I worked at TomTom full-time for more than 3 years

Pros

Nearly all TomTomers are nice persons, even them who are not quite as capable as some other. That said an average TomTom person is fairly good in what she or he does. The company has put effort hiring good people who can able to do stuff.

Cons

The gang of four, or five, at the very top of organization are weakest link of the whole company. They are way too involved in details, and overlook responsibility to steer fragments to be fully intact.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Encouragement to compete internally is simply stupid idea.

    I worked at TomTom full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    - good work/life balance, very little push from the management
    - mostly nice people and good atmosphere
    - good office location (near Amsterdam CS)

    Cons

    - middle management is screwed up, they hire some random people which quite often never managed software projects before
    - not developer-oriented culture
    - no parking for cars

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Get rid of that thick middle management layer, empower developers more.
