    Former Employee - Group Marketing Manager in Mountain View, CA
    Former Employee - Group Marketing Manager in Mountain View, CA
    Approves of CEO

    Pros

    For the most part, REALLY smart people. A CEO who "gets" strategy and is open to other people's opinions. A strong focus on customers added to the strengths resulting from a data-driven culture (at least through 2008) made it a place where you could be proud of the work you did.

    Cons

    In 2008, Intuit acquired a small unprofitable company whose CEO happened to be the golden child of Intuit's Chairman. While this acquisition only affected the Mountain View headquarters (Intuit's Small Business Division), it had a dramatic impact on the culture. The environment rapidly shifted from a focus on rational and data-driven decision making to an environment where self-serving opinions, politics and strong-arming of employees became the norm. This shift is mainly attributable to that small company's CEO being "integrated" into Intuit's ranks despite his open contempt for Intuit's ways.

    Intuit's culture needed to change. But changing a culture to adapt to a new reality doesn't mean you need to violate the company's core values such as "it's the people", "integrity without compromise" or "think smart, move fast." Unfortunately, these values are now being trampled on a daily basis.

    Today, a much larger number of employees is looking to leave. Screaming in meetings is apparently no longer frowned upon and employees driven to tears is becoming habitual.

    Advice to Management

    Dare to call out people who are not living Intuit's values -- unless your intent is in fact to trample them, which I doubt.
    Continue your journey of change -- but not at the expense of what made Intuit the successful and growing company it had become over the past 20+ years.
    Be strong. Do not let politics and personal agendas change the course of the company. Nobody will win in the end.

    Pros

    Intuit does a great job of caring for its people and treating them with dignity and respect. When there are layoffs or people are not a great fit, they treat them in a way that is much better than other companies typically do. They invest a bunch in leadership development. They encourage people to give back to the community through allowing all employees 32 hours of paid time to serve in volunteer capacity.

    Cons

    Some times priorities can swing too much in one direction and forget to retain old best practices. 401K match seems low.

    Advice to Management

    Stay focused on serving customers well and being a company that employees and customers love.

    Re-energizes staff after all hands meeting.
    Higher executive team have understanding and good messeage.

    Cons

    - No definitve plan after acuisiions - how to integrate ... All departments work differently and go in different direction.
    - Middle tier management is not effective and doesn't have any clue what is happening. or have any control.
    - Too many re-org kills the spirit and hinders on plan set by previous manager.
    frequent Lay-offs creates fear in emplyees. do it once may once a year .. not multiple times or department by department.

    Advice to Management

    - Middle tier management needs to be smart and deliver.
    - Less re-org ... Otherwise message coming across the higher management cannot make up mind what is plan for whole year.
    - Frequent Lay-offs creates fear in employees. do it once may be once a year .. not multiple times or department by department.
    - If you have plan after Acquisition act on it and hold manager responsible for not acting on it.

    Competent leadership.
    Smart employees (some of the best talent in the bay)
    Increasing speed in dev and work cycles. They are working on reducing meeting load.
    Social and work life balance atmosphere...get called out if your working too much...work smart not long hours.

    Cons

    Communication and transparency could be a bit better.
    Meeting loads in HR are ridiculous right now. (80% meetings)
    Lots of change, lots or organization and re-organization
    Hiring new talent then letting them go 6-12 months later? Bad planning!
    Growing pains, switching from desktop to web to mobile

    Set clear communication
    It's the people! Focus on making your employees happy (if they have the right skill sets for a mobile, social, global company) and invest in them heavily!
