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

    Pros

    - Solid higher management
    - Reputable CEO with a good track record and great work ethic
    - Laser focus on what company does the best and expansion of growing markets
    - Provide great opportunities to people as they did to me

    Cons

    - Management has been changed quite frequently for the last 5 years which lead to loss of many talented people

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    - 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.

    I have been working at Acronis full-time

    Pros

    Acronis is an all around great company. Whether you are looking for a place to start your career or you are a seasoned pro, Acronis is the place to work. Stagnation is the antithesis of Acronis. I firmly believe that in 2 - 3 years Acronis will be making MUCH more money than it does now and be MUCH more recognizable.

    Cons

    Salaries aren't great. But this is changing!

    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 have been working at Acronis full-time (less than an 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 ManagementAdvice

    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 (less than an 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 ManagementAdvice

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

    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 ManagementAdvice

    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.

    Great ambitions and potential, but management is too self-centered

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

    Pros

    After lots of turbulence, a very strong executive team headed by the owner/CEO was brought on board, with more stellar names being added regularly. Amazing development talent that can build great innovative products. Global presence, strongly international (and expanding), diverse product line.

    Cons

    Not really customer-centric beyond the Support function. Very bad at project management in all functions and in all levels. Siloed communications, very different culture in different locations. Top management is too pushy, and insists on knowing things better than you, doesn't trust experienced employees.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Stop pushing your decisions down the drain to your senior managers. Involve them into decision-making process, talk to them and appreciate their insights and feedback. They will respect you more and their loyalty will increase as a result.

    I worked at Acronis full-time (more than 5 years)

    Pros

    Great opportunities for growth. Just demonstrate your dedication and results, and you will have no problems with building your career. I joined as a junior support engineer and grew up to head of product launch operations.

    Excellent people. I got know great professionals of all levels, from individual contributors to Senior VPs. The atmosphere was always comfortable to work in.

    Excellent IT infrastructure that just works. Modern hardware equipment renewed regularly. Great tools and technologies - site-to-site VPN, stable VOIP with full range of options (smartphone support, worldwide call forwarding, etc), exchange-based email with web access. Might not sound special, but that stuff really matters. My job requires collaboration with virtually all offices across the globe, so robust and stable IT makes my job and job of my colleagues highly enjoyable.

    I loved working here, recommended.

    Cons

    Sometimes directions change inconsistently, but hey, I bet it happens within most companies. And it all got much better after Serguei stepped back in.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Keep it up.
