    Pros

    Great technology. Senior managers that are accessible. Including the CEO. The company provides good basic benefits free or at low cost, as in the case of Health Coverage.

    Cons

    FalconStor is a fast paced company in a faced paced industry so the workload can get very heavy at times.

    Pros

    - Lots of talented & intelligent employees - Opportunity to work on various different projects - Excitement over new product! - Great health benefits

    Cons

    - Limited resources - Still some negative perceptions in the marketplace

    Advice to Management

    I think management has been making a number of positive changes over the last year. I would just encourage them to continue working to shift the culture to one of positivity/ fun and to reward the individuals who deserve it.

    Pros

    Company is headed in the right direction with a new platform, revived products, new management and much more. The culture is shifting. Customers love what the technology does and is doing for them. Health benefits are top notch.

    Cons

    Still a small company with limited resources, but acting more like a startup to maximize those and promoting teamwork.

    Advice to Management

    Keep up the good work

    Pros

    You can work independently. No micromanaging. Interesting technology. Very nice employees who are always willing to help. Very flexible environment.

    Cons

    Little or no appraisals (supposed to be annual but not always). Reorging too often causes disjointed management. Need better planning and upper management direction.

    Advice to Management

    Need better planning and upper management direction. Communication could be much better from management and between departments and business units.

    Pros

    nach immerhin knapp 10 Jahren gibt es ständig neue und interessante Herausforderungen. Die Möglichkeiten in nahezu alle Bereiche zu schnuppern oder gar hereinzuwachsen sind besser als in vielen anderen Unternehmen. Technisch gute Produkte und tolles Team - nicht nur in EMEA!

    Cons

    hohes Eigenengagement erforderlich, zu wenige Mitarbeiter im Backoffice/Engineering/Development was einige Dinge "zäh" erscheinen lässt. Zu wenig externe Trainings um Softskills zu schulen bzw. zu erhalten.

    Advice to Management

    Die o.g. Kontrapunkte ausräumen ist zwar mit Kosten verbunden aber eine gute Investition in die Zukunft. Mehr in Marketing investieren um die Brandrecognition zu verbessern.
