    Pros

    Benefits are good and at low cost to employees. Not a bad salary for working on Long Island. New office space.

    Cons

    Management team is terrible. Executive team thinks they can do no wrong but look at the results. Continually declining sales and headcount. No reward or thanks for hard work. Only management team gets compensated.

    Advice to Management

    Respect and reward your employees.

    Pros

    Exposure to a lot of technology, ability to learn the ins and outs of storage industry.

    Cons

    Upper management lacks directions, compensation is unfair, a job well done is never acknowledged, project specs & requirements always change on the fly.

    Pros

    People are very dedicated and hard workers.

    Cons

    Leadership is floundering. The technology is cool but the competition has caught up or surpassed FALC over the past couple years while their leadership has been floundering. FALC solutions integrate with a lot of different hardware and software technologies and they have little to no access to these technologies to test their solutions. Unix is a major lacking platform.

    Advice to Management

    Find a buyer who can make good use of FALC technologies before you run the company into the ground.

    Pros

    Startup environment where there are no completely defined roles so everyday one can find themselves doing a different role. I cover support and sales along with a regular presales work. I work often alone which means that though I work a lot, I make my schedule.

    Cons

    Present engineering management does not inspire confidence. We often seem to low on resources

    Advice to Management

    Change your engineer management. Make sure newly released products are ready.

    Pros

    I could not find any pros.

    Cons

    After the original CEO, Reijane, passed away, no one from the management team cares the company and really knows what to do next. Most people in the management team only know status management, they do not know modern RD technology, such as web development, etc. As a result, they could not work with RD team closely to work on projects.

    Advice to Management

    Hire a VP of RD with strong development experience.
