    Accelrys Employee

    Senior Software Engineer (Former Employee)
    San Diego, CA

    ProsLocation
    Products
    People-Intelligent scientists and software engineers

    ConsSome products are highly complex.
    They are in dire need of top marketing/sales folks to position their products.
    Some of the folks in the management team are completely clueless, and the management keeps changing. The executive recruiting folks hiring the management team are perhaps inexperienced themselves!!

    Advice to Senior ManagementFocus on a company that can acquire Accelrys.

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend – I'm not optimistic about the outlook for this company
