    Pros

    Milestone is a growing company, with strong ownership that is investing in the organization on many levels. The headquarters in Eden Prairie and the new Operations Center in Shakopee are both nice facilities. Milestone hires for personality, and there are very few "bad eggs", which makes it a fun place to work. Investments in culture and team-building also make for a fun working environment. Company invests in employees to make sure everyone has the best tools to do their job. Milestone has a strong record of promoting from within, and challenges its employees to wear many hats and solve problems. Milestone and it's family of brands is extremely well-regarded in the AV industry, and the future seems bright.

    Cons

    Growing pains exist on the Operations and IT sides of the business, but recent leadership changes in both those groups seems like positive change. Brand teams are still sorting out what structure best fits the needs of the organization, and work too much in isolation of each other. Some teams seem better motivated than others, and new product development often moves at a glacial pace. HR has historically seemed out of touch with the business, and definitely isn't the primary culture driver in the organization. Senior leadership is increasingly distant from the brand teams, which is an inevitable downfall of a growing organization. Medical Benefits are below average for a company of Milestone's size.

    Advice to Management

    More regular communication about the state of the business would be appreciated by many; especially those that aren't in roles that regularly are exposed to sales numbers. Spend more time connecting the brand teams together, so that they don't operate in such distinct silos. Invest more in Product Development to get new products & technologies to market faster!
