Covance - too much talk and not enough substance

Study Director (Current Employee)
Harrogate, England

I have been working at Covance

ProsCan be a fairly dynamic work place. Opportunities do exist to move upwardly within the organisation if you are willing to tow the company line.

ConsPoor systems, unwillingness to change, static thinking, lack of togetherness. Attracts some good staff but doesnt retain them. Most managers appear to be people who have stayed at the company for years and have created there own little kingdoms. This tends to result in a lack of cooperation and an insular approach to the other departments. More emphasis needs to be put on performing quality work and producing a quality product. This may impact on throughput and cost but the client retention is likely to improve.

Advice to Senior ManagementTry to have a thorough update of in house reporting systems and listen to staff about the problems with these systems. 6 sigma is too slow to remedy many of the immediate faults.
