    Disapproves of CEO

    I have been working at Ferring Pharmaceuticals full-time for more than 5 years

    Pros

    Some decent products, and some decent people who should be allowed to get on with the job.

    Cons

    Poor senior leadership has consistently let people down. Regular restructures to cut costs but no great vision and moving people around constantly let's customers down.

    Advice to Management

    Need a good clear out of senior management and get people in who understand what they are doing. Good people shouldn't be leaving in the volumes that have gone in any organisation. There are too many disinterested people in the office who don't care about people in the field.
