Approves of CEO

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

Pros

If management agrees something is going to happen and it gets funding, it gets done! The culture is open, not very hierarchical. Covance is honest with themselves about where they are good and where they need to do better. Decision making is swift and unequivocal. Deadwood employees have a very short half-life.

Cons

Salary is lower than big pharma because CRO industry margins are lower. Business is more sharply cyclical than pharma so you need to stay alert to sudden changes.

Advice to Management

Keep up your improvements in your Informatics capabillities.
