    Pros

    Some of the pros about this place included a great benefits package, very intelligent co-workers, and a chance to work with some new and cutting edge technologies. Free Soda?

    Cons

    Where to begin..well first off this place treats workers as expendable. Be prepared to work long hours and to sacrifice your weekends and personal time all in the name of padding Paul Ricci's pockets. Nuance is a perfect example of a company that pays their employees just enough not to quit. As a result most employees do just enough work not to get fired. Worker morale is also very low because of the constant threat of lay offs. Expect to be managed by a group of technically incompetent project managers who are constantly asking: "Is it done yet? Is it fixed yet?". Also if you work here DO NOT expect a raise..ever. Nuance simply just does not give them. Try to restrain yourself when the HR department explains that the "bad economy" has the company short on cash for raises only to open your e-mail the next day to read that Nuance acquired three new companies for $300 million in cash. Rejoice when you get your 2% bonus after working countless weekends and nights for months on end. Another major topic worth mentioning is that Nuance is INCREDIBLY political much more than most companies. Nuance does not reward contributers but rather rewards individuals who know how to cozy up to management and play political games. Sadly I would not recommend working here. Just about everyone one of my old co-workers at Nuance was either actively seeking other opportunities to leave or waiting for the economy to improve to find a better job because Nuance is literally a career dead end.

    Advice to Management

    The employees of Nuance are the greatest asset that it posses. Disgruntling employees is a sure way to have very brilliant and talented people leave and apply their skills to other companies. Having low worker morale is also a sure way to have otherwise brilliant people produce mediocre work. Treat your employees better.
