    Pros

    Exciting company with an exciting vision.... Almost like working at a startup venture. HERE is quickly positioning to be the reality index for the world, an has brought in a new highly qualified and highly energetic sales mgmt team with their focus on the Customer. Huge strides have been made in just a few months during our transformation. My customer satisfaction is at an all time high and my customers have expressed how impressive HERE is. Our corporate culture is extremely postitive with a "win together" approach. Last but not least, the most valuable asset HERE has is its unending wealth of brilliant people.

    Cons

    Transformation blessing and curse. Just like any technology company things move fast and even faster when you are in the midst of transformation.

    Advice to Management

    Keep going you are doing great!

    Pros

    Interestring Projects: self driving cars, 3D maps, machine learning
    Working on a product (Open Locatino Platform) for the future, innovating
    Progam where you can work on a project ouside your team or even teams field to help other team on theirs. Company encourages this strongly, up to 20% of your time can be spent on it

    Cons

    Tight on money
    Managements goals unlear
    Product (Open Location Platform) is making a bet that self driving cars will be everywhere soon. If not it might be a waste project

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

    Pros

    I've really come to appreciate how flexible our company is in terms of working hours, work from home, time off (we just switched to a new unlimited time off policy which has been great). In speaking with other friends they are quite blown away by the work/life balance that HERE provides. Also, I feel as though the company is really trying to tackle some hard and complex problems which I appreciate. It's not always easy and some projects can be quite grueling, but I'd rather work on something meaningful and challenging.

    Cons

    The company has gone through a lot of transformation especially since we were sold from Nokia a few years ago. This has caused a bit of anxiety but I do think the leaders are genuinely trying to figure how to set us up for success going forward. Personally, I'd rather work for a tech company that's willing to iterate and make changes to adapt than one that does nothing and withers away.

    Advice to Management

    Keep listening to your employees and try to keep communication as constant and clear as possible.

    I worked at HERE Technologies full-time

    Pros

    Benefits were good until they slashed 401k in half. I enjoyed working with my colleagues very much.

    Cons

    I worked here for a number of years and while change is generally good for companies, the changes made here were as if they couldn't make up their mind. After changing values/culture 3 different times in a 5yr span, it starts to becomes the thing you don't value. Employees are overworked. Top management is so concerned with strategy they have no clue what their employees do. They don't value their employees, nor are they able to celebrate their achievements.
    I speak from my experiences, so other teams in the company may be better.

    Advice to Management

    Listen to your employees more.

    Pros

    Great benefits, travel opportunities, room for growth

    Cons

    The communication is supposedly top-down but a lot of information gets spread around the way gossip and rumors would. Definitely needs to be an update in transparency. Smaller offices are left out of the loop or even forgotten when it comes to "company-wide" changes.

    Advice to Management

    Being more open and honest with employees working under you would help change the culture of rumors and miscommunication.
