I have been working at Covance full-time for more than 3 years

Pros

Good salary/benefits package. Less traveling than other Companies.

Cons

No useful trainings are delivered to employees, they are not prepared for a career development (and, in fact, it very rare that the CRAs have the chance to become project managers or line managers, even after many years in the Company!).

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Train promising employees and have them grow internally, rather that hiring PMs and LMs from outside, who, in most cases, have not the required experience anyway.

Positive Outlook
No opinion of CEO

    Former Employee - Program Specialist Reimbursement in San Diego, CA (US)

    I worked at Covance as a contractor for more than 3 years

    Pros

    Flexible hours. Training provided in reimbursement methodologies, basic coding, customer service.

    Cons

    micro-managing, little room for advancement, management is detached. There are some fun people, but they aren't in management. The company won't do much to make you proud of the work you do or acknowledge successes. The company doesn't do holiday parties, happy hours, or any sort of non work related events. The environment is very productivity focused. They should treat their employees better.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Try to be more personable with employees. Make time for "team building" and fun.
