NUANCE - Who are they really? MarketLinc - Wolves in Sheep's Clothing? - Patriotwatch.com

Posted: May 02, 2013

HELP! Can we trust this company after all we've read?

 The following email was sent today to my Nonprofit's Board of Directors, MarketLinc and Nuance:

Nuance, MarketLine and PDN, Inc. Board Members;

After weeks of trying to reach Nuance Dragon Naturally Speaking Professional pre-order product support, I feel as though my efforts to help a hero and disabled active duty soldier failed miserably but ONLY when it came to this vital Nuance application.

We have the new Toshiba laptop, OS and latest Microsoft Office 2013 Plus suite.  http://patriotwatch.com/WW-K9-Christopher.htm

I did not ask for a donation; just a little expertise and any applicable military discount. I suspect Nuance has experts in meeting the needs of the severely disabled military personnel. We needed recommendations for the best fit on accessories to accompany Dragon Naturally Speaking Professional. (Headsets and Pointing devices for example)

After filling in forms on nuance.com and receiving no reply, I called several support numbers as well. I was transferred to someone named Molly in Public Affairs. Why I don’t know, but I left a message. That call too, was never returned.

Emilio del Canto: While you were helpful in getting some information to us, looking at your email address raises bigger issues for me. Why?

MarketLinc created a lift of 81% in revenue for Nuance  …  Overall website revenue increased by 17%. These results are significant because the target prospects, who entered the site unsure which product would best meet their needs, were converted by MarketLinc at a rate 142% higher than the control group. In addition, the target group was converted with a 78% higher order value than the control group that converted on their own.  + 78% Increase In Average Order Value

This all begs the question: Are we just another “test case” for your website and to insure we buy the most profitable product from MarketLinc and Nuance?  Because I respect Non-Disclosure Notices, I did not include the promised after purchase technical support Mr. del Canto referred to. Will it be as difficult to receive as pre-sales support?

Without speaking to Nuance directly, I have lost faith in them. I don’t feel they have met their 2004 Code of Business Conduct and Ethics when it’s been imposible to reach Nuance personnel by phone or email. We’ll wait for an answer. As for our Network Partners, buyer beware until we do.

[ In Reply To ..]
Had we found this website sooner, I think we'd have a better feel for Nuance. How one treats its employees, says a lot about ethics and trust.

Does anyone know the outcome of the lawsuit, filed in the U.S. District Court for Massachusetts, accuses Nuance and Ricci of unfair competition, interfering in its dealing with other firms and of commercial bribery in the pursuit of its fellow speech recognition software maker.

What Is The ATA? The Sound Like ADHI In Sheep's Clothing
Dec 28, 2010

I just saw a posting by the ATA.  They sound like ADHI (wolf) in sheep's clothing.  Their "dues" are also astronomical.   If these companies were legitimate they would charge "dues" more in focus with what a medical transcriptionist earns.  I for one cannot afford $100.00 a year for dues to any club, job or otherwise. If anybody not from ATA has more information on this groop please inform me. ...

Wmx/nuance Paycut Meeting,listen To Tape Shut Up Or QUIT, Nuance Attitude?
Dec 12, 2011

According to a poster below which has apparently already attended one of the payroll meetings (as the poster posted) for nuance they have decided to keep the incentive part of all of our pay going with an exception that now you have to have over the industry standard of 98% to get a production based incentive. In addition (if this poster is accurate) they have again cut the overall pay from 8 and 4 to 3 3/4 AND 7 1/2. This is nothing but a bunch of crapploa...an MT who is now getting ...

I thought they were 2 different services.  Everyone is buying out everyone, so who knows.  All the small companies have been merged I guess.  I thought Nuance was out of New York and were the primary with VR.  Maybe one has to keep up with the changes and be a member and pay the dues and go to the meetings with AAMT and be a CMT to keep up with the changes, even though you still get 4 cents. ...

Guess what Nuance/Nuisance, it will not work as your reputation has gone from bad to worse and we are now realizing that the We ...

WMX/Nuance Changes

If Webmedx does away with or changes their recently advertised "PRODUCTION BASED INCENTIVE" bonus and adopts the Nuance quality based bonus then this change may be considered by quite a few WMX employees as yet another cut in pay. I’m sure that there are quite a few MT’s currently at WMX that have a high QA average and are earning $300-$400 (some even more) in production incentive pay each pay period, which equates to $600-$800 per month. As an example, acco ...

Does Nuance Really Pay Everyone The Same Across The
Mar 17, 2012

Is this true? Because if so that means they dont take into consideration years of experience, opportunity for increase or nothing. Seems kind of hard to work for an obviously big and successful company that is only willing to pay their employees 0.41 cpl and thats it, no ifs, ands, or buts about it. I mean they dont come off to be the type of company that "cant" afford to give increases in pay to their transcriptionist. I heard that if you work from 10pm to 6pm you can make 0.46 cpl, bet ...

I received an incentive bonus this paycheck (for the first time ever). My QA score was 99.3%. So, I get an email today from my supervisor that my latest audit was only 98.2% and they are going to reaudit me in 2 weeks to see if my score is improving or if I need further disciplinary action. WTF? I've been with Nuance for 3 years and think it's time to jump ship. This company is messed up, and the QA is so inconsistent. ...

Nuance Pto??

In house just got outsourced to Nuance.  In our meeting, they said the PTO is 10 days total, which you have to use for holidays and sick time as well.  So, if you take all 6 holidays (if that is even possible), you get 4 days off a year?  Not even a week for vacation left over.  Someone asked if that changes with time of service and they said no, that will never go up.  ARE YOU KIDDING?  Is this what the rest of you get for PTO, or is this just something they have s ...

I have been with Nuance a few years.  I'm an MT.  I'm not the best MT out there, nor am I the worst.  I read the comments on these boards and my jaw is on the floor.  FYI, not everyone has the bad experiences that have been discussed on this site.  I can't account for the horrible things I hear people saying about Nuance, except to say if things are really that bad for you, maybe MT is not for you or Nuance is not a good fit for your career path. ...

Nuance QCs

I AM SO LIVID!  These QCs are unbelievable!  I used "and" instead of "the" and the QC marks me off for English misspelling/typo which is a 0.5 error instead of an English word misuse which is less at 0.25. Do you think "and" and "the" are typos?  I think not!  You see, this is evidence that they are being totally unfair and proof that they do not want anyone to make incentive!  This is my opinion!  Anything to bring your score down!  Man this pisses me off!&n ...

QC/QA Pay At Nuance

There is someone who claims to be a QC for Nuance and that they are only paid minimum wage for this position.  That is utter nonsense.  Why would any experienced MLS take a minimum wage job in the MT industry when you could make more than that on production easily.  If you are experienced enough to be in QC or QA then please don't lie to the rest of us and tell us that you only make minimum wage.   ...

Job With Nuance

I am really in need of a job, and because I like eScription and ExText for the most part, I thought Nuance was the most likely candidate. However, I'm hearing terrible things about them. I know some have good experiences and some bad, but I'm not in a position where I want to struggle through several months of working and then quit because there's no money in it. I did have an interview, and my red flag was that the interviewer said that they had 80 to 100% ESL on some ac ...
