    Pros

    A very charismatic CEO. I've learned a lot from him. But it does seem that he needs a reality check.

    Cons

    It's an all around nepotistic and extremely toxic environment.

    Lots of management people have been brought from a sister company that holds some 80%-90% of the market they do business in and expect they can do the same with Acronis, even though Acronis is a very different business.

    The current management does not know the business well, they are extremely nepotistic, the environment is extremely toxic.

    The head of this same management has publicly stated a little over half a year ago that the only way to manage people is to oppress and deject the employees (there was even his editorial article in a mainstream Russian newspaper titled "Fear & Loathing in the Office", which basically says it all and is the pillar of the management style at Acronis).

    A lot of very strong professionals with great expertise have left the company since and joined much better opportunities.

    The salaries at Acronis are a) subpar; b) have no average or inbetween grade -- you either get barely enough to make a living or you get a pretty comfortable buck in you are in the nepotism circle.

    Pros

    Sadly I believe they are no pro anymore.
    It all started as a good story but

    Cons

    Terrible Management. This is a feeling that goes across the organisation. Every 6 months a new management team is starting to undo what was done before. CEO keeps changing on a yearly basis. No one but the owner himself would actually take the job. Total absence of Human resources and the little people that carry the tittle are absolutely not empowered to do their jobs. A very large majority of the good people left the company by now.
    Acronis always had the idea of selling. All they've done in the past few years it to make things shinny (new management, "big name" hiring, renaming products...) so they could sell the company.
    They have moved into "Mobility" but they have not invested in the solutions. They renamed them, but essentially it all remains what it was at the time of the acquisition of GroupLogic, which at a very good team. Sad again.

    Advice to Management

    Reporting should be done both way. Up and done.

    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 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

    Pros

    Good Product, some good people, good partners and lots of customers...
    Good business in parts of EMEA
    Good in Japan and Asia

    Cons

    Clueless 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 Management

    Get 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.

    Pros

    Really bright and smart people. Many talented folks that are fighting to restore this company to its former glory. Company had wild success for years and still has the potential to do so,

    Cons

    Ownership is disruptive and meddling, destroying morale and culture. Lack of direction, strategy and restraint has lead to disorganization, miscommunication and staleness in a market that is rapidly getting away from the company. Many good employees have left for greener pastures. The company takes too many unwanted employees from flashy big companies. Poor investments in executive management (past and presently).

    Advice to Management

    Treat your employees as assets and not expendable commodities. Listen to your employees and empower employees to effect change.

    Pros

    Free food, good people who are really trying

    Cons

    CEO and management who just say "yes" to whatever the CEO wants
    Purely numbers driven company - doesn't matter how many "bodies" are left in the wake of hitting the number
    Incompetent head of WW Sales

    Advice to Management

    Listen to the people who have been hired to do their jobs. They have more depth in their field than anyone in managment. No one person has all the answers
