I have been working at HERE Technologies 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 Management

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

    I worked at HERE Technologies part-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    NAVTEQ is now NOKIA. They are organized and committed to technology, accuracy, and service. Their lay-off process was extremely humane and sensible.

    Cons

    NAVTEQ is now NOKIA. US operations have been centralized in Chicago. I honestly can't think of any other "cons" regarding this company.

    Pros

    Innovation is focused on to be a part of company culture (time set aside for employees to do what they want for the good of the company). This is an exciting place to work. They offer competitive pay and have a more interesting domain model, including mapping technologies and graphics that other companies in the Chicago area. The downtown office is also a great building in a great location. The company embraces everyone maintaining a very good work life balance - with decent vacation offered.

    Cons

    Merge with Nokia still not complete and the Nokia family as a whole still in time of transition with the future unknown. They do try to communicate their plans ahead of time where they can and inspire the workers - but it is hard to say if it will pay off or not.
