Featured Review

Former Employee - Senior Director

I worked at Gilead Sciences full-time for less than a year

Pros

Ability to move laterally and gain broad experience

Cons

To be successful, should be tolerant of change as company expands into new areas of research, new modalities, new markets

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.
