I worked at Nuance full-time (More than 3 years)

Pros

Some very talented people with great ideas just waiting to be heard

Depending on the group, great managers that empower their teams, champion new ideas, fight to retain good people and recognize the hard work and talent individuals and teams contribute

Awesome technology with endless business growth possibilities in the right hands

Cons

Lays off high performers and valued employees that get things done and move the business forward - as a result this has created a territorial vs collaborative work environment

Old guard C-level team completely out of sync with today's dynamic business world - need a new executive team with fresh thinking that has worked at a company other than Nuance in the last 10-15 years. Given all the start-up acquisitions the company makes each year - too bad the TONS of great executive talent there has been under utilized.

Zero work/life balance - expected to give up nights, weekends, holidays, vacation time

Advice to Management

Recognize when it is time to pass the baton to the new guard for the greater good of the company and its employees. Invest in creating a culture that appreciates employees and offers a pathway for career growth. Embrace new ideas and take calculated risks to evolve the business to be relevant for today's market - and commit to invest what it takes to successfully see this through.
