Perks and Programs

We asked Intuit Inc. to share a few programs they feel really capture what's unique about their workplace. Here is what they had to say.

  • Parental Leave, Family Support: New moms and dads get up to eight weeks off -- with pay -- following the arrival of a new baby. That applies to adoptive parents, too. In addition, we provide $5,000 to assist families who are adopting a child. Our back-up childcare and elder care program provides access to credentialed in-home care specialists and accredited childcare centers at subsidized rates. Through various flexible spending accounts, employees can contribute up to $5,000 in pre-tax money to cover everything from medical expenses to day and dependent care. To help with employees' four-legged friends, the company offers programs for pet sitting, dog walking and pet insurance.
  • Fitness Pays Off: From state-of-the-art fitness centers to individualized health exams and subsidized, well-balanced meals, Intuit encourages employees to stay in shape. Fitness centers on the company's campuses are open 24/7, offering a variety of free classes to get the blood flowing and muscles flexing. Employees can also receive up to $650 a year to pay for gym memberships, personal trainers or sports lessons. Biometric screenings let employees who meet healthy weight, cholesterol and blood pressure standards earn up to $2,470 in paycheck credits. A new, optional wellness program includes comprehensive DNA, blood and saliva tests to create a complete picture of participants’ health. Our cafeterias also offer a healthy lunch option, including a vegetarian dish, every day at discounted prices.
  • Commuting Made Easy: Intuit doesn’t want to make you work to get to work. We provide up to $100 per month to encourage employees to get out of their cars and into trains and buses. We pay the fare for San Francisco Peninsula Area employees who ride Caltrain to work. We also subsidize passes for shuttle buses equipped with Wi-Fi that bring employees to and from our Bay Area campuses. If you work late and miss that train or bus, we’ll pay for five guaranteed rides home per year. For those who prefer pedal power, we provide more than 40 bikes for cycling commuters. These programs have earned Intuit’s U.S. locations certification as a Best Workplace for Commuters.
  • Time Off For Good Behavior: Employees can take up to four days off with pay every year to do charitable work with nonprofits through our We Care and Give Back program. We’ve helped construct houses, rebuild schools after disasters, and made the holidays brighter for the poor by collecting and distributing food, gifts and clothing. Last year alone, employees logged more than 16,000 volunteer hours in the community. That’s almost two full years of donated labor. We doubled our matching gift contribution program this year, matching up to $5,000 in employee donations to nonprofits.
  • Promoting Financial Fitness: Intuit's compensation package goes far beyond the paycheck. The company offers employees a generous 125 percent match on their 401(k) contributions, up to $10,000 annually or 6 percent of their annual salary. Stock options and restricted stock units are also available based on performance. Employees participating in the company's stock purchase program can contribute up to 15 percent of their pay to purchase Intuit stock at a minimum 15 percent discount.
  • Mentally fit: Headspace is like your very own personal trainer—for your mind. With your Intuit-paid annual subscription, you have access to a wide selection of 10-minute guided meditation sessions. These sessions help you improve your focus, get better sleep and experience less stress. And because you can access them online or through the app, you can enjoy your mental workouts wherever and whenever you want.
  • Spotlight on Performance: Employees can recognize each other for their above-and-beyond work through our Spotlight award program. Awards range from $10 to $1,000 and can be redeemed for gift cards, travel or charitable donations. Outstanding achievement can earn you a weekend for two anywhere in the continental U.S. We celebrate every five-year service anniversary with Spotlights, too. In addition, top performers in leadership, sales and customer care enjoy multi-faceted recognition programs that can include all-expenses paid travel to resort destinations, Spotlight awards and face-time with executives. Hawaii, anyone?
  • Back to School: Our tuition reimbursement and scholarship programs help employees and their families beat the high cost of education. Full-time employees can get up to $5,000 to attend pre-approved courses, while part-timers are eligible for up to $2,500. The Intuit Scholarship Program, established by co-founder Scott Cook and his wife Signe Ostby, offers private secondary school, college-level, and vocational and technical educational scholarships of up to $5,000 for students whose parents have worked at Intuit for at least one year.
  • Gender Reassignment Surgery: We’ve expanded our medical plans to cover transgender reassignment surgery up to a $75,000 lifetime maximum. One plan offers an unlimited lifetime maximum. This benefit covers pre-surgery counseling, the surgery itself and any medications. While we previously offered one medical plan that covered gender reassignment surgery, this coverage is now included in all of our medical plans.
  • Environmentally Conscious: We provide free charging stations for those who drive electric cars to work -- from Volts to Teslas. That's just one way that we have reduced our carbon emissions. We now have 143 chargers in the US, and estimate that we've reduced our carbon footprint by eliminating more than 160,000 kilograms of emissions from employee vehicles. Previous programs have encouraged employees to go solar by providing incentives to purchase solar panels for their homes and installing LED lights, just as we've done at our campuses.

How to Get Hired

We asked Intuit Inc. for some inside information on how to get hired at the organization. Here is what they had to say.

What key characteristics tell you a prospective employee will be a great fit for your company?

We start by assessing candidates on two levels: Do they share our Values? And, have they mastered their craft? Succeeding at Intuit means living our Values. You’re bold, passionate and decisive. You’re a fast learner who can work on a team. You deliver awesome results. You care about the world we live in and, most important, your integrity is impeccable. On top of that, you're great at what you do. If you’re early in your career, we expect you to want to grow and learn. If you’re more experienced, we want you to have mastered your craft. And be willing to keep learning. No matter what your level or where you are in your career, we want you to embrace and enhance our culture and help us get where we want to go, while we give you an opportunity to get where you want to go.

What can prospective employees do to get your attention?

As a perennial industry and workplace leader, Intuit is flooded with resumes. Standing out starts with building a great resume, portfolio or a compelling online profile. Then find a way to get inside Intuit. Be fearless. Start by networking through events and conferences, but don’t hesitate to reach out directly to employees. In an interview, demonstrate you share our love of the customer problem. Launch a free trial of one of our products prior to an initial phone or in-person interview. “When a candidate takes the time to understand first-hand what our customers experience, then comes to the interview prepared with intelligent insights and questions about both the product and customer experience, it always leaves a lasting impression,” says Brett Coin, director of talent acquisition.

Are there any positions or types of candidates you are particularly focused on hiring in this coming year?

Intuit seeks candidates who are passionate about pursuing meaningful innovation to improve the lives of millions. In particular, we're looking for talented product managers and software engineers who are passionate about building global, cloud-based mobile experiences for their customers. We recruit creative professionals with a mission to test the frontiers of design and user experience. We seek sharp-minded product managers to help Intuit take the end-to-end product experience to the next level. Our new Assessing for Awesome recruiting process ensures we hire only the top talent, while exceeding expectations of both the hiring manager and candidates.

What should interested candidates do to find out more and get started?

Go online and familiarize yourself with the product and the company. Use your personal and social networks to learn more about the company. And then, don't hesitate to contact Intuit directly. Intuit leaders, recruiters and employees are very accessible through LinkedIn, Facebook, live communities and other social media. "Online is perhaps the easiest and most efficient way," says Nick Mailey, vice president of talent acquisition. "Reach out to us and have a conversation. Don't be afraid to contact a recruiter or leader. Give us a call. Email us. Tweet us. We're open to having a conversation and accessible." Getting a referral from a friend at Intuit is a plus. The company places a high value on employee referrals, often rewarding those whose candidates are hired.
