Featured Review

Current Employee - Senior Scientific Recruiter

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

Pros

Fantastic work culture, innovate work, great people to work with! Covance is very appreciative of associates- regardless of their role. Challenging work, opportunities for advancement, connection... to work that improves lives.

Cons

Every company and industry has it challenges; the CRO industry is very competitive. Covance has to anticipate the need before it’s identified that means associates have to be ready to evolve... constantly. If you are looking for a company or position that is more laid back, or has little change then it’s not a good match for you.

Advice to Management

Keep up the great work! I appreciate the communication on the direction and focus of the organization. My direct manager is fantastic; I get to work with outstanding peers and truly great... experience with everyone I encounter.
