Pros

You get a learn new technologies, hardware and software.

Cons

1. you will find that majority of the people do not want to share what they know. If you ask them a question, they will tell you to read the CDP/NSS admin guide. The CDP/NSS guide book has no detailed information on troubleshooting.

2. You are thrown into the fire without any formal training. You can take online training with no interaction from your manager or colleagues.

3. Most managers have to management experience on how to talk to employees and treat them like crap.

4. There is no raises or praise for your work.

5. You are told to come to your manager if you have questions, when you do he tells you to talk to your co-workers who tell you to read the guide, which is poorly written.

6. You are left to figure things out on your own.

7. There is no career path, I knew ppl that were there for 6-7 years doing the exact same job and for some of them this was/is their 1st job.

Advice to Management

1. Make the direct managers take management training.

2. Setup REAL training for new employees so they understand the software which they will be supporting.

3. Acknowledge work that is done well.

    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 Management

    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.
