Interesting technology, incompetent management

Principal Software Engineer (Former Employee)
Burlington, MA

ProsThe technology is some of the most interesting out there for engineers.
There is a handful of brilliant engineers from whom you can learn.
There are lots of interesting technical challenges and an enthusiastic customer base.

ConsManagement is more interested in their own success, much less their employees'
Career ladder is a joke. Promotional favor is given to friends of managers.
Code quality is not a priority of this company. Getting products out fast is.

Advice to Senior ManagementManagers should be able to demonstrate competence in the area they are managing. For example, engineering managers should have a track record in engineering.

Reviews should include both peer reviews and reviews of managers. Neither currently exists. Code reviews should be part of the review process for engineers.

All software projects should have an architect who is responsible for code quality, development, and all technical decisions.

    Quite A Mediocre Job

    Technical Consultant (Current Employee)
    Mahwah, NJ

    I have been working at Nuance


    Pros: You get to work with many different technologies and development frameworks as long… Cons: Compensation for going above and beyond is absolutely awful. Also, being one of the first in the company to successfully implement solutions and developing applications… Advice to Senior Management: Learn to appreciate your less senior developers by giving them incentives to continue pioneering projects that haven't even been attempted in the company before. Also,… No, I would not recommend this company to a friend More
