    I have been working at Covance full-time

    Pros

    Covance offers the opportunity to work from home or part-time for those that need it which is good for those with families. The Maidenhead office is brand new and quite bright so at least you can see the sun outside even if your skin will never feel it.

    Cons

    The office is very far away from the town center, the bus into town takes 15 minutes each way and with a 45 minute lunch break that leaves 15 minutes to rush around town, eat and get back to the bus. The canteen food is supposedly subsidised but it makes you wonder what the original cost was when a bag of quavers can set you back 90p and a main meal is normally £5+. The company do not like to pay for anything other than salaries, there is a 'sports and social club' that charges monthly but the money mainly goes towards events organised and attended by one particular group without notification to anyone else. Christmas parties will set you back £30+ and Christmas lunch (in the canteen) will set you back nearly £10.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Show more appreciation to your long-term employees. Moral and productivity are strongly related, most employees feel very uninspired at the moment. Appreciation could be shown by giving opportunities to attend conferences or train in new skills. The pharmaceutical industry in general has a reputation for treating it's employees well but Covance is the odd one out in this case.

    Also more care should be taken when hiring new employees, this might help reduce the extraordinary employee turnover rate.
