Featured Review

Current Employee - Executive Director

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

Pros

So many scientific experts across the enterprise to support drug development. A global presence that fosters collaboration and global thinking in drug development. Management listens to employees and... takes actions. I feel like I have a voice and that it is heard. Career growth is supported and I see options and continued growth.

Cons

Benefits when acquired by Labcorp were challenging, but it has been recognized and is being worked on.

Advice to Management

Maintain transparency. What I appreciate from Covance/Labcorp management is the transparency to employees regarding our goals and how we've achieved them. I encourage management to continue.

Current Employee - Project Manager

I have been working at INC Research full-time for more than 10 years

Pros

I have had incredible managers who have mentored and supported me.

Cons

The company is very large, which makes it difficult to personally know others in your department. But, the company is divided by therapeutic area, which makes it seem that we are working for a... smaller company.
