I have been working at Covance full-time for more than a year

Pros

Lots of opportunities to learn new skills, great compensation and benefits. Company values your education and has tuition reimbursement. You start off with 21 or more days of paid vacation time.

Cons

Can have long hours and high stress depending on position and department. Toxicology is especially busy right now and experiencing high turnover.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Spend more time talking to the people actually conducting the research - inlife technicians in the vivarium. We make your business possible.

    Lots of learning opportunities, great potential. Sadly, the behavior of middle management kills job satisfaction.

    I worked at Covance full-time for 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 ManagementAdvice

    Hold yourself to the same expectations that others are held to. It is time for a new vision and leader.
