    Pros

    Location
    Products
    People-Intelligent scientists and software engineers

    Cons

    Some products are highly complex.
    They are in dire need of top marketing/sales folks to position their products.
    Some of the folks in the management team are completely clueless, and the management keeps changing. The executive recruiting folks hiring the management team are perhaps inexperienced themselves!!

    Advice to Management

    Focus on a company that can acquire Accelrys.
