Doesn't Recommend
Neutral Outlook
No opinion of CEO

I have been working at Garmin full-time (More than 5 years)

Pros

The benefits package is great; one of the best I've ever had.

Cons

- The product support division carries a virtual life sentence. Very few people get to move out of the department or get meaningful promotions.
- Moral is almost nonexistent.

Advice to Management

Listen! The employees convey the thoughts and opinions of the customers. When you ignore the employees, you are effectively ignoring the customers.
