    INTU Laid off 100 IT people

    I think INTU is running into money problems, they just laid off about 100 IT people, not sure about company wide.

    • So oldman and pookie agree that Intuit has internal management issues... big deal!

      Welcome to corporate America and the good old boy network, folks. As long as Intuit is turning over a good product to consumers and making money, hand over fist, why would an investor care about a disgruntled (ex)staff member?

      Pookie's boast about unhappy employees must be substantiated by his/her own survey of the company's 6000 employees! And to jump into the stock message board and dump a bunch of chronic complaints and insults pretty much reflects "some people get all bent out of shape for the sake of controversy and drama.."

      Still sounds like an unbelievable amount of whining for an ex-employee.

    • Well said my friend... Well said...

      "I got your back man... Some people get all bent out of shape just for the sake of controversy and drama... but they miss the fact that our insight (from whatever angle that may be) has validity and merit.

      This isn't just emotion spewed (though some banter has been entertaining for me lately)... it's posted to serve as a little window into 'the inside' and how things are - beyond what the media says, and having nothing to do with some financial guy trying to boost or crash stock prices...

      Employees are the skeleton of any company... but in this case, Intuit's skeleton is weak because many employees (in IT as well as some other areas I'm sure) just aren't happy anymore. You can expect disgruntled or unhappy employees in any company, same as you'll have your perfectly content employees (usually the newer ones or the cheerleader types, or those not directly impacted by the problems yet) - but to have the number of unhappy employees that Intuit has should be an indicator to someone that something's just not right.

      In the begining of this thread, the comments were directed towards the layoffs of the IT employees - that's it... but then you have people on these boards, who have no ACTUAL knowledge of the situation (other than their unjustifiable 2 cents worth of hot air) just trying to slam people for posting their insight. They seem like people who don't want to acknowledge that there are 2 sides to every coin.

      Then again - the Intuit boards (and yahoo boards in general) don't usually seem filled with much more than people looking for tech support or a place to vent their personal issues on a finance board. Only on occasion do you find those who contribute good information - you get to know quick - but there will always be some pud who wants to argue just for the sake of it. It usually bugs me, but recently, I've taken part just because I had a lot of friends who were laid off and having worked there for a long time myself - it motivated me to speak out since I'm not bound by employee confidentiality and insider ramifications anymore.

      I was generally happy working there, but when things started getting going downhill a little over 2-3 years ago, I worked harder and just watched the signs... when I hit my limit a few years later, I found a new job and left... but I worked the 65+ hour weeks till the end. However, many hard working and loyal employees stuck it out w/the hopes that it was just a phase and would eventually get better. These are the same people getting kicked in the teeth now. Not because they are/were bad employees (they were the creme of the crop actually), but because management doesn't want to continue to pay them what they're worth and hear their educated insight. They want pawns they can bring in cheap, tell what to do, and as long as they meet a minimal standard of service - that's OK with them. Their Core Values and Beliefs are a joke - the biggest hypocrits being the uppermost management.

      So if people want to bash what they don't know, it moves them from naive to ignorant - and their spew sessions on the board provide meager entertainment (to me)... so all of the pflatus' and onilkleymoorbahtats' can just keep on w/their - whatever you want to call it's - b/c for me it's like some cry for drama rather than something worth seriously considering when making a financial decision on a company.

    • LOL - wow, you sound like you have a lot to contribute to any boards... LOL

      Amazingly, I have a life... but I still like to read the boards for a few minutes at night... I must be some weirdo... "yo". LOL

      PS, all of your attempts at 'stabs' are pathetic... like a wanna-be smart ass... you just lack the smart part... LOL

    • Obviously you've never put in 70 hour weeks for 5 years to help build a company that stabs you in the back and tosses you on the street with no justification.

      They say the position isn't needed as they move the responsibilities offshore...

      Just isn't right...

    • Yo, satanpookie -

      Your passion for scolding people pretty much reveals little pookie, crying and weeping under the crib covers. Wah!

      Repeat, GET A LIFE!

    • Small-minded idiot?

    • "tis best to be thought a fool than to open one's mouth and remove all doubt"

      ...Then why did you try to argue as fact - a point you know little to nothing about first hand?

    • My site has a big party planned for Monday April 18th, the day after tax day.

    • Second stooge.
