Garmin did a great job of giving me work that seemed significant and made sure I wasn't just wasting my time doing work no one else wanted to do.

Downers

I only wish I could just keep working here full time, but they'll only extend a full time offer upon completing my bachelor's degree. I disagree with this because I feel I have displayed my ability to contribute, and school is expensive.

Advice to Potential Interns

Garmin is a great place to work, you're lucky to have the chance to intern here.

Interns receive many of the same benefits that full time employees do. The work is very challenging but very rewarding.
