    I have been working at Intuit full-time (More than 8 years)

    Pros

    Good food, good people, great life, awesome pay, kickass benefits.

    Cons

    Intuit started off in 2006 with a lot of promise. Great products, migration from Desktop to Mobile/Web. They setup a great office in India, created a great culture and hired fantastic people.

    But Intuit India is a career dead end for engineers - teams only do maintenance jobs on products that the engineers in the US won’t do. And this is beautifully camouflaged as “important critical work to the business”.

    Consequently, there is a constant celebration of mediocrity in Intuit India. Passable / run-of-the-mill engineering outcomes are celebrated wildly. While there is no doubt there these result in good financial results and business outcomes, there is simply no engineering challenge in Intuit India - with a result that all the sharp minds are reduced to blunt edges over time.

    People are made to feel good, given awesome perks (someone I know bought an Apple Watch as part of one of the benefits - in India) and get to travel Business Class from Bangalore to San Francisco on the Emirates A380. All this eyewash over time blinds the India employees to the complete lack of technical skills needed on their job any more. Anyone who dares to question their own status quo get rewarded with a few 100 stocks of the company which immediately ensures unquestioning loyalty for another couple of years.

    Few, if any, dare to compare themselves with where the software engineering market has moved in terms of scale / performance / ML / AI and are simply happy changing a blue background logo on a web page to a green one as long as it is cleverly marketed by the leadership as a “great win” for business.

    Most so called “architects” and “principal engineers” in Intuit India wouldn’t be able to hold a candle against engineers with half their experience working at Microsoft, Amazon, Flipkart, etc.

    Having been part of this organization for nearly a decade, these are thoughts from my own introspection as I look to reinvent myself and make myself relevant to the current market. This is a bitter pill to swallow for many but I say it as it is.

    Advice to Management

    Don't hire great people and make them do mediocre work.

    Pros

    Have a great product quickbooks , leadership is taking advantage of. Its like Microsoft's Windows, the earning cash cow.

    Cons

    Engineers are not respected and managers are given full support to do anything. Whatever engineer does, they should drum about and talk big, else you don't stand to survive in this company. The more you drum, the higher you will go. You need to have the art of how to get things done by others and take credit of the same.

    Advice to Management

    Invest and let grow in engineers and not managers. Listen and hear to engineers yourself and not believe what the managers say.

    Pros

    I think nothing else matter if your environment is not good and where you don’t feel respected.
    Only few teams which is really good and doing great.

    Cons

    Favouritism.
    Hostile environment at least place where I have worked.
    No work life balance.
    Be careful of which team you are part of because people from service industry has spoiled the place.
    The one who should have been removed are getting promoted & rewarded.
    You will be given low luring of benefits don’t fall for it, ask what you want don’t get lured for RSU’s and brand name.
    Check the manager’s background if he is not technical then better do yourself favour don’t join.

    Advice to Management

    I use to love this company, but I had bad experience.
    I don’t think this place has rotten to its core.
    But if you have to save this place better do necessary corrective action.
