    I worked at Garmin full-time (less than an year)


    They hire anyone technical minded


    Low pay, whole department is treated as 'they guys at the bottom' - especially by HR, management is made of people that survived in Garmin for many years so it's negative selection in it's finest (good people left long ago)

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    quit and hire real management

    Doesn't Recommend
    Negative Outlook
    No opinion of CEO
