I have been working at Garmin full-time (More than 10 years)

Pros

Really good health benefits for pre 2013 hires. Conservative culture. Loyal to employees and will go long way to assist employees that need help. Looking for ways to improve morale. Offers good educational benefits.

Cons

The job opportunities once inside are limited because the size of the company. Engineering driven company has innovation in roots but that restricts inputs from other disciplines.

Advice to Management

Embrace risk at all levels of the organization. The associates are going to get the company to the next level if you work with them.

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

    Pros

    Monday through Friday schedule.
    Excellent health benefits.
    Great coworkers.
    No pressure to rush customers off the phone.
    No script to use for calls.

    Cons

    Few opportunities to do anything besides work at the call center once you start there.
    Very small annual pay increase.
    Low hourly pay.
    Sasquatch and a Garmin bonus have something in common.
    Repetitive tasks (Day mostly consists of coaching older people on how to use a computer).
    A lot of time is wasted looking for devices at your coworkers cubicles (Employees are only issued a few devices)
    Hold times often get very long and make customers irritable by the time they speak with you.

    Advice to Management

    Increase the pay and respect for Product Support Reps. Provide career opportunities so that Product Support can be a launching pad at Garmin and not a dead end road. Find positive things to recognize employees for.
