- Intuit Inc.24.Nov 2015
One things is certain about Intuit (since 2009) is you can expect a re-org almost every 8 weeks. These re-orgs include shake-ups at upper management levels to middle management changes, to teams being split one way and then unified the next time around and also announcing RIF. There will be certain RIF's that wont be announced publically and you just hear them word of mouth. I could not comprehend what is achieved by these frequent changes that you dod not even get time to tune into the results of the previous changes in organizational design. Some people have tuned out the re-orgs and have become indifferent whereas the others are in constant fear of the hanging sword coming down.
Support from Management
Depends on teams to teams. I have had some really supporting leadership that encouraged to take calculated risks and trusted and supported the decisions made by me, and in other teams you can be constantly prodded about the things that did not work. Furthermore, some areas are old white boys club and unless you have built a good connection with them, you are considered an outsider and your career is stalled and expect your name to be on the RIF list - which Intuit is famous for doing it several times a year.
There is a huge disconnect between how the executive leadership operates whereas middle management does. Middle management sole cause is kissing up to the upper management.
