    Pros

    Great team that is willing to invest time to train their editors to do the best job possible. It can get busy but there are reasonable expectations in terms of work load.

    Cons

    The hours (not a traditional 9-5, shifts are either early morning, afternoon or overnight). I also get the impression that there is little room for advancement

    I worked at HERE Technologies full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    It was great working in a dynamic, matrixed environment where it was encouraged to work up to C-level to complete initiatives. Everyone encourages collaboration across the board. HERE has a group of very smart people who leave their egos at the door.

    Cons

    Old-school Navteq leadership were set in their ways and were resistant to making changes that would benefit the business.

    Advice to Management

    Senior management should be more flexible and open to changing or streamlining processes that will benefit both the internal and external client-facing experience.

    Pros

    The work is interesting and dynamic. The company does not pigeon hole employees. It is relatively simple to move form group to group and role to role

    Cons

    Sometime the constant change can be overwhelming. This is not the place to work if you are looking for consistency

    I worked at HERE Technologies full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    I had a great opportunity to stretch my career and take on new technical challenges. My team worked on a mapping platform which had great promise and great market reach/partnerships.
    Growth opportunity
    Travel to intriguing places
    Challenging work

    Cons

    Some of the leadership of Nokia caused some issues. Focus on Windows platform phones and not shifting to Android sooner cost the company severely. No real growth opportunities there.

    Advice to Management

    Need to be more nimble in this day and age. The old days of patent hoarding no longer equates to a business model. New age business opportunities mixed with older methodology and corporate strategy send a mixed message both outward and to the rank and file.

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

    Pros

    Problems we are working on are very interesting. Mind blowing amounts of data, hight loads, algorithms that make you say wow when you see the result. This company is really making a difference in the world, working on things only 2-3 other companies can do.

    Cons

    Culture and professional level depend on particular team. There are super boring old schoolers maintaining legacy projects and producing spagetti C++ or very nice and energetic teams which are fighting for code quality and CI/CD, moving company forward...
    High management is busy with constant reorgs, jumping from position to position, however nothing really changes... High goals are not clear, however there is hope that new CEO and his team are doing the right job this time...

    Advice to Management

    sit down and come up with clear plan
