    I worked at Nuance full-time (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.

    Advice to Management

    Start listening, stop talking, be honest....

    Pros

    Company pays well and is flexible as an employer. There is a home working policy for sales. There is a good pension scheme health care dental care and well being programmes plus share options.

    Cons

    Management strategy and direction is very much at odds with the market. Instead of incorporating solutions once acquired into a far superior product offering combined the business has ploughed its own furrow with minimum consultation with partners.

    Advice to Management

    Listen to the field it is a rudderless ship at the minute
