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

    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!

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

    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.

    Pros

    Acronis takes care of the employees.
    Kitchen stocked with free treats for employees (at least in the US office), regular company events and celebrations, as well as cool swag - all these little things add up and show that management wants to reward and motivate the staff.
    On a more important note, Acronis really values hard working and dedicated employees. I have seen (and experienced) fast career growth and real acknowledgement of contributions. You will be rewarded and noticed if you work hard and smart.

    Cons

    You have to be dedicated to the company.
    Acronis has a startup mentality, that everybody has to be passionate about the company and really care. This is not the place for the kind of people who work 9-5 - you have to breathe and live Acronis. While it is not a con for me, it may be for a lot of people.

    Advice to Management

    Please reconsider compensation for some of the higher-ups - not everyone at the top deserves what they get paid.
    And the sales organization doesn't need to be this big.

    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.

    Cons

    - Too much separation among differing departments

    Advice to Management

    Try doing a company gathering rather than a functional gathering (i.e. Marketing only team events, sales only team events, finance only team events, etc.

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

    Pros

    There are and have been some good people here at Acronis. Unfortunately, they either don't last or aren't allowed to effectively do their jobs. The technology is valuable and the products good. The product lines are confusing to work through but are good. If compensation is your only goal and you can "work" your way into the "inner circle" this company drastically overpays.

    Cons

    This is easily the most mismanaged company I have ever come across. The lack of effective leadership and accountability is extraordinary. The phrase "top heavy" describes Acronis. However, they don't even have the right people in those leadership positions. There is no effective channel of communications established. There is no accountability. With effective leadership, this could be an extremely profitable company. What you know doesn't matter at Acronis but rather who you know.

    Advice to Management

    Trim the fat. Replace the executive team with professionals that know how to build a profitable company. If ownership could commit to these changes they would have a highly sought after acquisition target. If left in place, there is no sustainable future as a viable entity.
