    Pros

    Great team of people to work with in Engineering.

    We were acquired by NICE. Management didn't quite know what to do with the Silicon Valley office and eventually shut it down.

    I worked at NICE full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    - Excellent benefits that gets better over time (vacation days increase as tenure increases).
    - Long-time employees are very sharp
    - They manage their money well (but also leads to some dissatisfaction)

    Cons

    - Too much bureaucracy and the approval process to get anything done is ridiculous
    - The company takes little to no action on improving working conditions after collecting employee feedback
    - Recent hires are not very good and the company is not willing to pay for talent
    - The company is very disjointed and even with their effort to try and create a unified base, there are still tons of silos by department, role, etc.

    Advice to Management

    - Use real software and don't worry about license costs. Stop paying for on-prem solutions that are crappy.
    - Take employee feedback more seriously
    - Hire better talent

    I have been working at NICE as an intern (Less than a year)

    Pros

    HR is on the top of their game, they helped throughout the process, Great Location and speedy in communications. Pay is Decent for interns.

    Cons

    They can have more interns so there are much more collaborations with each other.

    Pros

    people in NICE are really nice. you won't find any geeks or people really picky.
