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

Health Care Professional Services (Current Employee)
Burlington, MA

I have been working at Nuance full-time for less than a year

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!

Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend

Geat opportunity with flexible work-life balance...

Systems Administrator (Current Employee)
Burlington, MA

I have been working at Nuance full-time for less than a year

ProsCompensation is competitive, work-life balance opportunities are flexibile, and there seems to be buy-in from most levels to be better than the day before. There is a lot of work to do, but peers and managers are consistently trying to do the right thing...which is refreshing! Coming from a suit/tie environment, the casual dress code is actually way more of a plus than I would have thought.

ConsBudgets are tight so getting requests approved can be slow. On-boarding process is somewhat unorganized (as a new employee, I was not setup with any supplies or much direction besides references on the Company Intranet site). The cafe located in the Burlington HQ is less than to be desired.

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

Pretty good

Sales (Current Employee)

I have been working at Nuance full-time for less than a year

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.

Fast-paced organization - opportunity to grow your career!

Anonymous Employee (Current Employee)
Burlington, MA

I have been working at Nuance full-time for less than a year

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.

Great technology, good company/benefits

Senior Program Manager (Current Employee)
Austin, TX

I have been working at Nuance full-time for less than a year

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.

Nuance is a fast paced company with lots of talented people

Marketing Analyst (Current Employee)
Boston, MA

I have been working at Nuance full-time for less than a year

ProsNuance is great about supporting employees in terms of training, collaboration, and work life balance. With Nuance University, an online education tool, I was able to quickly gain an understanding of the company. This helped me feel right at home very quickly.

In terms of collaboration, I believe that the company's intranet is the easiest to use and most helpful internal website that I have ever used. In the past, I had always thought of this as a place for company benefit and HR stuff, however with the Voice, people are able to treat it like both a social network and collaboration platform.

ConsI am the only Marketing person of my floor, and am surrounded by Engineers. It has been difficult to figure out who my team is since I don't sit among them.

I also feel like the leadership is a little more siloed from the rest of the employees, rather than integrated with them. This can sometimes make me feel like the executive are not being transparent.

Advice to Senior ManagementWhen I came to Nuance, I was looking to start a career, rather than just simply a job. It would be great to have a better understanding of the different career paths that each role can take as well as learn what management is looking for to move folks into those positions.

It would also be nice to have a mentorship program and internal support groups that can help you along your career path.

My experience at this company has been great so far, I have been able to learn a lot in a fast paced environment.

QA Engineer (Current Employee)
Cambridge, MA

I have been working at Nuance full-time for less than a year

ProsThe pros of working at Nuance is that the environment is very friendly and I can go and ask anyone a question in my Dept. and they are always willing to help. The work environment is also very fast paced.

ConsSometimes the fast paced environment can get out of hand and is slightly demanding. This can be stressful at times, but it happens everywhere, so its not a big deal.

Advice to Senior ManagementI have great communication with my senior engineer, but not so much with my manager and I think more communication with the manager would be nice.

So far the experience has been good

Corporate Services (Current Employee)
Seattle, WA

I have been working at Nuance full-time for more than 5 years

Prosthey give you easy access to learn new things, they treat you with respect.

ConsI am located in Seattle while the main accounting office is in Burlington MA. We were formerly the Varolii Corporation who was acquired in October 2013

Advice to Senior ManagementNot to take away the stocked kitchen, it is really appreciated when you are extremely busy with deadlines and cannot get away for lunch.
