    I have been working at HERE Technologies full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Good location
    Get to work on cool technologies
    Smart and friendly employees
    Decent Benefits (although being reduced every year)
    Decent work-life balance

    Cons

    Lack of direction from senior leadership
    Employee morale is low and going lower due to constant re-orgs and layoffs
    Arrogant and directionless senior leadership
    The company inexplicably started losing money after being sold off with new managment

    Advice to Management

    The reviews in US are telling. The employees are your most valuable assets. Keep them happy and the company will achieve great results. Do not be patronizing and spin BS to your employees. Get rid of deadwood but be very careful of doing so, because it affects the morale. A lot of good talented employees are leaving due to these issues.

    I worked at HERE Technologies full-time

    Pros

    Flexible schedule and generally positive atmosphere. Products are exciting and the company has a great energy overall.

    Cons

    Company undergoes constant reinventions and reorganizations, sometimes seemingly pointlessly, resulting in frequent reshuffling of job roles and responsibilities. The result is often a waste of human capital.

    Advice to Management

    Reorganize surgically, keeping experienced people where they are rooted when possible.

    Pros

    Casual environment
    Good pay
    Ability to self-direct

    Cons

    They're sending jobs to India as other companies are bringing them back.
    Benefits are no longer better than average, in fact, they are scaling back, because "we're giving more than other companies, so we are scaling back". Yeah, that was one of the things that made it a great place to work. HERE used to be an exceptional company, now it's as if management wants no more than to be average.

    Advice to Management

    You have a "vision". I get it. It's a good vision, but you're not executing in the present. Start executing now, and start making decisions that aren't solely focused on the bottom line, or you'll never get to where you want to be in the future.

    Every morning we have to do a scrum, reporting previous day's work. This is kinda waste of time.

    Pros

    Location of Chicago office and domain attracts talent.

    Cons

    Little guidance on improving your career makes it hard for entry level engineers to move up the career path.
    Would expect a little more good senior engineers, but found it missing.
    Lot of ambiguity in projects.
    Not ambitious enough in a ambitious sector.
