    More vacation time than average, 401k is really great, health insurance very cheap but good, just no sick days but can take PTO.

    Incredible benefits. Employee stock purchase options, unbeatable health care, 401k contribution matching, and massive discounts on products. They go out of their way to ensure healthy life balance. Education reimbursement, gym reimbursement, wholesale club reimbursement, even flight school reimbursement if it is in line with your position. Pay is great and judging by all of the individuals who have been with Garmin 10+ years, they take great care of their employees.

    This is the best benefits package overall I have seen. All useful benefits, and almost none of the gimmicks, like "accidental deathe insurance", or "cancer insurance".

    Health insurance is awesome. They literally pay more than $20,000 a year for me and my family. It's practically free as far as I'm concerned relative to what Garmin pays. My son has special needs and the package covers 100% of the cost. It is second to none and a big reason why I'm very motivated to stay here. Retirement with 401(k) match is superb. 75 cents to the dollar up to 10%. Employee Stock Purchase Plan is fabulous too. You make a minimum of 15% in a six month period investing up to 10% of your salary. You literally cannot lose -- it's guaranteed income. PTO is generous. You can bank up to 14 weeks. It grows, of course, the longer you stay. I'm making more than a half day per week now at 10 years. The employee discount is sweet. If you're into more expensive hobbies like fishing, you can save a ton. My family and friends love taking advantage of it -- I've blessed them a lot with our products. Long term disability insurance is nearly free, and they give basic life insurance for free (one year's salary).

    401K is unheard of: 5% automatic Garmin contribution, plus you can contribute up to 10% and Garmin will match at 75 cents on the dollar Health insurance has three plans, one is $0 per month. Vision paid for by Garmin. Dental around $3/month Product discounts, race entry, health/wellness benefits are great PTO starts at 17 days per year
