Complete micro-management by incompetent senior management
Nuance Board of Directors - they haven't intervened

Advice to Board of Directors is to wake up and do something - you owe it to the shareholders of this company

    "Not so bad in a satellite office, but rotten at the top"

    Doesn't Recommend
    Disapproves of CEO

    Pros

    Some of the projects are interesting.
    Great coworkers and corporate atmosphere, in our location at least.
    4 weeks of PTO per year (combined sick leave/vacation)

    Cons

    I'm embarrassed by the lousy customer support we give.
    Employees are treated badly so all the qualified ones leave for better places (our competitors).
    With refusal to hire or invest, it's only a matter of time before competition will leave us behind.
    We pay our new hires the same salary Google interns get. How could we possibly compete with them for talented engineers?
    Absurdly short-sighted focus on tomorrow's stock price drives bone-headed business decisions.

    Advice to Management

    Invest in your products enough to stay competitive. Stop acquiring lousy companies. Stop cheaping away the good employees. Hire new employees.

    Approves of CEO

    Pros

    Huge growth and technical innovation. Brilliant executive team. Strong financially. Products are well balanced across many markets.

    Cons

    Very political. Lacks many career, personal development opportunities for a company its size. Sometimes tough culture

    Advice to Management

    Needs to break stovepipe politics at the top. Many old timers think more about their own well being over the company.
