I have been working at Accelrys full-time for more than 10 years

Pros

A lot of smart and dedicated people; bold vision and decisive strategies.

Cons

It has grown too big too fast without proper integration. A lot of waste and sloppy work; not much attention to details. Management doesn't (have time to) pay much attention to employee morale.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

People and quality work are the key to success in the long run.

    I worked at Accelrys full-time for more than 10 years

    Pros

    Accelrys is a scientific software company with a powerful platform, a fairly diverse application stack, and a lot of talented employees. It's still a pretty good place to work but things have changed (some would say for the worse) in recent years as the company struggles to grow to the next level, become a player in the enterprise arena, and invent the field of scientific business intelligence - a term created by Accelrys execs to describe the business area that they believe they dominate.

    Cons

    The recent emphasis on electronic lab notebooks, enterprise software, and processes have diverted resources, reduced efficiencies, and lowered morale in several areas of the company. The quality of the software is reduced when seasoned and skilled developers are treated as interchangeable, plug-and-play bit coders and development schedules are increasingly driven by the calendar rather than by quality. Recent mergers and exec turnover have diluted / muddled corporate culture and values
