    I have been working at Intuit full-time (More than 8 years)

    Pros

    Intuit has a set of values that it actually lives by. Also, the products Intuit makes (TurboTax and QuickBooks) help millions of people with their finances which feels great. Love having that positive impact on the world!

    Cons

    It is difficult to "climb the ladder" at Intuit. Be ready for lots of lateral opportunities, less vertical. It's a great place to learn though!

    I worked at Intuit as a contractor (More than a year)

    Pros

    Great people to work with and dedicated to achieving the end goal.

    Cons

    Contract positions for roles that have strategic needs. Having an expiration date on a role that requires at least 18 months to 2 yrs seems less then desirable.

    Advice to Management

    Reevaluate the roles that are contract and determine which are tactical and which are more strategic in nature.

    - Old school culture dependent on meetings on meetings to make decisions

    Advice to Management

    Keep injecting the company with young ambitious talent vs. old schoolers looking for a comfy job

    Pros

    Innovative company that delivers awesome products and solves big customer problems. Intuit encourages it's employees to "Be Bold" and to challenge the status quo. The environment is very entrepreneurial. Employees are rewarded for delivering innovation. Recently, I had a chance to get customer benefit coaching from Scott Cook, the founder of Intuit. How many companies offer a resource like that to employees who want coaching? Work life balance is also very important here. We work hard, but we respect family boundaries. I would recommend this company to anyone who cares about delivering awesome product experiences for internal or external customers.

    Cons

    We are still working through organizational boundaries that slow down progress, but there is a big commitment from the leadership team to become more "boundaryless" in the way we operate.

    Advice to Management

    Keep up the great work!

    Pros

    Amazing company with solid growth and incredible customer base. Lots of opportunity to learn, contribute, & expand your career.

    Cons

    Recently announced change to employee stock trading... As of Jan 1, employees will be blocked from selling Intuit stock for 7 weeks every quarter. That's 28 weeks per year!!!!!!

    Is that really necessary? Why would a company close the trading window for SEVEN weeks every quarter?!?!?! Never heard of such a loooooooooong, universal closed window.

    Advice to Management

    Explain why this change is happening and how front line employees are supposed to access their ESPP shares when they can't sell 28 weeks of the year. Offering zero interest loans??

    Pros

    Nice people. Friendly culture. Work-life balance, and culture of being normal for people to have families.

    Cons

    Can feel slow for some who want to work more. Friendly culture can feel a bit too PC at times. Career growth can be slow, can feel middle and top heavy with less room for upward mobility. Different department cultures varied.

    I worked at Intuit full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    I worked at Intuit for about four years. By far, it's one of the nicest companies I've worked for. They offer great work-life balance and excellent compensation and benefits.

    Cons

    Like any big company, Intuit suffers from a lot bureaucracy. There are lots of useless meetings where people talk and talk and talk, and nothing gets decided. When decisions get finally made, it ends up becoming a little bit of everyone's opinions (a.k.a. "achieving a shared vision"), which results in a bad outcome.

    There is a very fat middle management layer (I can say that because I was one of them). There are virtually no junior-level people, making the organizational structure an inverted pyramid. We were all getting paid way too much to do some things because we had no one junior on the team. I didn't care either way (I still get paid the same) but I thought it was a huge mismanagement of resources on the part of the company. Also, having such a big middle layer makes it impossible to get promoted.

    Advice to Management

    You have got to stop reorganizing the teams every year. It takes a few months for the new teams to settle down, set goals, and then it's time to get re-orged. When the senior management flip flops this often, employees lose confidence because you guys don't know what you're doing.

    Pros

    Environment, Culture, Customer Focus, Benefits, Stocks

    Cons

    Politics (the subtle one), Speed at which things move, Innovation in new areas

    Advice to Management

    Get your product manager and the leadership from engineering background than pure MBAs and a lot of things will probably be fixed. Your commercial and marketing innovation is great but product and technical innovation sucks...

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

    Pros

    Great benefits -- health plans, salary, bonuses, RSUs, healthy lower-cost entrees in cafeterias. Great CEO. 10% time for innovation projects encourages out-of-the-box thinking on new solutions (but not driverless cars!).

    Cons

    Company is trying to move from a company of companies to one Intuit and it's a hard transition. Layoffs, reorgs, speeches, and many powerpoint presentations don't make it easy to change. 401k match doesn't vest for two years.

    Advice to Management

    Managers are not checking in with employees on work/life balance. I didn't see improvement after the Annual Employee Survey. The company, and Brad, are great, but it's not cascading down.
