Speech Science Interview (Negative Experience; Average Interview)
I applied online and the process took 1 week - interviewed at Nuance in March 2014.
Interview Details – Had an HR round initially and then the Technical round.

Willing to relocate?
The HR person tells about the company and you can ask any questions if you have.
How would you increase the Speech Recognition Accuracy?

Software Development Manager Interview (Negative Experience; Average Interview)
I applied online and the process took 3 weeks - interviewed at Nuance in March 2013.
Interview Details – Had an initial phone screening with HR and the hiring manager. This led to a first round of on site interviews with the hiring manager, lead architect and peer managers. Interview process was straightforward as they asked a lot of typical questions related to past experience. The architect had me draw out the architecture of current solution I was managing and asked why I did things certain ways. This led to a second round with some of the same people and some newer higher up people. A lot asked the same questions either from before or (where they wanted more detailed answers) or from person to person (definitely didn't have a defined plan between the managers). Had one final on site interview (the 3rd) and then never got a definite yes or no. Kept following up with HR with a we'll know more next week. Additionally, was told 2x that it would be the final step in the interview process when it wasn't.
Interview Question – Most unexpected question was because a number of people asked it so it made me wary about the environment. Asked if given the opportunity in a meeting would I speak up during a meeting if I disagreed with views or would I be quiet and follow up later. Since it was asked a few times and the fact they said a lot of communication is done through email seemed like an issue. Answer Question
Customer Loyalty Interview (Neutral Experience)
Interviewed at Nuance
Interview Details – None; position offered after acquisition of company. Most of these positions are eliminated 12-24 months after integration of former company systems. Some people move on to other positions in other divisions but that is not the norm.
Negotiation Details – None. Take it or leave it.
Content Specialist Intern Interview (Negative Experience; Difficult Interview)
I applied online and the process took a day - interviewed at Nuance in April 2014.
Interview Details – There was no initial phone screen by a recruiter, but a phone interview with three people that lasted about 2 hours. Apparently the interview was supposed to be conducted in-person, but HR messed up somehow. Getting the interview to start was cumbersome and involved calling dialing a conference number and downloading some conference screen-share program which I was not aware of beforehand. Communication was lacking. The questions asked at the interview were more technical than I had anticipated considering the position, and should've been conducted at an on-site second interview instead.
They barely touched my resume and didn't seem interested in me as a person.
After the interview they told me they would have a response by tomorrow, and the next day I received a rejection voicemail.
