Software Engineer II (Current Employee), Olathe, KSMarch 22, 2016
Pros: Ping pong during lunch
Cons: Non
At Garmin, every engineer is treated equally. The best part about working at Garmin is the people that I work with. Garmin is located in Midwest and it is fair that say that everyone shares a sense of midwestern hospitality. The engineers that I work with on a daily basis are on of the smartest that I have ever met. Working on Garmin has made me a better Software Engineer

Garmin International Software Support Technician (Former Employee), Olathe, KSOctober 13, 2015
Pros: Exellent pay and benefits
Cons: stressful at times.
Great pay and great benefits. Sometimes the job is stressful but they make up for it with perks. The company is large so sometimes moral issues may get missed. The supervisors I had really cared and tried to be neutral and non biased at all times. Looking back, probably one of the best jobs I had. I am grateful to have been employed there.

Loader/Sorter (Former Employee), Olathe, KSOctober 11, 2015
Pros: Employees were great
Work was good. Got this job from a temp service. Worked for almost one year and got let go. There were only three of us that were temps. After being there for almost one year they let me go, I was fine with that because, I saw that they were hiring outsiders and that when I was ready to move on.

Great products and engineers, lack of advertising prevents people from knowing about those products
Software Engineering Manager (Former Employee), Olathe, KSOctober 11, 2015
Pros: Great people, low cost of living area
Cons: Not competitive compensation, benefits getting cut
Highly engineering driven company that over and over misses out on amazing opportunities for growth due to lack of understanding that advertising sells. Word of mouth gets you the niche markets that Garmin has.

The people are great at Garmin, but the compensation hasn't kept up with the rest of the tech market. The culture of the company also changed over the years from one where employees were treated great to a culture where employees became more of a number. Cost cutting was cited frequently as a way to cut benefits (Charmin Ultra), despite Garmin having $2b in the bank.
