Culture of backstabbing
Covance is a great place to work until you realise all the people you believe you get on so well with will stab you in the back at any opportunity to make themselves look good. Also would not touch this place with a barge pole if you struggle with mental health.

Terrible management
Management are a nightmare, the team leader is a sociopath. Nice to your face but then turns out to be a terror. All they care about is money, and because of this you will rarely get a pay rise or progress. You are always wrong, you will never be able to give any ideas to the team but management will shut them down. 60 percent of the time, the so called 40 years experienced team leader will make a mistake. However, its always your fault. Don't take my word for it, talk to the study scientists that already work there. STAY AWAY, I'D RATHER LIVE ON THE STREETS

Not a nice place to be
Nice office, location off the main road.Was a nice place at the beginning, but the HR team, especially the recruiter “mis sold” the job.They were rude and ignored me when I tried to reach out.Please retrain your recruitment team! Kindness goes a long way!

Good, although not understanding in regards to mental health, good care of animals, pay should be higher for the technicians due to the extensive work.
