I think it starts from the top and trickles down. Covance hires management (Supervisors) from outside with who know nothing and people in Covance get promoted that aren't ready and shouldn't be in their position. Not all, but most. That and they need management that is people friendly and approachable.There are a lot of favorites and politics in all sites. The promotion process needs to be changed. There needs to be a 3rd party that conducts these interviews and makes the final decision on promotions.

If I were in charge, I would listen to my employees. Obtaining new talent is great, but they need to listen to the employees who have the knowledge and experience, so those employees will want to stick around and teach/train new employees to one day take their place.
