I have been working at Milestone AV full-timeRecommendsNegative OutlookRecommendsNegative Outlook
Milestone Da-Lite offers a lenient family friendly and fun work environment. The upper management team seem like nice well intention-ed people. Management is not afraid to loosen the purse strings on strategic ventures. Great employees and good people to work with.
Since the Milestone AV technologies acquisition of Da-Lite in 2011. The new management team has basically driven a good company into the ground. They don't seam to understand manufacturing. There is almost no promoting from within. Experienced employees and management have basically been brushed aside and replaced with new employees hired from outside industries who have been put in charge of products and a business they don't understand. Serious lack of leadership within the facility. The CEO's drop in about once every 3 months for a management pow wow then hop on their plane back to there fancy new offices in Eden Prairie, leaving a confused mess behind. Too many chiefs and not enough Indians Health Insurance is sub-par No bonus program to speak of
Advice to Management
Stop trying to run the company via remote control from 500 miles out. A permanent strong upper management leader based in Warsaw is desperately needed. Try to better understand the Da-Lite brand. We are not a stamp it out and repeat automotive big box store type of business. We deliver custom fit high value products with great service. Focus on that. Promote from within, there are plenty of talented experienced people willing to step into new roles that understand the business and products. Listen too your experienced employees and management. A bonus program would be nice, Throw a dog a bone every now and then!
