    Terrific people, all committed to making great products. Good scientists, very open atmosphere for discussions etc. Company looks after people quite well, lots of events/things going on. Good mix of scientists and engineers, very young and driven workforce. Very international too.

    Cons

    Have to find 20 words - not easy. It is a great place!

    Interesting place for short term work. Don't expect long-term stability.

    I have been working at Accelrys

    Pros

    Great colleagues, and collegial environment. Interesting product portfolio. Location is good.

    Cons

    There is a large disconnect between executive management & real issues in workforce.
    The Workplace is under-resourced for the set objectives in all departments. The company has experienced annual redundancies (7 years running) & struggles for profitability. The lack of financial stability leads to limited growth & development opportunities. Annual Salary adjustments do not keep up with inflation. Human resources management is quite poor.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Develop more open & receptive communication with workforce. Work on focused strategy & reasonable objectives for work force.
