Want to be stuck?
Technical Specialist II (Former Employee) –  Fargo, NDApril 11, 2018
Zero job advancement possibilities, extremely poor leadership all the way down to team leads. Only ones who know anything are the bottom dwelling grunts that make things happen and create the "vision"
Pros
foosball table, work from home all you want since managers dont care
Cons
everything except the foosball table

Poor Management
Engineer (Former Employee) –  Fargo, NDApril 7, 2018
The latest round of senior management is very removed from the rank and file. Brought on cronies from the last place they worked at instead of promoting from within.

Consolidating jobs to India
Production Engineer (Former Employee) –  USAMarch 27, 2018
Closing many locations and downsizing good paying jobs in the US and moving them all to India. Sad to see what was a great place to work become a corporate/financial run of the mill company.

Unstable Environment

Quarterly announcements of centralization to remote areas in India, making for an unstable, stressful work environment. Overall work environment is fine but budgets and jobs announced quarterly is stressful.

Interesting work, unstable environment
Operations Technician (Former Employee) –  Fargo, NDMarch 17, 2018
Work is pretty steady with occasional big push times. Learned lots of quality. Best part of job was the team- but this is dependent upon managers. I had a good manager that was able to balance the needs of company with the needs of the employee. The threat of restructuring or "transformation" looms large in the company. That said- HERE is morphing from location services/map company to a technology company rapidly.
Pros
Location
Cons
lack of advancement

QUALITY MANAGER I AND II (Former Employee) –  Fargo, NDMarch 13, 2018
A company focused on trying to be innovative while dealing with propriety software that was not built in such a way that it can easily adapt and change with the current times. This makes it difficult to compete yet the company has so much institutional knowledge.
Pros
Challenging and allows independence in your work
Cons
constant change and misalignment

Ok place to work, but unstable at times.
Technical Specialist (Former Employee) –  Fargo, NDFebruary 16, 2018
Work there could sometimes be repetitive, but sometimes challenging. The management was decent, would trust an employee to finish their work with little supervision. Advancement was difficult and seemed to go to favored employees. Culture had really declined in the years that I worked there due to rounds of layoffs, the company being bought and sold multiple times, unnecessary name changes, and the constant worry that you could be let go at any time.
Pros
Flexible work schedule
Cons
No sense of stability
