Does Nuance offer health savings accounts?

Pros

PTO, work/life, day to day are all great. Full of smart people willing to help. Everyone is real. The technology we have is cutting edge, which is exciting. New CEO seems to really want to implement a culture, something that was lacking with the previous CEO. I think it's beginning to take shape.

Cons

401k was recently increased to 3% match (previously 2%). Still lower than similar tech companies. This, along with limited HDHP healthcare (that costs quite a lot) is unattractive. A lot of employees are remote, there aren't many (if any) opportunities to meet face to face with colleagues.

Advice to Management

Continue with your strategy for adding culture. Please carve out more budget for extracurricular, or onsite visits geared towards team building. This will help drive your culture initiative.

What is the retirement plan like at Nuance?

Pros

Pay was hourly when I joined and that was good.

Cons

I took a job here because they paid an hourly wage - unusual in the MT business. The benefits got more and more expensive, and the 401k matching was paltry. Management was ineffective and uncommunicative. At one point I asked for a list of clients I'd be working on, and was told I couldn't have it because NO ONE HAD THE FULL LIST. Just awful. I went through the return to production pay (which was bad), and the transition to fishbowl every-day auditing (which was bad), and the horrible compensation grid where if you made a couple of mistakes you went to minimum wage for two weeks (obviously bad), and the firing people and refusing to tell anyone if they were still or not, and the complete mismanagement of the schedule that left people either with no work and not getting paid or too much work and being penalized for not doing it, and the benefits going up and up and up, and the utter refusal of management to clarify expectations, and on and on and on... and for my trouble I was demoted and then laid off.

Advice to Management

Pay your employees fairly. Go back to hourly. Stop constantly auditing. Learn transparency. Hire effective managers. Give your employees the information they need to do the job. Learn to manage a schedule so people have work. Stop treating your employees like they're nefarious criminals out to steal from you. Improve communication. TREAT YOUR EMPLOYEES LIKE HUMAN ADULTS.
