    Please reach out to me, I would like to know more details about your comp plan concerns. To my knowledge no comp plans have been altered like that.

    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!

    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.

    I worked at Acronis full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Free beverages and snacks in the kitchen

    Cons

    Ridiculous amount of turn-over in employees, including upper level management. Management style - both on the sales and technical support side - is aggressive and hostile at times. One of the managers had gotten suspended for some pretty immature actions during the time of my employment there, and I'm sad to say that they are still there today.

    Clueless Ex CEO and senior leadership in HR, OPS, Sales and Support

    Get rid of the very weak executive team (thankfully most left anyway) and get some decent, honest and enthusiastic leaders that can re-build and set a strategy for this lost at sea company.

    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.

    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.
