Pros: Vacation, Downtown Office
Cons: Extremely political, management performance is a dice roll, short term vision, high attrition level
Nuance will make you work with both the best and the worse people you'll ever meet.
The technology and the research behind the speech recognition engine is extremely smart. The people behind it are some of the brightest in the business. This is where the fun resides.
Unfortunately, the management leading this is very sub-par. Poor vision, focused on the short term. From budgets to staffing to product strategy...all of it goes through an extremely diligent screening process only to be tossed the window at the first quarter that numbers aren't favorable. There is no long term strategy to improve the internal product line...only to acquire new sellable products and shoehorn them in the portfolio.
It also does not matter if the product bought will work with a long term strategy. It will get get shoehorned.
Typical release of products is either extremely short (making you wonder how it was developed and tested) or extremely long (making you wonder if the staff needed to execute fit the expectations) but none of the projects get delivered on-time.
For your career's sake, avoid this place. It's unfortunate because it could be a gem...but it only is a polished rock.
