It is a great place to work it has just lost sight of its employee focus recently.

Research Assistant I (Current Employee)
Indianapolis, IN

ProsThe work environment is very positive. I work around a lot of talented and awesome people. They also pay pretty well and give us great flexibility in our schedules.

ConsThere is a lack of communication of performance to employees. There also can be a lot of unmet promises as far as what the description of the the job is, and what you will actually do.

Advice to Senior ManagementThere appears to be a lot of interest in getting issues solved for employee satisfaction and engagement at Covance, but there seems to be no real delivery on resolving the issues.

Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend
