I worked at Accelrys full-time (More than 5 years)
The mission of the business is compelling.
Being part of a larger company (DS) comes with frustrations.
I applied online. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Accelrys (Milford, MA) in August 2015.
First round was conducted by two people: Hiring Manager and Principal Software Engineer. The questions were mainly based on my past experience and project management like How do you deliver high quality code? Then I was invited for 2 hour onsite interview. Before interview, I was provided a design question and was asked to be prepare for discussion. On the day, I had to talk around 9 people. Some asked technical questions. Some asked behavioral and some were past project related. Finally, I was asked to design the application which they sent me prior. I discussed it with Principal Engineer and Database Admin. In the end, I was given a sheet with 2 SQL query questions. I got a call from HR next day that they wanted to move forward with an offer.
