Pros

Nuance emphasizes a proper work/life balance. It's a voice recognition tech company that has relationships with some of the most advanced companies in the world. The technology is very exciting.

Cons

Advancing up the ladder is close to impossible. Also, switching to a different division is very difficult as well. If you like what you are doing and would like to do it for a career without advancing outside of your expertise Nuance is the place for you. Also, recent expense restrictions have reduced the amount of corporate benefits you might expect from such a large company. Finally, Nuance grows by acquiring companies and your job security could change in a heartbeat.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

I would tell Sr. Management to emphasize growth from within, as well as increase communications between divisions. This would reduce the amount of redundant work that is happening across divisions.

    Pros

    The company has a strong culture. The work was somewhat interesting but simple. The people in general were nice and helpful. It was very well organized in our office, with clear goals for advancement and plenty of interaction with managers to determine the best way to work.

    Cons

    Working with phones all day was awful. Hours were long, it is worrying when one of the selling points of the company was that they buy dinner when you stay late, which happens quite often. There was a huge push on number of hours worked. After the aquisition, things are constantly being cut.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Respect the employees, having someone walk around calling the employees 'loads' because they are bringing the company down is definitely not the way to treat people.

    Pros

    Technology based, variety of different areas to work on

    Cons

    Hard to determine how to break into different areas of company if you are interested in working on a new technology. Since company has grown mostly thru acquisitions, it's hard to get a feel for what's going on in other offices, since they are spread out across the country and globe.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    I think more emphasis should be placed on familiarizing newly acquired divisions into the rest of Nuance. In addition, should make it clear to employees how they can move laterally to different areas of the company, if need be.

    Seems like Nuance employees are often the last to know about new things the company is working on or ne w policies.
