    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.

    Disorganized environment

    Former Employee - Anonymous Employee
    Former Employee - Anonymous Employee

    I worked at Acronis

    Pros

    Product good, Consumer product widely used, some good people internationally and good R and D. APJ and EMEA seem ok..

    Cons

    Has no clear or stated direction with a Sales and Marketing plan.
    Turnover is massive.. Greater than 40% annually with Sales even higher.
    No CEO with a long term commitment and a disorganized leadership team. Can be quite nasty also, where most are afraid to speak.
    Bizarre social media 'speak'.,

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Get a decent CEO, a competent head of sales and some board members that can make a decision collectively rather than counting their $$$.

    management has no clear strategy and technology is for consumers
