    Current Employee - Software Developer in Montreal, QC

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

    Pros

    I started my career at Nuance as an intern and then I converted to full time. I worked with different teams, under different managements. It's the best place to learn at, great technology and super team mates that are always willing to help. Work from home as you want, some people work from home everyday and it's okay as long as you do your job perfectly. Depends on the divisions you work in, you may end up working with old boring technology OR the top trending ones. I have been into both and I'm glad as it gave me the opportunity to experience both.

    Cons

    Nothing in my opinion. All is great as far as I experienced
