2012 | VERIFIED INTERN


Uppers

I really enjoyed the people that I worked with in my department. Also, everyone in HR was extremely helpful throughout the interview process as well as the internship experience. I felt very welcome at Garmin and comfortable.


Downers

Many of my projects got cancelled halfway through the project.


Advice to Potential Interns

Do not be afraid to network within your team as well as with the other interns. Attend activities as much as you can in order to meet and network with as many people as possible. It can be exhausting sometimes but it is definitely worth it.

Software Engineering Internship with Garmin: Real-World Experience, Great Pay, and Paid Time Off!
2012 | VERIFIED INTERN


Uppers

The most amazing part of the internship is the fact that I get to work on real projects inside Garmin (not just busy work). It doesn't hurt that I really love programming, so I enjoy what I do. The environment is fairly casual, and everyone is extremely kind, helpful, and understanding.


Downers

Its hard to say what I liked least about Garmin; everything is exceptional. The only thing I dislike is the GIT / Gerrit version control system. However, this is a necessary version control system that most software engineering companies use (or at least some form of) so the experience with it (headaches and all) is still very useful.


Advice to Potential Interns

Garmin is an exceptional place to work (especially for an intern). You are well compensated, the experience is very applicable, the atmosphere is casual


Advice to Management

The absolute ONLY advice I'd give is to not wait so long to contact potential candidates (it was about 2 months after I applied that I was first contacted). Aside from that, nothing.

Real engineering work and being treated as a full-time associate.

Company culture, compensation/benefits, and location. And I was given the responsibilities of a full-time associate.

The red tape of dealing with the FAA.

This company takes care of their employees. Very flexible and they make sure you are content with your settings.
