    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 ManagementAdvice

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

    I worked at FalconStor full-time

    Pros

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

    Cons

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

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Find 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.

    I have been working at FalconStor

    Pros

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

    Cons

    Very 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 ManagementAdvice

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

    Current Employee - Director in Melville, NY

    I have been working at FalconStor full-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

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

    Cons

    There 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 ManagementAdvice

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