I have been working at Accelrys full-time (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.

    Pros

    Great science. Good people. Lots of moving parts to integrate, but a good team of execs workingon making it happen. Messy at times, but overall for the greater good.

    Cons

    lots of change in today's world so for folks uneasy with change, not a smooth ride

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Politics, no appreciation for long term customers, killing most important product lines

    Pros

    Good place for people who can handle changes in direction on a regular basis and know how to handle politics.

    Cons

    Company is wrought with politics. They only care about M&A's and positioning themselves to be sold. They don't appreciate long-term employees and are not thinking of products that customers rely on heavily. They think that R&D employees are easily replaced instead of recognizing the complexity of work experience the products require.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Make sure people in headquarters work with people in remote offices and that they don't ignore or sabotage them. Stop promoting people who are not respected by your employees. Don't forget your Cheminformatics baseline.
