    I have been working at FalconStor full-time

    Pros

    Small company, opportunity to get different types of experience in latest technology, foosball table, ping pong table, nerf guns, some upper management very good

    Cons

    Small company, very low employee retention, everyone must wear many hats, very long hours, poor communication, very low morale, schedules are not practical.

    Advice to Management

    Hire more smart people to share the work load. Try to improve morale and stop smart people from leaving. Don't be afraid to upgrade equipment so people can be more efficient.

    Disapproves of CEO

    I have been working at FalconStor

    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.

    Pros

    Teamwork: Team members watch out for one another. If one member drops the ball another will pick it up immediately. Free Lunch for Support Engineers Free Dinner

    Cons

    Learning curve of the VTL, IPStor, SIR, and FDS appliances when first starting the company. Long Hours and changing shifts. Weekend Support Can get extremely busy at times.

    Advice to Management

    Instead of focusing on self gains, focus on your employees and clients more
