I worked at Covance full-time (More than 3 years)

Pros

Great for entry level positions. Good overtime pay. Vibrant city location. School reimbursement along with other benefits.

Cons

Once you've learned the skills, the job can be boring and monotonous. This can leave you feeling boxed in and limited. As with other companies, politics and who you know matters. Work : Life ratio sucks and can be unpredictable.

Advice to Management

Increase cohesiveness of how technicians are treated across teams.

    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.
