    Positive Outlook

    I worked at TomTom full-time for more than 10 years

    Pros

    I loved my colleagues at the office. Lebanon hiring for engineering is well-informed and collaborative, meaning that you will find colleagues who really are world class. In addition, the community values run strong. With a 5-day Community Paid Leave per year, plus regular drives to help the poor or homeless, you'll find plenty of outreach opportunities. The office is also very keen on celebrating every milestone, meeting (usually) once a month for company sponsored drinks and snacks, and committed to regular employee updates. That plus the opportunity to work on world-class technology, there's little more you could ask for!

    Cons

    There are some downsides to being part of a multinational company. Intercontinental office "strategic competition" to secure the best technology responsibilities is a real but rarely acknowledged issue. I have to say, this occasional downside is matched by the strong European ethic to look out for the best interests of the employee.

    I worked at TomTom full-time for more than 5 years

    Pros

    Products are very competitive. Comp plans are very competitive and sales people can do very well here. The international culture is great. The sales tools provided are very efficient.

    Cons

    Comp plans for sales teams can be challenging for some, depending upon territory and products assigned.

    I worked at TomTom full-time for more than 10 years

    Pros

    Interesting technological potential. Work life balance, community service opportunities.

    Cons

    Corporate vision is reactive and myopic, leading to regular departmental reorganizations (and associated rounds of layoffs). At the local level, weak management and rampant nepotism. Below average salary opportunities.

    Pros

    The US offices have great people and the company does provide great benefits.

    Cons

    No vision for the future. Always following competitor's lead. Amsterdam HQ really doesn't give autonomy to US HQ. They don't realize doing business in the US is different from doing business in Europe.

    I worked at TomTom full-time for more than 8 years

    Pros

    The health care and 401(k) benefits are good, opportunities to travel, environment is not competitive, relatively stable, decent "resume builder" type job, some managers allow flexible and remote work for better work/life balance, some career opportunities if you put in enough time.

    Cons

    - Massive cultural differences across offices (even located in the same country) - Embarrassing lack of diversity at nearly every level (except the bottom) - Pay/compensation is not competitive - Environment is not innovative - Talent and high value employees are overlooked in favor of those willing to lock lips to rears or shout over others - Senior management doesn't appear to have a good grasp on operational oversight or technology...or leadership, for that matter - Toxic culture that is painfully outdated. Total old boys club.
