I worked at HERE as an intern (Less than a year)

(Translated from English)

Pros

Tolle Leute, kleine produktive Teams, wenn nötig. Sehr international und dadurch interessant. Viel Zusammenarbeit zwischen den Abteilungen

Awesome people, small productive teams when necessary. Very international and interesting in that way. A lot of inter-departmental collaboration

Cons

Es scheint zur Zeit ein paar Richtungsänderungen bei Here Maps zu geben, deshalb war es etwas unklar, wie die Zukunft für manche Projekte aussehen würde.

There seems to be some changes in direction at Here Maps right now so it was a bit unclear what the future of some projects would be.

Advice to Management

Vertraut euren Ingenieuren mehr und last sie mehr "hacken".

Trust your engineers more and let them be more hack-y.

    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 !
