    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.
