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

    Pros

    Extremely talented employees who are dedicated to making Nuance successful. Great salary, flexible work environment, and a ton of autonomy to do the work you find interested. Awesome innovation and a wonderful time to be part of such an exciting organization.

    Cons

    People are stretched fairly thin in some areas, which will hopefully improve over time. Some Senior Leadership changes which have led to unknowns, but have ultimately been great for the business (and will continue to be).

    Advice to Management

    Keep progressing and moving in the right direction. The changes in the last 6-months alone have shown the long-term commitment the organization has to innovation and being the leaders in our industry.

    I worked at Nuance full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Technology no longer sexy but there is potential.

    Cons

    Management is inept. CEO and team are in it for personal gain. They play favorites and are constantly cutting people and jobs and moving people offshore. Knew I had to go when I got my first and last bonus in STOCK not cash. Is that even legal?

    Advice to Management

    Quit and give the company a chance.

    Pros

    .Action-oriented Culture;
    .Challenging, meaningful work;
    .Real Deal Transactions;
    .Strong Leadership and good colleagues. Folks are motivated and striving to make Nuance better;
    .Autonomy for self-driven leadership;
    .An (increased) agenda for growth and innovation; fueled by focus on organic growth targets and augmented by strategic M&A;
    .Great position for growth in current verticals - deep engagement with large enterprise customers - with global scale, and lots of headroom for growth;

    Cons

    .Hard-driving, ever-changing culture - may not be a great fit for 'wait and see' personality;
    .Acquisitions history yielded a fragmented culture - actively being addressed, but some to go;
    .Promotions - even for top caliber employees - are self-led and sometimes hard fought;
    .Legacy of quarterly metrics trumping long-term decision-making/positioning hampers the stock price, though key financials trend to significant improvement in F17/18;

    Advice to Management

    Continue the focus on organic growth and culture, relentlessly innovate and transition well over the next 15-18 months

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

    Pros

    Team centered coworkers who take up slack for you when you need it. All here are hard chargers who go the extra mile for the company and each other. Manager's doors are open mostly and have open office hours twice a day. Mostly senior engineers working here.
    The technology is cutting edge and the equipment for developers is state of the art. Best development IDEs and DevOps team is packed with cross-disciplined people to implement new ideas. Software risk is well-managed and releases are weekly. Quality gates are automated and the company is growing.

    Cons

    Can be intense at times with lots of lulls in the action. When we pour it on, it's on! Then we can relax and review the release items.

    Advice to Management

    Pace work volume a bit better (working on it, I know). Staff up on IT engineers. Increase training opportunities.

    I have been working at Nuance full-time (More than 8 years)

    Pros

    Nuance is a great place to work and to advance. We offer:
    * Fabulous smart people who all work together cooperatively to accomplish cool, innovative technology. People are focused on company success, and teams are open and eager to collaborate. Smart, young employees just starting their careers are highly valued for their fresh insights as well as their potential.
    * You can make your own opportunities to grow, learn, and advance, with Management's support and encouragement. Take on new challenges, and you are rewarded. Within one department I've requested and taken on several very different roles, which all add to my effectiveness and career satisfaction.
    * Very flexible hours

    Cons

    The commute to the Burlington office.

    Pros

    Great products with cool technology

    Cons

    Backstabbing... one minute you are a superstar, the next you are on the list to be exited. It is an unhealthy environment for some departments. Expectation is that you are always working..even on a Friday night at 10pm...

    Advice to Management

    It is obvious who the favorites are. You have lost so many good people due to inept management and pitting employees against each other. It is ok for managers to get promotions and raises but the minions get squat.
