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

    I have been working at Acronis full-time (more than an year)

    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 ManagementAdvice

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

    Pros

    Has some great people in the middle and lower management areas of the company who are the heartbeat and commercial engine of the company

    Cons

    Poor ego driven senior management who are more interested in gaining favour with the CEO rather than great execution and leadership. this together with disjointed process does not allow the real talent in the company to thrive

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Concentrate on being great leaders not on the title on your business card

    Please reach out to me, I would like to know more details about your comp plan concerns. To my knowledge no comp plans have been altered like that.

    I have been working at Acronis full-time (more than 8 years)

    Pros

    Well-established, profitable fast growing global business operating in hot markets of Backup/DR and Mobility. Strong highly competitive products. Good benefits for employees. Continued professional growth for those who want to work hard. Lots of positive change in the last 6 months since the original founder came back on board as CEO.

    Cons

    Some minor troubles with overall direction for the business and subsequent change in Senior Management that occurred in the last 2 years. This resulted in uncertainty for some employees and probably some bad reviews, but has since been resolved completely. The business and internal culture are back on track and the future is looking very good.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Keep it up!

    I worked at Acronis full-time

    Pros

    A few smart people there.

    Cons

    Way too many product lines for a company without strong marketing and PR engine. Top executive team has no direction.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Respect the people and treat them well. They will in turn work harder for you and turn the company around. Otherwise they will abandon ship.

    I worked at Acronis full-time (less than an year)

    Pros

    Good 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 ManagementAdvice

    * 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

    I worked at Acronis full-time (more than an year)

    Pros

    Free beverages and snacks in the kitchen

    Cons

    Ridiculous amount of turn-over in employees, including upper level management. Management style - both on the sales and technical support side - is aggressive and hostile at times. One of the managers had gotten suspended for some pretty immature actions during the time of my employment there, and I'm sad to say that they are still there today.

    Pros

    * Solid core products
    * Global presence
    * Innovative ideas in Engineering

    Cons

    * Owners are interfering with management
    * All-Russian development team is removed from core markets and moving too slow
    * Too many products, no leadership in any market segment
    * Recent upending of management structure and replacement of CEO created uncertainty and is destroying the climate

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    * Focus on core products

    I have been working at Acronis full-time (more than 5 years)

    Pros

    Good teams, good products, and a very flexible work environment. The company strongly believes in hiring talent as opposed to hiring who is located where they are.

    Cons

    Lack of focus and motivation has left the company hemorrhaging. The third CEO in two years is now on board, which gives hope, but is also indicative of general morale.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Clean house (they did in the past couple of weeks) and give employees a reason to care.
