    Pros

    This company could service a NCE from discovery through to product launch.

    Cons

    The company can't figure out how to make this integration of all the dept's into "the one company that can service a NCE from discovery through to product launch". Departments are silo's of talent.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Find the leaders in the company who do know how to interprate the drug development life cycle and plan accordingly.

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

    Pros

    I was really worried about starting at Covance because it is such a big company with so many employees. It looks a lot like a factory. However, in my first couple of months I have learned that the people are very friendly and easy to get along with. There really is no drama like I have had in past jobs. I like it a lot so far and can't imagine working for a better company. Also, it pays about $4 an hour more than most hospitals in the area with plenty of opportunities for advancement in you work hard.

    Cons

    So far I have seen no cons.
