Pros

Competive pay structure for engineers in a down market. For smaller companies that have fewer requirements and would prefer to have the vendor configure everything, a portion of their software offerings would work well (VLT). Developing some interesting products. Very aggresive sales force.

Cons

Falsonstor needs better upper management; most have an engineering background and have little management/executive experience. Plain and simply put, management doesn't understand the enterprise customer. The company is having problems establishing and maintaining a foothold in the enterprise space...plagued with constant software problems. Most of the enterprise customers they have had over the last five years are moving to other vendors due to having suffered multiple failures or major outages resulting in data loss. There is little to no documentation available to distribute covering best-practices and deployment strategies. Documentation is only created upon request. Employees are not provided enough information and direction to have a chance to succeed

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Treat people with a little more respect. Honor is more than a word thrown out in a conversation, there is a deeper meaning. Underhanded management and sales practices never lend themselves to succeeding in the marketspace. Customers are smarter then that and should be treated as such.

    in my opihnion they do not treat peoplee with respect, they are more interested in the short term gain than the long term gain

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    They should look at the big picture not the transaction, you will keep your custoemrs longer. Stop selling stuff that does not worf

    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 ManagementAdvice

    Hire a VP of RD with strong development experience.
