    Pros

    Ferring has some good stable products in women's health, but has had challenges in the urology space. Ferring in Australia is small company, with NO dedicated HR function. The employee benefits package and general HR management, needs work.

    Cons

    Small company playing in very competitive and innovative market segments - may struggle to stay relevant in some sectors.

    Negative Outlook
    Disapproves of CEO

    I worked at Ferring Pharmaceuticals full-time

    Pros

    Salary is on par with other mid to large size pharmaceutical companies.

    Cons

    No loyalty to employee, although Ferring claims “People come first at Ferring” is its Philosophy. The senior management in Europe consistently change the directions. The product platform is old, and the drug development in the R&D center in Europe is very slow, compared with other pharmaceutical companies. Lots of money was wasted at R&D without moving new product forward. The US employees were laid off while contributing 1/3 of the global revenue and majority of the profit.
