    Pros

    Great products, everything is done in house which makes outsourcing not such a constant worry. Overall a very satisfying place to work.

    Cons

    Location and sometimes hours can be long. Benefits I feel are above average. everyone is very nice and helpful. Interview process to offer is very long.

    Advice to Management

    I think management does a fine job where I am at Garmin. I think they are involved in your career path but there are times that the company may not have the position to fit that path.
