    Growth via M&A has some benefits but also some downsides

    I worked at Accelrys full-time (more than 8 years)

    Pros

    Good products with a heavy emphasis on the science. Used to have less focus on software engineering but this is now improving year-on-year. Engineers and scientists do what is needed to get the product out, on-time with quality. Growth via M&A.

    Cons

    Organic growth is limited and so mergers and acquisitions (M&A) are always at the forefront. Integration of new technology into Accelrys stack not optimal. Legacy products linger. Seems to take a long time to effect change.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Upper management domain knowledge could be better. Company vision not always clear.

    Pros

    A lot of smart and dedicated people; bold vision and decisive strategies.

    Cons

    It has grown too big too fast without proper integration. A lot of waste and sloppy work; not much attention to details. Management doesn't (have time to) pay much attention to employee morale.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    People and quality work are the key to success in the long run.
