    I worked at Falcon.io full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    Lots of great, caring people who are invested in your success. From a product standpoint, Falcon is fantastic. We work with tons of amazing brands that stay with us because of how happy they are with the platform. Falcon is a place I didn't mind getting out of bed for every the morning. Solid growth quarter after quarter and a sales team that consistently is SMASHING their number. Awesome group of people that make...

    Cons

    Like any organization, communication between departments can sometimes be frustrating. With the HQ in Copenhagen, sometimes the time difference can present a challenge. That said, the CPH team is always willing to go above and beyond to hop on calls with US employees, prospects, and clients when necessary.

    Advice to Management

    Continue rolling out career paths for SA's and AE's.

    I worked at Falcon.io full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    Tries to "promote" culture with attributes such as happy hours, free food/drink, spiffs, etc.

    Cons

    Complete lack of transparency with targets continuously changing Many promises of new systems/roles were unfulfilled Pretended to have inclusive culture but quick to appeal to the bottom line and make cuts where they saw necessary. No transparency so it appeared arbitrarily Sales department does not give any care to employees and only focuses on bottom line No sense of career progression. Was told one thing but reality...

    Advice to Management

    Pick which you care about culture or bottom line. Be honest with your employees about it rather than leading them on one way or another. Make expectations clear and be transparent about objectives. There's a giant mistrust of your leadership because of changing priorities or straight out lying.

    I worked at Falcon.io full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    Cool office space - nice people scattered throughout the company

    Cons

    Bad product, cheaper solutions actually work better and make more sense in how they were designed Leadership team is really bad! They care way more about the Denmark office and employees then the NYC ones. Seriously, only join the NYC office if you want to be treated like a second class citizen CEO is arrogant and is completely reactive to other companies in the space

    Advice to Management

    Bring someone into leadership who has, you know, successfully grown small companies before... Invest in the product so that it works even somewhat well

    I have been working at Falcon.io full-time for less than a year

    Pros

    Everyone is as nice and helpful as advertised. The first weeks raining class had almost all the employees at some point or another come in, introduce themselves and share their stories. Everyone eats lunch together daily and share real unfiltered stories! Great people from various backgrounds.

    Cons

    Office is under construction so a lot of moving parts add to distractions. It can get hot too as I don't believe there is a central AC.

    Advice to Management

    Work with building management for a commitment timeline to share with everyone. I think this will help everyone wrap their head around how long until office is complete.

    Pros

    Great culture and training process- first week was awesome Nice perks like catered healthy lunches, monthly team events, and Friday bars Employees are encouraged to think creatively, not micro-managed Competitive attitude

    Cons

    It's got the whole start-up vibe, so don't waste your time if you're looking to just clock in and out and collect a paycheck.
