Pros

The 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.

Cons

There 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 Management

There 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.

    Pros

    Very easy to get started, training is optimal for anyone with a high school education. Management was eager to assign difficult projects to eager employees. Ideas for optimization were met by management with eager ears.

    Cons

    No real career advancement available if you start too low in the company, mainly blue collar work. Even if you have a degree and have many accomplishments, you will be looked over. Management was horrible at best. No real supervision or management was available over the course of my career. In a performance based department this is not ideal, and many hours were wasted in overtime.

    Advice to Management

    At least in certain departments, supervisors need to supervise, not shop on amazon all day then complain about the work not being finished on time.
