    Pros

    Wide variety of assays. Fast paced environment. Training opportunity.

    Cons

    Poor management of discipline has lead to laziness and lack of interest in work. Comfortably below average pay for the job with experience. Lack of reward for good work. No job appreciation. The same members of staff are relied on because others are not trusted to do the work due to lack of proper training or incompetency and get away with doing very little.

    Disapproves of CEO

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

    Pros

    Can allow flexible working. Not much else.

    Cons

    Disappointing behavior during the COVID crisis, where salaries have been frozen and 401k contributions have been stopped. I wonder if the CEO and senior management will take a hit to their multi-million dollar salaries? I highly doubt it. As usual, the day to day staff who actually do the work, who take time away from their families and lives to work overtime during the COVID crisis are being hit the hardest, while the senior level staff still get to enjoy over-inflated salaries and bonuses at our expense.
