I have been working at Intuit

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 ManagementAdvice

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 ManagementAdvice

    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

    Pros

    Work Life Balance, Stable Company.

    Cons

    Politics. Clueless pointy-haired managers and architects who hide their incompetence behind "process" and politics.

    There are good technical folks in the engineering ranks who do a great job but as a product manager it is very difficult to get things done because the numskulls in architecture and middle-management can neither lead, support or get-out-of-the-way.

    A side-effect of clueless leadership is that they have no idea how to evaluate risk and take on challenges. As a result, there is a CYA mindset, and politics is winning over competence.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    You think Merlin is dead? The cancer is back and it is called Atlas. You have great engineering talent but the managers are completely clueless, and the architects are taking you down the hole again. Their roadmap is a joke - I have spoken to other people in the program and they admit in private that it is not going well - but the current leadership is more interested in keeping the program alive than in doing the right thing to fix it.
