    Pros

    Great office space, some quality people in individual-contributor roles. Average product with some usefulness to larger companies looking to acquire a company like Acronis.

    Cons

    Horrible CEO and leadership team. Awful company culture where people fear for their jobs, leaders are replaced if they disagree with the CEO. Mid-level managers treat their teams like crap because that is what they see senior leaders doing. All around miserable existence.
    When the Head of HR and then the Recruiting Manager leave, you know it is bad!

    Advice to Management

    Stop berating the employees and threatening to lay people off. Start rewarding people for achievements instead of demoralizing them by insulting them.

    I worked at Acronis (Less than a year)

    Pros

    They have a good product. Hours were good. Location was good. People were nice.

    Cons

    Management was all over the board. Strange. Wasn't much guidance. Behavior was odd to say the least.

    Advice to Management

    Be more professional

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

    Pros

    There are some really bright people there.

    Cons

    The global staff could be there one day, gone tomorrow. You can email someone and wonder why you haven't heard back from them. Reason? They're fired! Turn over is brutal.

    Advice to Management

    Decide what you really need in staff and value the people that work hard for you. Treat people like humans. Way too many "managers."

    I have been working at Acronis full-time

    Pros

    *Solid technology
    *Newfound commitment to marketing
    *Decent salary
    *Leadership really pushing to build $1B company
    *Great opportunity in cloud marketplace for data protection

    Cons

    *Constant changes at leadership level
    *Way too many 'cooks in the kitchen', the organization is way too top heavy
    *Sales Compensation plans are capped and are not designed to drive the right business behaviors
    *Company is trying to do too many things at once
    *No room for growth

    Advice to Management

    When you make a plan, stick with it. Also, the sales compensation plans are designed for a larger company that has a market-leading technology and a commodity core product, not for a company who is trying desperately to take market-share away from larger companies and that not many people know about. Act like you care about your employees instead of treating them like a 'means to an end'. Keep investing in marketing, the biggest issue (aside from constant turnover and lack of execution) is that the marketplace is not fully aware of Acronis and all of its solutions.

    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.

    - 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.

    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 recognized product. Training is an adequate start, but new product roll outs could be better

    Cons

    The biggest con would be the lack of help with personal development within one's assigned area. The question arises, "does the company want me to make a career here, or just passing through?"

    Advice to Management

    Train more. Be more clear on career opportunities within the company

    We recognize this as an area to develop and have plans to improve the employee development, training and career paths within 2014.
