Finance Department (Former Employee) – Madison, WI – November 27, 2016
My experience with management is mixed. Many managers are very mean spirited and political. Their main goal is to advance themselves and look down on and take pleasure is mistreating their direct reports. The good managers are intentionally left out of department meetings and information is not shared with them. There are many cases where various managers within Finance dislike each other so much that they don't work together or even talk to each other. Extremely sad place to work. The dynamics are counterproductive to a healthy company and pleasant work environment. Many excellent employees have left as a result.
Left alone to do my work
Divided Management, extremely noisy, often bored. education and experience not utilized
Program Specialist (Current Employee) – San Diego, CA – October 3, 2016
Managing multiple calls during the day to help assist patients gain access to medical therapies can be quite rewarding. It can be difficult to socialize with fellow coworkers due to the goals of completed assignments per day. The hardest part of my job at this time is to accept certain inconsistencies, but manage them accordingly in the best interest of the company.
Program Specialist (Current Employee) – Greenfield, IN – October 3, 2016
While working with Covance as a temporary employee, I found the environment to be welcoming. All of the more experienced coworkers were available to lend a hand, and while the material was challenging without a background in medical insurance, it was highly rewarding to be able to help those in need. Management and team leaders were always readily available and friendly.
Operations Supervisor (Former Employee) – Greenfield, IN – October 24, 2016
Covance is an employer that offers multiple opportunities to grow in any business unit that may be appealing to a job seeker. It is very suited for new and young candidates who excel in an ever-changing ever-growing environment, and for those who wish to seek promotion opportunities in short time frames.
Helpful and responsive management and leaders with ability to move upwards into positions you desired
Summer Intern (Former Employee) – Madison, WI – August 19, 2016

Program Specialist (Former Employee) – Gaithersburg, MD 20878 – July 28, 2016
Problems with retention and morale aren’t just issues that confront your human resources officer. They make a measurable affect on your bottom line. The average price to replace an employee, from costs associated with exit interviews, administrative procedures, the interview process and training, is roughly 38 percent of the departed employee’s salary, according to Entrepreneur. Similarly, nationwide about $350 billion in productivity is lost through disengaged employees each year, according to Gallup and cited by Roberts Wesleyan College.
Clinical Data Coordinator II (Current Employee) – Conshohocken, PA – July 5, 2016
Many times I get to use my brain and think. UAT, edits, addressing some of the queries that are not correct. I have learned a lot in my positions I have held, and constantly want to learn and take on new challenges and tasks. My typical day is ansering emails, reviewing data, resolving queires, external vendor rec, and SAE rec (once a month)
Work from home
it is only contract for now, no benefits, paid vaction or hoildays
Program Representative (Former Employee) – San Diego, CA – June 21, 2016
The people are a great bunch, helpful, supervisors one is great , one is ike dead fish ( she needs to get some kind of personality, one is so fake. The rest i didnt have much contact. Any problems u have they call u after u get home, and like i said watch your back , they call you at like 8 at night to tell your let go , no balls to meet with you before you leave for the day, they dont want to let the others know VERY SNEAKY, they make a big deal about money spent on training, but instead of working with you , they just you go. Just a side note to the head of the department. ONE LESS PARKING SPACE YOU HAVE TO PAY FOR.
Program Specialist (Current Employee) – San Diego, CA – June 26, 2016
Don't socialize, don't talk too loud, and your productivity numbers better be optimal or you could lose your job. I've seen too many coworkers terminated for minuscule "offences." Call centers are not a good place to work, and this is definitely a call center environment. You're just a number here.
If you become permanent, on-sight gym. It's full-time and there are benefits.
Program Specialist Trainer (Former Employee) – Greenfield, IN – June 27, 2016
I loved my job overall. I loved working with patients and the training aspect of my job. It was when Supervisors are listening and/or contributing to rumor mills that the job became difficult and lost my job. I would suggest not making friends and keeping your head down. Just do your job and go home.
Assist patients (Former Employee) – Indianapolis, IN – November 2, 2016
Loved working for Covance and the patients they certain made my job even better due to the fact I to love help people. I also loved the hours that I work, only thing is Convance was really far from where I stayed.
Fast paced company and continuous improvement culture
Data Manager (Former Employee) – Indianapolis, IN – June 26, 2016
The best part of working for Covance was that one never knew exactly what they would be performing at any given time of the day. The systems were complex and multiple platforms of varying degrees of difficulty. The culture was one of continuous growth and improvement.
