I have been working at Alpine Electronics of America

Pros

Good benefits and decent vacation time for new employees.

Cons

You are on probation for six months. This is an extremely long time; they do not tell you this during the interview process. So, watch out.
Management is one sided about most things. Do not rock the boat. It will get you fired.

    Pros

    Alpine Electronics of America has good brand recognition, although mainly among the younger male crowd. The products are known for their high quality.

    Cons

    The management is run out of Japan and much of top management at the US office are from the Japanese office, making communication challenging as the Japanese office is very "traditional" Japanese and the managers therefore tend to not have the same ideas about work and advancement as an American manager might have.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Intercultural training.
