    I have been working at Covance full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    Good benefits, clean, air conditioned.

    Cons

    Good workers are left go for not conforming to a managers low moral standards. Human Resources was made aware of issues involving this manager. We cannot trust the managers anymore, very disappointing. These decisions are detrimental to all those who remain employed, would not suggest my friends to work here anymore. Lie, yes, they do. What happened to "The Covance Way" and "Respect for the Individual"?

    Advice to Management

    None. Would not help.

    I have been working at Covance full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    There are none, I needed a job

    Cons

    Mandatory over time for the past year , no work life balance, understaffed, Managers hiring friends that are injured ( not disabled there is a difference ). Uneducated middle management that cannot think outside the box. Very little to no employee engagement, a HR department that only look out for friends, no accountability for bad decisions, a false belief that allot of overtime is equivalent to job security. If you are thinking of working here be prepared be under paid and treated with no respect.

    There are no minorities at my sites, there are always layoffs and there is always a constant fear in the atmosphere, employee turn around is lightening fast, always new faces.

    Advice to Management

    Try hiring a few educated workers, stop hiring friends. Honesty is lacking.
