      Pros

      Overall Company is rock solid. The upper management is awesome ( CXO`s ) - very efficient folks. Pay structure is slightly above market standards. Values Employees a lot.

      Cons

      The middle management is a blocker, and things need to be repaired . Office Politics starts here. - Need to be careful what you talk with the middle management, - things can be taken personally, which in turn will spoil the engineer`s career while here at Intuit.

      Pros

      Good Benefits, compensation Paradise for 0-3 yrs ,entry level engineers Talented peers

      Cons

      1) Too much of redtape, process and reviews 2) They blindly mimic some of the startups and their technologies without a need and rationale. 3) Some of the orgs have numerous dependancies across various stakeholders. Makes it impossible to work from home. Hampers flexibility. 4) PR driven company. Everything goes on social media. 5) Not a technology company. Very old legacy stack 6) They have monthly reviews and 360 degree peer feedback twice a year. 7) Extreme micromanagement by non technical middle management who attract talent by their sugar coated talks. 8) Growth depends solely on your network than on technical talent. 9) Please think innumerable times if you are heading here looking for latest technologies. Its going to be a shocker. 10) Devops model of dev owning Dev + QA +Devops leaves engineers overburdened

      Pros

      They pay well when you join. They give free food and transport They give NPS.

      Cons

      Pathetic middle management Small business group leadership is the worst Most middle level managers previous companies got busted. (AOL/Failed Startups/Yahoo/Sun). Too much of politics- regional (Bengali/Tamil) SPN is given to talented hard working non boot licking members, while boot lickers get promotions and travel to US way too often No competent Technical Architects. They just bluff around No innovation from IDC in last 5 years. All are support work. No one moves to Google or Facebook from here. People escape to LinkedIn, Startups,Australia/Canada and for MS Marketing with lot of social media including Paid Great Place to Work For awards Invests more on social media gags than on improving the technical comptency Vendors are chosen based on relationship basis. One directors better halfs company is now a prominent vendor and they dont have to clear any interviews.

      Innovation theatrics @ Intuit!

      Pros

      Benefits and package are great. Ideal place if you are not serious about work and career and if manipulation is your primary instinct. If you are good at marketing 10% of work 90% of the time, this is the bestest company you could work for.

      Cons

      The middle management layer is filled with incompetent Asian Indian men in the technology group who are experts at politics and manipulation. If you are serious about your work, you will be an outcast and will be driven to exit. Intuit is about innovation theatrics vs. actual innovation. Re-orgs will happen every few weeks in the name of business decisions because leaders are clueless. The CTO wants to create kick-ass engineers for the past 3 years. I hope she gets to see the down detector for QuickBooks & Payroll products and pays some attention to the comments left by customers. She believes that an engineer will be able to wear all the hats comfortably forgetting that experts in multiple areas are needed to ship and maintain flagship products. She believes SRE, testing and DB engineering, operations are irrelevant. I challenge her to bring Intuit to a point where Intuit products are available 24/7 for a minimum of 30 days without any downtime. Good luck to her theatrics. If you are an Asian Indian woman, you will be abused if you are smart and technical because the majority of the incompetent men can handle strong woman. The leaders who need to protect the employees are part of the problem and they care a damn. Please don’t get believe the best company to work tag for women. It may be true for women who are not in the technology or product teams. It a woman can suck up to the men in all layers of the management, then she will be spared — this is very true for Asian Indian woman. Age based bias is highly prevalent and they will fire people as part of mass layoffs without any reason to ensure older employees are gone. Intuit is a great place to work .... ONCE UPON A TIME!
