    Pros

    It is a company that has good potential and good products. Our current technology is excellent. Customers like our products. We are moving to a VAR model which is fun to be involved with.

    Cons

    Exec management here is the pits. They are way over their heads and it shows. CEO and sales exec VP are a cartoon. They treat employees like gerbils on a treadmill. Mid-level management is good but gets little help from the top. Poor pay and a revolving door for employees. I don't see management making good decisions to grow the company.

    Advice to Management

    Bring in more people with more diverse software experience than you have. Bring in more people with VAR experience.

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

    Pros

    Can meet good people within the company and amongst the clients.

    Cons

    Good people move on as soon as possible.
    Incompetent management on all levels, feudal style.
    Flagship product's vertical is clueless, painful to watch.
    Long, continuous noise by CEO about conquering the market with nothing being changed in the field.
    Channel Management is as dull as pitiful.
    Hiring a lot of "top-gun" dinosaurs, those who had been rejected by all other places.
    Dim-witted executives' paradise.

    Advice to Management

    Hire real CEO, real VP's and people who can think, work and execute.

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

    Pros

    Company has great products that constantly receive good feedbacks. Singapore is set to grow the R&D team from 5 to 200 by year 2020. It's good to know that the company is serious about investing for good people and technology, which indirectly churns out better products and services.

    I joined the company in May 2016 and in July 2016 need to be away for 2 months of sabbatical leave for family matters. Even though Acronis is a dynamic company that needed everyone to be fully involved, but it still caters to different situations with a human touch. Not many companies will be able to compromise on such.

    Cons

    Systems and processes need to be calibrated for smoother work flow. Standardization of policies and across countries will take time to implement.

    Point is no matter which companies, big MNC or reputable companies that we go to, there will be problems just in different forms. There is no 1 policy that suits everyone. It is about adapting and be realistic, and as long as the company and management is making an effort about changing to be better, it is good enough for me.

    Advice to Management

    Company resources should only be for business usage.

    Pros

    Some of the people are nice and willing to help. Like IT, HR, finance - they are they real people

    Cons

    Sales team were given Unachievable targets and no guidance how to meet it. The team there are not easy to work with, they have their own agenda.

    Exec team are terrible, no management skill, again they only focus on personal agenda.

    Advice to Management

    Find a real CEO to lead the team
