    I have been working at Nuance full-time

    Pros

    Time flies. Completed one year and feeling that a long road ahead. Many things covered in One year. I found that Nuance is very transparent in terms of Bonus, Pay revision and many other stuffs which is very well received by me. I have never taught of such open communication to all the employees.

    Cons

    The only cons I would say that HR needs to get involved more. There is no involvement of HR and many critical decisions are sometimes challenge. We may need to involve Training and coaching with HR and training institute to keep going with skills.

    Advice to Management

    We are growing every day. We need to shed off old school thoughts and accept new and standard approach for the challenges. Our world is dynamic and we have to react accordingly in fast pace.

    "Reality check"

    I have been working at Nuance full-time

    Pros

    I don't know who is writing these reviews, but they are not reflecting reality. Pros are smart people and cool technology. Working from home is common place so that's a huge perk. If you join Nuance thinking this is the most organized, well run place and peaceful, you will be in for a shock.

    Cons

    It's erratic, people want answers immediately and it's not uncommon to be on a call/web meeting and have people IM'ing you and knocking on your door because they can't wait till you hang up. To make it here you need to handle pressure and be nimble. There is constant change so you should expect it.

    Advice to Management

    Make a plan and stick to it and force the leaders to do the same and over communicate it. It's a confusing company even from the inside because with all the change, the left hand doesn't know what the right is doing.

    I have been working at Nuance full-time

    Pros

    The unit is in its growing phase, which gives an employee lots of opportunities to grow.
    You are working with stake holders across the globe which gives you an exposure that you generally not get everywhere.
    The Director at Lucknow office is full of energy and is always driving the team for growth.
    The salary offered is pretty decent and Lucknow being a not so expensive city adds to it.
    Flexibility
    The senior management In Burlington is very professional.

    Cons

    No HR personnel.
    No chance of working in other Nuance offices and locations.
    Minimal team activities. (reason also being less office space)
    No transparent hiring policy.
    Colleagues take undue advantage of flexibility

    Advice to Management

    Hire specific people for specific tasks.
    Be strict with your policies, and ask your employees to follow them ardently.
    Talk to the senior management at office and arrange a session for them regarding work ethics which they can then share within their team.
