Cons

- Mangel an Aufstiegschancen - die Gehälter sind eher Durchschnitt, die Kollegen auch - eigene Ideen werden meistens ignoriert - das Management hat eher durchschnittliche Führungsfähigkeiten - man diskutiert lieber als zu arbeiten - keine klare Rollenzuteilung, kein richtiges technisches Feedback

- lack of career opportunities - salaries are rather average, so are the colleagues - own ideas will mostly be ignored - management has rather average leading skills - discussion is preferred over doing the work - no clear role assignment, no real technical feedback

Advice to Management

feuert die Minderleister (einschließlich Manager) und bringt die Gehälter auf ein konkurrenzfähigeres Niveau (das wird auch die Leistung verbessern)

fire the underperformers (including managers) and bring salaries to a more competitive level (this will also improve performance)

    Pros

    Arbeit und Kollegen waren nett Internationale Teams Schönes Büro in Frankfurt, keine Kuben Organisierte Projekte Nicht zu viel Bürokratie

    work and colleagues were nice International teams. nice office in frankfurt, no cubes organized projects not too much bureacracy

    Cons

    Die Arbeit ist bedeutungslos. Man versucht, Google zu überholen, ohne neue Ideen, nur durch Nachmachen. Die Gehälter sind sehr niedrig und nicht angemessen verteilt. Die Idee ist, vom reinen Kartendienst auf eine Dienstleistung zu wechseln, aber dafür braucht man Innovation. Nur zu kopieren, ist sinnlos.

    work is meaningless, trying to outrun google without new ideas just imitating. salaries are very low and not properly distributed. the idea is to switch from pure mapping to services, but that implies innovation, just doing the copycat is pointless

    Advice to Management

    Denkt über realistische Ziele nach

    think about realistic goals

    Pros

    J'ai eu une bonne expérience de travail. Environnement très intéressant et stimulant, avec une exposition internationale. Rencontrez des gens très intelligents.

    Had a good working experience. Very interesting and challenging environment, with international exposure. Meet some really smart people.

    Cons

    Très bien jusqu'à ce que Nokia arrive dans le portrait. Perdant vraiment beaucoup en essayant de s'intégrer dans le système de Nokia au lieu de laisser ce qui marchait pour nous.

    So good until Nokia came into the picture. Losing so much trying to fit into Nokia's system instead of keeping what was working for us.

    Advice to Management

    Bonne chance !

    Good luck !
