Client Manager I (Current Employee) – Denver, PA – August 10, 2015
I have learned a lot at Covance and my immediate management and co-workers are wonderful. I really enjoy the team relationship and the immense access to talent. Unfortunately, in an ever changing market the business unit I belong to is a bit stuck in the past. The refusal to change and to improve processes is not an easy culture to overhaul.
Clinical Data Acquisition Associate II (Former Employee) – Princeton, NJ – June 25, 2015
management was friendly and understanding. Management was willing to work with each employee based on their knowledge skills and needs. there was little room for advancement if you did not have a college Bachelors or masters degree. Experience was not valued.
Overall a good company to work for; however, I felt the position was different than originally explained.
Manager, Document Review and Maintenance (Former Employee) – Princeton, NJ – June 25, 2014
Covance provided good benefits and a fairly flexible schedule (hours, work from home availability); however, I felt that my role included too much financial accountability that was not originally explained. I had to account for financial information that was performed in start-up even though my role was in maintenance and I felt that this was never fully explained up-front. Otherwise, I was comfortable with my role and I gained valuable experience being in the CRO role and seeing things from that point of view.
Project Coordinator (Current Employee) – Madison, WI – October 31, 2013
Communication and management are unorganized and make decisions for and without input or notification to all departments involved. Work long hours and not recognized for hard work and efforts, just expected to do more and more.
There are a lot of changes happening at Covance. My co-workers are great. I've learned so much at Covance. I've never worked in HR until I came to work at Covance. The most enjoyable part of my job is learning something new. They really promote change in your job.
Program Specialist (Former Employee) – Gaithersburg, MD – February 28, 2013

Administrative Assistant II (Former Employee) – Emeryville, CA – September 7, 2012
At Covance, I gained lots of knowledge and training. Some of my daily tasks included data entry, answering phones, replying to emails, daily contact with multiple people and customers, ordering supplies, submitting bills for payment, keeping track of sales, creating excel spreadsheets for customer service surveys etc. I worked with a diverse group of individuals, continually learning from one another and working towards a common goal. The hardest part of the job would be continually taking on various new responsibilities but this was achieved through time management and strong organizational skills. The most enjoyable part of the job would be the relaxed office environment
great co-workers, good benefits, opportunities for bonuses & raises
