    Pros

    A good company particularly for engineers. Although, I am working only since last 2 months but I have had the privilege of knowing the company very well. Many of my friends who are working in this company since more than 5 years also share the same perspective. I heard that people/engineers are so much pampered such that their efficiency or productiveness automatically decreases. I differ from that, we as Indians are really ready to be grinded by managers and others and think that is FRUGAL and ordinary in a working culture. Intuit is different where RESPECT is there and that is the best quality I would say for this company.

    Cons

    There is lot of competition/politics going on in engineering/management community to IMPRESS / SHOW-OFF their respective managers. Almost everybody (not all) looks like wants to impress their bosses . In this process, real innovation, hard work, creativity, takes a side lane many of the times and it becomes a demo-able business many a times. I also saw that many employees complain about not getting even 10% hike in annual appraisals but not sure about this. Intuit is famous for its payscales and it should rather not do this with its employees. Again, the managers have to become more active on this front.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    This organization is really great and I don't know how can you propagate this but please take care of managers/employees to not waste SO MUCH time to impress their bosses. For eg, for a demo to higher ups, employees tend to create a "script" and practice, which in a way is good but waste lot more time then needed... I mean we all are part of the team. They will actually get automatically impressed, if one will work hardly and HONESTLY. Also, I would request to take into consideration the hikes matter which may be highlighted by AES surveys we have.

    Otherwise, I think we are doing great !

    Pros

    Great management
    Competitive salary
    Good work life balance

    Cons

    Career growth is slow but possible
    For top performers the company is very supportive

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Encourage innovation ideas and help any which way to take it to market.
    There is lot of talk to encourage India specific ideas but then, when its time to market they are not that supportive. Do more to get more ideas in market. Lot of talented people ready to work and bring new ideas.

    Pros

    Money, Money & Money..... Nothing else...... You will get a BIG pay check at the end of every month, Stock Options, Facilities like transportation, food.... all these are excellent....

    Cons

    You will be working on outdated technologies (legacy groups). For surviving in these legacy groups, you need to be an expert in office politics. People here for long term dominates all others. Your skill is least bothered here. Senior management support only managers. Lady managers are really high in these legacy groups and even if they are completely wrong, Intuit will not take any action against them. Some of these managers are really misusing this, even though there are some good lady managers too.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Listen to employees.... not just from senior management. Giving preference to ladies is a very good culture, but Intuit is on the extreme side...

    Pros

    Good Pay : That is the only plus point
    Company is cash rich
    If you can play politics, it's "the" place to be
    If you butter up the right people, no need to do any work

    Cons

    Petty Politics
    Favoritism
    Performance does not mean that it will be recognized
    Too many people waiting in line to take away the work that you have done
    No visibility at all if you are a fresher

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Stop treating people like slaves
    Don't let it turn into a service company
