    I have been working at Covance full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    The people I work with are great, hard working, and provide a real team oriented environment. The type of work is personally satisfying, ultimately helping people. There is a lot of flexibility in the job for certain positions. There are a lot of opportunities for career advancement and changes in positions within the company

    Cons

    Covance has had some hard times, and we lost some good people. When the company is really busy, people are overworked. The benefits are really good despite the fact that they have been reduced over the past couple of years. The benefits are still better than most companies.

    Advice to Management

    Hire sufficient staff so that when we are busy people don't get burned out

    Neutral Outlook
    Disapproves of CEO

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

    Pros

    Great benefits, wonderful city, fun coworkers (for the most part), opportunity to explore a variety of jobs within drug development (sales, project management, lab work)

    Cons

    Management, employee recognition, senior leadership doesn't understand what is happening in each department

    Advice to Management

    Listen to your employees. Don't look at numbers/budgets and make decisions, actually talk to the department directors before deciding on actions. The best part of my job was the people who I worked with, not the people that I worked for.
