    I worked at Acronis full-time (less than a year)

    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

    Free beverages and snacks in the kitchen

    Cons

    Ridiculous amount of turn-over in employees, including upper level management. Management style - both on the sales and technical support side - is aggressive and hostile at times. One of the managers had gotten suspended for some pretty immature actions during the time of my employment there, and I'm sad to say that they are still there today.

    Grossly mismanaged, but possibly back on track with new CEO

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

    Pros

    Good teams, good products, and a very flexible work environment. The company strongly believes in hiring talent as opposed to hiring who is located where they are.

    Cons

    Lack of focus and motivation has left the company hemorrhaging. The third CEO in two years is now on board, which gives hope, but is also indicative of general morale.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Clean house (they did in the past couple of weeks) and give employees a reason to care.

    I worked at Acronis full-time (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 (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 (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 (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.
