Pros

Given the state of the economy, Nuance is not a bad place to work. We still received annual bonuses, though later and less than usual. We will also still receive compensation increases though they go into effect in July rather than January.

Cons

Poor management, lack of communication about the business and acquisitions. Lack of clear organizational plan. Worst of all is the lack of a corporate culture which would foster team spirit and cooperation, recognition, and stronger leadership. It really is "every man for himself" where self-promotion is encouraged, almost required.

Advice to Management

Communicate !

    Pros

    Nuance pays reasonably well - they have to to in order to keep people working in this environment.

    Cons

    The environment is toxic. Everywhere you look there is red tape. The HR group seems to run the place but has no idea what is going on. Nothing seems to be able to get done without CEO involvement, and good luck getting on his calendar. The company grows through acquisition but spends no time actually integrating the purchased companies. The acquisitions leads to multiple political camps within the company. Layoffs are a common occurence with this company due to the acquisitions, even in a good economy.

    Advice to Management

    Trust your employees and treat them like real people

    Pros

    free soda, decent cafe, cool technology- products, experience in working with a large company

    Cons

    Terrible managers, no praise for hard work, high stress, managers invading personal life, managers expecting you to work 24- 7 hours, executive/top management is NOT approachable, top management does not communicate and talk to employees within the business unit, HR makes up their own policy, do not go to HR for help - they only make things worse, most people at Nuance are UNTRUSTWORTHY. Do not trust these people. Most Nuance employees and managers are only looking out for themselves, and will throw you under a bus in a heartbeat.

    Advice to Management

    Senior Management needs to recognize employees hard work and dedication- which could start first my looking at them directly, and actually communicating. Senior Managment has a specific type of "attitude" that relects throughout the entire company. There is constantly tension between business units, managers will NOT help teams out across business units, and there is constantly pointing fingers at who did what and what is the right way to do this or that. Processes are a mess throughout all departments.
