    I have been working at Acronis full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    There is a lot of growth potential here at Acronis. It doesn't happen overnight, but many of those who continue to work hard and deliver results are given more responsibilities and opportunities.
    Each position has an individual contributor aspect (even at higher levels) which means you must be hands on and willing to do a lot of work yourself. Due to the size and nature of the company, most roles cover multiple areas of their department and business. This gives you more ownership of the work, career growth, and development. It also means you can see the impact of your work and know that you were the person who delivered (or helped) those results.
    Another plus is that Acronis is worldwide, which allows you to work with different people, cultures, and regions.
    In all, Acronis has given me so much over the last 3 + years - a career, a family, long lasting relationships, and unforgettable memories.

    Cons

    Acronis is not for everyone because it is a fast-paced environment with higher than average workloads and responsibilities. There also have been some changes in management that have caused a little turbulence throughout the years here. But if you can manage the changes, fast pace and heavy workload, Acronis will benefit you so much.
    The work can be challenging and stressful, but nothing worthwhile is ever easy :-)

    Advice to Management

    Keep doing the frequent Global All-Hands meetings with the CEO, like we have the past year or so. The transparency on the vision and strategy, to all levels of the organization keeps people motivated and unified.

    Pros

    The company has Good products that have value and need for its customer base. Constantly developing advancements and updates for its products that are beneficial to its customer base. Definitely in a great position vs its competition

    Cons

    The company provides No 401k match. Compensation is somewhat low or barely on par with industry. Horrible customer data, and data integrity with no plan or clear plan to improve. These data issues make it difficult for proper management on a customer and employee side

    Advice to Management

    Plan for proper management of business after initial sale. Help departments work together to accomplish a common goal

    I have been working at Acronis full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Acronis is in the midst the massive digital transformation movement. Here I get to experiment with new ideas on how to grow the business. Because we are a mid sized company, each person's decisions have a direct impact on the success of the company.

    Cons

    Acronis is in a fragmented and competitive market. It means that you have to always be alert and ready to respond. I love this environment but not for everyone.

    Advice to Management

    Keep challenging us to be our best.

    I have been working at Acronis full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    There are some great people that work for Acronis - when I first started working here I loved it. Everyone was so friendly, encouraging and helpful. I never had an issue approaching upper management for help or even to say hello. The company used to foster those kinds of relationships.

    The software is also incredible. The product should be so easy to sell!

    Cons

    The CEO has spent way too much money on F1 marketing to keep up with other Russian software companies - and the employees are paying for it. The pay is below average salaries in the area. A handful of managers and VP level people have been let go and we no longer have company get-togethers to foster those "team building" relationships.

    We don't have 401k matching and the mood in the Burlington office is much more somber, but at least we have formula 1 racing cars with brand new Playstations that no one plays.

    Advice to Management

    If the bulk of our market is in the US, how about we focus on the US and not to start sponsoring a racing team that has little to no following here in the US? Have more Friday afternoon get togethers for your employees.

    If you are going to fire our managers, at least communicate with us and let us know the structure change. I don't necessarily think our CEO is fit to run the company and I think some of the execs aren't the right "fit".

    This company was amazing when I started and I loved coming to the office every day. Now I'm concerned about job security.

    Pros

    None. Stay away, keep looking. You will eventually be replaced with a Russian or some inexperienced friend of CEO or other exec. Nice office space with some good food and drink

    Cons

    Too many to list, now way to be successful, No long term or short term strategy and constant blaming in marketing

    I have been working at Acronis (Less than a year)

    Pros

    I have worked at Acronis for 8 months now and I have learned so much, also it's right off the highway surrounded by great places to eat during lunch! It is a good work environment with great amenities like snacks and games. Everyone is very supportive of each other and kind. The culture of the company is growing, I see people more social now, with people regularly catching up for happy hour after work and meeting up in the weekend.

    Cons

    No 401k match, but they are working on it

    Advice to Management

    Keep up the good work!

    Pros

    It's a land of opportunity for those willing to push themselves beyond their limits. I have never encountered a ceiling here and my hard work, dedication and loyalty have been consistently rewarded with promotions and significant increases in pay.

    Cons

    The environment can get intense sometimes, especially with fluctuations in the global economy that impacts all businesses. There have been years of management turnover, but senior management has stabilized as the leaders in place now have been there in average for at least 3 years.

    Advice to Management

    Maintain stability in management and continue to invest in the product and services. That's the primary driver of growth for us.

    I have been working at Acronis (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Always had the best toys to play with, always had a chance to explore a technology i'm interested in.
    Acronis relocated me from Moscow and took care of all paperwork and expenses and i'll be always grateful for that.
    You can find as many bright people to talk to as you want.
    There is always an opportunity to step up on your career path and take interesting projects or show some initiative.

    Cons

    There are always some people that you "don't agree" with but i never had a chance to work in the company that didn't have such people.

    Advice to Management

    I would say that we should have some more trust of our management and try to develop a strategy that is more long-term.
