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

    Pros

    Relaxed dress code and attitude. Nice people. Many PHD’s (not sure this is a plus though) and interesting product. But this doesn’t make up for the cons unfortunately.

    Cons

    Not a place you want to join. People work in silos. Managers go to meetings to update on behalf of the developers. Everybody is over-allocated (3 times their capacity) so when they deliver it’s often low quality and a few quarters behind. Everybody knows it so they pad their estimates... still no work life balance , nobody cares about employee satisfaction... managers make decisions without consulting anybody...

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

    Pros

    Nuance is the speech recognition leader. Nuance would like to be a major player in the artificially intelligent field. This companies invests a lot in R&D. The jobs in SW engineering are very fun and stimulating. The newest and coolest programming technology is used e.g. Spring Boot and micro services. Even if it is a large company, there exist many little independent departments working on a plethora of SW products.

    Cons

    To stay number one in a market also comes with sacrifices. Each department has to demonstrate high-performance otherwise there can be cuts.

    Pros

    - Promotes team work and multidisciplinary project teams - Very competent and motivated people - International outreach with customers and colleagues around the world - Offers various levels of responsibilities, from entry level to director. - Cool technologies - Great professional services organisation - Lots of customers!

    Cons

    While working with international teams is a plus, it may also be more difficult for some since they will at times interact more often virtually with remote colleagues than in person with colleagues in the same location.
