    Pros

    Great benefits and competitive pay.

    Very much an old style management mindset. Slow to adopt change and the best example of micromanagement I've ever witnessed.

    Negative Outlook
    Disapproves of CEO

    I have been working at HERE Technologies full-time for less than a year

    Pros

    Most of the people are very nice and the facilities team is great for morale type events. They allow for flexible work schedules and locations and are working hard to develop good D&I practices.

    Cons

    Leadership is disorganized with turnover and layoff being the one constant. It seems that the communications team and/or the way the company communicates is AWFUL.

    I worked at HERE Technologies full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    There’s a lot of free food.

    Cons

    There is no structure or accountability. There is a high turnover amongst leadership, continuous layoffs and terribly negative attitudes amongst colleagues as a result. Employees are not nurtured here. It’s hard to get your work done when you’re not nurtured and therefore not motivated. It’s hard to get your work done when everyone you work with is negative because of unclear priorities and politics. The company doesn’t seem to be heading in a clear direction which is masked by advertisements. As far as internal values, actions speak louder than word.

    Pros

    Decent pay and benefits. Interesting work and problems to solve. Great work/life balance.

    Cons

    The company has been trying for years to bring in quality management. No luck so far. On the bright side, the company is extremely top-heavy. Mind-boggling number of executives, brought in by the new CEO, coming and going at dizzying speeds, running the company into the ground. Directors and Senior Directors with 1-2 people "organizations." Managers and Senior Managers with no direct reports. Rampant imposture. New Chief Innovation Officer is the former Chief HR Officer. New Chief Data Officer is the former SVP of Strategy and IP Licensing (!?). Resources wasted on fantasy HR projects and university collaborations.
