    I worked at Acronis full-time for more than a year

    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.

    I have been working at Acronis full-time for 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 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 for 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 ManagementAdvice

    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 for 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 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.

    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.
