  3. "Same stuff different company"

    3.0
    Current Employee - Clinical Operations Lead in Princeton, NJ

    I have been working at Covance full-time

    Pros

    Large company is on the forefront of new technologies, stable work environment. Benefits are good, lots of processes in place. If you work on a cookie cutter study, it would be awesome.

    Cons

    Like all the giants, it’s impossible to get much of anything changed. Jobs are becoming more and more segmented into “specialist”’positions instead of having a broad overview of skills. Career advancement is frustratingly slow.

    Former Employee - Study Technician I in Madison, WI
    Doesn't Recommend
    Neutral Outlook
    No Opinion of CEO

    I worked at Covance full-time for less than a year

    Pros

    -- Good benefits and PTO -- Opportunity to advance to other positions, if viewed favorably

    Cons

    -- Harassment and shaming by coworkers, instead of people helping one another to improve -- Too much mandatory overtime, and staff unwilling to trade overtime shifts with one another -- Out of touch management -- Emphasis placed on speed. Many techs had repetitive motion injuries due to being forced to perform the same tasks hundreds of times at high speeds with few breaks. -- Greater emphasis on punishing people for mistakes than rewarding good work. Standards for error-free bonuses were set too high for most people to achieve.
