    I have been working at Cytel Inc full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    I've been at Cytel a few years and I've seen the company move in a positive direction. It is a great company to grow your career as the company keeps growing and more opportunities are opening up for career advancement. The benefits are top notch, some highlights are 401k with match and affordable health insurance and dental. The salaries seem to be around market rate for the industry.

    Cons

    Company has grown but some departments are lacking headcount needed to help with work/life balance of current employees. The annual bonus is below market rate. Doesn't seem to be any reason behind how much they give you.

    Advice to Management

    Keep growing the company and hiring great employees to help some of the departments that are understaffed. Work on making the annual bonus more comparable to other similar companies, as well as making the employee know why they were given that amount, i.e performance, percentage of salary.

    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.

    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.

    Your feedback is valuable. I am troubled by your encounter with poor infrastructure. Your reference to “filthy” conditions appears overstated, but we are far from ignoring it: we will swiftly investigate. We had a meeting today with the entire Bengaluru team to encourage additional ...

    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.

    Pros

    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...

    Please keep your Management, TL, STL, project managers and Sr. Project managers in check. Please see if they are enabling the business or just getting paid because they are with company from long time.
