Featured Review

Current Employee - Project Manager

I have been working at Black & Veatch full-time for more than 10 years

Pros

Opportunity to grow, constantly trying to improve

Cons

too many managers, top heavy

Current Employee - Software Engineer II

I have been working at Garmin full-time for more than 3 years

Pros

- Multiple interesting/challenging projects for embedded software development provide many opportunities to learn a lot and in a short time. - Good leadership who is supportive of their engineers. -... Great work culture and acceptable work life balance (some projects would demand more time and effort). - People are always willing to provide help. This is especially great for young engineers who are fresh out of college. - Great benefits - 401k, medical insurance. Pay is competitive to other companies in the area.

Cons

- Back to back projects can sometimes cause engineers to burn out. - Pay may not be competitive to tech companies in general.
