Burnout

Program Associate (Current Employee)
Gaithersburg, MD

I have been working at Covance

ProsThe location is nice. Nice benifits. A fair amount of paid time off is given. The company is very diverse.

ConsThe management is very secretive. Voluntary turnover is high. Working on a bi-coastal project can be difficult. The attendance policy is very very strict. Senior operations staff can be difficult to deal with, substandard.

Advice to Senior ManagementYour attempts to improve morale have been poor. Improving morale has been an objective of the business unit for the four years I've worked here. Morale has not improved.

No, I would not recommend this company to a friend
