    I have been working at Cytel Inc full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    I've been a the company for over 5 years now and it's the best company I have every worked at. We are now approaching a mid-size company with 700+ employees worldwide, but it still has a great community feel. Everyone is encouraged to speak up if there are issues and often they are heard. Much different from the "cog in the machine" feel that I've had at other companies. Plenty of growth opportunities in all departments as well as cross-department shifts as the company keeps expanding. Having a strong positive work environment is paramount. It really feels like customers AND employees come first. It's been a wonderful experience.

    Cons

    Just the normal ebb and flow of pharmaceutical contract research. Sometimes the workload gets heavy, but that is to be expected.

    Advice to Management

    Need a bit more infrastructure to have consistency across training/onboarding process.

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

    Pros

    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.

    Cons

    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.

    Pros

    Cytel is a friendly, supportive company with an almost family-like atmosphere despite its growing size. There are great opportunities to learn here. The clients and projects provide interesting challenges and the work is innovative, particularly in the strategic consulting and software divisions. The biostatistics and data management division employs a rigorous approach to ensure quality of work products for clients, as one would hope and expect from a CRO with FDA-regulated trials.

    Cons

    There are few downsides! I had thought that having team members across different time zones amongst Cytel's locations would be a challenge to productivity, but did not find this to be the case; in fact, it often meant that important work was completed and ready for review by the time you arrived for work the next morning!

    Advice to Management

    Continue the vision of growth while remaining focused on what the company is known for - statistical science, programming and data management. Foster additional connections between statisticians in the different divisions of Cytel for the benefit of all and the company.
