Study Technician (Former Employee) – Indianapolis, IN – June 21, 2018
Working as a study technician is a good stepping stone to move up within the company, or elsewhere. However, with the company constantly going under new management, things change often and job satisfaction can quickly decrease.
Administration (Former Employee) – Greenfield, IN – June 18, 2018
Poor management at many levels/highly overworked staff. High turnover of staff. No work to life balance. Culture between individuals is good, however this is not due to the company but with employees who may enjoy their work in spite of management and the company. The past several years has seen a huge amount of work placed on staff to the point of inability to address all work and in the best or correct manner. Due to this reason, there are many unreasonable expectations.
Poor management at many levels/highly overworked staff
I do not recommend working at Covance due to the lack of organization and due to the fact that the department I worked in was very unorganized.
Systems Secialist (Former Employee) – Greenfield, IN – June 11, 2018
Covance has senior management within each organization that can not make decisions. I heard arguments inside closed office doors that included yelling and that did not meet my expectations of the culture and environment that I need to feel safe and secure about my job. Covance has a very large turn over rate and is severely behind the times with technology.
On site cafe, Quiet atmosphere, free lab testing, promotes wellness
Extremely unorganized, management likes to make all the decisions themselves without involving team.
Data Entry Specialist (Current Employee) – Daytona Beach, FL – June 1, 2018

Sr. Manager, Global Supply Chain (Current Employee) – Greenfield, IN – May 31, 2018
A fast past environment with challenging projects, interesting colleagues, and rewarding out comes. The landscape of the contract research environment is quick paced. Drug and therapeutic research globally proves to be rewarding but requires a flexible work schedule with colleagues and clients around the world.
Very friendly, always on the phones and taking care of customers
Data Entry Specialist (Former Employee) – Greenfield, IN – May 30, 2018
My job title was to take care of patients with certain cancers and provide the correct treatment to each individual. Keeping a smile on all of my coworkers faces and being appropriate with the work policy
Eligibility Associate (Former Employee) – Greenfield, IN – May 28, 2018
My tenure with Covance was a short one, but everything about the experience was positive. Great, competitive pay. Training was fast paced but covered all the important aspects and the work itself wasn't overly demanding. Recommended.
Overall a good place to work. Good pay and you start with a considerale amount of vacation days
Desktop Publisher (Current Employee) – Indianapolis, IN – May 28, 2018
overall a good place to work. the department I worked in was deadline driven, so it could be very stressful. Over time was often Mandatory. I don't think this was true of all departments. They gave you a lot of vacation time.
Program Specialist (Current Employee) – Greenfield, IN – May 23, 2018
The job itself isn't stressful. A person must be detail oriented to work here. Flexibility is key to being successful as things change daily. I love it here. Management tries to be a friendly face and be personable which I appreciate.
Program Specialist (Current Employee) – San Diego, CA – May 2, 2018
A typical work day depends on the day, they monitor your every move. The attendance policy is not realistic. Honestly I think the experience is how you make it to be and could be depending on the program your in. Basically you need to be a happy robot.
I enjoy the people I work with, they help you get through the day.
