    Approves of CEO

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

    Pros

    I have never been in a place where people respects each other so much and their process is so logical and systematical that makes all of our jobs well organized and easy to follow. Everyone is also very well versed in their area of expertise that makes work so much fun because you learn something almost every day.

    Cons

    Communicating remotely was a little challenging at the beginning since there was no tone of voice on emails or messages. However, sometimes it does not feel that we are communicating from different locations since everyone is so timely responsible with their tasks.
