    Pros

    Large company with a diverse product portfolio. Very good compensation and benefits.

    Cons

    Intense micromanagement of activities and little innovation of products

    Advice to Management

    Improve morale by eliminating the need for daily updates and excessive reporting and manage like an enterprise software company rather than transactional selling.

    Pros

    - Interesting projects that push you to think analytically - Great exposure to higher level executives who were all very helpful and friendly - Competitive Pay - High quality mentorship from supervisors

    Cons

    - I was the only intern in my office, so I had to be sure to branch out in order to have a presence - Since a lot of employees come from acquisitions some of them feel more loyal to the former company than Nuance.

    Pros

    Very smart people, ongoing training for employees, fast-paced and innovative. Decent compensation. A resume enhancer with the positive name equity.

    Cons

    Managed by CRM, short term focus and frequent operations confusion arising from many different backoffices (new acquisitions yearly.)

    Advice to Management

    Support those who work hard and grant mindshare throughout the continuing growth.

    Pros

    A lot of very smart people who are willing to work hard for the company.

    Cons

    Poor upper management. High turnover. They continue to buy up small companies but do not know how to integrate them or utilize the talents they acquire.

    Pros

    Smart people and flexible work hours. A few great managers here and there. Some genuinely interesting challenges. Friendly people.

    Cons

    Very acquisition-centric so the culture and processes are confusing. Horribly confusing and outdated systems for HR/finance tells you just how little your time is valued. Usually slow paced until there's an emergency. High technical debt. Half-hearted attempts at innovation. Few teams actually use their own products.

    Advice to Management

    It's not clear what you're doing for the company. You claim to respect the workforce but then don't fix issues.

    Pros

    Industry leading provider of integral systems within the healthcare field

    Cons

    Long hours with little compensation. Quota's astronomical with the expectation of endless internal meetings which greatly hinder the attempt to reach quota.

    Advice to Management

    I understand that remote employees are something sort of new and up and coming, but my manager puts micro-manger all-stars to shame, she is literally legendary status. Invest in eating your own dog food as the saying goes...Nuance is a multi-billion dollar company with the back-end systems of a start-up on a shoe-string budget.

    Pros

    Work from home, computer and software provided.

    Cons

    Patient safety compensation plan implemented beginning 2015. Cut pay 60% from previous. Team barely making minimum wage. Disgraceful.

    Advice to Management

    Demoralized employees and debasement of work will not lead to success.

    Pros

    Constantly shifting technology. Flexibility on work hours - depending on your manager.

    Cons

    HR out-of-touch and not there to protect the employee. They often transfer employees between departments instead of giving promotions and raises, keeping lower-level employees at lower levels. No room to move up the ladder. Pay low compared to companies of similar size.

    Pros

    Great work life balance. Manager readily allowed me to work from home 3-4 days. Technology has made it all possible.

    Cons

    No vision for the future, people always stepping on your toe. No progress allowed, asking for promotion seems like i am asking them to step down.
