    Pros

    1) Fabulous work life balance. Unlike some other bay area sweat shops (consumer electronic firms, etc) Intuit respects employee work life balance. You can work from home on any day of the week, take time off, etc. The lights in most buildings go off at 6: 00 pm. indicative of a healthy balance of work and personal life.
    2) Great compensation. For the same compensation structure, you would have to jump 2-3 levels at other firms. A classic example is that Snr. PMs at Intuit usually make the same as Directors at comparable payment firms.
    3) Emphasis on ethics
    4) Openness of management. You can have meetings with exec. management as freely as with anyone else in the company.
    5) Ability to learn. You get to work on many things while at Intuit and hone your skill sets.

    Cons

    1) Career growth. Intuit is very slow to promote and you can be at the same position for 5-10 years with no promotions.
    2) Hinders innovation. Intuit has grown by inorganic innovation and acquisitions (Mint, Digital Insight, Homestead, etc). Hence it is very hard to be innovative within the company.

    Pros

    The founder Scott Cook is still awesome, very active and continually sets the tone of the company to focus on delighting customers and driving innovation. The engineering was (may still be) world class and the focus on customer understanding is second to none. The scale of technical challenges at Intuit is exciting...think about what it takes to assure turbotax is working the night before tax day or the challenges of having a product set as diverse as QuickBooks, Quicken, payroll, tax (pro and consumer), healthcare etc. and what it takes to make them all work together for the user, the enterprise backend and the employee wanting or needing to work on more than one offering.

    Cons

    In the last 2 years current employees have voiced concern over a growing trend to outsource more engineering work overseas. Of course Intuit needs to compete globally so Intuit needs to source globally. But working and managing outsourced teams is tough and will not get you the development velocity and rapid execution of small scrum teams located in the same office so expect some frustration and process changes when your "US attrition" gets back filled in India.

    Advice to Management

    Workplace.intuit.com is too QuickBooks centric. Small businesses are worried about retaining and acquiring new customers (data from Intuit) ... yet the number #1 reason for "why workplace?" the "...apps can work with QuickBooks".

    Pros

    The people are committed to finding results that will have an impact in the marketplace. It's a naturally energetic environment.

    Cons

    The chances for career growth seem limited. It takes a person who clearly knows what they want to make career advancement happen.

    Advice to Management

    Management does a good job of inspiring. However, the track to advancement is not clear cut. It makes long-term career opportunity seem nebulous.

    Pros

    Good work life balance, competitive benefits, intelligent employees, short commute, opportunities for paid community service, on-site cafeteria, team-building events, challenging work

    Cons

    Senior leadership is sometimes too vague about their goals, tend to layoff when times get tough, advancement opportunities limited depending on your role, stock grants are small for the 'little' people

    Advice to Management

    Look to your employees more for better insight to products/ideas; Intuit has many bright people that are creative and have a lot to offer senior management

    Pros

    - Compensation is good
    - Benefits are good
    - Work-life balance
    - Important customer problems are being solved
    - Recognized name and brands

    Cons

    You are going to be happy at Intuit if you are a robot who spits out the latest buzz words and does as she is told. if you express a different opinion, you are black listed. Real results are not valued, you are evaluated based on your level of obedience.

    Advice to Management

    Open your eyes and recognize what is important - free thought that moves the company forward or corporate spin by middle management.
