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.

    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.

    Strong company with weak central management.

    Pros

    Incredible technology with very little competition in the market place.
    A strong Middle management that is very concerned with their employees health and well being.

    Cons

    Unfortunately these same middle managers are hobbled at every step due to senior management policies. Managers seem to have no ability to resolve any issues or concerns, other than to communicate them to higher management. Some issues have been outstanding for many years now due to the inability to gain an answer from upper management.
    Communication inside as well as between departments is extremely lacking and policies/product offerings that directly affect processes in place are not well communicated.
    There is to much of a focus on top down management that doesn't allow any room for flexibility. An example is the travel policy is very stringent and for employees who have to travel very often it will greatly affect their quality of life.
    From the sales perspective Nuance's biggest losses result from an internal contracting process that has caused many customers to walk away from deals that had already received budget approval.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Distribute the responsibilities more evenly, it will improve morale and increase productivity.
