I have been working at Nuance full-time (more than an year)

Pros

There are pockets of talented people at the company that have drive to move the company forward. When times get tough, some co-workers are proactive to listening and helping each other out. Nuance does allow people the flexibility to work remotely.

Cons

While there are pockets of talented people who are also nice, the matrix organizational structure seems to hinder any acceleration forward in certain divisions. Career advancement at Nuance will be limited by lack of tenure as that is rewarded more than talent.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

The HR department does a great job collecting employee surveys so empower them to help make changes for the better of the company.

    I worked at Nuance full-time (more than 5 years)

    Pros

    The company seems to have a clear direction. Provides the proper tools to accomplish your job. The IT department provided a very high quality infrastructure. The intranet portal provided a lot of useful information including safari online books.

    Cons

    In 2013 the benefits changed to Blue Cross. The new benefits had a lot of hidden costs that were not in the 2012 benefits. It was a big money loser for me.
