No opinion of CEO

Pros

- If you're interested in NLU, it can be a fun and somewhat exciting place to work
- There are opportunities to learn, if you want to take them

Cons

- Upper management often seems confused as to what direction they are heading in
- There is a lot of spoken "yes" but little action
- Firings seem to happen to satisfy headcount and quarterly earnings, not entirely based on performance/reliability/competence
- Very little communication between teams working on similar projects

Advice to Management

Nuance is organized hierarchically so that teams with overlapping knowledge are not aware that they are working on similar problems, so the same work gets done over and over.

    Pros

    Nuance provides a nice working environment where almost everyone is really nice. The break room is usually well stocked and the company is trying its best to have good social interactions between people.

    Cons

    No one knows anyone outside of their team, and they don't care to. Developers are seen as fungible resources and time split on completely different projects is seen as a really good thing. Young developers are not mentored or pushed to better themselves as software engineers. This is the wrong place for any new grads that are talented. Which is extremely unfortunate, because there is a reason Google, facebook, microsoft, and amazon recruit heavily from universities and do well. No sight for advancement either.

    Advice to Management

    Listen to your developers more. Encourage young software engineers to work on hard problems and mentor them. Don't let their talents stagnate! They were talented enough to get hired, now invest in their abilities. Otherwise, they will realize they aren't becoming better in their chosen career path and move on.
