    Disapproves of CEO

    I worked at Covance full-time

    Pros

    Co-workers and benefits Flexibility for time away for family needs Proximity to downtown Indy and airport Parking

    Cons

    Middle management Nepotism ENVISION Not keen on giving minorities key positions

    Advice to Management

    Cut your losses and figure out another option for CLS before it's really too late - Envision is NOT it! Place emphasis on getting strategic input from your experienced employees, not just from top level management folks alone; otherwise you will end up with one envision strategies after another. Use Envision as your LIS; as it is originally designed for! Figure something else for Zavacor.


  2. Great place, people, and entry level opportunities. High turnover and horrible pay.

    Pros

    Great work atmosphere. People are great. Ideal for recent college grads or experienced industry personnel.

    Cons

    High turnover rate is a result of recent college grads looking to move the next level, but not yet considered experienced by Covance standards. In other words, you must leave and return for promotions. VERY low pay for internal employees. The pay scale does not reflect geographical location. Standard company policy states employee promotions receive between 3-15% increase (an act of God is needed to get 15%) regardless if market salary is far greater. Similar jobs within 10 miles radius pays minimum $10K more. Health benefits are extremely high, but who's isn't..

    Advice to Management

    Pay your employees.
