    "Statistician"

    Positive Outlook

    I have been working at Cytel Inc full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    The company has very nice working environment. People in the statistics department work very hard. Good balance of work and personal life. Flexible working style

    Cons

    Some of the projects are deadline driven. It is a little stressful to work on such projects but it can be handled. I would say it is cons of the type of work not the cons of the company

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

    Pros

    Work life balance and flexibility are the highlights. Pays well!!

    Cons

    Sometimes the management knowingly ignore the concerns of there employees. Extremely bad poorly managed infrastructure (particularly the Bangalore office in India). Lots of feedback from employees but they never cared. Sometimes it's discourage to go to office because of this bad poorly maintained office at Bangalore. Said that, the Hyderabad office is good and well maintained. Salary components are not well structured......

    Advice to Management

    Request you to upgrade to a decent work place, particularly for the Bangalore location. All of the employees working here have the same opinion and has directly spoken to the higher management but all ignore. The conditions are filthy.

    Pros

    You will get easily settle down here. The work environment is very good. You can have work-life balance. Salary is also at par with the industry norm.

    Cons

    No proper vision regarding employee's growth. So if you are very much ambitious, not a good place to stay. Management does not have proper and focussed goals.

    Good Management. Every aspect is good but please see cons.

    Cons

    No work - thats why people have work life balance per se. No standards, people work as per their own rules. BEWARE of their interview team. Will highlight as if they have lot of projects and their will be so many opportunities, but in reality there are none. All other reviews are of old employees who have gotten paid huge amounts for being loyal to company with no to little skill sets compared to industry. Have been...
