    I worked at Covance

    Pros

    -Benefits start on day 1.
    -The work gives you a good window to health-care reimbursement practices.

    Cons

    -CRONYISM
    -Senior management is out of touch with career development and recognition of employees.
    -Salary not on par with fair market value
    -Outdated system of work flow.
    -Unrealistic metrics.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    I can only speak to Covance-Market Access division, not Covance as a whole. You will work hard for very little compensation in pay or recognition in the form of advancement. If you are not in the 'circle", you will not last long enough to reap the fruits of your labor. Better to get what you can out of Covance and seek employment else where. From everyone I know that has left, they have used it as a stepping stone.
