    I worked at HERE Technologies full-time

    Pros

    Was once a wonderful company to work for who truly took care of their employees from top to bottom. Embraced work/life balance in general. Great benefits, overall enjoyable culture and nice people to work with/for.

    Cons

    In recent years HERE had not been the company that it once was. Since being owned by a consortium of Euro automobile manufacturers the pressure has been mounting and it has altered the work culture drastically, creating a more stressful environment and led to many layoffs in recent years keeping many employees on edge unfortunately.

    Pros

    Amazing atmosphere, great place to work. I really appreciate all the coworkers on working together and innovating as a team

    Cons

    I really cannot think of any cons at the moment. Once I arrived as an intern, I was immediately impressed on the technology and opportunities of this organization

    Pros

    HERE is leader in navigation and location databases. Deep roots in car navigation. Fully engaged in emerging automated driving and "internet of things". Lots of very challenging problems to solve; from detecting world change in real-time to pushing those changes through to customers with minimal latency.

    Cons

    Over last 5-10 years volatility in top management over the years & widely distributed growth through acquisition. But current leadership of last two years is doing a very good job to bring focus, direction, and alignment.

    I worked at HERE Technologies full-time (More than 8 years)

    Pros

    It used to be about the benefits. However, they have cut them drastically for US employees; specifically 401K and PTO.

    Cons

    Transition fatigue and unrealistic 'vision' from senior management. The majority of them work from home the majority of the time and are out of touch with their employees.

    I have been working at HERE Technologies full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    Flexible work schedule. Excellent co-workers. Interesting work. Decent compensation. Easy commute. Lots of company wide communication (ie transparent about what is happening in business and industry.)

    Cons

    Plenty of restructuring. It is part of the tech landscape unfortunately. Since 2016 HERE has been in an era of transformation from geospatial data and solution provider to developer of technologies to capture the automated driving, IoT, and related markets resulting in numerous cuts and closures. Lack of career advancement in Fargo beyond just doing it yourself. Lack of recognition for dependability and commitment.

    Advice to Management

    The continual cycle of restructuring and transformation might get the right product output but sacrifices a dependable workforce. It would be ideal if there could be more balance to win together.
