    I worked at Garmin full-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    Typically decent working hours with a lot of intelligent people.
    Recently added more opportunities to advance.
    Good healthcare. Friendly working environment. Team leads are promoted from engineers who typically know the products well.

    Cons

    Managers are frequently promoted from engineering staff, but are not always the most interested in actually being a manager. At the time upper management did not appear to care that compensation was below average for the area. This has since been adjusted.
