    Pros

    Intuit has great benefit, they do 125% match for 401K, good perks like gym, a lot of free food, they're really good at business. Intuit provides tons of opportunity you can study new technology

    A lot of shift-change in the company, they're good at business but not good at technical. May not be good for a technical person.

    Advice to Management

    Keep doing on you business, don't make Intuit as an Indian company because it's dominated by Indian people, diversity is important.

    Pros

    Some orgs (e.g. CTG) do a great job growing their developments. Great events. For most, great salaries.

    Cons

    PI and CTO in great decline. Bad organizational decisions in CTO and Ebay nepotism has lead to an exodus of great talent. Lack of good AWS direction.

    Advice to Management

    If you see entire groups up and quit and move together to Terradata, take notice. If you see senior people with 5-10+ years leave despite top performance marks, take notice.

    Pros

    good health benefits and ok compensation

    Cons

    Power of politics. managers not able to identify who is really doing good work and who is talking a lot and throwing up because they do not check at the ground level as they are technically incapable. They believe on talks not on work. full of favoritism, partiality and politics. Managers are neither technical nor good at people management. Mainly those managers who are here for long time. They are completely out dated and showing their power to the new people and ragging them. Because they think nothing can happen to them even if engineers or developers complain about them. And this is true. developers get impacted if they raise their voice or they speak about the truth. Managers are always safe.

    Advice to Management

    Everything is manager's hand. That has to be changed. One person career growth should not be decided by manager's perception. Because managers are not looking at ground level. They just believing on talks not on actual work. That way, good people will leave the company and bad people will stay here. Skip skip level meeting should happen. Follow google culture.
