    I have been working at Covance full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    Abundant PTO and working from home currently. I feel like I am being heard and understood when speaking to my supervisor. There are LOTS of groups/activities you can be a part of (some examples: Weight Watchers, Mentor program, Volunteering at the local food pantry) to meet new people outside of your position and team. There is ALWAYS work that can be done. I am never bored. I could go on and on..... really....

    Cons

    Most of the work is extremely repetitive, however, this can also be a pro though. Very strict on attendance, but it seems to be VERY hard to exceed or even get close to reaching the occurrence limit. It's hard to think of cons to be honest...

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

    Pros

    I have never been in a place where people respects each other so much and their process is so logical and systematical that makes all of our jobs well organized and easy to follow. Everyone is also very well versed in their area of expertise that makes work so much fun because you learn something almost every day.

    Cons

    Communicating remotely was a little challenging at the beginning since there was no tone of voice on emails or messages. However, sometimes it does not feel that we are communicating from different locations since everyone is so timely responsible with their tasks.

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

    Pros

    In the CMA (customer service) department there are often opportunities to work on other teams and earn overtime pay. The company as a whole generals feels as if it cares for its employees.

    Cons

    Individual experience can be entirely based on the team you are placed. The larger teams can be much more stressful and feel less personable.
