    Pros

    *Solid technology
    *Newfound commitment to marketing
    *Decent salary
    *Leadership really pushing to build $1B company
    *Great opportunity in cloud marketplace for data protection

    Cons

    *Constant changes at leadership level
    *Way too many 'cooks in the kitchen', the organization is way too top heavy
    *Sales Compensation plans are capped and are not designed to drive the right business behaviors
    *Company is trying to do too many things at once
    *No room for growth

    Advice to Management

    When you make a plan, stick with it. Also, the sales compensation plans are designed for a larger company that has a market-leading technology and a commodity core product, not for a company who is trying desperately to take market-share away from larger companies and that not many people know about. Act like you care about your employees instead of treating them like a 'means to an end'. Keep investing in marketing, the biggest issue (aside from constant turnover and lack of execution) is that the marketplace is not fully aware of Acronis and all of its solutions.

  2. I think that Acronis is a company that is working hard to develop a top notch BR/DR physical, virtual and cloud offering

    Pros

    A recognized product. Training is an adequate start, but new product roll outs could be better

    Cons

    The biggest con would be the lack of help with personal development within one's assigned area. The question arises, "does the company want me to make a career here, or just passing through?"

    Advice to Management

    Train more. Be more clear on career opportunities within the company

    Pros

    You will gain the experience learning to do new things yourself when assigning with new projects.

    Cons

    There are too many layers in the organization, and the top are heavier than the ground staffs. And, communications are filtered, vision doesn't align with actions.

    Advice to Management

    Simplicity is a good vision, but adding multiple layers only makes it more complex. I see only simplicity for the CEO to manage his own business, but adding complexity to the employees to follow.

    Too many layers at the top (each having their own agenda)... adding too much workload to the bottom workforce will just push them away.

    Company wants to move further, wants to drive growth but not looking at growing their own employees. I find that it is bad. From my feeling, you are treating employees like commodities... one goes, just hire another...

    Pros

    sales reps are recognized for their successes, but not compensated accordingly. Pay is not bad, it is just not in line with other sales organizations.

    Cons

    Performance is based strictly on numbers and the company does not weigh territories differently... i.e. New York is equal to North Dakota.

    Advice to Management

    Management is not very aware of the issues the sales team faces and they do not go out of their way to correct these issues
