    I worked at Milestone Systems Inc full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    it is a different job everyday. Always busy. Most everyone there was great to work with. They were very good to me. Glad I had that experience

    Cons

    Heavy politics. Favoritism was obvious.

    Advice to Management

    Be fair...don't favor some employees over others.

    I enjoy working at Milestone. The upper management provides an environment where they value your work life balance. You have an opportunity to work with leading manufacturers. The engineers are some of the best in the industry. The customers satisfaction is always extremely high.

    Cons

    Hard to keep up with cert requirements.

    Advice to Management

    Communicate better on company direction.

    I worked at Milestone Systems Inc full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    As of this writing there are not many pros. The major pro for Milestone systems is that it is a job. "not a career"

    Cons

    Not very well organized as a company. The company is fairly large but is run like a small mom and pop shop. Management needs to be more proactive and involved with day to day opereations. The idea of the president just showing up and letting people go sets a bad prescience. It looks like a hatch style of running a business and lacks a form of professionalism.

    Advice to Management

    Invest in the people you have. Establish a culture that invest in the people that you have. You have lost some good people and will continue to loose more.

    Pros

    If you are motivated there is a real opportunity here. Top notch training on cutting edge technologies. Somewhat flexible work schedules, real family oriented.

    Cons

    Some of the management may seem off-putting. There will be expectations, some of which may challenge you, if you want something easy look elsewhere.

    Advice to Management

    Currently doing a good job but invest more in and incentivize all of your employees. A little goes a long ways.

    I worked at Milestone Systems Inc full-time

    Pros

    Vendor technology was the best of breed for the most part, and what engineering talent had remained was very good.

    Cons

    - They claim to be an engineering company, but have a revolving door in the engineering department.
    - Revenue is the plan for the future, not how their PEOPLE will help them reach their lofty goals.
    - Culture full of deceit and mistrust created by certain management.

    Advice to Management

    Look in a mirror. Would YOU want to work for YOU?

    Pros

    MSI nurtures innovation, particularly when it come to serving the customer. They have earned their ranks among principles executing this concept.

    Cons

    Small compared to some of its competitors so they have to work that much harder to win.A strong overall value proposition is a must.
