    I worked at Covance full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    Good benefits, some caring individuals, a good place to learn.

    Cons

    Hard work, stress, and an overused old system to keep labor costs down (8% must be labeled as sub par and at risk of loosing their job). The environment has gone from we are all in it to succeed to I must do whatever I can to look good, which may not benefit the team or company overall. Senior management are accountants with no vision or or real team building skills or ideas.

    Advice to Management

    Hold yourself to the same expectations that others are held to. It is time for a new vision and leader.

    I worked at Covance full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    there is ample parking and the office is modern.

    Cons

    Covance, Inc praises themselves on having no debt. They do not invest in technology or training. There are people who spending all day opening and stuffing envelops. There is a machine capable of doing that. When I was hired, my "trainer" was too busy to train me. Those were her words. Favoritism is rampant. Forget about having any type of consistency when it comes to policy.

    Advice to Management

    Try having management attend AMA classes so they can actual learn to manage the business and people properly vs letting their "pets" slide and holding others to a different standard.
