    I have been working at Acronis full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    The momentum is shifting. In the last 6-9 months there have been MAJOR changes in the leadership and strategy for Acronis. All are positive things. The culture is changing and there is a real positivity in the air, despite the ground we still need to cover

    Cons

    There is A LOT of ground to cover to get things where they need to be

    Advice to Management

    Keep employees motivated. The little things make a difference. Having the snacks and drinks available for free and bringing in lunch for everyone occasionally makes all the difference in the world. Keep doing these things.

    I have been working at Acronis full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    I have been with Acronis for 2 months, and I have a good feel for company culture now. Under the new leadership there is an abundance of positive change with the business direction. The new leadership understands what is needed to move forward and expand, while not ignoring the business that has made them successful for the last decade.

    Cons

    There is still a lot of work to be done, which means long hours, but the work is rewarding and team-oriented.

    Advice to Management

    Keep the new course, and continue the employee-centric activities that have resulted in the positive work environment.

    I have been working at Acronis full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Great people. Huge opportunity. Indoor parking. Well stocked snack room. Inclusive in decision making. Great IT staff. Clear vision for the company. Very international in attitude and workforce. Great products.

    Cons

    Some policies such as filing expense claims, are draconian and untrusting. Some people have been there too long. A lot of new employees so culture is not stable.

    Advice to Management

    On the right track. Maybe spend a bit more on some of the internal systems and speed up decision making.

    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 Management

    Keep it up!

    - Focus on hiring and keeping a top-notch people - Forgo the Kimball Farm already. People are tired having the company's annual outing at the same boring place. Organize something similar they do in the Russian office.

    Pros

    They give you a chance to break into software. It's a great place to start your career in software, at least it was when I was there. Perhaps someone more senior may receive a more aggressive compensation package and it would be a good move.

    Cons

    Hard on numbers, like most sales organizations, but there was always a coldness to it and no exceptions.

    Advice to Management

    Managers promoted from within are always going to be the strongest, also gives the reps something to strive for.

    New upper management to include Marketing, has been a benefit to the company. Fresh ideas collaborated with vast experience will ensure growth and prosperity.

    Pros

    Truely international culture. Real opportunities for Acronis to grow and be successful. There are some really talented and lovely people working here. Good mix of maturity and experience - the right people getting the right roles, in the right geographies. Alex Pinchev will make Acronis more successful, you can count on it. New leaders like Alex P and Scott Crenshaw value people and are respected throughout the industry. Just six months ago I wouldn't have recommended this company to a friend - but now I would.

    Cons

    Has been a lot of change this year and there is still a lot ahead, but it is all good change. You have to be self motivated and stay focused and flexible, because of the changes. I am bored of eating at the Beacon Grille.

    Advice to Management

    The management changes have been good so far - keep going til the right team is in place and is a real management team. Some of the culture issues from previous management are still lingering - stay consistent in action and words and demonstrate company values etc. You have an incredibly bright and observant employee base - keep up the open communication!
