Suggestions for improvement

  • To hire people only if they need them, to us it seemed like most of were hired to be analyzed and fired instead of given the opportunity to grow. Luckily, I was kept on as long as I wanted however most people I knew got let go for little to no reason.

Suggestions for improvement

  • More training and time to implement new process and procedures would be given.

What I like about the company

Like any company, there are ups and downs, but with Covance there is ample opportunity for career and personal growth while earning above average salary. The benefits are good and on par with industry standards.

What I dislike about the company

Across platform integrations are not always smooth in transition. More time to review all aspects of what needs to be integrated and what is needed to ensure a smooth transition would aid in the end result.

Suggestions for improvement

  • Should work to make sure workload is balanced amount the dept. only a select few are the work horses and work long hours.

What I like about the company

Good pay, always learning new stuff

What I dislike about the company

It seems to be hard to promote within the dept so many times there is a lot of moving around of dept in order to progress. They should work on promoting within be dept rather than outside of it

Suggestions for improvement

  • Equal opportunities for advancement! Make promises to employees and keep them! Offer more promotions since I’ve only had one in almost six years!

What I like about the company

I have worked closely with some really nice and helpful men and women! These are the people that should be advancing within the company!

What I dislike about the company

This is not Eli Lilly anymore, and it never will be again! I wish the people on this site would get that through their heads. They can’t let go of the past and get use to working for another company! Plus treating women with the same respect and welcoming business practices would help the company!
