    Negative Outlook

    Pros

    None as on date. If I talk when I joined this company, yes we used to have some pros but not now.

    Cons

    There is no Policy for any process.
    Junk of people filled with 1st team from years and years
    Probation period for 6 months even for 10+years experience persons. You have to pray your manager otherwise he won't confirm your probation.

    Advice to Management

    Fill your thoughts with new blood.

    Thank you for taking the time to write a review. Fact is we have never had a QA Engineer position in Bengaluru, so the content of the review is puzzling.

    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.

    I worked at Cytel Inc full-time

    Pros

    Nice employee friendly environment.. Lot of fun activities like cricket badminton lots else.. Enjoy work culture... People get stat together as family ... Salary is also not too bad

    Cons

    As Statistician, not core stat work... they labelled as bio-statistician but work more or less statistical programmer. For initial days, it is fine but we can not grow as statistician in long term goal. Lots of politics at work place. instead should concentrate on the technical work..

    Advice to Management

    Salary structure should be standardized. Some people get 25% hike and some 8 %... This is an arbitrary example... It should be standardized somewhere. Insurance policy vendor very bad.
