    I worked at Covance full-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    Affordable health benefits
    Generous PTO package, in my opinion
    Able to work with different sites - networking with different kinds of people from all around the globe

    Cons

    At my site, there was favoritism. Even if you worked your butt off, only the "favorites" were promoted. However, most of the time, new hires were external applicants, much to the dismay of all the internal applicants that had applied.
    Management is very secretive.
    Compensation was not that great for the amount of work you did. If you did a good job at something, that was added to your "job" without the pay of course.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Too many people per office room. Not enough air, dirty toilets. Very small kitchen. Old PCs, small monitors and bad IT support. Rented old office furniture. Low salaries. Only few benefits. High stress level, high employee turnover
