Advice to Management

Take a step back and make sure your current processes are really working as many are not and enact change

    I worked at Garmin full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Good level of work, very regular hours, great people to work with, everyone seems to have a positive view of the company. Provide the tools you need to design.

    Cons

    Don't value higher level degrees and try to do all development with new grads. This sometimes leads to mistakes which may be correct years later. Some issues with older engineers stopping innovations.
