    "Staff Software Engineer"

    Doesn't Recommend
    Positive Outlook
    Disapproves of CEO

    I have been working at Intuit full-time (More than 8 years)

    Pros

    For the various mobile products, Intuit is using latest iOS and Android technologies and trying to delight the customer with excellent products. Hiring is excellent for minorities and women.

    Cons

    Constant distractions and impediments to momentum that is very frustrating. Instead of focusing on solving critical problems, there are so many interruptions that even simple jobs take 10X the normal time. Further, enormous technical issues accumulate and that debt is rarely resolved thus contributing to future difficulties.

    I worked at Intuit full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Great pay, benefits, and work life balance

    Cons

    - Middle to upper management lacks authenticity, confidence and expertise to lead
    - Inconsistent messages delivered from CEO to VP to Group Manager levels
    - Clique-y environment; if you run in the 'wrong' circles, you can expect to be steamrolled by the opposing side
    - No innovation with products or services that are being developed
    - Poor morale with constant re-orgs and layoffs
    - Lack of transparency with middle to upper management
    - Corroding or non-existent trust with direction we are taking as a company

    Advice to Management

    Technical expertise is important, but leadership is more important. Everyone suffers when no one is bought into a changing target of expectations.

    The pay and the benefits are great! A work/life balance is encouraged.

    Advice to management: Treat your employees well. Make them feel valued.

    I worked at Intuit full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Good benefits for the area

    Cons

    A manager was inserted into our team that was the worst manager I have ever encountered. She torpedoed people's careers and upper management was notified on multiple occasions and turned a blind eye.

    Advice to Management

    Listen and act when an employee tells you there is a problem. No one contacts Human Resources unless it really becomes an issue. Do the right thing.

    Pros

    Brad Smith is the best CEO you will ever work for.

    Cons

    new management has come in from eBay and changed the culture 180 degrees. There is no desire for the team from eBay to try to fit in, instead they want to push their culture onto us, We call them the Dementors. The Dementors feed upon human happiness and thus cause depression and despair to anyone near them.

    Advice to Management

    Bring diversity into any management team. Don't let the CRO hire all her own people. They don't care about Intuit, they just want to build out the risk team for the next two years and then they will be gone, on to the next job. It is pretty clear they are not interested in the long-term viability of the company or continuing the traditions that make us such a good company.

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

    Pros

    Brad Smith - by far the best CEO that I've worked for

    Cons

    Impossible to get promoted - people that do are purely based on personal relationships and not results produced
    Lots of employees exaggerate their accomplishments - you can always frame a situation in a positive light and leave out the truth, make sure you're willing to do that or your career will stall

    Advice to Management

    Ask deeper questions of employees, don't just take their word at face value. Also make sure you're seeing who is really doing the work and performing, lots of great people being overlooked that you'll lose if you don't.

    Pros

    Financially stable and the culture pushes to thrive for better technology.

    Cons

    Very political environment. The engineers are pushed hard and the management will not support their engineers when it is needed. In addition, culture is geared toward younger engineers and slowly they push out the older engineers.

    Advice to Management

    Support your staff when is needed and not just to cover your own bases.
