Senior Clinical Data Coordinator (Former Employee) – Princeton, NJ – November 18, 2018
Above average company to work with new management (LabCorp) buyout. I did enjoy working at Covance but my last few years were unimpressive. Requested to improve skills with training and mentors for higher responsibility and positions but no available projects or training was given.
Sr. LIMS Developer for Global Services (Former Employee) – Telecommute position – November 16, 2018
For technical development, Covance will allow remote. I found the place to be a little cut throat and pointing fingers. The developoment work I was promised never happened. I wanted to leave after 2 months but stayed for 6.

Sr. Team Manager, Global Project Management (Former Employee) – Indianapolis, IN – October 24, 2018
If you want to work like a slave for base compensation, have no time for family, and have your results rideculed, Covance is for you! This is the worst place I've ever worked and the management is truly horrible. Seriously, don't work here.
Clinical Research Nurse, Screening Department (Former Employee) – Madison, WI 53704 – October 19, 2018
I worked with a group of people in the screening department. The entire department seemed to be depressed. They did not treat with respect the volunteers coming in to be screened for different pharmaceutical research studies. Also there was a lot of people who had been there a long time and had their favorites so the area continued to be a gloomy place to go to work each day.
Program Specialist (Current Employee) – Los Angeles, CA – October 18, 2018
This place is a nightmare to work for. They have really small pick nick tables to work from for all employees. Management is at its worst no real team work at all they do not care about their employees the attendance policy is
Project Coordinator (Former Employee) – Madison, WI – October 16, 2018
Enjoyed working for this company as an intern and then my first job after college. It offered great pay and benefits to someone just starting in the workforce. I enjoyed my job and was able to move within the company to grow amd learn new and different roles within the company.
I enjoyed working at Covance until mid-2006 when a new VP came on board. This person had no interest in working with anyone that had been a part of the company for a long period of time and opted to lay me off in early 2008.
Program Associate (Former Employee) – San Diego, CA – October 12, 2018
All I have to say is management is horrible in the San Diego site. There and Managers and Supervisors that are not approachable, play favorites, and don't know how to do their job. The promotion process needs to be changed. It's very obvious that a lot of the promotions are based on favoritism and politics. Promotions should be based on your actual performance and a Supervisor should not be able to tell you 'yes' or 'no' to proceeding with an interview. If you are not on a written warning, you should be able to interview. These interviews should be completed by a 3rd party recruiting company who determines the best candidate. From my experience, the turnover rate is tremendous and a lot of people leave due to the reasons explained above. Something has to change Covance!
CLINICAL OPERATIONS SUPERVISOR II (Current Employee) – Dallas, TX – October 6, 2018
There are many challenges abound within the Covance work environment. Mainly the staffing, training, & retention of staff members which has a direct effect on the management & performance of the clinical trials. In past few months there has been a positive shift on the evaluation & implementation of those particular areas, which is a positive harbinger for the near future.
