    I worked at Alpine Electronics of America

    Pros

    Company has reputation and cool products.

    Cons

    Company is moving too slow with technology and market demand. Too much controlled from Japanese headquater.
    If you happen to be a hardworking guy, you will be hardworking your whole life while many enjoy easy life and getting the same or better benefits.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Please be fair. My effort to impress being shield somewhere.
