Lack change management that effectively handles meeting mission goals.

Lack of cohesion between cross functional teams

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Pay your employees at the 25th to 50th percentile at least.
Stand by your mission instead of sticking to a date for hitting the Christmas buying frenzy.
Take a step back and make sure your current processes are really working as many are not and enact change

    I worked at Garmin full-time (more than a year)

    Pros

    Good level of work, very regular hours, great people to work with, everyone seems to have a positive view of the company. Provide the tools you need to design.

    Cons

    Don't value higher level degrees and try to do all development with new grads. This sometimes leads to mistakes which may be correct years later. Some issues with older engineers stopping innovations.

    Pros

    The only "Pros" this company had are no longer with the company. Gary and Min were some of the best people anyone could ever work for.

    Cons

    Management has no idea how to properly place people in areas that best suit them.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Pull your head out of the dark cavern it is in and see what is really going on in your company.
