Data Entry (Former Employee) – Gaithersburg, MD – February 7, 2017
Considering the high-pressured situation my group of co-workers and I walked into, everybody treated one another with respect. We were able to accomplish our goal of eliminating the backlog of orders while enjoying each others' company during breaks. I would work there again if requested.

Wonderful company dedicated to improving the lives of others.
Executive Assistant and Marketing Coordinator (Former Employee) – Princeton, NJ – December 7, 2016
Covance is a company dedicated to improving the lives of others through the work they do assisting Pharma companies with their clinical trials and drug development work.
The management team was professional, hard working, and engaging. Covance was a "family" oriented company having many many employees with long term tenure. The employees were very dedicated to their jobs and the mission of the company.
Covance was a great place to work.
Competitive salary, competitive benefits, the employees, and their mission
Program Specialist (Former Employee) – Gaithersburg, MD – May 25, 2016
From the time I was hired at Covance until I left to move back to Philadelphia, there was no place I would've rather worked. The work was rewarding to a degree to which I had never felt before. When a patient calls to tell you that the assistance program you enrolled them in saved their life, or the insurance verification you did provided a patient with the information for coverage on a much needed medical procedure, that's a much greater feeling than simply "a job well done". Many of people I was lucky enough to work along side have become life long friends, and I know they company is in good hands as long as they're there.
Family environment of the office
The apathy of some insurance companies concerning their policy holders
Research Associate (Former Employee) – Madison, WI – February 13, 2016
The work environment was very hostile and competitive. There was little to no team work, it was about concentrating on focusing on yourself. Which I have not difficulties working individually or as a team player. The company only measured mistakes, which in turn caused individuals to turn against each other creating hostile and competitive work environment. Especially when management played favoritism. What I learned was its all about who you know within that company, not what you know or how long you have served. Most enjoyable part about the job, was working with the animals. Having the experience to train primates, perform surgeries on animals, caring or carrying out treatment for the animals.
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.
