I have been working at Covance full-time (More than 3 years)

Pros

Good coworkers and PTO and benefits.

Cons

Salary is less than other companies. Career development is very slow and you need to careful not to get pigeonholed in a position/project.

Advice to Management

Give some positive feedback to employees along with the negative. Focusing on only improvement areas and ignoring all accomplishments demotivates the employee. Try to keep employees engaged and feeling like a key part of the team instead of dinging them for petty things and never acknowledging their project accomplishments.

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

    Pros

    The company provides a pleasant work environment, flexible schedule, and overall nice people to work with. Good pay and benefits as well.

    Cons

    Too much outsourcing - I had worked there for 5 years and every year they were outsourcing a new department. Otherwise, it is very bureaucratic, hard to get things done without approvals from 10 different people.

    Advice to Management

    Stop outsourcing! It is not the answer. A lot of the functions that have been outsourced have been failures. Sometimes it is most valuable to keep things in house.
