    Former Employee - Software Developer
    Former Employee - Software Developer

    Pros

    Employees (even student coops) are given the opportunity to excel and take on responsibilities. Your position at the company seems to reflect the position you've chosen for yourself. No Peter Principle here.

    Also, there's a good gym right in the office. Big cafeterias, a nice lounge, some rooms to sleep.

    Cons

    Tax software is soul-crushingly uninteresting. A great deal of legacy software is being supported, which can be tiresome, though admittedly there has been some work to port old code to more modern frameworks.

    Oh, and the food you'll find on site will send you to an early grave.

    Tough to reach high expectations but nice to try

    • Culture & Values

    Current Employee - Anonymous Employee

    Pros

    Aspirational environment, solid commitment to company values, mobility and development, friendly environment. This is a group of nice people trying to make a difference for our millions of customers. Exciting to be part of a group that is so customer-back in their approach.

    Cons

    Friendly environment can cause avoidance of difficult conversations, passive aggressive behavior instead of direct and candid communication. Still not good at narrowing the focus. We take on too many priorities and instead of narrowing, we just bucket them at a higher level. Need to be more candid in letting each other know what we can and can't support with our available bandwidth.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Don't stop being aspirational in pursuit of candid feedback and employee development. But build employee and manager capabilities and hold them accountable.

    Great Seasonal Employment

    • Comp & Benefits
    • Work/Life Balance
    • Senior Management
    • Culture & Values
    Current Employee - Anonymous Employee
    Current Employee - Anonymous Employee

    Pros

    Work from home, an OK rate per hour. You can do your job and be compensated for a job well done. Depending on the manager you get praise and a good bonus at end of season.

    Cons

    It is seasonal with no benefits other than 6% 401 K. I would like to see more year round positions. Once you master the technology and the Intuit way your season is over and you have to wait until December again. Some people get offered to stay a bit longer but Intuit has a policy that seasonal employees cannot work more than six months.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Every tax season you let go of amazing talent that could help you grow the business year-round and shine in customer service. Use your tax advisers to help you grow your quickbooks business and integrate your tax software to the quickbooks programs.

    Typical large company inertia makes changing direction a challenge, however, Intuit does what is required to keep in pace with their competitors.

    Pros

    This is a company that takes good care of its employees. The balance between work and private life is very reasonable and the company really care about its employees.

    Cons

    The company suffers from too many reshuffling in the organization - this creates confusion and decreases productivity. Also, decisions are not particularly quick.
