Focusing on constructive solution, rather than micro management to drive people crazy all the time.

    Pros

    Great colleagues, and collegial environment. Interesting product portfolio. Location is good.

    Cons

    There is a large disconnect between executive management & real issues in workforce.
    The Workplace is under-resourced for the set objectives in all departments. The company has experienced annual redundancies (7 years running) & struggles for profitability. The lack of financial stability leads to limited growth & development opportunities. Annual Salary adjustments do not keep up with inflation. Human resources management is quite poor.

    Advice to Management

    Develop more open & receptive communication with workforce. Work on focused strategy & reasonable objectives for work force.

    I have been working at Accelrys full-time (More than 8 years)

    Pros

    Competitive salary. Most of the people are great to work with. Great benefits. Work life balance.

    Cons

    As most companies, you will find work place politics there and some director's are looking for you to kiss it.
