    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

    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 ManagementAdvice

    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.

    I have been working at Acronis full-time for more than 3 years

    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 ManagementAdvice

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

    Pros

    Once had a good product

    Cons

    Technology is lagging; invested in top managmenet and not is developers or technology. Poor leadership, rampant turnoever at all levels; management is overpaid while middle and lower level people are under paid. Toxic, predatory environment.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Go home - you don't know what you are doing and you have sunk this company.

    I have been working at Acronis

    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 ManagementAdvice

    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

    I have been working at Acronis

    Pros

    I can't think of any. It has been a roller coaster since I started. So many different managers, and a lay off when they say they want to grow.

    Cons

    * Management doesn't listen
    * Management doesn't communicate changes that are made
    * Management talks down to their employees. They say "my business" when it's actually "our business" we are all trying to reach a number.
    * turnover is at an all time high. I've seen three general managers over the course of 2 years.
    * They are bringing in several people from other countries to "manage" but they don't understand how business in the US works.
    * When people leave the refuse to pay their vacation time.
    * HR won't respond when there are issues. And when you need an immediate response they blow you off.
    * Very shady business practices. Discounting for one not for another. Accounts stolen by other account managers. Management has no control over their business.
    * lots of pressure from upper management to commit to a number without having the data or resources to figure out the data.
    * They have hired several new "leaders" that don't understand the business. They don't understand how things work and they don't give effective training.
    * The latest version of the product has not worked for several customers and the refuse to do any RMAs for these issues.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Listen to the people on the floor - we're the ones that know what's going on in the field.

    I have been working at Acronis

    Pros

    Good colleagues/free snack/soda-perks of a small company

    Cons

    Acronis is a joke of a place to work for. Senior management has no clue what they are doing and they continue to promote people within management or hire management that have no clue what they are doing. Employees are not valued at all, no reviews so no raises and the attitude is that everyone is replaceable. Everyone I knew was and is miserable and most of the employees are looking for a new job (no big shocker here.)

    HR is to laugh at and cannot be trusted (there is no employee/employer confidentiality there).
    There is no work/life balance there as they expect you to be available at any time and work late. It's all about making the sales # there, Marketing management is nonexistence and they frankly have no clue what they are doing!

    I would not recommend anyone to work there-not even my own worst enemy!

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Hire veterns in the industry that actually know how to run a company and get rid of existing management.

    I worked at Acronis

    Pros

    Worked with some talented likeable coworkers. Company's software products pretty good, some won awards. Free snacks & beverages, and lunches catered sometimes

    Cons

    Really inept executive team, many in titles and roles far beyond their training and experience - their in way over their heads and it showed daily. Ineffective absentee CEO. No clear strategy, goals, roles, review process and poor mgmt communication. Culture of secrecy; place founded by Russians and many decisions still made in Moscow by founders & their cronys or behind closed doors by exec team. Awful , depressing work environment, lots of demands but little support – senior mgmt quick to blame others but never take reponsibilty for how their own actions (or inaction) and bad decisions effect entire org. Mgmt shows no desire to develop or keep employees, people viewed as easily replaced. Thus limited possiblity for career growth or financial gain, esp. for sales since products sold mainly thru partners. Benefits suck compared 2 other co.’s (lower pay, no 401K match, less vacation days, etc.). Morale very low. Wish I left a lot sooner than I did, much happier now.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Recognize your own limitations and hire people into roles that match their skills and experience. Trust people with relevent expertise to do their jobs and get out of their way.

    I worked at Acronis

    Pros

    same level coworkers are fantastic - some amazing people.

    Cons

    management is poor. very poor. unprofessional. company-wide distributions fraught with spelling/grammar errors. low level expectation. cannot pull in better people because better people can likely sense they won't be challenged/appreciated. also almost weekly reports of internal theft from headsets to water bottles. no review process so raises nonexistant.
