Dissatisfied

Software Engineer (Former Employee) Olathe, KS (US)

Pros- Good benefits (although this is changing in negative direction)

Cons- Low pay
- High expectations
- Master/slave workplace
- Dishonest management
- Almost forced overtime
- Boring office location
- Uninteresting people
- Depressing offices
- Red tape
- No growth opportunities

It started like a dream job and management were saying the company appreciates the hard work. With time you realize all that is lies and empty promises. People are forced to work much overtime, being payed below the market average. At the end all are herded to a room where management says thank you and gives a con of free ice-cream. No matter how hard you work, there is one thing where you didn't give 110% and your boss will be covering entire time of your evaluating to justify the little raise you are about to receive. Very cheap company.

I wouldn't leave a feedback but after switching the job, I am getting good bonuses, work twice less, getting paid twice more, living in much funner place and working with interesting people. I just feel I have to let others know about working at Garmin.

No, I would not recommend this company to a friend
