Former Employee - Study Technician II in Madison, WI

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

Pros

Great for entry level positions. Good overtime pay. Vibrant city location. School reimbursement along with other benefits.

Cons

Once you've learned the skills, the job can be boring and monotonous. This can leave you feeling boxed in and limited. As with other companies, politics and who you know matters. Work : Life ratio sucks and can be unpredictable.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Increase cohesiveness of how technicians are treated across teams.

    I worked at Covance full-time (more than an year)

    Pros

    -Benefits were good
    -PTO was fair
    -Good work-life balance (for most)
    -Met some of my best friends at work (totally unexpected)
    -Great resume builder

    Cons

    -NO room for professional advancement unless you "run with a certain crowd"
    -Most supervisors and department managers are med techs or have general education degrees with no real scientific training
    -NOT flexible with educational advancement UNLESS you're an aspiring MT (other degree programs i.e. MBA, PhD are not supported)
    -Employee review structure is designed to promote departmental competition and distracts team unity

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    -Utilize the talents of your employees
    -Restructure the employee reviews for bonuses to be fair and maintain department morale
    -Support individual growth and development (not everyone aspires to be a MT terminally)
