    I have been working at Alpinestars full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    I get to work with some of the most talented people in a highly technical industry. Best boots and riding apparel on the planet. Opportunities to change the industry with revolutionary tech air product.

    Cons

    communication between departments has alwasy been difficult but the last year process have been implemented to improve that. Not many opportunities to advance in company and depending on department highly demanding schedules.

    Advice to Management

    continue to improve department communications.

    I have been working at Alpinestars full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    This is a driven and inspiring environment that I’ve come to appreciate more and more over the years. For me, Alpinestars provides the opportunity to do work that I’m truly proud of and that’s exciting while I’m doing it - something I haven’t always found with past employers. The product is top-tier, so that makes things easier, especially in Communications. It’s a pleasure talking about something that you believe in.

    My co-workers are genuinely nice people, dedicated and smart, making it fun to be in the office.

    Cons

    Upper management has been working on a lot of past problems. They’ve added more staff in key positions, made review processes more regular, streamlined operations, etc. Things definitely seem to be heading in the right direction.

    They’ve also been doing more events for employees like ride days and cookouts, making improvements to the office and other morale-oriented activities that didn’t happen in the past.

    Advice to Management

    Continue the outreach to employers. They truly appreciate it and it will pay back.

    I have been working at Alpinestars full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    I enjoy working in this environment and this industry. Most of my coworkers are like-minded positive people that makes coming into work much less of a chore. It's a large company but for the most part it still feels like a close-knit team, more like a smaller private company.

    Cons

    There is a lot of turn over in different departments. There aren't many, if any at all, chances to engage with co-workers outside of work. Within small groups there's great camaraderie but this is lost between the groups or the office all together.
    For some it's hard to find what motivation they need to continue with what they need to do.

    Advice to Management

    Engage with the employees. Make Alpinestars the fun place that we should be bragging about!

    I worked at Alpinestars full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    3 breaks, the hours are ok.

    Cons

    Hard work goes unnoticed. They expect you to do a 3 person job. Unorganized, not likely to be a long-term job, much drama always.

    Advice to Management

    Value your employees therefore you have happy workers. Happy workers equals hard effort and work.

    Pros

    It's a steady paycheck, nice health benefits, fun team (when CEO isn't around), great product.

    Cons

    No advancement unless your supervisor is fired and they need someone to fill the position, employees are not valued and easily replaced, workload is overwhelming, shaming, salary employees are expected to work overtime.

    Advice to Management

    Value your employees. It costs more to replace people than to nurture the relationships you have.
