Great learning experience.
Overseas Production Center Responsible (Former Employee) –  Fargo, NDMarch 26, 2013
Navteq provides an individual the opportunity to experience and learn in an ever increasing demand for up to date maps pertaining to GPS systems. It affords people the chance to work in a IT driven, multicultural environment. Navteq offers the chance to work within databases, learn brand new software, while maintaining a work friendly environment. The best part of the job, the experience you will learn from working with new technology and the training offered. The pros and cons like many organizations are the people you work with. Navteq has a great number of amazing individuals who make working for this company a pleasure most of the time. The negative benefits being: the lack of advancement and communication with the management teams which is the significant factor one should consider before looking for work with such a company.
Pros
solid benefits, workable scheduling, friendly people
Cons
lack of communication, poor management in some departments

A great experience
Advanced Geographic Analyst (Current Employee) –  St. Louis, MONovember 14, 2012
Following all new construction across western Illinois and northern Missouri is a task in itself, followed by field data collection to implement quarterly database upgrades. Creating new products in the navigation industry was a challenge, as our company continued to grow and lead in many navigational aspects across the globe. Travel could be long in duration at times, but I remain readily available to complete all company goals and objectives. I value all contributions and relationships from co-workers across the US, Mexico and Europe during the creation of project specific builds.
Pros
the mapping software is state of the art and as a result, the final products are a joy to customers.
Cons
long commute to work on a daily basis.

Traffic Operations Supervisor (Current Employee) –  Malvern, paJune 27, 2012
The company became more disorganized and poorly managed as it grew and got sold back and forth. The people I worked with directly were amazing. The job itself was a good job. It was fun and served an important purpose. Without working here I would not have been able to gain valuable experience to help me in my career path.
Pros
benefits, environment, co-workers
Cons
changing hands 3 times in 5 years, disorganization, communication, salary leadership

Flexible hours, great learning experience for managing and learning about global markets.
Project Responsible - OPCR (Former Employee) –  Fargo, NDApril 20, 2012
A typical day working at Navteq/Nokia requires extensive communication between internal and external departments involving database closure windows, project management, planning with project managers, field teams, vendors, and Overseas Production Centers (OPC's). Navteq affords a laid back approach from the traditional standards of 8-5 by allowing employee's to dictate their own work schedule with some exceptions. If I've learned anything through my experience within this company. It is the chance to have been given responsibility over managing multiple projects/teams and how to handle ever changing situations. I was fortunate in working with many fine men and women throughout my years at this company. If I have any negative things to say about this company, it is simply to state that those that truly strive to make this company the best in the market, often times are overshadowed, or tasked with too much responsibility and low wages for the work involved.
Pros
flexible hours, training, casual attire, world travel
Cons
low wages, excessive expectations, poor communication
