    I have been working at Garmin as an intern for less than a year

    Pros

    Garmin's work environment is second to none. Casual dress code and associates really love their jobs. The people are very friendly and easy to work with.

    Cons

    Lack of structure and organization. Garmin seems to not know where they want to go with the company. They are always playing catch up. (Ex. GoPro vs Virb or FitBit vs VivoFit)

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    There needs to be more time training for the job. Being thrown into the fire can be a good experience but also very frustrating at times.
