    Pros

    Summer hours, good coworkers in some departments, great learning experience

    Cons

    The management, depending on your department, can be extremely cliquey/ they make it known if you're not a favorite.

    I worked there for less than a year and was given lots of projects that were not 'intern' projects. That can be a good thing, but they underpaid me and overworked me. You're a 'part of the team' when they need to give you a big workload... But in all other aspects they made it clear that you're just an intern. I was a FT regular employee when they needed me to be, but I wasn't given the respect of one. They gave me a bad reference which was probably the main reason I was unemployed without pay for 4 months.

    They ended my internship without notice, not even notice to the HR department. But I was planning on leaving because if you're not like them, youll never be on the team.

    Advice to Management

    Fix your management and up your pay

    Pros

    Good location, some good employees, employee outings to build relationships.

    Cons

    Very cliquey and you can tell that there is favoritism
    Management focuses their details on your mistakes instead of your triumphs
    You will know if you dont fit in after a month there and it will be unbearable if you arent accepted.

    Advice to Management

    Focus on your employees and their happiness and more goals will be met with a smile

    I have been working at TomTom (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Began my career at TomTom as a sales intern, but was hired full-time just 5 months later. As an intern, I was given incredible independence and autonomy to complete my job in the best way that I saw fit. My manager gave great advice, supported me along the way, and was a huge advocate for me to get a full-time position. And one of the best benefits of TomTom are summer hours!

    Cons

    No standing desks and the office is in Burlington.

    Pros

    Good people, good perks. Off site meetings and team building events were always a plus. Office was also modern and clean.

    Cons

    severe lack of leadership, "late to the game" with product road map and roll out.

    Advice to Management

    stop trying to build the 'better mouse trap". Invest in R&D, expand in other B2B market segments that can leverage location intelligence

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

    Pros

    Great people and location (Lebanon, NH). Product and technology was exciting and fun to work on. Travel opportunities to other global offices.

    Cons

    Significant competitive challenges in the space (Google, Apple, Microsoft) and continuing advances in technology have caused significant upheaval in the Personal Navigation Device market, but TomTom seems to be figuring out their strategy and moving forward.

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

    Pros

    Lots of very smart people, good communication and rapport across departments. Interesting new products on the B2B/B2G side. I miss working there.

    Cons

    I worked on the B2B side and the resources weren't there like they are on the consumer side. I've since heard that has changed to come extent.

    Advice to Management

    Listen internally more. When I was there there were a lot of people who were warning of the impending decline of PND sales that occurred from 2010 - 2012. If the leadership team listened more attentively, the amount of layovers, restructuring, and transition the company went through might have been mitigated.
