    I have been working at HERE Technologies full-time (More than 8 years)

    Pros

    Still in the process of determining direction which can lead to movement within IT

    Cons

    IT is still in the process of determining direction. Limp IT management does not make decisions. Huge work load imbalances, slow overcomplicated processes that not only slow but stop workflows. Management is focused on moving forward (bonus driven?) even though fundamental processes are in desperate need of repair.

    Advice to Management

    We can do anything you want, but if I have to create 5 requests for something simple and each request is allowed 20 days, then we are not going to accomplish much.

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

    Pros

    Still part of a small company culture in a company acquired by Nokia. Lots of opportunity to learn and grow in digital advertising.

    Cons

    Parent company came under enormous competitive pressure with the competition from companies like Apple and Samsung. Company chose to cut out much of the division to focus on core competencies.

    Advice to Management

    Focus on profitable areas of the business and rely on individual contributors to expand on the success of the business.

    It is located in Chicago, beautiful city. Promising company.

    I worked at HERE Technologies full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    Good people to work with, both in the department I worked in and in other departments. Good work environment overall and good benefits.

    Cons

    Management seems somewhat detached. The Nokia management that came with the purchase of HERE (and then didn't go to Microsoft) seem to just be interested in numbers and their spreadsheets and really don't seem to care about the employees. Seagull management!

    Advice to Management

    Treat the employees like humans. The managers that came from Nokia should look at the HERE (ex-Navteq) management to get an idea of what good managers are.

    Pros

    Company is at the top of Location and Mobility Management Technology

    Cons

    Needs to Invest more in technology and take bigger bets. Not everyone is on the same page in the company.

    Advice to Management

    Look more to the future and stand behind the decisions and work required to make it happen. Do not turn them into a couple month "fads".

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

    Pros

    1. Map software was very cool to work with
    2. People were helpful and kind
    3. Moved to full scale agile shop
    4. Provide good training on Agile

    Cons

    1. Management direction and company focus was all over the place. We moved from Navteq to Nokia to Here in about 1 year.
    2. Politics were pretty high in the company

    Advice to Management

    Navteq was good. The Nokia and Here movements were all over the place. The direction seems all over the place. The move to agile was done great...migration of 74 teams over 1 year.
