Pros

Work/life balance & benefits are great. Generally speaking, the people are nice and high-caliber in their performance. Intuit has a very strong culture, you either fit in or you're pushed out. Most folks

Cons

- Difficult to get promoted - very political and based on who you know.
- Products aren't very "sexy" - financial software.
- The company is trying to be innovative, but it's still not very clear to front line workers how the company will get there or what strategies are currently in place.
- Intuit tends to re-org every 6 months or so. This can very difficult and disruptive, as you tend change managers, groups, and tasks. You find yourself almost working from scratch and proving yourself again.. The recent reorg in Jul '08 also had a 10% reduction in the work-force.

Advice to Management

Reach out, mingle with, and listen more to front line workers.

    Pros

    Work-Life Balance. Industry-leader in all three product lines (personal finance, small business finance, and tax). Very strong company that will survive the downturn. Many opportunities for mobility. Good location in the South Bay.

    Cons

    - Older workforce that is more in the baby/buying house stage in their life, not as many young people.
    - I would prefer to live/work in San Francisco. Intuit has an office in SF, but only about 100 employees work there.

    Advice to Management

    Start hiring and rewarding younger employees for their innovative thinking and work ethic. They will be able to help the company move more quickly to next-gen offerings

  2. Great Company, Great People... Just a little lost at the top...

    Pros

    Great People that always go above and beyond.

    Cons

    Management believes the only way to change it to turn it all up side down...

    Advice to Management

    Stop acting like it is some private club, start talking to employees and not at them.
