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

Pros

Colleagues (non-management), salary, work-life balance

Discriminatory environment; females have little, if any, chance of promotion -- despite accomplishments.

Advice to Management

Have you ever heard of a Golden Parachute? Try it.

    I have been working at Covance full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    A good percentage of the staff here are goog people but if you are a political science major you will fit in well with the all the others and all the drama and rhetoric

    Cons

    i just received an email along with nearly 1000 others here that the compensation at my level was being "redesigned". That regardless of the contents of the offer letter i signed not that long ago, i am getting a 15% haircut in my overall compensation. That this will make the company more competitive I chose to come here not that long ago. The description i was given of the company, department and job do not match reality. I can deal with that. What I cannot accept is not being able to trust my employer. Do not come here!
