    I have been working at Cytel Inc full-time for 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...

    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 for 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...

    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.

    "Statistician"

      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

      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.
