    Current Employee - Software Engineer II  in  Olathe, KS (US)
    Current Employee - Software Engineer II in Olathe, KS (US)

    I have been working at Garmin full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    I am given responsibility to complete projects in the way I see fit.
    Hours are flexible, within reasonable limits around core business hours.
    Can work from home in case of mild sickness or inclement weather instead of using vacation time.
    Managers are engineers promoted from within, so they understand the projects we work on and are very reasonable with deadlines and expectations.
    Development tools and hardware are kept up to date.
    Benefits are excellent for families.

    Cons

    Benefits are not as good for single employees.
    Compensation lags behind other software positions.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Focus on retaining good employees with higher compensation. Constantly training new engineers is not cheaper than keeping that hard-won experience with our technologies.
