I have been working at Covance full-time (more than 3 years)

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 ManagementAdvice

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.

Positive Outlook
No opinion of CEO
