Great Place to Work

Study Technician II (Current Employee)
Madison, WI (US)

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

ProsLots of opportunities to learn new skills, great compensation and benefits. Company values your education and has tuition reimbursement. You start off with 21 or more days of paid vacation time.

ConsCan have long hours and high stress depending on position and department. Toxicology is especially busy right now and experiencing high turnover.

Advice to Senior ManagementSpend more time talking to the people actually conducting the research - inlife technicians in the vivarium. We make your business possible.

Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend
