    I worked at FalconStor full-time

    Pros

    Great visionary roots. Good benefits. Opportunity is available, but you have to go get it - everyone is too busy to help you be successful.

    Cons

    Too much baggage to attract the management talent necessary for it to run well.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Find a way to leverage patent portfolio. As always, become and stay relevant by finding a niche in the market; stick to it; and become the best at it.

    I have been working at FalconStor

    Pros

    Great technology. Good sales team communications. Flexible work hours. No death by excessive meetings. Great internal documentation and a very partner friendly organization.

    Cons

    Very slow to innovate and come out with new software and update current software. Communications between some departments needs a lot of work. A lot of sales challenges due to a not to distant negative history.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Become an innovator again. Look 5-10 years out. Embrace subscription based pricing. Don't just enable cloud for DR and data migration offer it.

    I have been working at FalconStor full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    You can excel in a position if you are allowed the chance. Management has been changing, so there are new opportunities.

    Cons

    There are a lot of politics for such a small company. Titles are given out as rewards instead of financial. The company doesn't promote a healthy work/life balance. Salaries are lower than other places and no bonus plan.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Some want change, but not everyone and a few bad eggs can spoil the bunch.

    I have been working at FalconStor

    Pros

    1. Great place to learn many new technologies
    2.

    Cons

    1. No real career development, it becomes a sweat shop and before you know it you've worked many 10-12 hour days and have no clue where you're going 'career' wise.
    Management doesn't care about your future or present goals, they just want the work done.
    As a result, by setting false expectations about your ability to grow with FalconStor..u end up being disappointed.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Change the brand, change the management style, put REAL processes in place.
    Stop this "DROP EVERYTHING NOW AND LETS ALL SCRAMBLE AND DO THIS" work style because it doesn't work and EVERYONE , even you management, ends up spinning wheels unecessarily.
    At the end of the day it does NOT pay.

    Can get extremely busy at times.

    Pros

    Good learning experience while working here. People are good and have lots of knowledge in their domain. Always ready to help

    Cons

    They give low salaries and benefits to employees. Employees are not treated very well. Employees should be considered the most important part of an organization.
