    Company with broad portfolio of Intellectual property and some great customer brands

    Anonymous Employee (Former Employee)

    ProsNiche leader in voice. Relatively unrivaled in what it does.

    ConsBreadth of divisional portfolios creates challenges for corporate message. Potentially at least one Business unit might be non strategic.

    Advice to Senior ManagementKeep focusing on being best in class. Keep shifting to cloud. Keep R&D at health ratio of expense.

    Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend – I'm optimistic about the outlook for this company

    Demanding but rewarding. Every year a merit increase was received. Not many companies offer that.

    Applications Consultant (Former Employee)
    Boston, MA

    ProsBenefits, employee culture, and benefits.

    ConsDifficult to balance life and work due to 100 percent travel.

    A learning experience from a professional corporate company.

    Intern (Current Employee)
    Burlington, MA

    ProsThe pay was great and the company benefits was nice, as well. The atmosphere for working was professional and a lot of fun stuff goes on at Nuance.

    ConsSome of the work was stressful and you learn a lot at one time so it can be a lot to take in when working within SalesForce.

    Advice to Senior ManagementKeep the SalesForce tutorials because it helps out a lot when first learning how to work through the database.

    Nuance is a vey innovative company with teams that are very welcoming.

    Project Manager (Current Employee)
    Tampa, FL

    ProsI am new to the organization and work remotely. During this introductory period I have felt empowered to think freely and bring ne ideas to the table of discussion. The teams that I work with seem to very knowledgeable and inspiring.

    ConsAt this point, there are no negative feedback.

    Advice to Senior ManagementFairy new and would not be able to give constructive advice to management.

    My experience at Nuance has been very positive and rewarding so far.

    Health Care Professional Services (Current Employee)
    Burlington, MA

    ProsI have the opportunity to work with other highly dedicated health care professionals who provide an array of technical and/or consulting services, yet have the ability to work independently in a remote/home based setting. It offers flexibility and a much better work-life balance than any other employment I've had in my 25 years.

    ConsAs with any remote/home based position, keeping open lines of communication and information flow can be a challenge. We're moving in the right direction though!

    Fast-paced organization - opportunity to grow your career!

    Anonymous Employee (Current Employee)
    Burlington, MA

    ProsThis has been my experience:
    - my team is filled with high achieving, smart people and creative people
    - there's a lot of room for improvement (might be seen by some as a con)
    - employees who produce results and are open to new opportunities are given those opportunities (this happened to me!)
    - within my group there is a focus on results and not punching a clock
    - Since joining the company, I
          - have not had one day where I was bored
          - have not experienced "Sunday evening blues"

    Potential candidates to Nuance should be comfortable with change and be able to dig in to get work done. To me, this is a positive as there is a lot of opportunity for growth and change but for some this environment would be challenging.

    ConsOverall, I am very happy with my experience working at Nuance and do not have any cons at this time.

    Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend – I'm optimistic about the outlook for this company

    Pretty good

    Sales (Current Employee)

    ProsPay is nice for my role in sales. Some people are very fun to work with. Technology is very cool.

    ConsThere are a lot of conference calls, even if people are in the same building. It would be much better if we all bounced ideas off of each other and made the job a bit more creative.

    Great technology, good company/benefits

    Senior Program Manager (Current Employee)
    Austin, TX

    ProsOverall the company benefits are very comprehensive: Medical, Dental, Vision plan. Company paid short-term and long-term term disability are included. 401K matching plus Employee Stock Purchase Plan are available. The PTO policy is quite generous starting at 20 days combined vacation/sick/personal time-off.

    Talented team/resources that have the customer first mindset.

    ConsNuance has grown through acquisitions and it takes time to integrate systems, processes, culture etc. So navigating within Nuance can be a challenge if you deal with multiple product lines.

    Advice to Senior ManagementContinue to focus on "operational" efficiencies to integrate systems, processes and create a culture of continuous improvement.

    Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend
