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

    Pros

    Great benefits, great people, proactive management always looking to improve and deliver awesome!

    Cons

    Sometimes management forgets to simply say thanks. People still get recognition for their hard work in the long run, but sometimes a long time goes on before you feel your hard work is making a difference or is appreciated.

    Advice to Management

    Keep up the hard work, it is evident a lot of effort is made at Intuit to make sure things run the best possible, there will always room for improvement but you’re doing a great job!

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

    Pros

    Intuit is overall a great company. The pay/benefits are very good, though still below the top software companies, but the hiring bar is also significantly lower than at Google, Facebook, etc. MTV and San Diego offices have very competent teams, successful products, and manage to find ways to innovate even in a such regulated industry as tax/small business accounting. Most employees have high integrity, truly believe in company's values and respect their coworkers.

    Cons

    All pros described above are nonexistent in the Plano office due to incompetent middle management. Every time you think they've already hit the absolute low, they prove you wrong. In the past couple of years, all middle management has been hired based on their nationality and not professional expertise. This leads to a chain reaction, as the same hiring practices propagate to the lower levels as well. Plano does not hire any full time engineers directly anymore. Instead, contractors from a shady recruiting companies are hired, and if they prove themselves at the social gatherings outside of work and happy hour sessions with the management, they are retained/promoted. Coincidentally, there is no diversity among the new hires and I wonder how this does not trigger a red flag with HR. Plano middle management survives by bullying its employees to provide positive reviews on the employee survey. Managers use their 1-1 meetings to go over the individual comments in the survey trying to figure out who said what and if an employee has a concern they are encouraged to leave Intuit. Some managers push their employees to work overtime, while they themselves abuse the vacation/work from home policies to the greatest possible extent, taking multiple weeks off a few times during the same year or "working" from other countries while being offline the entire time. Credit is taken from people who work hard without a second thought. Managers take credit for the work which was done even before they joined Intuit. If somebody raises a concern, they are involuntarily pushed to other teams or forced to leave the company due to frustration. All of the above negates the positive things in Plano which still has a number of very competent people who are unfortunately individual contributors without much say.

    Advice to Management

    Get rid of Plano middle management excluding few exceptions and hire new technical leadership which follows the current industry trends.

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

    Pros

    Perhaps one of the earliest things you may notice is that Intuit tends to hire people that match their values. You get to work with talented people who are not only amazing at their field, but are good people to work with. They hire people who not only are bold and awesome but are team-oriented. They would rather hire 5 engineers who are hard-working and are great to work with than 1 genius who's a jerk and brings people around him down. You can ask a question to people around you and they are more than willing to drop what they are doing to help you.

    Cons

    Internally teams may sometimes get a bit possessive of their tech sometimes to the detriment of progress at an org level.

    Advice to Management

    My advice to management would be keep doing amazing stuff. Hold true to the values set by the company because it's easy to let go of those things and let culture or past experiences take over during crunch time.
