Hard to get a job there. Great company to work for.

Software Engineer (Former Employee)
Olathe, KS

I worked at Garmin full-time for more than 3 years

ProsVery vibrant and goal driven organization.
Incredible summer picnics, winter dinners, and lots of social events.
The type of work changed all the time and was very rewarding.
Parking garage (car doesn't get sun fade or snow).
Lots of "new hire" kids out of college kept the culture young and fun.

ConsFrankly, it's hard to stand out with so many extremely smart people. I know that sounds self-serving but I consider myself a pretty ambitious and dedicated worker, and I would rate myself an average performer on my team at Garmin. This combined with low turnover also hinders advancement.
The pay was under industry but the health and other benefits made up for it.

Advice to Senior ManagementYour job is to find new ways to leverage the incredible work force you've built--keep doing it.

Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend
