    I have been working at Covance full-time

    Pros

    Ability to work from home

    Cons

    Managers don't care about you, lousy performance review (based on gossips and no real concrete assessments) or not being done at all. With the latest "restructure" many people lost their jobs, and they kept some really bad people who basically don't do any work. It goes without saying there are lots of politics at play. Very poor treatment of its employees with social functions, you have to pay for most of these, Xmas parties involve standing at a pub and served with finger food of supermarket quality. Managers' offices are like 6 times of other employees, this also means reduced public shared spaces like lunch rooms, meeting rooms.

    Incompetent managers Gossip is allowed to go on, I was accused by a colleague of not doing any work when I could prove I did twice the amount of work as my colleagues (and I proved it).

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

    Pros

    I'm now in my 4th month of employment at Covance and have found the work thoroughly rewarding and enjoyable. The opportunities and training offered to progress is another positive to working here at Covance.

    Cons

    Working full time in LAT is hard work and most likely not sustainable for those who may suffer from fatigue due to having to work 12 days in a row every 3 weeks

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

    Pros

    I have never been in a place where people respects each other so much and their process is so logical and systematical that makes all of our jobs well organized and easy to follow. Everyone is also very well versed in their area of expertise that makes work so much fun because you learn something almost every day.

    Cons

    Communicating remotely was a little challenging at the beginning since there was no tone of voice on emails or messages. However, sometimes it does not feel that we are communicating from different locations since everyone is so timely responsible with their tasks.
