    Pros

    Nuance has been through an exciting transition over the last few years and has come out stronger and better than ever. The new Senior Leadership are focused on executing against goals, winning in the market, and investing back into employees and culture. Nuance is unique because it is an industry leading company competing with the big names in the tech space, but still has some of the start up mentality where people can get involved in lots of projects and really create their own path. Hard to find a mix like that these days...

    Competitive compensation, super smart and talented employees, an exciting direction and strategy, and ability to get involved in anything you're interested in if you show initiative.

    Cons

    Some of the old-school learned behavior still lingering from the previous leadership team. It's getting better, but depending on what group or team you're in it can feel like things are changing more slowly.

    If you don't take initiative or network internally you might end up feeling a bit stuck. There are endless opportunities at Nuance, but with so many talented people you can't expect them to just fall in your lap without some initiative on your end.

    Advice to Management

    Keep communicating with employees and focusing on culture and the employee experience. Don't ramp down the great things the new leadership team has been doing since Mark B joined.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2+ months. I interviewed at Nuance.

    Interview

    Three different interviews. One with HR, one with my potential manager, and one with a higher-up in HR. There was no technical portion, but in-depth theory and experience questions were asked. Between salary negotiation and an official offer, I had to wait about four weeks due to requiring higher-up approval than expected. All interviewing was done over the phone due to COVID.
