    Approves of CEO

    I worked at Garmin for less than a year

    Pros

    - Fewer team members working efficiently as a team. - Eager to teach the technical as well as non-technical aspect to a fresher/trainee. - Management is quite supportive in getting newly recruited employees to learn the deeper intricacies of the industry.

    Cons

    -Basically hardly any cons whatsoever.

    Advice to Management

    - Over time, more people could be hired to handle various operations, as the company grows further in India.
