Long days, overworked, pay could be better, under appreciate by management
Associated Microbiologist (Former Employee) – Madison, WI – May 30, 2017
Working here at Covance, you really had no work to life balance. When I first worked here, I worked over 50 plus hours on my first week. After the first week, the average was about 55-65 hours a week. Only had a few coworkers that actually were willing to work, and management had no idea what these people were doing. Pretty much the people who did nothing got all the credit while people who did stuff got nothing. Took on large projects without question, but management never acknowledge it. Asked for a reference on my last day, and was told that they were only willing to say that I started on this day and ended on that day. Like really, I worked here for a year and they can't even say anything good at all!? I did my yearly review and brought up all the points I did to management and now towards the end, they weren't willing to acknowledge it. When I put in my two weeks, I was even given a management project that I had to do on my own time while performing my daily work, completed it, and turned it in... totally regret doing it now. I'm just glad I have some coworkers who knew what I did for the company. Was told that if I ever wanted to come back that they were willing to rehire me... my answer: No thank you.
If you work here for one year, you get a 3 dollar coupon.
Long days, overwork, management
