ClipLab Cytel Training lab- Clinical SAS Training Business@Mumbai Banglore Pune I just want to share my experience here because no one should be fool like me!. In Cliplab /Cytel, needy students get trapped by them we should do something for that, its just money collecting business with very poor placement . They are doing this in education and employment sector really shame. For CSTR course, there is almost NO placement. After completing course lots of CSTR trained candidates sitting at home. There are few students from poor family. They paid huge amount due to Cliplab/ Cytel fake 100% job commitment. CliPLab, Your end day will also come. staffs are theives and cheater.They just make money from the students and cheat them by taking money and they won't give you any job opportunities. They are good at scamming people pls don't b fool for job. I took admission to a very expensive SAS course based on their 100% job guarantee within 6 to 9 months. So, a very serious suggestion, Please never ever join CliPLab/Cytel for clinical sas training . Higher level management is not aware of wats happening in the company that's so annoying.Fake 100% job commitment given by CliPLab/Cytel counselor.CCAP course mrans No live project experience.CCAP 1yr on job training in hand salary Rs 4,300-/.Its a long term clinical sas training such a experience not counted as live project experience.So its a Wastage of time. Its a training institute only. Cliplab counselor committing something and delivery nothing.They are cheating with huge numbers of students. It is started for training business only. i not getting placed in any of the companies after 10 months. I havent got any mail regarding interview since 10 months.Since we had a good rapport i expect a job from you that you committed 100%all the time. Google gives very limited space to share the experience with CliPLab/Cytel . I paid almost Rs 3 Lacs it only cause you assured immediate and 100% job placement. They cheated Students as Name of training, Company name Cytel and placement , Plz Don't join this Cliplab/Cytel institute. Friends I request all of them who gave money and suffering to come together to close Cliplab permanently. Less
