    Pros

    Interesting technology .... That's about it.

    Cons

    Recruiting tries to get top level people but none of them stay long, the turnover is unbelievable. If you're thinking of working there ask the recruiter about seniority in the group/department you're going to join. Some groups have higher rates than retail. The tone at the top of the organization sets everything. No value on quality work or improving processes, just get it done. Most people I know still working there are actively looking for a new job. Senior management has no direction. Don't expect any standardization, processes, or formal procedures. All of this leads to a really depressing atmosphere. A very negative place to work.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Nuance could be a really great place to work, clean things up! Put an emphasis on quality, process improvements, cut out red tape and work on retaining all the quality people you have!

    Pros

    There are many great colleagues to work with. Recruiting does a good job identifying talent but the turnover is indicative of the picture once you join.

    Cons

    Lack of leadership and a defined mission from senior management. HR adopted a forced ranking system meaning no matter how hard or how good your department is someone is going to be the bottom. This is a financial gimmick to justify inadequate financial rewards and lower than benchmark contributions to the retirement plan. In a word, can be cheap if you are not in senior management or sales.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Put a stake in the ground, communicate it and value the employees that are the backbone of getting things done.
