    Pros

    Company is focused on customers. Company has become faster moving in the last few years. You can see this in the products which are now looking much more modern

    Cons

    Lots of cooks in the kitchen. Decision making is improving but still can take too long. Lots of time spent in meetings

    I have been working at Intuit full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Great culture, benefits package continues to innovate and improve, 30+ year old start up that is a bit more mature than the younger tech companies in SF and the valley. People have families here and respect personal commitments outside of work. Pushing forward and innovating with machine learning and artificial intelligence. The software helps individuals manage and champion their financial lives

    Cons

    Intuit has products that are in highly regulated industries, and its ability to operate and innovate quickly is hampered by industry and state and federal government red tape. Also, Intuit is still working to make its brand more well known, and the general public still don't know us by the name Intuit, but more by our products.

    Advice to Management

    be transparent, don't be afraid of taking risks by entering new spaces.

    Pros

    Brad Smith is the best CEO you will ever work for.

    Cons

    new management has come in from eBay and changed the culture 180 degrees. There is no desire for the team from eBay to try to fit in, instead they want to push their culture onto us, We call them the Dementors. The Dementors feed upon human happiness and thus cause depression and despair to anyone near them.

    Advice to Management

    Bring diversity into any management team. Don't let the CRO hire all her own people. They don't care about Intuit, they just want to build out the risk team for the next two years and then they will be gone, on to the next job. It is pretty clear they are not interested in the long-term viability of the company or continuing the traditions that make us such a good company.

    Pros

    As a visual designer, i appreciate to commitment to design here at Intuit. There are alumni from important design companies (IDEO) in leadership positions here. It shows in the culture, from the approach to problem solving to the support for great design. Design is institutionalized with programs like "Design for Delight" and "Customer Inspired Design".
    I am also inspired by the company's commitment to our customers. Their success is at the center of all product development here, and it shows in the culture.

    Cons

    Intuit is a fairly large company, so it has trouble moving fast. That said, it's big enough to offer work/life balance. It's great to have team-mates who can cover for me so i can take a vacation.
