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.

    Pros

    Familiarity with technology - you will learn a lot if you take the time, there is a lot of equipment to learn and coworkers are good resources. Lots of good people work for the company in lower positions.

    Cons

    Horrible management - I don't think anyone is actually trained to be a manager, and upper management does not care about the workers at all. Long hours are expected, as is working Saturdays. Some times people are called in from vacations for customer support. No appreciation for job well done but you will hear if you did wrong. Negativity is all you will hear from your manager, because he is hering the same from above.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    No matter what is said management will never learn to respect it's employees and the value they bring to Falconstor.
