    I have been working at Garmin full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    - Many engineering departments get to work on very cool consumer products.
    - The company is very diversified, allowing it to withstand the instability caused by rapidly changing technology.
    - Ample opportunities to switch departments.
    - 100% medical coverage at nearly no cost ( $10 copay)
    - Johnson County is an absolute 5-star place to raise a family. Schools are fantastic.
    - Decent PTO including standard holidays.
    - Work/Life balance is fantastic in most departments.

    Cons

    - Engineers tend to be promoted to management with little or no management training. Many end up trying it out, don't like it, and return to engineering.
    - Can be slow to adopt new tools and refactor existing code base, which often gets re-used without much improvement.
    - Engineering advancement track is in its infancy and thus has yet to be proven effective.

    Advice to Management

    Continue efforts to hold on to top talent.
