    Interesting place for short term work. Don't expect long-term stability.

    I have been working at Accelrys

    Pros

    Great colleagues, and collegial environment. Interesting product portfolio. Location is good.

    Cons

    There is a large disconnect between executive management & real issues in workforce.
    The Workplace is under-resourced for the set objectives in all departments. The company has experienced annual redundancies (7 years running) & struggles for profitability. The lack of financial stability leads to limited growth & development opportunities. Annual Salary adjustments do not keep up with inflation. Human resources management is quite poor.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Develop more open & receptive communication with workforce. Work on focused strategy & reasonable objectives for work force.

    I have been working at Accelrys full-time for more than 10 years

    Pros

    Passion of the people and diversity in corporate culture make Accelrys a high energy environment. Leadership is focused and demanding which is why the company has been able to execute so well in such a tough market filled with competition.

    Cons

    Like all places, corporate politics and opinions can shape directions and careers. Being able to march to a drum that is off-beat can be difficult.
