    Could not imagine how bad this was internally

    Sales (Former Employee)

    ProsGood consumer products. They're fairly priced with great feedback and image on the market.

    Cons* Not an Enterprise company, no 1st class product, not a disruptive technology
    * No strategy (message confused with back-up & mobility)
    * No software development (no Oracle, NDMP and AIX agents)
    * Poor visibility on the SMB / Enterprise market where the competition is strong and well prepared
    * No vision = no future

    Advice to Senior Management* Create a real true internal communication as there is barely one
    * Create a working together dynamics
    * Make professional decisions and do not behave as amateurs (or you'll never compete with the Big Names)
    * Or concentrate on the consumers part and forget the Entreprise

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend – I'm not optimistic about the outlook for this company

    Poor executive team and poor CEO damaged company permanently

    Anonymous Employee (Former Employee)
    Boston, MA

    ProsGood Product, some good people, good partners and lots of customers...
    Good business in parts of EMEA
    Good in Japan and Asia

    ConsClueless Ex CEO and senior leadership in HR, OPS, Sales and Support
    Marketing damaged and stripped of talent
    Lacks creativity and ambition
    Nasty political environment building
    Poor support of customers, partners and staff

    Advice to Senior ManagementGet rid of the very weak executive team (thankfully most left anyway) and get some decent, honest and enthusiastic leaders that can re-build and set a strategy for this lost at sea company.

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend

    Company needs to get out of its own way

    Anonymous Employee (Current Employee)

    ProsReally bright and smart people. Many talented folks that are fighting to restore this company to its former glory. Company had wild success for years and still has the potential to do so,

    ConsOwnership is disruptive and meddling, destroying morale and culture. Lack of direction, strategy and restraint has lead to disorganization, miscommunication and staleness in a market that is rapidly getting away from the company. Many good employees have left for greener pastures. The company takes too many unwanted employees from flashy big companies. Poor investments in executive management (past and presently).

    Advice to Senior ManagementTreat your employees as assets and not expendable commodities. Listen to your employees and empower employees to effect change.

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend – I'm not optimistic about the outlook for this company

    Death Spiral

    Marketing (Current Employee)
    Woburn, MA

    ProsOnce had a good product

    ConsTechnology is lagging; invested in top managmenet and not is developers or technology. Poor leadership, rampant turnoever at all levels; management is overpaid while middle and lower level people are under paid. Toxic, predatory environment.

    Advice to Senior ManagementGo home - you don't know what you are doing and you have sunk this company.

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend – I'm not optimistic about the outlook for this company

    Very Flat

    Acronis Account Manager (Current Employee)
    Woburn, MA

    ProsI can't think of any. It has been a roller coaster since I started. So many different managers, and a lay off when they say they want to grow.

    Cons* Management doesn't listen
    * Management doesn't communicate changes that are made
    * Management talks down to their employees. They say "my business" when it's actually "our business" we are all trying to reach a number.
    * turnover is at an all time high. I've seen three general managers over the course of 2 years.
    * They are bringing in several people from other countries to "manage" but they don't understand how business in the US works.
    * When people leave the refuse to pay their vacation time.
    * HR won't respond when there are issues. And when you need an immediate response they blow you off.
    * Very shady business practices. Discounting for one not for another. Accounts stolen by other account managers. Management has no control over their business.
    * lots of pressure from upper management to commit to a number without having the data or resources to figure out the data.
    * They have hired several new "leaders" that don't understand the business. They don't understand how things work and they don't give effective training.
    * The latest version of the product has not worked for several customers and the refuse to do any RMAs for these issues.

    Advice to Senior ManagementListen to the people on the floor - we're the ones that know what's going on in the field.

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend

    Rudderless, very Dysfunctional – just a job not a career

    (Former Employee)
    Woburn, MA

    ProsWorked with some talented likeable coworkers. Company's software products pretty good, some won awards. Free snacks & beverages, and lunches catered sometimes

    ConsReally inept executive team, many in titles and roles far beyond their training and experience - their in way over their heads and it showed daily. Ineffective absentee CEO. No clear strategy, goals, roles, review process and poor mgmt communication. Culture of secrecy; place founded by Russians and many decisions still made in Moscow by founders & their cronys or behind closed doors by exec team. Awful , depressing work environment, lots of demands but little support – senior mgmt quick to blame others but never take reponsibilty for how their own actions (or inaction) and bad decisions effect entire org. Mgmt shows no desire to develop or keep employees, people viewed as easily replaced. Thus limited possiblity for career growth or financial gain, esp. for sales since products sold mainly thru partners. Benefits suck compared 2 other co.’s (lower pay, no 401K match, less vacation days, etc.). Morale very low. Wish I left a lot sooner than I did, much happier now.

    Advice to Senior ManagementRecognize your own limitations and hire people into roles that match their skills and experience. Trust people with relevent expertise to do their jobs and get out of their way.

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend

    management has no clear strategy and technology is for consumers

    Pre-Sales (Current Employee)
    Emea (Indonesia)

    Prossmall company. you have freedom to execute your job.

    Constechnology is not reliable for large environments. Lots of poeple are talking to much and don't execute,enought.

    Advice to Senior Managementbe consistent and closer to the field reality. Make your technology more robust and reliable

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend – I'm not optimistic about the outlook for this company

    Lost its glory

    Anonymous Employee (Current Employee)

    ProsStill a good name for very small customers (Lower SMB)

    ConsMany technical problems in the product
    No long term strategy
    3 CEO's in 3 years, this company is unstable

    Advice to Senior ManagementNeed stability and innovation

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend – I'm not optimistic about the outlook for this company

    Stay away - Company is in chaos

    Anonymous Employee (Current Employee)

    ProsFree food, good people who are really trying

    ConsCEO and management who just say "yes" to whatever the CEO wants
    Purely numbers driven company - doesn't matter how many "bodies" are left in the wake of hitting the number
    Incompetent head of WW Sales

    Advice to Senior ManagementListen to the people who have been hired to do their jobs. They have more depth in their field than anyone in managment. No one person has all the answers

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend – I'm not optimistic about the outlook for this company

    Joke

    Anonymous Employee (Current Employee)

    ProsGood colleagues/free snack/soda-perks of a small company

    ConsAcronis is a joke of a place to work for. Senior management has no clue what they are doing and they continue to promote people within management or hire management that have no clue what they are doing. Employees are not valued at all, no reviews so no raises and the attitude is that everyone is replaceable. Everyone I knew was and is miserable and most of the employees are looking for a new job (no big shocker here.)

    HR is to laugh at and cannot be trusted (there is no employee/employer confidentiality there).
    There is no work/life balance there as they expect you to be available at any time and work late. It's all about making the sales # there, Marketing management is nonexistence and they frankly have no clue what they are doing!

    I would not recommend anyone to work there-not even my own worst enemy!

    Advice to Senior ManagementHire veterns in the industry that actually know how to run a company and get rid of existing management.

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend
