As a chemist these softwares one sholud installed in there pc or laptop
Ms office
And some computational softwares like
Gaussian 09
IF UR doing some magnetic study then
Phi software
Always ask raw data to analysts.

It depends on your needs, I suppose. ChemDraw is powerful to sketch Lewis structures, along with additional features (depends on the version you used) such as fragmentation, C-NMR and H-NMR spectra, converts from your structure to its IUPAC's nomenclature and vice versa, etc. But, if you want to do more computational calculation, some applications would do best like AMBER (you could apply for a fee waiver and get an academic license for free), DFTB+ (you are required to apply for a license too, which is free), Quantum Espresso, etc. If you want to do molecular docking, softwares like AutoDock would be useful.
Here is the link to download QE:

Scifinder, is best for your organic synthesis, other software depends upon the instrument you are using

MestReNova is very useful for processing NMR spectra. There is freeware equivalent called TopSpin which can do most of MestReNova can, though it is somewhat prone to crashing and there is a learning curve.
I'll echo Scifinder and ChemDraw that others have said above. I use both of those almost daily.

I wouldn't call Scifinder a software in the context of this discussion. Scifinder is essentially a database of known chemical compounds; it is computerized now and accessible via the browser on your computer - which makes an impression that it is a piece of software.
