    Former Employee - Anonymous Employee in Madison, WI
    Former Employee - Anonymous Employee in Madison, WI

    I worked at Covance full-time (more than 5 years)

    Pros

    Great benefits, wonderful city, fun coworkers (for the most part), opportunity to explore a variety of jobs within drug development (sales, project management, lab work)

    Cons

    Management, employee recognition, senior leadership doesn't understand what is happening in each department

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Listen to your employees. Don't look at numbers/budgets and make decisions, actually talk to the department directors before deciding on actions. The best part of my job was the people who I worked with, not the people that I worked for.

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

    Pros

    Benefits, accessibility to connect with colleagues around the world

    Cons

    Global company means it is too large to focus on each employee. Career opportunities, especially for advancement is possible but often comes down to who you know that will lead to promotions.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Improve the focus on employees. Treat all employees fairly.
