    I worked at Covance full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Good company to work for overall, great reputation in the field. Managers worked hard to train and help advance staff. Good corporate culture and comfortable working environment. I enjoyed collaborating and suggesting work flow improvements to my manager and feeling confident these were considered.

    Cons

    Nothing specific to mention here.

    Advice to Management

    Continue to care about your clients and support your team members, it makes a big difference.

    Doesn't Recommend
    Negative Outlook
    No opinion of CEO

    I worked at Covance full-time

    Pros

    Pay and PTO really great (can't speak to insurance). Initially had many great opportunities, and most coworkers (excluding PMs) are great to work with. My first few years were great, but when I was ready and qualified to be promoted, no matter what I did it wasn't enough.

    Cons

    Company loyalty and regular great feedback and performance reviews were meaningless. Interviewed for 5 management jobs without success. Feedback was never that I was unqualified, but arbitrary reasons. Incredibly disappointed in my career progress as this was once an amazing company to work for.
    Project Managers lack any idea of monitoring, are subservient to the Sponsors only, and will work you like a dog with little to no appreciation.

    Advice to Management

    Take care of your top level employees who have proven themselves over the years!!!
