    Pros

    The team members are very knowledgeable, helpful and generally have a good direction on where their team fits in where the company is going.

    Cons

    With so many people remote or in other locations at times hard to really see how all the teams fit together.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    I would have all US new hires to come to Burlington, learn the company, understand the goals and then send the team members back to their homes or other business sites.

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

    Pros

    Although I get the luxury of working from a remote office and going on site as needed the other team members in the area are very helpful and friendly to work with. There is a mutual respect demostrated on calls with mangement and I never feel lost in the mix. I recieved my equipment early and was not held back due to lack of resources. There are always seminars going on for you to attned as you will to build you knowledge in all different areas which is great for growth. Management (which is not local for me) is always responsive and proactive.

    Cons

    One thing I gave up coming to Nuance was my nicely laid out benefits package. I had 3 wks vacation, 2 wks sick time, plus floating holidays and pretty much employer paid health coverage ($6/mth). Although I think the benefits package is competitive it was something that didn't match my old employer (still well worth the move).

    This is where you come to reach the pinnacle of your career. The CDI division is best practice in the industry.

    Pros

    The ability to collaborate with true "thought leaders" in the field, excellent benefits, innovation, and access to great training cannot be matched in industry.

    Cons

    This is a fast-paced company, so the only con is trying to keep up with all of the expansion and innovation.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Ensure that staff have the availability to participate in all the great training and technology the company has to offer.
