Box or Intuit?

Everyone has opinions. I am curious to hear them.
hypothetical...PMO role for both locations. Work life balance, day to day, growth, long term outlook, office life, and whatever else you can think of. I realize its an apples and oranges comparison given the size and mission. Take a stab at it anyway and weigh in. Pretend you have to pick one and the compensation is similiar. Thanks in advance for the comments.

    I like Intuit. Find something in QBO Small business org.

      QBSE seems like the least of all evils.

  • Thats a weird comparison. Box is a tech company that probably has more interesting technical problems but the business as others have said is very competitive. Ultimately Box will be sold and cannot compete as an independent company. Intuit has a better business but is a very different company

      Agree. That’s why I called out it was a bit of an apples to oranges comparison in the original post. I agree with you though about a buyout. They will be acquired in the near future...that’s my thinking anyway.

      I agree with first half of BlueBane's comment, but I'd like to think Box could survive on their own. That may be naive of me tho.

      Box culture is great! The PMs work closely with Jeetu and Aaron from what I can see.

      Box has about a third of the employees as Intuit. I bet you can have a bigger impact here.

      I'd guess that box's tech stack is more technical/ modern but I don't know about intuit.

      The food at Box is really good.

      No 401k match at box

      The diversity and inclusion focus is big in recruiting / HR and in the ERGs

      CLyz87 what makes you say that? Intuit looks very nice to the casual observer. Comfortable work environment, campus, offices, etc. What’s your experience been like?

    It’s interesting to see how many current Box employees recommend Intuit. Thanks for weighing in.

      As someone else said Box has a great culture and people. But lots of external things going on if you google and concerned about long term business success.

      Those of us at Intuit know that a company can do well but when only a quarter of Intuit s employees are here over 5 years, that should tell you a lot about this place as well

      Wow. That’s an amazing statistic if it’s true. So longevity of ones career is not a strong suit? The person I interviewed with had been around a long time >15 years. The same was true of another person in that team as well. I guess your mileage may vary

    • Intuit Edward8371
      Yeah, they exist. But most of the if the company is there less than 5 years
      Sep 10
    • Intuit tXOo76
      I absolutely see the opposite. Many many folks been here 8, 10 and even 15 years.

    Go to Box. You'll have a job longer. Intuit does not value employees for more than a couple years.

      Been at Intuit for years. This is false and subjective.

      They do compensate well for sure. No doubt about it.

    Intuit is becoming a better place than earlier under the new leadership. The tech is getting better and stock is at all time high. Box would have been the choice earlier as a high tech company, but look at there stock price, revenue growth etc.

    So, Intuit will be my call.

    No idea about intuit. At box, I like the people, culture, wlb, TC but the business itself is slowly dying

      I have heard this but it was spun as a transition and this is the inflection point. Is there new business growing in other tracks or do you mean overall as a whole it’s fizzling out? Have you been there long?

    I love box. Great culture, nearly no office politics, very interesting problems to solve, have a great manager that cares about our growth.

      Why is the stock declining since the last 5 years ? What are future prospects if the current business opportunities are grim?

    My sister had both as options as well (along with Dropbox). She chose Box. She Just liked the hiring manager and the team more. She's been there over a year and still enjoys being there.

      They did seem to have a culture that stands out and is really taken to heart. You could perceive this throughout the interactions. I’m glad she is enjoying her time. Thanks for the comment.

    Despite the not so great reputation about Intuit as a tech company, it is actually not too bad. It has been riding the waves. From mobile, to cloud, to big data and now machine learning, the company has strategy to follow along the industry and not fall behind.

    It really depends on team. For Intuit, stay away from a platform team. You will be working across many geos and wlb isn’t going to be great. Other teams are better, but from my interactions, few places in Intuit really understand the PMO role well or how they can help, and that frustrates both sides.
    In terms of growth, I think both companies are in a similar position. In Intuit’s case it’s because more companies entering the space, and they are technology led.

      The role available to me is with the Intuit Platform and Financial Data Platform teams. Given your comments above what light can you shed on that side of the .org? @2PMing

      RUNAWAY.
      For all the reasons I have outlined above. But more than that, Intuit isn't as strong on the technology side, -- its slowly changing. Platforms are another mess all together, very few companies get them right, and Intuit is still trying to learn. What this has led to is little trust in the organization, and being treated like a second class citizen by others. If would advise a product org

    Though, I hate working at Intuit for how aggressive it is on employees, the business is thriving and the company is in transformation mode for good. I recommend you to join us.
    Intuit is a revolving door; u ll only make money if you stay long enough .

    Box is still around? People still pay them? I don't see why. At Intuit the company paid Box to use its stuff but everyone is using Google suite... lol.

      That’s interesting. I guess this depends on which specific team and org within Intuit. In this case I was told they are expanding the headcount. Thanks for your comment.

      They got rid of a bunch of crap PMOs which is a good thing. They need to do more to trim the fat.
