The company always say their people come first, but the dollar always comes first with them. If their is a layoff, which of course they say they never do, but they do, it is very random. Seniority or numbers mean nothing. they will throw an established person away for a younger person.

System Administrator (Former Employee) – Parsippany, NJ – 2 April 2018
Ferring is a company that "puts people first," per their oft referenced philosophy statement. As a company, they do treat their employees as well as they can. Benefits are nice, work hours are balanced, and the culture is very friendly.
However, as an employee working for their technology department, management is based out of Copenhagen, Denmark. The IT management team has an absurd way of not only relying on consultants for the bulk of the work, but also for direction of the department as well. Ideas and experience outside of the Copenhagen office are hopelessly ignored, and even looked down upon. Change, at its core, is feared - unless, of course, suggested by a consultant. This type of ideology has a direct effect on the business and budget.
In short, IT is hurting the business.
The work environment for IT employees outside of Copenhagen is a political game of trying to do your job with extremely limited resources while ensuring management stays happy by not suggesting any improvements to process.
On site bistro/restaurant, good benefits, beautiful campus, nice culture
IT management needs complete overhaul, department centralized in one location, extreme reliance on outside consultants, change is feared, management is inexperienced, politics is the name of the game in IT
Senior Consultant, Data Warehousing Architecture (Former Employee) – Denville, NJ – 6 March 2018
While I did exceptionally well with the Marketing and Business operation, the IT management was not upto the par in operation. They needed a lot more than ex-developer to press the IT requirement and build up.

Organizational changes are directly contradicting what the company is looking to achieve. This creates some gaps between resources needed and those allocated. Great people to work with and comp and benefits are competitive
