I have been working at Accelrys

Pros

Lots of great customers with a global footprint
Stable and a money maker
Not a cut throat environment
Growing both organically and through M/A.

Cons

Too much of a focus on Science and not enough in other areas.
Slow to take up new technologies internally and within products.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Be better listeners and follow up on feedback. Provide more career guidance and opportunities to those looking to move up in their career versus waiting for them to leave.

    Pros

    A place suitable to someone who does not mind tackling an inordinate number of action items all of which are super critical.

    Cons

    Potential to grow the business is guaranteed, the growth is not commensurate to the potential

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Challenge the team to get out of their comfort zone. Currently most workers are doing what they know how best to do (which is good for staus-quo but not necessarily effective for demonstrating growth)
