    I have been working at HERE Technologies full-time (More than a year)

    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!

    I have been working at HERE Technologies full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    I've been an engineer at HERE for about a year now, and have loved my experiences here -- learned a ton of AWS, front end engineering, getting in the weeds with jenkins, etc...

    Also have enjoyed the people here. Very intelligent, easy to get along with group who seeks to nurture new talent.

    Cons

    A lack of product management at the company has led to engineers taking on a wider role to fill those responsibilities. Would be nice to have more PM's to clearly define a vision, drive building so that engineers have more freed up time to simply develop.

    Advice to Management

    Hire more PM's! Otherwise, great job.

    Pros

    People are intelligent, respectful, and nice. Offices are comfortable and inviting. Upper management does a great job of welcoming feedback. Projects are challenging.

    Cons

    Open office layout so it can be noisy at times, but there are plenty of huddle rooms.

    I worked at HERE Technologies full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    The company was better before Edzard ruined it.

    Cons

    Incompetent CTO, non-technical motivated decisions and micromanagement. Underpay immigrants (Indians, Chinese). A manager is promoted after a crappy job, a "guilty" employee will be fired.

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

    Pros

    Flexible hours and a very relaxed, calm environment (most of the time). The management is somewhat flexible; if you have an emergency and you need to leave, they completely understand. As long as you don't abuse the relationship with managers, everything is actually pretty good. Most holidays are noticed, which is a plus.

    Cons

    No way to go higher up the company ladder at the moment. You pretty much stay with where you applied to, unless you put in much more extended effort than what would be normally asked of you. Very hard to stay positive about the work when it is based on proprietary software that only updates when changes are critically needed.

    Advice to Management

    Not sure what advice to give the management in this branch of the company. In my opinion, they are one of the better management I've experienced, its more the higher-ups above them that call the shots and say what matters.

    I worked at HERE Technologies full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Good environment, smart people, but everything has changed.

    Cons

    Pretty much everything has got worse since Nokia sold that part of its business. Income and benefits have been decreased significantly. That made many people to move to different companies including me.
