The results are out, and Intuit has climbed two spots to rank No. 40 on the 2012 Computerworld 100 Best Places to Work in IT. From a field of more than 500 companies, the list highlights companies that are delivering best in areas such as training and development programs, compensation, benefits and work/life balance. Intuit also ranked No. 9 on the list in the benefits category.
“Seeing Intuit place well and continue to improve each year on the Best Places to Work in IT list is encouraging,” said Sasan Goodarzi, Chief Information Officer. “We have a high performing team in Global Enterprise Solutions that works every day to delight customers, and we are dedicated to building on the environment we have where employees are highly valued, recognized and rewarded. The Computerworld list is external validation that we are moving in the right direction.”
Computerworld’s report about Intuit in the “Why You Want to Work There” profile speaks to the close partnership between GES and the business units saying: “Business and technology are fully aligned … IT employees are “embedded” within business units and have dual reporting relationships with the CIO and business-side managers.”
The article also referenced how Intuit recognizes talented, innovative employees with everything from gift cards to special dinners with senior leaders.
Computerworld determines the list based on both a company survey and an employee survey. The company survey portion asked for information on a range of topics from average salary and bonus increases and percentage of IT staff promotions to reward and recognition programs for outstanding job performance.
The employee survey portion covered topics including satisfaction with training and development programs, compensation, benefits and work/life balance. Employees were also asked to rate employee morale in their IT departments, the importance of various benefits, and their agreement with a variety of statements on subjects ranging from career growth to management’s fair and equal treatment of employees.
