    So much hope, not able to execute...yet

    Anonymous Employee (Former Employee)

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

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

    Advice to Senior ManagementFind 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.

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend – I'm not optimistic about the outlook for this company

    Great people but challenging place to work

    Anonymous Employee (Current Employee)

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

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

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend – I'm not optimistic about the outlook for this company

    A junior company with potential

    Director (Current Employee) Melville, NY

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

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

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend

    ConsLess growth, you don't know where your future is going.

    Advice to Senior ManagementEmployees are not stable because of less growth.

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend

    Lots of change needed

    Anonymous Employee (Current Employee) Melville, NY

    Pros1. Great place to learn many new technologies
    2.

    Cons1. 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 Senior ManagementChange 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.

    Great teamwork but can be hectic at times

    Technical Support Engineer (Current Employee) Melville, NY

    ProsTeamwork: Team members watch out for one another. If one member drops the ball another will pick it up immediately.
    Free Lunch for Support Engineers
    Free Dinner

    ConsLearning curve of the VTL, IPStor, SIR, and FDS appliances when first starting the company.
    Long Hours and changing shifts.
    Weekend Support
    Can get extremely busy at times.

    Advice to Senior ManagementInstead of focusing on self gains, focus on your employees and clients more

    Working at Falconstor is OK.

    Anonymous Employee (Current Employee)

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

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