I have been working at Nuance full-time (More than 10 years)

Pros

Exciting cutting edge technology. It has been very stable. with many growth opportunities. Training is available to keep current in both the technical world and the business word. The ability to work remotely allows for a self motivated person to really flourish. It is a mid to large company with the personal management feel of a small company. You do get to know your managers and your team. This allows you to realize the impact you have on the company even though you may work from a remote location.

Cons

I have no complaints after working here for more then 10 years

Advice to Management

Keep leading the way.

    I have been working at Nuance full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    They are successful by becoming the biggest player in a few very cutting edge technologies.

    Cons

    Management underachieves when tasked with generating real value from their R&D and acquisitions. Way too many stovepipes, and the politics of how things are managed makes it difficult to be 100% productive.

    Advice to Management

    Focus on a clear long-term strategy, fair management practices, and brand development, not just profit driven by acquisitions, commission sales, and short-term marketing approaches.

    I worked at Nuance full-time (More than 8 years)

    Pros

    Benefits offered are decent, including PTO to part-time employees. Interesting technology products. Lots of potential.

    Cons

    The PTO benefit is almost useless since taking PTO is very challenging. When you do take PTO it is expected that you stay in contact. If you don't stay in contact, it is known because your inbox will overflow and begin sending bounce messages.

    Compensation is only ok. Bonuses are paid in stock options, which is not good when the company's stock is so volatile.

    There is lots of potential, which is evident by looking at the job postings. However, it is nearly impossible to get an interview, even if you have completed all the education and training available to part of the company in order to qualify. Yes, just part of the company has assess to the training. The NTS portion of the company does not have access to the educational programs Nuance offers.

    The company truly feels fractured, which becomes apparent when researching and reading reviews on this company. There is no continuity and definitely no ultimate goal the company is pulling toward. The company culture is a puzzle. They claim to support work/life balance, but that truly doesn't exist. Senior and executive management seems to be at cross purposes from middle managers and the workers. Truly, there are too many levels of management at this company. Simply way too many chiefs, many of whom are not good planners or communicators which is part of the fractured feel. Discussing concerns with management, even HR, only ends up putting the individual in the cross hairs. As one person noted in another review, they may listen, but they don't hear the concerns. They have acquired too many companies and not completed integration of many, which is likely part of the issue.

    Advice to Management

    Set a realistic goal and move the company towards the goal. Yes, a company with different divisions can have a single goal. Communicate clearly with the entire company. Offer all the divisions the same training opportunities. Develop and implement a continuity plan so that people can take real PTO rather than just "burning" days so they don't lose them. This is very important because no one at any level is indispensable.
