    I am very proud to work for Intuit

    Anonymous Employee (Current Employee)

    ProsLooking 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.

    ConsThe 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.

    The company takes care of it's employees

    Senior Software Engineer (Current Employee) Mountain View, CA (US)

    Pros- Good work-life balance. If you come from a start up to Intuit you will be incredibly relaxed
    - There are smart people at intuit. As with any big company you need to hunt to find them but there are some excellent people to work with
    - Culture is good. People are generally really nice and open to helping each other out
    - Intuit monopolizes it's market. yay

    Cons- Personal growth is slow
    - There is "title inflation" ie a senior engineer may or may not actually be senior

    Advice to Senior ManagementPay is on par with other tech companies. pay MORE to entice the best in the bay.

    Awesome place to work!

    Anonymous Employee (Current Employee) Mountain View, CA (US)

    ProsThe company takes care of its employees. They are customer focused and give opportunities to employees to share there innovative thoughts on product development or new product development.

    ConsIt is a fast paced environment. If you are accustomed to working with deadlines and working the hours it takes to meet those deadlines, this is a fit for you. If not, you will struggle keeping up with the workload.

    Advice to Senior ManagementConsider more opportunities to work remotely or from home. The company would then truly reduce the carbon footprint and work-life balance. When considered remote employees, the expectations should be that you don't expect them to be in the office everyday and jabber connections are adequate to communicate so long as the work is aligned and at a high caliber.

    ProsPeople care about you and the work that you put on the table.
    They push you to be innovative inside and outside the company.
    They value work life balance and have great befits

    ConsDepending on where you sit in the company sometimes the org changes have a big impact

    Fun and friendly atmosphere.

    Senior Business Analyst (Current Employee) Plano, TX (US)

    ProsWork-life balance. They allow you to have a say in the process, they value your opinion and you get a chance to have input into the process/es. Great benefits and very fair pay.

    ConsVery frequent re-orgs. I really still do not know what it is I am supposed to do there. We've been redirected to a new goal/strategy so frequently recently that I am just trying to understand what I need to do each week because down the road all the plans may change anyway.

    Great experience

    MBA Intern (Current Employee) Mountain View, CA (US)

    ProsGreat compensation - comparable to other Silicon Valley titans. Company is becoming leaner and much more focused on developing younger talent. Work-life balance is some of the best you can find in tech. Very focused on hypothesis-based testing and experimentation.

    ConsLots of meetings and powerpoint. Senior leadership is aware of the bureaucracy of a bigger company though they can do more to make organizations more nimble.

    Advice to Senior ManagementKeep up the good work of focusing on your employees and recruiting young talent.
