    I have been working at Garmin full-time for more than 10 years

    Pros

    Really good health benefits for pre 2013 hires. Conservative culture. Loyal to employees and will go long way to assist employees that need help. Looking for ways to improve morale. Offers good educational benefits.

    Cons

    The job opportunities once inside are limited because the size of the company. Engineering driven company has innovation in roots but that restricts inputs from other disciplines.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Embrace risk at all levels of the organization. The associates are going to get the company to the next level if you work with them.

    I have been working at Garmin full-time for more than 8 years

    Pros

    Neat products to work on.
    Not a lot of pressure.

    Cons

    Leadership training is practically non-existent for new managers, resulting in morale drop among employees.
    Revers age discrimination in promotions.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Invest in employee leadership training prior to promotion.
    Install professional development programs for engineers.
