I have been working at Covance full-time for more than 5 years

Pros

Great benefits, good location, flexibility and opportunities for advancement

Cons

Too much workload, focus on process over people. Expectations are too high and burnout levels are increasing.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Remember that you are working with people who have lives and not someone always willing to run themselves to the ground.

    I have been working at Covance full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    Friendly staff. Everyone gets along very well. There is opportunity to train and learn in different areas of the business besides your own department. The Director is very nice and down to earth.

    Cons

    There is lots of downtime which sometimes is great when you need a breather but not so great when you want to keep busy. Technology used in some areas of the workplace is ancient and sometimes can be a long and painful process to get updated.

    I worked at Covance as a contractor for more than a year

    Pros

    Looks good on a resume

    Cons

    They underpay and cut corners and the management at the chantilly location is inexperienced in both managing and science. Also this place really promotes nepotism and certain things they do are plain illegal and racist - seriously take this place as a last resort.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Fire all your current middle management and hire real scientists
