I have been working at Garmin full-time (more than 5 years)

Pros

Monday through Friday schedule.
Excellent health benefits.
Great coworkers.
No pressure to rush customers off the phone.
No script to use for calls.

Cons

Few opportunities to do anything besides work at the call center once you start there.
Very small annual pay increase.
Low hourly pay.
Sasquatch and a Garmin bonus have something in common.
Repetitive tasks (Day mostly consists of coaching older people on how to use a computer).
A lot of time is wasted looking for devices at your coworkers cubicles (Employees are only issued a few devices)
Hold times often get very long and make customers irritable by the time they speak with you.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Increase the pay and respect for Product Support Reps. Provide career opportunities so that Product Support can be a launching pad at Garmin and not a dead end road. Find positive things to recognize employees for.

    I worked at Garmin as an intern (less than an year)

    Pros

    My team was fantastic, and we spent time together outside of work right away. The casual atmosphere didn't prevent things from getting done, and I felt like my team members were very competent while not being over-the-top serious.

    Pay was satisfactory, provided housing was mediocre.

    Cons

    Kansas isn't my first choice of location. Other than that, though, it was a really good experience and I'm considering returning there for a full-time position.
