I pointed you to an article in TechCrunch on Tuesday regarding Intuit's recent layoffs. I was able to connect with Chris Repetto, Communications Director, Intuit Accountant & Advisor Group, to see if I could get any further insight and confirm whether any of our friends within the Accountant and Advisor Group were impacted. Here's what Chris was able to share with me:
"I can confirm with you that last week we announced organizational changes that were made to drive greater alignment with the company’s priorities.
These changes unfortunately did affect 399 employees across Intuit. All will receive separation packages and assistance with career assistance from Intuit and are eligible to look for another position with the company.
This decision will have little to no impact on the Accountant and Advisor Group or our ProAdvisor team or how Intuit supports our Accountant partners and customers.
As you know, Intuit is a growing company and to keep our momentum going, we have increased the clarity of our strategy and we're matching our investment decisions – our time, people and dollars - against our strategic goals that will make the largest positive impact on our customers’ lives and business outcomes."
We are glad to know this should have little to no impact on the part of the world of Intuit that we serve.
