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

    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

    Pros

    Kitchen always stocked with goodies.

    Cons

    No value for hardwork. No value for human ethic.

    Advice to Management

    Value your employees. They are not only means to make you money. DO not use and throw them.

    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

    Great work/life balance, interesting products.

    Cons

    Nonsensical, ever-changing, egomaniacal leadership makes it difficult to focus on doing good work.

    Advice to Management

    Get organized, trust you hired the right people, let them do their jobs, and dial down the insanity.

    I worked at Acronis (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    in a small team, there is a decent amount of collaboration, we used recent software, so no limping along with old stuff.

    Cons

    Too many C-Level executives, Acronis will fire the people doing the work, bring in some big exec from Microsoft and they bring in contractors who do nothing but run up big bills. The people who have been there the longest are the first to get pushed out. Massive changeover in strategy and management every 3 months. Employee's who couldn't hack it under the pressure and leave are brought back as high paid contractors who enact revenge against the people who outperformed them the first time around.

    Advice to Management

    stop bringing in big money people to run a sinking ship! shore up the business with good workers and a core set of good managers who get their teams to succeed!

    I worked at Acronis full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Company had a good CEO and people but everything was changed. New CEO is Russian, company belongs to him and it influences a lot on the way the company works.

    Cons

    Decisions are made by small circle of people close to CEO, sometimes not even professionals. Easy to get title which does not mean such experience. CEO and his management changes their mind every day, they are not able to manage their people properly and close projects successfully. There are always limited resources and new management is not able to manage them efficiently.

    Advice to Management

    Stop hiring people (management) who worked in big companies and have no idea what to do with limited resources.

    Pros

    Has some great people in the middle and lower management areas of the company who are the heartbeat and commercial engine of the company

    Cons

    Poor ego driven senior management who are more interested in gaining favour with the CEO rather than great execution and leadership. this together with disjointed process does not allow the real talent in the company to thrive

    Advice to Management

    Concentrate on being great leaders not on the title on your business card

    Pros

    A few smart people there.

    Cons

    Way too many product lines for a company without strong marketing and PR engine. Top executive team has no direction.

    Advice to Management

    Respect the people and treat them well. They will in turn work harder for you and turn the company around. Otherwise they will abandon ship.
