I have been working at NAVTEQ full-time (more than 3 years)

Pros

Great work-life balance,
non-stressful management,
latest technologies,
latest methodology (Agile)
Good benefits (8% 401k match with immediate vesting)

Cons

Too many meetings, integration with Nokia is a hit or miss
Agile is sometimes taken to an extreme
Very hard to get promoted or get a pay raise

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Give line managers an ability to reward employees monetarily and title-wise
Focus on producing quality software and not necessarily following a methodology
