    I worked at Garmin as an intern for less than a year

    Pros

    My team was fantastic, and we spent time together outside of work right away. The casual atmosphere didn't prevent things from getting done, and I felt like my team members were very competent while not being over-the-top serious.

    Pay was satisfactory, provided housing was mediocre.

    Cons

    Kansas isn't my first choice of location. Other than that, though, it was a really good experience and I'm considering returning there for a full-time position.
