Pros

Great science. Good people. Lots of moving parts to integrate, but a good team of execs workingon making it happen. Messy at times, but overall for the greater good.

Cons

lots of change in today's world so for folks uneasy with change, not a smooth ride

Advice to Management

keep up the good work, but remember the "little people"

    I worked at Accelrys full-time

    Pros

    Good place for people who can handle changes in direction on a regular basis and know how to handle politics.

    Cons

    Company is wrought with politics. They only care about M&A's and positioning themselves to be sold. They don't appreciate long-term employees and are not thinking of products that customers rely on heavily. They think that R&D employees are easily replaced instead of recognizing the complexity of work experience the products require.

    Advice to Management

    Make sure people in headquarters work with people in remote offices and that they don't ignore or sabotage them. Stop promoting people who are not respected by your employees. Don't forget your Cheminformatics baseline.
