    Pros

    Intuit's operating values, diverse culture, fabulous people, and challenging workload make this a great place to work. I highly recommend anyone serious about their career to explore the options available to them at Intuit

    Cons

    Having moved from a 20 person company to an 8000 employee company, getting use to the volume of meetings, slow pace of change, and all of the extra red tape took some getting used to.

    I worked at Intuit as an intern (less than an year)

    Pros

    The company has a new set of values and these focus strongly on being bold and being honest. It instills a feeling of pride in the employees. I had a phenomenal time working there. I was an intern there.

    Cons

    From a younger person point of view, it does seem like a very mom and pop type of company. The average employee age is pretty high (mid to late 30's). While this is not a bad thing, it just felt like the company isn't innovating as fast as it could. But, intuit actually recognizes this and is actively involved in their internship program and is trying to bring in younger minds, their internship program is very good.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Don't get complacent with the product, keep innovating!

    Pros

    Great perks and benefits. Really friendly culture, everyone is helpful. If there's anything you need in order to complete a project, they'll make sure to get that for you.

    Cons

    Larger companies tend to move slower. Even if you have a great idea, it could take ages for it to see the light of day or it may never see the light of day because of their process.

    Pros

    The company has a very conducive culture which offers growth and they have excellent perks.

    Cons

    You might some times get into teams that are much less interesting and dull compared to others and that is a negative

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Management should try and assign teams to its employees that are more aligned to their strength and interests.

    Pros

    Best Company I have worked with, Great Work Culture, Great Colleagues, Growing Technology, Good Benefits, Great Place to work , Supports Diversity.

    Cons

    Huge Orgs and sometimes Frequent re-orgs so you have to be very adaptive in working with a new manager every couple of years.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Similar UI experience across all products will make the customers WOW. No one seems to pay enough attention to how products sold by the same company have different interaction workflows and are confusing to the customer.

    Pros

    I've worked for several companies but none that have come close to living their values and putting employees and customers first the way Intuit does. Lots of challenging work and great opportunities to learn and grow. Clear vision of what the organization is working to achieve. The best teams I've ever worked with.

    Cons

    The work is interesting and challenging but at times can be difficult to maintain work-life balance.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Continue to keep the organization focused on the vision.

    Pros

    Smart people, challenging work and decent benefits. If you are lucky you may work directly with inspiring leaders directly.

    Cons

    They have internal rules for Green card policy which is not at all in sync in with USCIS .In most cases, its a flat EB3 policy for all job titles unless you have a title "staff software engineer" ONLY.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Change your immigration policy if you want to attract and retain smart talent. Your immigration policy is conservative , inaccurately interpreted and hurts more than helps.

    Pros

    Pay was great. Benefits and bonuses were also great. Overall was very happy.

    Cons

    Company is large and scattered. They try to allow different units to operate as a startup but struggle when you have to coordinate across business units to get stuff done.
