Featured Review

Current Employee - Senior Project Leader

I have been working at Parexel full-time for more than 5 years

Pros

One of the good companies to work with in India

Cons

Not that i have identified

Current Employee - Program Specialist

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

Pros

Abundant PTO and working from home currently. I feel like I am being heard and understood when speaking to my supervisor. There are LOTS of groups/activities you can be a part of (some examples:... Weight Watchers, Mentor program, Volunteering at the local food pantry) to meet new people outside of your position and team. There is ALWAYS work that can be done. I am never bored. I could go on and on..... really....

Cons

Most of the work is extremely repetitive, however, this can also be a pro though. Very strict on attendance, but it seems to be VERY hard to exceed or even get close to reaching the occurrence limit.... It's hard to think of cons to be honest...

Advice to Management

You're doing an amazing job. This is by far my most favorite place i have ever worked. Thank you for creating a wonderful work environment!
