Former Employee - Programmer in Madison, WI

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

Pros

decent benefits (healthcare, 401k, pto). new leadership seems to be doing better at responding to the needs of employees than before.

Cons

understaffed, overworked, demanding clients. not all employees are competent, making it necessary for the top performers to cover for their coworkers' mistakes.

historically, too much bureaucracy and red tape made it hard to get things done or make improvements to broken processes

Advice to ManagementAdvice

dont be stingy in finding talented employees, if you want to foster a culture of high performance and quality you need to be prepared to be more generous with your offers
