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

    Pros

    Supervisors attempt to make it a fun work environment.

    Cons

    No transparency. When a change in process occurs they give less than one day notice. Severe favoritism. Lack of empathy. No help on the floor. Pushed us through different parts of the job with little to no training, expect us to be perfect.

    Advice to Management

    Do better, stop lying, and a lot time for training.

    Negative Outlook
    No Opinion of CEO

    I worked at Covance full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    Flexible schedule Ability to work from home Pay can be decent (depends on role/business segment)

    Cons

    Flex schedule & work from home means you are ALWAYS expected to be available - this includes holidays, weekends, & your planned vacation time. This is a multi-national company so someone is always working & will want to know why you are not. This is your standard large company - M&A activities are not well planned, entire departments/business functions being outsource to India (with decreased quality). Come for the experience, but don't make this your "work home". Build your resume and move on ASAP.

    Advice to Management
