    I have been working at Accelrys full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    The best thing from my own experience, is that they don't micro-manage you. They hire you to do the job and don't feel the need to hover over you to ensure you get it done. They provide a friendly open environment where everyone works together, without a defined hierarchy. You are treated as an equal by everyone, regardless of the initials that follow their name. They strive to provide a relaxed atmosphere and grant employees opportunities to have fun with their co-workers, whether it be at the weekly on site happy hours, to the amenities like, pool table, shuffleboard and Foosball or the full gym and basketball court. I also like the relaxed dress code.

    Cons

    Honestly, I haven't found any. I'll update my review should I stumble across something later.

    Advice to Management

    Keep doing what you're doing. You've assembled an eclectic group of people that are on board with the companies goals and work to continue pushing us forward.

    Pros

    Encourage friendly environment among peers and good benefits.

    Management direction changes frequently, every year new organisation.

    Advice to Management

    Need solid direction, instead of changing focus every year.
