    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 Management

    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.

    Pros

    - Good benefits (although this is changing in negative direction)

    Cons

    - Low pay
    - High expectations
    - Master/slave workplace
    - Dishonest management
    - Almost forced overtime
    - Boring office location
    - Uninteresting people
    - Depressing offices
    - Red tape
    - No growth opportunities

    It started like a dream job and management were saying the company appreciates the hard work. With time you realize all that is lies and empty promises. People are forced to work much overtime, being payed below the market average. At the end all are herded to a room where management says thank you and gives a con of free ice-cream. No matter how hard you work, there is one thing where you didn't give 110% and your boss will be covering entire time of your evaluating to justify the little raise you are about to receive. Very cheap company.

    I wouldn't leave a feedback but after switching the job, I am getting good bonuses, work twice less, getting paid twice more, living in much funner place and working with interesting people. I just feel I have to let others know about working at Garmin.
