    Pros

    good benefits
    fair senior management
    less drama than pharma companies
    adequate growth opportunities
    coworkers are generally nice
    pretty good with lateral movement

    Cons

    below average salary
    work is relatively mundane
    healthcare industry is a mess in general
    IT support is abysmal
    productivity is limited due to poor IT infrastructure

    Advice to Management

    The IT infrastructure at Covance seriously limits productivity. I get the sense that while senior management takes IT security seriously, it does not place a strong emphasis on productivity gains from strong IT support. I think my personal productivity could have been twice as high with better IT infrastructure.
