    I worked at Pioneer Electronics full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    Great company, Japanese firm seemed to care about employees. Though the pay was less than market, there was a 10% bonus depending upon financials that year.

    Cons

    Japan controls the PUSA. In my position it was easier than say marketing or sales where numbers and products are generated in Japan.

    Advice to Management

    The market is changing, you need to learn to change with it.

    Pros

    Reading the reviews by current and former employees, the pros jump right out. Amazing group of people who care and have contributed great things despite low pay/stability. The other pro is brand, it's fun to be connected with something people love.

    Cons

    Management of the company could be less top down. They are missing contributions from the people on the ground who have important things to say.

    Advice to Management

    Treat it as a global company
