    Avoid it like the plague (in Asia)

    Pros

    - Flexible work hours - Salary

    Cons

    Review is specifically for Asia. No other benefits except for salary. People in non-sales roles have no say in anything and are treated as best as dirt (read - no value and respect). The higher management sitting in Singapore has created a coterie of useless people who are used as (blind) eyes and (deaf) ears for everything. Non-communication between people and teams, non-transparency, groupism, raceism, one upmanship is widely practised in a dictatorial way by the upper management. No HR touch whatsoever for the remote offices and even if concerns, serious ones too, are raised they get completely ignored. If HR does look into grievances (very rarely), only that person is reached out to against whom the concern has been raised and the matter is closed!!! Highly incompetent, ignorant, self centric, and self-grandiosing people have been elevated as country managers who have the final say for everything even if they don't know facts and neither have the skills and willingness to dig up/listen to facts. No wonder the Singapore office in particular, and some other countries saw a high attrition rate where good and competent people left.

    Pros

    Flexible working hours, minimal supervision, follow the sun rule

    Cons

    Too much focus on only sales, blind eyed towards real problems, preaching values but not walking the talk, lop-sided decisions without taking all the facts into consideration, ignorant attitude, encouraging and practising non-communication amongst teams, no trainings and growth plans, no benefits whatsoever apart from salary, ignorant management in far away regions from DK. Regions apart from Sofia and DK are not good at all for technical roles.

    Pros

    Extended team in the US seems very professional. Like the agnostic product and not propriety systems

    Cons

    Too many to list....But here are the highlights of things that I mark as 1 out of 5 - Culture - No value for Team, it's all about 'I' - Poor management, in APAC not so sure about HQ. But then you have to wonder that local management can't be operating without the consent of HQ. - The employee retention rate is shocking. - Wanting growth is awesome, trying to achieve it at the cost of integrity is NOT - Bunch of friends looking out for each other, great for them! Sad for the company and anyone who is outside the 'friendzone'. - Toxic environment

    Great Place to Work!

    Pros

    Overall I would consider Milestone a fantastic place to work. During COVID19 our US location was quick to shut down and allow 95% of our employees to work from home to keep us as safe as possible. The working culture is exciting, we are growing, and I am not micromanaged. The benefits and vacation are also very generous.

    Cons

    Because it is not a a large company, growth can be limited. It can be a waiting game for new positions to be created or for people above you to leave. Additionally, because we are growing some processes have bottlenecks or lack efficiency.
