    I worked at NAVTEQ full-time (more than an year)

    Pros

    Navteq is a modern company with good tech and a sensible core business. It's serious about training, is surprisingly relaxed and humane in its office culture, and actually makes an effort to keep the rank-and-file updated about the big picture in the company.

    Cons

    Senior management is absolutely clueless and sometimes unethical. If you're in production, expect to be asked to do things in the map database that could result in someone getting hurt. Projects are sometimes/often quixotic and irrational outside of core map maintenance. Quality control has been going down the toilet, because a lot of the production process is being shipped overseas to cheap workers who absolutely do not care at all about accuracy.

    Bottom line, this company makes GPS maps for cars. Upper management either doesn't seem to understand that or doesn't like it, and don't understand the limitations of GPS technology (I mean, really--a GPS mapping program for navigation inside skyscrapers? Do they not understand that skyscrapers absolutely destroy a GPS signal?).

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Train on your own production processes and serve a month or two as a floor engineer. The things that upper management commonly asks the floor staff to so are positively braindead.
