    I worked at Covance full-time (more than 8 years)

    Pros

    Co-Workers are great to work with
    Benefits are great
    Lots of vacation time

    Cons

    Senior Leadership does not listen to employees and takes care of their own
    More important to be liked than the job you do. Success does not equal opportunity
    Long hours due to centralized control globally

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Sr Leaders do not have the answers.....they need to listen to the people who do the job every day.
    Re-connect with the employees....not by blogs and surveys....too inpersonal,,,,but use focus groups with cross sections of employees.
    Reward people who are successful.....not just the ones liked!
