Software Support Technician (Former Employee) – Overland Park, KS – April 19, 2016
In sum, major advancements have occurred in the area of cultural competence among managed care plans, health insurers, and health care purchasers. However, there still exists strong resistance to investing in cultural competence as these entities search for evidence that supports a potential for quality
Customer service representative (Former Employee) – Kansas City, MO – April 2, 2016
I worked as a customer service Rep. Job duties are easy. Not a phycial job. Co workers are a treat to work with, got along with everyone. Got to talk to some interesting people. Some fun to talk to. Others not so much. Customers can be difficult to talk to.
Software Engineer II (Current Employee) – Olathe, KS – March 22, 2016
At Garmin, every engineer is treated equally. The best part about working at Garmin is the people that I work with. Garmin is located in Midwest and it is fair that say that everyone shares a sense of midwestern hospitality. The engineers that I work with on a daily basis are on of the smartest that I have ever met. Working on Garmin has made me a better Software Engineer

Typical 40 hours work week. Nice co-workers. Majority of engineers have a bachelor degree from universities in mid-west region. Management has open-door policy where complains can be addressed quickly. Friendly culture.
Product Support Specialist (Current Employee) – Olathe, KS – October 13, 2015
This company has a VERY strict schedule adherence policy.. If you are 1 second over your lunch or break your will be written up. Management is lacking, Depending on how lucky you get when you are placed on a team.
Garmin International Software Support Technician (Former Employee) – Olathe, KS – October 13, 2015
Great pay and great benefits. Sometimes the job is stressful but they make up for it with perks. The company is large so sometimes moral issues may get missed. The supervisors I had really cared and tried to be neutral and non biased at all times. Looking back, probably one of the best jobs I had. I am grateful to have been employed there.
Loader/Sorter (Former Employee) – Olathe, KS – October 11, 2015
Work was good. Got this job from a temp service. Worked for almost one year and got let go. There were only three of us that were temps. After being there for almost one year they let me go, I was fine with that because, I saw that they were hiring outsiders and that when I was ready to move on.
Highly engineering driven company that over and over misses out on amazing opportunities for growth due to lack of understanding that advertising sells. Word of mouth gets you the niche markets that Garmin has.
The people are great at Garmin, but the compensation hasn't kept up with the rest of the tech market. The culture of the company also changed over the years from one where employees were treated great to a culture where employees became more of a number. Cost cutting was cited frequently as a way to cut benefits (Charmin Ultra), despite Garmin having $2b in the bank.
Great people, low cost of living area
Not competitive compensation, benefits getting cut
