    I worked at Garmin

    Pros

    They really care about the employees. They have the best benefits I have been able to find in a company yet.

    Cons

    Human Resources is not the greatest. They can be extremely unprofessional. Everything else about the company makes up for what they lack.

    I worked at Garmin

    Pros

    1. Lifetime employment if you are an engineer
    2. Nice benefits package compared to other hi-tech companies
    3. Focus on work-life balance

    Cons

    1. Opportunity to grow is absent if you are not an engineer
    2. Accountability resides with C-Level mgt only. Senior/Middle-managers are "nice people" and "yes-men".
    3. Auto business has no forward looking vision or growth plan

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    1. Focus on people development. Implement leadership development program and provide opportunities for growth to ambitious people.
    2. Give freedom to VPs and Directors to make decisions, spend money and manage budgets. Reward / hold them accountable for their actions.
    3. Move away from "core business hours" concept. It is not in tune with the international culture of hi-tech. Immigrants and single people are willing to put in more hours and be super productive. Exploit that potential.
