    Great place to work. Communication and vision is clear. Benefits are outstanding at head quarters and pay was above market

    A lot of back stabbing among upper managers. Departments rewarded for meeting departmental goals even if not in the best interest of company

    Drive consistant goals down to department level.

    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.

    Compensation is good (Not excellent)
    Re-energizes staff after all hands meeting.
    Higher executive team have understanding and good messeage.

    Cons

    - Information/control to next level management is lacking.
    - 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.

    Pros

    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

    Advice to Management

    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!

    Doesn't Recommend
    Disapproves of CEO

    Pros

    * Good compensation packages
    * Good benefits
    * Nice work/life balance
    * Focus on team work
    * Big focus on the customer

    Cons

    * Intuit has changed dramatically since the new CEO came on board. All you see are layoffs and politics.
    * Sr. leadership team is incompetent. Strategies keep changing and constant reorganizations are not productive.
    * New CEO talks about innovation, but don't see any new products or services in the market.

    Advice to Management

    Hold Sr. leadership team accountable for results.
    Ensure more integrity with communication. Don't say Intuit is growing while laying people off every month.
    Stop all the politics and focus on innovation.
