Pros

Good salary/benefits package. Less traveling than other Companies.

Cons

No useful trainings are delivered to employees, they are not prepared for a career development (and, in fact, it very rare that the CRAs have the chance to become project managers or line managers, even after many years in the Company!).

Advice to Management

Train promising employees and have them grow internally, rather that hiring PMs and LMs from outside, who, in most cases, have not the required experience anyway.

    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.

  2. Should be happy I got a job straight out of undergraduate school.
