    Pros

    Amazing benefits and work culture. The people they bring in and promote are brilliant and hard working. They work with their employees to create the best possible workplace for each person. There is large room for growth at this company. Management is very good at seeing the hard working individuals and promoting them. You can easily grow into a career path you want with hard work and hustle. I have never worked...

    Cons

    Pay is not as high as other tech companies. Strong benefits and generous PTO help offset that. Strategy isn't always communicated down to everyone.

    Advice to Management

    Continue to promote those who work hard and show they want to grow. The Americas management and leadership team have great vision for the company. They should communicate that strategy down a bit more so everyone knows the common goal.

      The only thing is the pay is not the top of the scale. It isn't low and isn't bad, it's just not the top.

      Advice to Management

      Keep it up. You guys are the best.

      I have been working at Milestone Systems A / S full-time for more than a year

      Pros

      I have been with Milestone for around a year. The interview process was intermediate in difficulty, with most questions technical and customer-oriented. I found the questions to be relatively easy, but the interview process was relatively long and rather drawn out for the nature and level of the position. However, I think the process has mostly worked for them given the personal and productive quality of my coworkers....

      Cons

      Honestly, there aren't that many, at least in my department. There are some structural/process changes taking place, so we'll see if that changes things. Until then, the only real cons I can see are that the pay isn't that competitive (some of this may be offset by the benefits for some people), and that telecommuting is limited or effectively absent when other companies in the industry are more open to it.

      Advice to Management

      Increase pay, open up to telecommuting, increase intradepartmental team building activities. Otherwise, keep doing what you're doing.

      I worked at Milestone Systems A / S full-time for more than 3 years

      Pros

      Progressive technology; Extremely stable; Customer centric and driven; Great Support staff; Field sales are very reliable and proficient; best pre sales team in the business...period

      Cons

      Acquisition by Canon gives them more red tape; gotten too big too fast; relationships and partnerships not as important; it's all about the margin and it's pretty cut throat

      Advice to Management

      Get back to the Milestone of 2000 regarding how you treat employees, customers & partners

      I have been working at Milestone Systems A / S full-time for more than 10 years

      Pros

      Decent vacation and health plans, 401k contribution matching and profit sharing. A leader in the industry. Opportunities for international travel thanks to being g a global organization. Is owned by Canon with strong financial backing but is still run independently and keeps some of it's small business culture. While not everyone has the same experience, I've never had problems with my coworkers, managers or direct reports....

      Cons

      Is not known for competitive compensation. The Pros can compensate for some of this, but I can understand why those at the low end of the pay range would jump ship. The nepotism is going away with the exit of Eric Fullerton and his family, and a couple of their friends, along with a couple others from several years ago. Nepotism is common in a small business. The office in Denmark had the same issue ten years ago when...

      Advice to Management

      Reconsider your position of paying wages under the 30th percentile for the job function for better retention. Put more effort into innovating in the ways we support our partners and customers, including product improvements to make it easier to avoid unrecommended configuration. Otherwise, you're doing many things right and the pros outweigh the cons for most of us I would argue.

      internal communications due to being a global company

      Advice to Management

      Don't settle and get too comfortable, continue to press in and drive us further. Balance your business focus a bit, a little less sales and a bit more operations.
