    Pros

    It is a fun and fast paced environment. Innovation is core to the organization, and everyone is motivated to drive the company and its products forward into the future across all functions. Great people make the days fly by. Family-first attitude with good work-life balance.

    Cons

    Everyone has to wear a lot of hats, which isn't the right fit for everyone. Lack of structure also isn't right for everyone. Below average medical benefits.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Keep finding great people, and motivating your team members to take on new challenges.

    I have been working at Milestone AV full-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    Used to be a great place to work until leadership change. Since then it has been on a doward spiral.

    Cons

    No sense of direction. Leadership does not stand behind employees. Zero chance of advancement in certain departments.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Get a sense of who you are and start giving your employees the direction they need and stand behind them or help them grow in the areas they are deficit. When times get tough instead of cleaning house really try to understand why something happened.

    Pros

    The facilities here are very suitable. It is a fast-paced environment so if that is your work style, this will be a good fit for you. Nice co-workers.

    Cons

    Benefits are very below average. It is difficult to maintain a work-life balance as everyone is working fast and under short deadlines. Little promotion from within.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Evolve with the times and change benefits plan (pay, medical, vacation, etc). Also, there are some great people working here so promote from the pool you have.

    I have been working at Milestone AV full-time

    Pros

    Great facilities, fun co-workers, engaging industry, innovative. In the beginning this company had a great entrepreneurial spirit and gave employees a lot of responsibility - with change in management and growth this company is having a serious identity crisis and everyone is questioning their role and responsibilities.

    Cons

    Literally zero work-life balance, high-stress, underpaid, lack of focus and direction from anyone in management or in a leadership position. The lack of resources balanced with amount of projects is seriously lopsided. Employees are being worked to the bone with no promise for the future.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    This company needs more focus, balance priorities - give realistic goals to obtain, create a fun and engaging culture, and listen to employees.

    Pros

    They offer decent pay and benefits. Great people employed here.

    Cons

    The office environment became more and more about office politics as the years progressed. It used to be more like a family/team.

    Pros

    Friendly employees
    Opinions of everyone are taken into consideration and valued

    Great building

    Cons

    Trying to continue previous growth by expanding in too many directions
    Poor communication between departments
    Adding cumbersome process and micro-management

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    A good company to work for. Continuing to allow innovation rather than getting stuck in building processes and micro-management will help keep this an exciting place to work. Focus on growing strong products and future technologies rather than purchasing companies focused on old technologies to show greater revenues.

    I have been working at Milestone AV

    Pros

    Good co-workers and a very good management team
    Good benefits package and opportunities for performance bonuses
    Good access/feedback from management team
    Growing company with excellent product offerings

    Cons

    Because company is still growing, there are limited opportunities for advancement at this point.
    No tuition reimbursement/carer path programs developed yet
    Limited/no opportunity to interact or transfer to other business units

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    I feel that this is one of the best companies I have ever worked for. The only reason I would ever leave is because I may find that I cannot advance to the next level in my career here.
