    I worked at Accelrys full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Met some very bright and interesting people. Company is very flexible with working from home, etc. Some products are fun to work with (I am a geek). One senior person I hold responsible for a lot of dissatisfaction has now left.

    Cons

    Management was always chasing the next company to take over. Company was fragmented and did not feel as one company. Commercially the decision in life sciences to prioritise lab notebooks over science was probably right but as a scientist I felt left behind. Company had (has) large churn. Services were punished for success.

    Advice to Management

    I would guess there are no notebook companies left to take over but even if there are stop taking them over. Integrate the technologies you have acquired. There is science in life science, Pipeline Pilot is seen too much as an integration platform and the likes of Knime/Python are taking over the datamining field.
