    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.

    No opinion of CEO

    I worked at Garmin full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    +Friendly +Lunchtime sports. Soccer, hockey, cycling. +Opportunities for growth as a naive intern. Was trusted with interesting coding tasks and offered valuable reviews & guidance. (likely team/time specific)

    Cons

    -Cochrane may be a negative for some. The commute is reasonably painless from NW Calgary. -As an intern, you still have to grind out tasks occasionally.

    I worked at Garmin full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    Picked orders on forklift. Easy work Great Benefits Adequate breaks Lots of Overtime - (Mandatory) 45-50 hour work week so ample opportunity for hours.

    Cons

    Hard work and productivity are not appreciated or encouraged. Everyone seems to be there just to get paid. Communication between management, and to all employees is astonishingly bad. No one knew what was going on, and procedures were constantly changing to the point that it effected production immensely. MUST be a yes man to move up in the Operations/Warehousing departments. If you are any kind of threat to... management you will be left alone, and that's a bad thing. I left because there was no advancement potential whatsoever. Might be different now but it was just ok, at best.

    Advice to Management

    Not everyone wants to work for low pay and long hours just because of the benefits. Listen to lower level employees, and especially coordinators to get the pulse of things. Don't play favorites to such an extreme degree.
