"There is very little support from the supervisors and management team. I have never been so micro managed in all my years. Morale is very low among employees. The best part of the day was getting to go home."

"My work at Covance was the most stressful position in my entire career. The work load was not for a single person but was for three people having to work overtime every day and having no time to have a break for lunch. As a new employee, I found the senior members unsupportive and very secretive about what they do. It was the most unpleasant experience I ever had in my 20+ years of being in the work force."

"Far too much nepotism and favoritism."

What do you like about working at Covance?

"Compensation is acceptable but is not spectacular. Some work from home options acceptable, but it depends on your manager (inconsistency within the organization)."

Do you have any tips for others interviewing with this company?

"They love the behavioral questions, but most folks doing the interview lack the skill to do it properly or perhaps the company as a whole isn't good about coordinating the questions so you are not asked the same question by every seperate interviewer."

What don't you like about working at Covance?

"Nepotism is rampant in this company in the Indianapolis Location. For a company of this age, the culture is very immature. Promotions is based on who you know that likes you. Promotions are mosting applied to incoming ElI Lilly workers (thus location known as Lilly West). Raises are a thing of the past. Review happens end of year first of the new year, but applied in July. Bonus are skimpy (but the company is doing well). Managment is very top heavy."

What suggestions do you have for management?

"HR Department needs a lot of work. Recruiters lack followup. Hiring Managers lack ability to hire timely and also lack followup skllls. Company likes to talk about the ficticous 'compelling offer' and 'pillars of service', but in truth it's simply not believable."

"The people I worked with and the friendships that came out of all of it."

Do you have any tips for others interviewing with this company?

"Don't ever talk negatively about this company. They have eyes and ears everywhere."

"Management policies were a bit unsettling. If your entire team did amazing, someone still had to be declared the loser and receive no bonus because of what they referred to as the curve"

What suggestions do you have for management?

"Give bonuses based on how you do, don't stiff people who earned it."
