    Current Employee - Services Manager
    Current Employee - Services Manager

    I have been working at Accelrys

    Pros

    A place suitable to someone who does not mind tackling an inordinate number of action items all of which are super critical.

    Cons

    Potential to grow the business is guaranteed, the growth is not commensurate to the potential

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Challenge the team to get out of their comfort zone. Currently most workers are doing what they know how best to do (which is good for staus-quo but not necessarily effective for demonstrating growth)
