    Pros

    Many of the individual contributors are outstanding. The internal culture values friendliness and cooperation which makes for a pleasant place to work. Vacation and work/life policies are excellent, as are the salaries.

    Cons

    All major decisions are made in Europe and much of the decision making is informal; the formal process ratifies what has been decided over coffee. For any organization based elsewhere this is challenging.

    The map landscape and user expectations have been changing rapidly in the past few years and Nokia/HERE has struggled to keep up. Senior leadership is thrashing and it shows with frequent changes of direction and decisions that are reversed back and forth multiple times.

    Advice to Management

    Figure out what you need to do and do it. Stop changing direction every 6 months.


  3. Great pay, but you pay the price with lack of growth

    Pros

    Great pay and benefits, wonderful learning experience when traveling overseas to work with ODM/OEM

    Cons

    Glass ceiling for non-Europeans, Lots of meetings and talk with no true innovation, company is full of middle managers who micro-manage and need more training in effective management

    Advice to Management

    Good ideas and innovation flourish in an environment that is open, multicultural, and forward-thinking. Allow more autonomy. Embrace diversity.

    Pros

    High investment in R&D. Great place for scientists and engineers that want to patent their technology.

    Cons

    Software is just not a part of the company's DNA. Terrible place for scientists and engineers that do not want to patent their ideas.

    Pros

    Have worked for them since the Siemens days (28 yrs) and seen lots of merges and layoffs but they have made the right decisions at reducing the size, selling off divisions that would hold them back and removing people that aren't focused on improving the company and customer relations. Great people to work with; Innovative designs; Teamwork

    Cons

    Too many sub-contracted employees that don't have the same drive as badged employees

    Advice to Management

    Keep up the good work and drive us to number one. Stay customer focused and reward performing employees.
