    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.

    I have been working at Acronis full-time (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 Management

    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 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 Management

    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 (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 Management

    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 (More than 8 years)

    Pros

    Well-established, profitable fast growing global business operating in hot markets of Backup/DR and Mobility. Strong highly competitive products. Good benefits for employees. Continued professional growth for those who want to work hard. Lots of positive change in the last 6 months since the original founder came back on board as CEO.

    Cons

    Some minor troubles with overall direction for the business and subsequent change in Senior Management that occurred in the last 2 years. This resulted in uncertainty for some employees and probably some bad reviews, but has since been resolved completely. The business and internal culture are back on track and the future is looking very good.

    Advice to Management

    Keep it up!

    - Forgo the Kimball Farm already. People are tired having the company's annual outing at the same boring place. Organize something similar they do in the Russian office.

    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.
