Client Services Manager I (Current Employee) – Princeton, NJ – February 9, 2018
I was personally asked to apply for a better paying, more challenging position after only nine months of working with the company. I love my current position and the people with whom I work. While it can definitely be stressful at times, it is rewarding work.
work from home options for certain roles, superior management
Great environment for CRAs to get site monitoring experience
Senior Clinical Research Associate (Current Employee) – Princeton, NJ – January 26, 2018
Great environment for CRAs to get site monitoring experience. You can do it all at Covance--Pre Study, Routine Monitoring, Site Initiation, Close-out. Great place to advance to Lead CRA or Project Manager.
Only 40 hours of un-used PTO can roll over into the following year.
Clinical Research Technician (Former Employee) – Madison, WI – December 18, 2017
Covance was just an OK place to work. Job growth is definitely an option if you're willing to withstand the fast-paced culture, but compensation doesn't increase that much when you are promoted. Benefits are good, but they are changing with the merger. Coworkers are good, but there's tremendous turnover in many departments, so you might only work with the people you meet for about a year. Overall, it's an OK place to gain some experience, but there are better places to build a career later on.
Good PTO, opportunity for overtime
Not great pay, unpredictable hours, micromanagement
Executive Director of Business Process & Solutions (Former Employee) – Princeton, NJ – December 11, 2017
Company shift due to merger has caused confusion and dismay with employee group, leadership is absent and direction hazy. Company seems lost in their effort to gain market share and keep the drive to excellence alive and part of the company culture.
This was a good place to work, but with recent executive leadership changes, the environment changed from a family feel to very corporate/bottom line only. With the loss of client contracts and not obtaining new contracts, Covance has become unstable. Several reductions in force have taken place causing a very stressful atmosphere with current staff. Additional changes to the benefits packages have been very detrimental to the employee.
toxicology lab technician (Former Employee) – Fairfax, VA – June 2, 2017
the job requires extensive physical which is not comparable to the low pay. The environment is hazardous and dangerous because dealing with mice and rats which were injected with medication and they bite the handlers.
Great place to learn and grow into a job with plenty of room for advancement. Hours are very long and travel is driven by client demand - not great for a young family if you want to spend any time with your kids. Always new projects so never boring. Overall a good bunch of people to work with.
Senior Clinical Research Associate (Former Employee) – Home Based – May 24, 2017
Salary is competitive within the industry. Position required 8 site visits per month, which is somewhat intensive, given most visits required CRA to be on-site for an entire day. Given travel would often occur the day before and the day after the visit, 8 days on- site per month provided to be a difficult metric to meet.
