Pros

Huge growth and technical innovation. Brilliant executive team. Strong financially. Products are well balanced across many markets.

Cons

Very political. Lacks many career, personal development opportunities for a company its size. Sometimes tough culture

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Needs to break stovepipe politics at the top. Many old timers think more about their own well being over the company.

    Poor Place to Work

    • Comp & Benefits
    • Work/Life Balance
    • Senior Management
    • Career Opportunities
    Current Employee - Solutions Manager  in  Burlington, MA
    Current Employee - Solutions Manager in Burlington, MA

    Pros

    Great technical staff. Flexible about working from home. Some ability to travel for projects. Interesting technologies. Not much else that's positive that I can say.

    Cons

    Upper management shows great disdain for employee morale, training, and work-life balance. Projects are often run as death marches and are oversold on technical capabilities. Upper management has no concern at all for employees. Communication on major issues, such as layoffs, salary freezes, lack of bonuses, restructuring, etc are handled extremely incompetently and usually the worst way possible. Upper management is extremely aloof and cold to employees. HR is generally incompetent.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Understand that the actions you take to further enrich yourselves impact the regular employees. Look beyond your wallets.

    I worked for 3 summers as a Sarbanes Oxley Compliance Intern at Nuance.

    Former Employee - Sarbanes Oxley Compliance Intern in Burlington, MA

    Pros

    Ability to progress over three summers. I was given the opportunity to take on greater responsibility and leadership roles as I continued to work with the company.

    Cons

    Nuance seems to promote from outside the company rather than reward insiders just from what I had seen but not in my personal experience as an intern.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Consider creating internship positions outside of Compliance to serve as a basis to train future graduates to become future employees in the finance organization, especially in such a dynamic and acquisitive environment.
