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

Pros

The benefits and PTO were the biggest asset of working for this company. The health insurance was very generous.

Cons

The Stock holders were the decision makers so if the company was not moving in the right direction, the stock holders decide the fate of the business.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Be honest with the employees and if there is trouble ahead, ensure that they are well aware so they can make the appropriate arrangements.

    Pros

    good pay and benefits
    possibility to learn a lot by working on several projects and clients

    Cons

    Line managers very incompetent, lacking of communication skills and more worried about quantity of work rather than quality of your job. They often verbally threaten the employees ("if you won't work overtime you will never get promoted") and when they are required to give an advice about an issue, they never provide a response ("fix it up as you can, and work overtime" is their favourite answer). The first day you join the company you start directly to work on the projects, without performing the necessary trainings, because you have to produce hours client billable as much as you can.
    And finally, the career growth is very slow. The company prefers hire new resources better than give career opportunities to whom already work in it.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Please do not mistreat your employees, we are people not things.And please pay more attention to the quality of the work produced
