    I worked at Ferring Pharmaceuticals full-time for more than 5 years

    Pros

    Patient focused company. Training is top notch. Bonuses are good too when you hit them. Management is willing to help and assist you grow. Reproductive Health is the Back Bone of Company and this group rocks.

    Cons

    At times it seemed difficult to move up due to DM's being there for a while other times the DM's were brought in from outside the company cutting off those potentially upward moving Reps. In the Past the Bonuses were erratic and based on goals that were really insane to reach.

    Pros

    Mostly a good working environment but that depends on the department you are in. Great relationships with great people. Good opportunities for upward mobility. Good President.

    Cons

    Going through some growing pains in the transition from a smaller to medium sized pharma company. There is a lot more red tape now.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    You need to start compensating people inline with what other pharma companies in NJ are paying. This is the only way to attract and retain talent.
