Doesn't Recommend
Neutral Outlook
No opinion of CEO

I worked at Garmin full-time (More than 5 years)

Pros

- Good benefits (although this is changing in negative direction)

Cons

- Low pay
- High expectations
- Master/slave workplace
- Dishonest management
- Almost forced overtime
- Boring office location
- Uninteresting people
- Depressing offices
- Red tape
- No growth opportunities

It started like a dream job and management were saying the company appreciates the hard work. With time you realize all that is lies and empty promises. People are forced to work much overtime, being payed below the market average. At the end all are herded to a room where management says thank you and gives a con of free ice-cream. No matter how hard you work, there is one thing where you didn't give 110% and your boss will be covering entire time of your evaluating to justify the little raise you are about to receive. Very cheap company.

I wouldn't leave a feedback but after switching the job, I am getting good bonuses, work twice less, getting paid twice more, living in much funner place and working with interesting people. I just feel I have to let others know about working at Garmin.

    I worked at Garmin as an intern (Less than a year)

    Pros

    My team was fantastic, and we spent time together outside of work right away. The casual atmosphere didn't prevent things from getting done, and I felt like my team members were very competent while not being over-the-top serious.

    Pay was satisfactory, provided housing was mediocre.

    Cons

    Kansas isn't my first choice of location. Other than that, though, it was a really good experience and I'm considering returning there for a full-time position.
