    I worked at Intuit

    Pros

    Intuit in the US is different from the UK office but overall it's a company with great benefits, leader and is well resourced.

    Cons

    You can see more and more politics coming through in the last years and the worldwide and out-of-usa mindset isn't very well advanced and slowing down the global plans.

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

    Pros

    Many great perks i.e. contribution for pension, health, high salaries, days off for volunteering, many times to celebrate

    Cons

    High pressure, long hours, many functions outside Sales and Marketing do not receive recognitions which impacts morale.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Take everyone along the journey.

    I have been working at Intuit

    Pros

    Looking forward to coming into work everyday and not wanting to leave at night sounds very far fetched for the majority but I can honestly say that "I love my job" and I really jump out of bed every morning (maybe not exactly jump but you get where I am coming from) and look forward to the day ahead.
    I admire Intuits continuing efforts to not only, delight its customers but to also delight its staff and creating a great working environment where you as an employee feel valued.
    My office here in the UK and Intuit as a hole has a fantastic mix of people from all over the world, different cultures and backgrounds making it a buzzy, vibrant and exciting pace to work and grow.

    Cons

    The only con I can think of is that I would like the opportunity within my role to travel more (as we are a global company) to meet and network with colleges face to face rather than over a conference call. I feel there is a lot to be said for actually striking up relationships with fellow peers giving you a better grounding for collaborations in the future.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    I just think the leadership team are doing a great job and, hats off

    Pros

    Good work life balance, enjoy the team I work with, benefits are great

    Cons

    No room to grow and systems are an Achilles' Heel

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Don't wait until it's too late - listen to employees when things are faulty. Upper management should not disregard things that managers are telling them.

    Former Employee - Lacerte Technical Support Representative - Seasonal in Plano, TX (US)

    I worked at Intuit full-time (less than a year)

    Pros

    Full time. Good training. Extensive over the shoulder OJT.
    Once you learn all the systems and the software, you can control the panic you might feel when an unknown problem comes up. They are always trying to automate everything into a helpful database and/or watch you for signs of distress.

    Cons

    It does get to high stress during the tax season. This usually starts as a seasonal crew from which they will select a few to make full time offers to after season.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Considering that seasonals are evaluated at least twice and usually get bonuses (though maybe not the maximum), more should be allowed in for following seasons.
    This is not the policy now although this concept is given lip service.

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

    Pros

    Intuit not only provides great tangible benefits to its employees, but the very culture exudes employee-centric values. The management at every level sets the tone of owning your own future but does everything they can to encourage, challenge, and support you.

    Cons

    There really aren't a ton of detractors except that it can appear to be difficult to advance. In some areas it seems like there can be little movement.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Continue to hold people accountable at every level, bring out the best in everyone by helping individuals to see how they help carry the vision forward on a daily basis.

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

    Pros

    Intuit has great values and the people you work with are always willing to help. I've always had the flexibility of working from home when I need to. They have great benefits that you can utilize from charging you electric/hybrid car for free, getting a zipcar on campus for free, and reduced pricing for emergency back up day care services.

    Cons

    Very flat finance organization so it's hard to move up, the best you can you do is move around different BUs to get exposure to different leadership teams.
