    I have been working at Cytel Inc full-time (Less than a year)


    Company generally cares about its employees.
    Good company to grow your career with. Seems to be a new promotion almost everyday.
    Great work environment and culture.
    Great pay and benefits.
    Work life balance is good for most and the company is very flexible when it comes to your hours. (some departments are understaffed however)
    Company is growing fast.
    Little turnover rate which speaks to how well employees are treated here.


    Paid once monthly which is hard to get used to for some US employees since most companies in the US get paid bi-weekly.
    Some departments are stretched thin and more employees are needed.

    Advice to Management

    Continue what you are doing. Most employees are happy with the culture at Cytel. Maybe perhaps look into filling holes in some departments where more headcount is needed.

    Average Interview


    I applied online. The process took a week. I interviewed at Cytel Inc (Cambridge, MA) in December 2016.


    Really nice interview. From the interview and meeting a few folks in the break room, Cytel looks to be a great company growing at a fast clip due to the quality work they provide sponsors in biometrics.

    Interviewed with five people over the course of four hours in their Cambridge, MA HQ.
