on that product more difficult from a lifestyle perspective than other products.
