    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

    Great pay, benefits. You'll work on challenging problems. Very customer focused. Clear vision and direction for existing and new products.

    Cons

    Some managers are unethical. A few bad apples have ruined the experience. Upper management seems unaware of the mediocre, even substandard quality of some of the mid and lower level management.

    Advice to Management

    Clean out some of that mid-management in SBG.

    I worked at Intuit full-time (More than 8 years)

    Pros

    Very good benefits and total compensation (salary, medical/other benefits, bonuses, RSUs, etc). Strong CEO.

    Cons

    Inept middle management and nepotism (I've seen this in other reviews.) I was actually told in a performance review that I needed to modify my language, as I used words that were too sophisticated (really...I thought we were educated professionals.) Recruiters from neighboring companies indicated (when I spoke to them) that they keep watch for when Intuit purges its top performers (usually the more expensive ones) nearing the end of a fiscal year. There is a clear pattern of which positions get eliminated and when they get eliminated. This is a "get-paid-for-who-you-know/likes-you" place, not a pay-for-performance organization. Disclaimer: this may vary across the company.

    Advice to Management

    Clean house...get rid of the mediocre associates that hide and cling to the "status-quo." Reward and keep those that have courage to challenge the status-quo and are trying to make Intuit excellent.

    Pros

    Great work/life balance. Good pay and benefits. Everyone I've worked with so far have been super smart and humble, makes it a great place to work!

    Cons

    Location. If you live anywhere south of the 52 it's a pretty gnarly commute. Tons of meetings and things move slowly.

    Pros

    Good Salary, Bonus, RSU, Stock Price, Health benefits

    Cons

    Leaders are good and have a great vision and mean well. But this does not get trickled down to the employees.Middle management is very toxic. Nepotism is rampant and the good employees are impacted while the bad ones are nurtured. Old timers need to be cleaned out big time. Career growth is zero.

    Pros

    Great benefits and nice site - gym is great , good discount programs - free turbo tax - brad smith is awesome

    Cons

    Unethical leader promoted into a role out of this persons capabilities- great product/project manager does not equal a good people leader

    Advice to Management

    Read the AES results and fire some long time leaders - they are holding the organization back

    I have been working at Intuit full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    The culture. Employees are treated as trusted partners. They empower you to succeed. The benefits are also great.

    Cons

    There are some employees that need a little motivation. That is discouraging at times when they're pulling you down. I rated work/life balance as three stars, but that balance is my choice. I chose to work harder than I probably have to, but that's because I care.

    Advice to Management

    Never give up at making Intuit the #1 place to work.
