Pros

Nuance has a good mix of employees. From the ivy league and Type A personalities of go-getters to the more relaxed yet performers. Good benefits and great resources.

Cons

Company is growing very fast. Some of the employees who have been with the company for a while and are still getting adjusted to the "new" Nuance are getting left behind in terms of promotions. One could say there is favoritism but it's mainly with top performers.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Although "top" performers are treated generously, there are other employees that perform at their best their situation allows and shouldn't be penalized for it. Management should consider offering a more flexible environment given that it is very easy to have individuals work remotely but due to micro management it isn't allowed in key departments.

    Excellent future potential in mobile communications
    Extensive professional services across the US market/ International capabilities for scaling
    Broad array of vertical market solutions, healthcare included
    Some good executives with vision and a sense of loyalty to employees
    Acquisition strategy focused on the future of core growth arenas
    Generally good benefits (not inclusive of salary or incentives)

    Cons

    Lack of clear communication from executives to staff
    Underfunded marketing programs
    Little to no compensatory upside for employees below the VP level
    No career path evident in many departments
    Poor HR performance overall

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Communicate to your employees more often and more effectively
    Check your compensation - It's more expensive to hire than it is to retain a good employee
    Create a cohesive work environment where it's easy to work and not difficult to do your job
    Listen to your employees - they have a lot to offer - and take the time to do so
    Integrate acquisitions so that there's a culture that begins to form

    I have been working at Nuance

    Pros

    Flexible schedule if you are under a good manager who doesn't micromanage and you do your work. Benefits are ok. Career advancement is pretty much based on how hard and effective you work. Not a lot of limits if you are good. ESPP is good.

    Cons

    Salary is low especially since we haven't had a real raise in almost 2 years. Sorry but the 30% of 6% sucks. They work you to the bone here if you let them. When it used to be 10%+ raises it was worth the effort and loss of personal life but now with 0 raise and even if there wasn't a freeze at best it would be 6% doesnt cut it.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    We can see when the Sr Management is cashing in on stocks because that is public information and its pretty disheartening when the CEO is saying they can't afford to give hard working people raises when he is cashing in millions in stock.
