    I have been working at Intuit as an intern

    Pros

    Intuit really cares about their interns. Apart from spoiling us with fun social events, the Intern Summit, and lunch events with great speakers, they place a huge emphasis on learning. Whenever I present what I'm working on, I am asked what I am learning through that project. Learning first, product second. Intuit also cares about giving back. They always talk about helping small businesses around the world and I get paid for volunteering. And best of all, Inuit offers work life balance. When I leave the office a little late, like 6, the parking garage is nearly empty. That is a good sign!

    Cons

    I am a commuter and live at my parents home. Most of the interns live in corporate housing with corporate cars all for free. Sometimes I feel like I am at a disadvantage. I do not get those expensive perks and I do not know the other interns very well. Additionally I am the only intern on my team, which has been a bummer.

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

    Pros

    Amenities:
    Gym open all the time
    Cafe food is pretty good: Eat right for life meals are only $3.22 (2017).
    Volleyball court!!
    Paid Holidays!
    The Intern Summit was pretty awesome.
    Nice MacBooks and monitors. I even got a stand up desk!
    Your work affects a lot of people which is simultaneously terrifying and amazing.

    Cons

    Not sure if this is unique to Intuit, but the project I was working on had a lot of dependencies on other teams that really slowed us down. Also getting used to all of the norms when it comes to creating new services was a little bit of a drag.

    Advice to Management

    Have a clearer vision for what you expect the interns to work on. Send them a list of technologies they could be working with so that they don't go in blind.

    I have been working at Intuit full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    Great place to always find new ways to help our customers and improve processes. Customer focused, great amenities and perks. There's always something new to learn.

    Cons

    Need to keep more SMEs or will lose key knowledge / expertise that takes years to learn. Can't always expect engineers to know how to best test various tax scenarios.

    Advice to Management

    Don't discount quality analysts over quality engineers. Analysts have the lens of the customer that can't always be automated.
