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.

  • Customer Obsession Tour: Intuit's unrelenting focus on delighting customers is grounded in Customer Driven Innovation (CDI) and Design for Delight (D4D). Intuit CEO Brad Smith and Founder Scott Cook traveled to 12 sites around the world to reground all 8000 employees in these design thinking methodologies - Intuit's 'secret sauce.' Our Customer Obsession Tour included pre-work, with every employee participating in two Follow-Me-Homes –Intuit’s way of getting closer to our customers, by going to customers’ homes or businesses to immerse ourselves in the problems our customers face. Collectively, employees, in groups of two to three, conducted 3,800 Follow-Me-Home visits with customers and invested 48,000 hours in hands-on D4D training.
  • Intuit Prosperity Fund: to fuel our mission to power prosperity around the world, Intuit partnered with Kiva, a micro-lending platform, to connect our employees to entrepreneurs who needed our help. We provided each employee with $25 to invest in any Kiva entrepreneur. Over 52 percent of Intuit employees activated their Kiva loan, resulting in Kiva’s highest participation rate ever! These loans have supported 4,798 borrowers in 59 countries, and 3,622 (75 percent) are women entrepreneurs. The borrowers primarily span the agricultural (44 percent), food (17 percent) and retail (13 percent) sectors.
  • Week of Service: Through our We Care and Give Back (WCGB) program, we grant employees 32 hours annually to volunteer for a cause of their choice. For one week each year, across its various locations, Intuit hosts an annual event dedicated to giving back. This week of service gives employees an opportunity to use their paid WCGB hours to join on- and off-site volunteer activities, or contribute in other ways, such as fundraising or giving in-kind donations. To date, through our Week of Service, Intuit employees have supported 120 charity partners, volunteered over 10,000 hours and donated almost $108,000 (US).
  • Investing in Employee Wellness: Intuit's gone beyond paid gym memberships and gives employees up to $1,000 for wellness expenses including everything from massage therapy to home cleaning services to camping gear, life coaches and financial planning. Everything employees need to have a well mind and body.
  • Checking out leaders' monthly check in: Every Intuit employee meets with their manager monthly to have a check-in conversation about their professional growth and development. Many leaders, including Brad Smith, Intuit's CEO and Sasan Goodarzi, executive vice president and general manager, Small Business and Self-Employed Group, share their monthly check-in with employees. Goodarzi sends his monthly check-in to all 4,000 employees in Small Business so everyone can see his goals, opportunities and feedback from stakeholders.
  • One Intuit Forum: The One Intuit Forum, or OIF, is CEO Brad Smith’s monthly meeting that provides an in-depth look at Intuit’s strategy and business performance. While most companies limit this detailed knowledge to senior executives, Intuit has expanded this conversation to include 400+ leaders across Intuit. Attendees are then expected to cascade the OIF content to their teams, creating ‘shared consciousness’ up and down the entire organization.
  • Intuit Again: Intuit recently launched Intuit Again, an innovative initiative that provides an opportunity for technologists to return to work after taking a break in their career for caregiving purposes. Intuit Again launched in Spring of 2018 as a 16-week returnship program with teams in Mountain View hosting 7 software development and data science returnees. The success of the pilot has led us to expand the program to include San Diego and Mountain View, as well as increase the number of openings.

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 easily across teams. 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 keep that thirst for learning and be willing to teach others. 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 to 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?

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 that you share our love of the customer problem. Walk in our customers’ shoes and launch a free trial of one of our products before an initial phone or in-person interview. “When a candidate takes the time to understand firsthand 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 and power prosperity around the world. As technology and customer needs change, we change too. Data-driven thinkers, machine learning enthusiasts and early career candidates who crave to build products serving their generation are just a flavor of who we seek. We also look for talented product managers and software engineers who love 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 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 our products and the company. Use your personal and social networks to learn more about the company. And then, don't hesitate to contact Intuit directly. Our 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." Getting a referral from a friend at Intuit is a plus. We place a high value on employee referrals, often rewarding those whose candidates are hired.
