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)

    I have been working at Accelrys

    Pros

    Happy Hours
    Cafeteria
    Clean Bathrooms
    (Notice I can not think of anything positive work related to say about the company?)

    Cons

    Management is very risk averse and accordingly tends to micromanage its employees which is kind of a downer if you're not used to it.
    If management values its employees, I haven't seen it.
    Communication from the top is abyssmal.
    Finally, if you're looking to work with the best and brightest, you won't find that here.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Let people do their job. Have confidence in your employees' abilities and give them the support and recognition they deserve. Finally, talk to your employees.
