    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...

    No Opinion of CEO

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

    Pros

    1. No 1 CRO in the world 2. Lot of live studies

    Cons

    1. Below average salary. If you don't know about the current market standard compensation or the other benefits like "Joining Bonus" and all. If you don't know and didn't asked for it then you will end up getting only the below average salary. Nothing else. 2. No market correction on CTC by their own 3. No one is interested to listen if you are getting below average salary and you are asking for market correction. 4. Leave cash encashment is part of the CTC
