    Disapproves of CEO

    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.

    I worked at Nuance full-time for more than 10 years

    Pros

    Flexible working, interesting technology, great coworkers.

    Cons

    Where to start? A new boss means there is a cleaning out process throughout the whole company, which in fairness is long overdue as the previous CEO just bought companies. It now feels like the company is being broken down for selloff. Highly skilled people being let go, without thought to what they added to the business. The company has always operated as distinct silos, with little interaction and more than a little aggression between divisions. Career progression and promotion - forget it. After aggressive know it all sales management? Got it in spades. Worth spending a few years here to enhance your CV - definitely, but tread carefully.
