Former Employee - Study Technician II in Madison, WI
Former Employee - Study Technician II in Madison, WI
No opinion of CEO

I worked at Covance full-time (More than a year)

Pros

Great Benefits! Good pay, lots of overtime available (although often required) Great experience builder for anyone fresh out of college looking for entry level work Much of the work is very interesting and rewarding Doing great work generally for a good cause

Cons

Atrocious work/life balance NOT an easy position to have with a family life, unpredictable and long hours Work can often be very monotonous and boring Extremely stressful at times, massive turn-over at this position Team instability from turnover and high stress with training new members often leads to a depressed and overworked atmosphere.

Advice to Management

Keep teams together by limiting turnover. A stable team environment would vastly improve work atmosphere.

    I have been working at Covance full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Lots of opportunities to learn new skills, great compensation and benefits. Company values your education and has tuition reimbursement. You start off with 21 or more days of paid vacation time.

    Cons

    Can have long hours and high stress depending on position and department. Toxicology is especially busy right now and experiencing high turnover.

    Advice to Management

    Spend more time talking to the people actually conducting the research - inlife technicians in the vivarium. We make your business possible.
