    Management. HR treats agains her, hired her a security guard, company has police on premises frequently. Not a safe environment. Poor management.

    "Independent Contractor"

    Star Star Star Star Star
    Former Employee - Anonymous Employee
    Former Employee - Anonymous Employee

    Pros

    Work - life balance is respected. Most everyone I worked with was out the door by 5.

    Cons

    The company is looking to join the big pharma ranks in the U.S. but has significant growing pains because it lacks much of the underlying infrastructure.
    Decision making seems to be a merry-go-round, very siloed and lacking in cross functional collaboration.

    Advice to Management

    Emphasize team building instead of focusing on employee arrival an departure times.

    I worked at Ferring Pharmaceuticals full-time

    Pros

    -Some of the best benefits I've ever seen (insurance is just mediocre).
    -President is very charismatic and likable.
    -Company's future looks bright from a business/financial perspective.
    -Excellent work/life balance
    -Has a philosophy that they try to adhere to

    Cons

    -Job function is based entirely on job title, not ability. Job titles are based on who management knows, not what they can do. This immediately leads to frustration, mistakes, massive and frequent delays for any endeavor which ultimately impacts the business.
    -This is where careers go to die. No way to advance unless you play politics.
    -Mentality of "this is how we've always done it" holding back progress.
    -All important decisions based out of other countries, despite being the HQ for the US.
    -Extreme silos between job functions and offices, let alone departments.
    -Philosophy is hit or miss.
    -Minimal extra curricular activities.

    Advice to Management

    Those at the very top are great. Those in middle management need to go. Start looking at what your employees can do, not who they are. Give work based on ability, not their arbitrary title.

    Pros

    Friendly people. Good benefits. High pay. Smaller company compared to big pharmaceutical organizations. Willing to hire inexperienced employees in order to shape them.

    Cons

    Management only looks out for itself. Not willing to contribute to employee success. Highly Disorganized in a lot of ways.

    Advice to Management

    Practice what you preach.

    Pros

    There are some great people here that really care, that treat their coworkers with kindness and respect. Good vacation and decent medical (was better before they switched provider ). Occasional little incentives, like visa gift cards, which aren't much but they are nice when you get them

    Cons

    If you are an ambitious, motivated person that wants to work hard, be part of a team, feel appreciated for your efforts and develop your career, I would seriously reconsider your options. People don't come first, the convenience of senior management does. The negative energy is palpable. Leadership is non existent. It's only a matter of time before turnover begins to skyrocket. This isn't a secret, but no one seems to care. HR treats employees like children that can't be trusted

    Advice to Management

    address the toxic energy bad managers are creating. You must be aware of it. Try listening to what people tell you during their exit interviews. And for the few bad employees you have, consider whether the measures you take are really worth demoralizing all the good ones. Because most of the people here are actually good
