    Advice to Management

    I can only speak to Covance-Market Access division, not Covance as a whole. You will work hard for very little compensation in pay or recognition in the form of advancement. If you are not in the 'circle", you will not last long enough to reap the fruits of your labor. Better to get what you can out of Covance and seek employment else where. From everyone I know that has left, they have used it as a stepping stone.
