    I worked at Accela, Inc. full-time (More than 3 years)


    - Strong growth prospects / expectations. - Road map has exciting improvements in the future (planned). - Some good new staff come on board recently, but they usually don't last long. - Trying to start offer better perks for office workers


    - Corrosive culture - starting from the top. - Very weak senior leadership. Old timers who are close to each other still in top. Many of them poorly qualified, missing skillsets and no experience in managing larger groups of people. Some aren't even technology literate but are masters of spin. - Lack of professionalism, blame always goes down the ladder, but issues keep occurring. - Earlier this year Accela fired 30 staff without a days notice, while friends of senior leadership were on a 'retreat' in Italy. If you think of joining Accela - be extra diligent in your homework. There are a litany of ex Accela employees out there who would support all of these statements - try to find some and talk to them.

    Advice to Management

    To the investors who recently injected massive amounts of funds into Accela: Clean out the stale, under performing senior leadership - especially the ones that have been there the longest. Otherwise you won't grow and you will be stuck with a bunch of separate products that aren't integrated, and heavy overhead.
