Summer spent working with professional code and fixing real issues in it


Uppers

The location of the office on campus, the readiness of full-time employees to help me out with any problems I may have, the pay, the real-world experience.


Downers

The training is extensive, it's easy to feel isolated from the rest of the company


Advice to Potential Interns

This is a great place to intern if you want to work on real-world problems and experience a professional environment for programmers.


Would You Recommend

Yes

Hands-on Experience in Professional Software Testing and Development Processes


Uppers

I have taken away a lot of invaluable experience in both the software testing and development processes in a professional environment. I also enjoyed the flexible hours.


Downers

The flexibility of the working environment often leaves an air of uncertainty about what each day or week will hold, but this could be seen as a plus from a different perspective.


Advice to Potential Interns

If you don't know all the answers at first, that's okay because they don't really expect you to. The internship program is a really good learning environment. If you are going into software development, make sure you paid attention in operating systems class.

Aviation Software Engineer Intern Confirms Compliance with Requirements


Uppers

The best aspect was definitely the team I worked with, and the culture of the company.

The company culture is great, and the pay is competitive. The work teaches you a lot, even if it seems monotonous, as most software intern work is.

I cannot think of anything!

Garmin, a company that allows you to enjoy what you do.


Uppers

The other employees and interns are great to work with or hang out with. Housing is paid for and very close to the office. The company pays it's interns a competitive rate. Garmin's cafe serves good food.


Downers

Housing is dorm style living.


Advice to Potential Interns

This company is enjoyable to work for. The environment is relaxed and Garmin has policies in place to promote an enjoyable work environment.


Advice to Management

As an intern, I had to learn how to use alot of the tools and software that are standard at Garmin on my own, or with a little help from other engineers on my team. It would be helpful to have a formal training class on how to use these tools.
