    I have been working at Nuance full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    Working from home. 20 days paid vacation.

    Cons

    1. Racial discrimination is serious in the group, which makes the working environment toxic. Managers have great power. They can form a gang with their favorite trusted followers. Unfortunately, the discriminated guys like me work like slaves: no promotion space, no decent bonus at the end of the year. 2. No healthy corporate culture. Within the company, each group is like a closed clan. If you are lucky that the... manager is a nice guy, the feeling is good. If the manager is a racist or a disgusting guy, you are done. 3. Bad communication and cooperation. People hide their resources from being "stolen" by others. They talk lots of abbreviated software names everyday with no one knows the full names. Pretty funny. 4. Few innovation. 5. No training for the new employees.

    You talked company culture a lot. Please take action to create a healthy company culture. Otherwise, the toxic culture takes place.

    I have been working at Nuance full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    Work from home work life balance, but this is being phased out. Great place to learn how not to run a large software services company

    Cons

    Senior leadership lacks clear vision of where the company is going, let alone how to implement it. Mid-management lack the experience or desire to drive improvements or set clear objectives. Poor planning is the normal operating mode. Utter disregard for the need to set clear objectives for employees drives poor productivity and engagement from all areas in the business. Technical debt is created at every turn... and is never addressed due to product priorities.
