Outside of meeting some good individuals, my overall experience at this company was not good.

I worked at Milestone Technologies full-time (more than an year)

Pros

Fairly flexible hours; you're free to work at home as long as your results are there. Technical expertise is good and getting better.

Cons

A very uncertain environment. Sales Managers manage by threat and intimidation and very obviously support favorites; everyone is not treated equally. The best opportunities are handed to picked individuals to ensure their success and financial reward. The atmosphere is very tense and suspicious; and frustration abounds. Very rarely, if ever, do you hear anyone saying anything good about their job or the company. Very little training and unreasonable expectations. Very little trust or confidence in management.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Wake up and pay attention to the concerns of your people. Realize that everyone is on the same team deserving of support. Compete with your competitors, not each other.

    I worked at Milestone Technologies full-time (less than an year)

    Pros

    Decent exposure to name brand companies. Other employees can be very pleasant, easy to work with. Off-site assignments are fun.

    Cons

    Very little direction in terms of management. The management has little to no understanding of what it means to 'coach' employees towards success. Within IT especially at Facebook, it can be extremely political. Very weed-and-feed attitude. In the 8 months I worked there, I saw a high turnover ratio; that speaks volumes in itself. My direct manager had no idea what he expected of me, nor how he could be resourceful towards helping me achieve my goals. Overall the experience was OK. I wouldn't recommend them to any ambitions young professional.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Try to promote and retain your employees. Play less politics, and incorporate ALL employees.
