"My experience at Accelrys was terrible"

Current Employee - Manager
Doesn't Recommend
Disapproves of CEO

Pros

Happy Hours
Cafeteria
Clean Bathrooms
(Notice I can not think of anything positive work related to say about the company?)

Cons

Management is very risk averse and accordingly tends to micromanage its employees which is kind of a downer if you're not used to it.
If management values its employees, I haven't seen it.
Communication from the top is abyssmal.
Finally, if you're looking to work with the best and brightest, you won't find that here.

Advice to Management

Let people do their job. Have confidence in your employees' abilities and give them the support and recognition they deserve. Finally, talk to your employees.
