A company that truly respects and appreciates your contributions

I have been working at Accelrys full-time for less than a year

ProsThe best thing from my own experience, is that they don't micro-manage you. They hire you to do the job and don't feel the need to hover over you to ensure you get it done. They provide a friendly open environment where everyone works together, without a defined hierarchy. You are treated as an equal by everyone, regardless of the initials that follow their name. They strive to provide a relaxed atmosphere and grant employees opportunities to have fun with their co-workers, whether it be at the weekly on site happy hours, to the amenities like, pool table, shuffleboard and Foosball or the full gym and basketball court. I also like the relaxed dress code.

ConsHonestly, I haven't found any. I'll update my review should I stumble across something later.

Advice to Senior ManagementKeep doing what you're doing. You've assembled an eclectic group of people that are on board with the companies goals and work to continue pushing us forward.

Great work environment where everyone is respectful of others.

I have been working at Accelrys

ProsAn excellent place for a self-starter to make great contributions to excellent products.
Upper management really wants to make a difference in the quality of the products.

ConsThis is no place for someone who only wants to "get by." So you have to put your whole heart into what you're doing. If you're not a balanced person, you could over-extend yourself and burn out.
