    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... Too complicated. I mean why there are components like child education for bachelor's? Can't it be more bias free? Lot of different tools for time tracing and management!!

    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.

    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.
