Intuit great place to work

Anonymous Employee (Former Employee)

I worked at Intuit

ProsGreat profit sharing when targets are met.

ConsLack of upwards mobility as the company is no longer a fast growth company. They spend too much money on corporate culture and have been cutting expenses dramatically.

Intuit Canada; Thd biggest sweat pit in Canada

IT Department (Current Employee)
Edmonton, AB

I have been working at Intuit full-time for more than 3 years

ProsAll the overtime you can handle with no compensation or flextime

ConsThe top 100 places to work acheivement is purely manufactured. The HR at this company is brilliant at developing a wonderful intetnal culture that only exists in propaganda.
This compant treats it people like crap. Unless you are part of the boys club at this company you are nothing. Most people who work here can only stay about 2 years. After that they are creatively let go after they show signs of burn out. If you are considering a job at Intuit walk the other way.

Advice to Senior ManagementGive up. You just dont know how to do it. Poorly run poorly represented. Stop being so cheap and stop trying to run everything on hope, prayer and a shoe string.

No, I would not recommend this company to a friend – I'm not optimistic about the outlook for this company

Excellent place to work

Software Developer (Former Employee)
Edmonton, AB

I worked at Intuit full-time for more than a year

ProsGreat Benefits - Made up for the slightly lower than average pay
Alright Salary - It was a little on the low end for comparable companies
Amazing People - Talented experienced developers and great people to work with.

ConsMundane tasks
Over Management one yet, under management the next (From tracking every 15 minutes to not knowing what is going on within your own department)
At the time, no incentives or programs in place for personal growth or tangent projects

Advice to Senior ManagementMake innovation a priority, and not just in market tested and approved areas. Take some chances on ideas that might not pan out, since you have a product that pays the bills already.

Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend

Canadian leadership is an ostrich - head in the sand!

Anonymous Employee (Current Employee)
Mississauga, ON

I have been working at Intuit full-time for more than a year

ProsGreat pay and benefits, lots of perks.

ConsCanadian leadership ignores serious morale problems and inappropriate behaviour. People are abused by managers and the CEO does nothing, instructing subordinates to fix their manager's problems themselves. With respect to people management, the Canadian CEO ignores problems and hopes they go away, while touting the Best Place to Work survey (which employees were coerced into filling out... or else...).

Advice to Senior ManagementGet some executive coaching because you don't know what you don't know!

No, I would not recommend this company to a friend – I'm not optimistic about the outlook for this company
