    Pros

    Well-intentioned company and people outside of IT leadership seem to really care about the company. The company itself is growing and expanding to new markets and countries. This company is doing well financially too. Most of the people are a pleasure to work with.

    Cons

    IT leadership is a revolving door. They recently hired new leadership who promptly brought in cronnies and recently announced to let go 50+ people in favor of outsourced IT functions. There's a hatchet women at the helm and this is the 3rd or 4th re-organization of IT. It's no wonder nothing gets done! If you're skilled and talented, you're viewed as a threat and relegated to the basement. This is a great place to come if you like constant change, inept leadership, posturing bosses and being a robot. Stay under the radar and you'll do well.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Stop trying to fix what isn't really broke. Stick with an IT strategy and run with it. It's easy to keep all the balls in the air that way you can say nothing gets done because all the balls are in the air! Stop juggling and start strategizing and working.

    Pros

    I liked it that the supervisors didnt micromanage and there were some genuinely unique and friendly, funny people there.

    Cons

    There was little, if any direction from Ditrectors, Project managers. It seemed like there was a lot of infancy in this company and anyone coming in expecting a world class business technique or model may find there is a lot lacking,.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Be organized in creating a model of expectations while creating projects. Take time to get to know the strengths of the people who are working for you. Don't engage in sophomoric talk during meetings and act less like you are in high school. I actually witnessed Directors who asked peers within a group how other members of the group were working out and then used those conversations as a way to determine what was being accomplished by the employee, like I said very "High School' behaviors in place and they need to end that practice.

    Pros

    you get a paycheck every 2 weeks.

    Cons

    management has no people skills, they are afraid of losing their jobs because there are just too many managers and too little workers. the managers don't want to do their part so they overload their subordinates and micromanage them because they have nothing else to do. The CIO seems down to earth but is totally out of touch with lower level managers and how unprofessional they behave. Management discriminates in every way, race, age, sex, etc. Frat house environment and when you disagree with the behavior..YOU are the problem,.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Investigate the lower levels of management, people are suffering. Also, take a look at your unsympathetic HR dept in Chesterbrook. If they don't care, they should at least try and fake it, HR is intimidating and you feel like you have no where to turn when being harassed and bullied other than to look elsewhere for employment.

    Pros

    A building with a parking deck is nice that you do no have to pay for like the city of Chicago parking

    Cons

    Hired to be in bound call center and that you were hired to only take calls for Walgen. Only and the pay was was for that it was inbound call center only ( not so), mandatory weekend( for training)'if a co worker ask you how you feel--- you better be Pro company---- or you are wrote up or even fired for letting a co worker know weekend work is hard on your family (especially when you are a single mom and it will cost you even if you can find a sitter.....The pay does not match the work you must do"......you are micro managed.. To the point of having to put a caller on hold.. To answer IM,High ,why is the call take longer than is on the list of time..we'll looking up credits, taking orders and seeing why the supervisor did not call them back ....But please keep in mind if you share with management team or anyone else( survey you are sent) you Better say the company is great!!!!
    To JUST be thankful you have a job

    I have been working at AmerisourceBergen full-time

    Pros

    decent pay, good vacation time offered

    Cons

    everything is being consolidated down to 1 or 2 places. Many Customer Service and System Support positions have lost their jobs yet the call volume is only going up. the departments that are left have no idea what they are doing. Customers are realizing this as well

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    I would hire more people. Call wait times for Customer service are ridiculous

    I have been working at AmerisourceBergen full-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    Generally smart people and many are patient access focused. Good industry reputation. Financially strong. Exposure to most of industry. Opportunity to work remotely.

    Cons

    No work life balance. Management has a passive aggressive borderline personality disorder. HR is a joke. Compensation harmonization - pretty much a middle finger to everyone. Zero growth opportunity unless you are a cultural favorite. Benefits are awful. A new slogan or pep talk every month and it is not working. Constant communication breakdown. IT understaffed, under budgeted and under prioritized.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Been there, done that and even when heard they are not listening. Style over substance.

    Pros

    Incentives to get while working

    Cons

    Extremely low pay raises extremely strict attendance policies, long hours, terrible work environment. The company gains the business of biggest pharmaceutical store in the nation make over 400 million last yr and they decide a 500 dollar bonus is adequate not to mention you actually have to qualify for oh and now I get penalized 15 mins for being late 1 minute yea thats great.

    Pros

    Honestly – I don’t have any PROS comments.

    Cons

    I received a call from them, regarding an important process. After I got an initial call, and coordinated the next step interview, suddenly I received an email requesting to change the date, because the “person was extremely busy” that day. Then we re-scheduled another date/hour; that day I waited for the call…..never happened! I sent two emails, following up….after three weeks, no one responded. Definitively, NOT A BENCHMARK PRACTICE IN TALENT ACQUISITION.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Shake-up the practice area, make sure you have the right talent in place - with the CARE to potential candidates.

    Note - I'm not a current or former employee
