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

    Anonymous Employee (Current Employee)

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

    ConsThe 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 Senior ManagementTrain more. Be more clear on career opportunities within the company

    Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend – I'm optimistic about the outlook for this company

    A highly innovative technology company with bright future and lots of opportunity for professional growth.

    Sales Engineer (Current Employee) Woburn, MA

    ProsWell-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.

    ConsSome 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 Senior ManagementKeep it up!

    Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend – I'm optimistic about the outlook for this company

    Work in progress

    Senior Social Media Manager (Current Employee) Woburn, MA

    Leaders on the market, the best solutions
    A lot to do
    Overall flexibility
    People are open to changes and creativity

    ConsCompany was highly damaged by previous CEO's

    A lot of things are in transition right now

    Poor corporate culture

    Director (Former Employee) Woburn, MA

    ProsA few smart people there.

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

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

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend

    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

    Management Mess

    Acronis Account Manager (Former Employee) Woburn, MA

    ProsFree beverages and snacks in the kitchen

    ConsRidiculous 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.

    Troubled but still plenty of opportunity

    Director (Current Employee)

    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 Senior Management* Focus on core products

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend

    Grossly mismanaged, but possibly back on track with new CEO

    Engineer (Current Employee)

    ProsGood 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.

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

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend – I'm 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
