    Pros

    There is nothing good about this company. Everithing is a hoax. Stay away if you have a college degree.

    Cons

    horrible compliance. Very umprofessional, uncouth and ill prepare management. Management will not abdocate for anyone, not even for worngfull discrimination. Legal oriented and risk oriented. If you have a college degree, this company is not for you.

    Advice to Management

    Be more ethical, moral, and more sensitive toward MHE I and MHE II warrhouse personell.

    Pros

    NONE, but maybe one: The best benefits package I have ever seen, hands down. But, found out why, because the job is terrible. You also usually get two days off a week. Good luck with inventory it is all day and on your day off.

    Cons

    You might as well be working back 3 centuries ago building pyramids and getting whipped by task masters. WILL BE WORKED TO DEATH AND 10-12 Hour days is the NORM! None of the people are friendly cause they all hate the job, don't expect anything other...People will quit after one day to 90 days to a year. You are a number and will be treated as such. Good luck is all I have to say. If you get put in shipping, especially you will end up hating your life. Probably better off just not even bothering with this job and calling it a day. Because if this is your job for the rest of your life, or the next two years, it might as well be like living in hell. The ol saying smoke em if you got em applies here.

    Advice to Management

    Pay 18-25 dollars a hour, only way to get people to stay. Give all holidays off, quit making orders so huge and taking 12 hours to complete the process

    Job Stability beautiful work setting in house café free parking culturally diverse workforce

    Cons

    No sense of team, poor leadership skills at many leadership positions Elitist attitude of staff and managers. inconsistent application of corporate policies regarding dress code and monitoring/enforcement of productivity. Blatant disrespect my management. The corporate values are just in word, not deed

    Advice to Management

    mystery shop the programs by phone, and in person to see. Especially if the person is a highly capable man of color.

    Pros

    Great Co workers and Chesterbrook is convenient location for 76, 202, 30, 252 travelers.

    Cons

    HR leadership is horrible and unethical. Tons of unanswered formal complaints against them. IT is downsizing. There is no dining -only vending machines or food trucks. Executives disliked the location so much, they moved to a fancy office and left everyone else behind. Benefits are way too expensive if you fall between 60k and 100k per year. A lowly coordinator who makes 60k pays same as CEO for benefits. Unless you are looking for a job in pharmacy specifically, don't work for Amerisourcebergen. The support teams (IT, L and D, HR, etc.) suffer as cost rather than profit centers.

    Advice to Management

    Add a gym onsite. Bring back dining room (closed for flood and never reopened) Investigate issues in IT and HR. I hear people in HR are afraid of their bosses. People who loved their work and their job are now exceedingly unhappy. Pay attention to formal complaints. Value the employees who work their life away to make you obscene amounts on money, ...because it doesn't feel like you do. Create some mid level manager accountability so they fully support their teams. Fix the benefits pricing for folks who make 60k or more. Rediculous that the pricing is split at that level and not at 100k or even higher.

    Pros

    the pay is good. the time time off is excellent. and people will always need drugs so this company is just going to get bigger and bigger, so job security is a plus.

    Cons

    ( I would give negative stars if I could!) You will need all 4 weeks of the time off in order to recuperate from the long hours ( 10 - 13 hr days if you work 8 hour shifts and 12 -14.5 hours if you are on the 4 day a week 10 hour shift) and mental exhaustion you will experience here. you will see explicit favoritism and may be bullied in front of your coworkers by supervisors. your HIPPA rights are violated by supervisors telling your medical issues to your coworkers when you miss work and HR will take the supervisors side against you. You can be falling down with fever and supervisors will walk past and ask "are we having fun yet?" even when it is obvious that you are extremely unwell. Your coworkers will be the ones to watch to make sure you dont collapse even after they have reported to a supervisor that you are very sick. Then when the you can no longer stand and you DO collapse your coworkers will carry you out of the warehouse. You will not be safe to drive home but you just hope you make it. When they add more and more work you will suffer exhaustion and sleep depravity. likely to have accidents or make errors and since this is a pharmaceutical warehouse you have to make 99.97% accuracy.... We were told that fatigue was "NO EXCUSE FOR ERRORS!" ( Unless your supervisor likes you ALOT *wink, wink* , then you can make all you like and you will never be written up) There was a man that had a heart attack when i was there but didnt want to leave to go to the hospital because he didnt want to get points on hos attendence (It was MONDAY!! 5Thats POINTS!) there was another man taken out of there on two different occasions from exhaustion ( he typically worked 60 hours per week) a lady had a head-on collision after several 14 hour days and she had told people she was feeling unsafe to drive. you will be screwed out of almost every bonus..you can work longer hours and the work load will double and they will still say you didnt make the projectated goals... goals set so high they know you wont make them. and then they will tell you that its isnt your fault...the goals were over estimated , that clients who said they were going to sign decided not to and other clients left the company. so it wasnt your fault, ( and it wasnt, there was NOTHING you could have done to in anyway make a difference in this)---but they still arent giving you your bonus. This is a pharmacutical warehouse and your day is not over until the last box is on the last truck. do not think you have a "quitting time". you will stay until they allow you to leave so you best have a babysitter that lives with you.

    Advice to Management

    Appreciate people who work hard for you and show up everyday for years without ever calling in. when they are ill and have to call in on a monday issue points on a case to case basis. NOT an automatic 5 points for a monday call in--if someone has never called in in 3, 4 or 5 years then realize that they MUST BE SICK! Ive worked WITH A DRS NOTE saying not to work because i went to the dr at 4 pm on a sunday but i would still have gotten 5 points if i called in even with that note. . RECOGNIZE if someone calls in 24 hours in advance its likely they did it because they know they dont want to come in on a monday ( mondays suck and people know it and they know if they call 24 hours in advance they are off the hook. notice those that repeatedly abuse the system rather than punishing those that cant avoid missing work on a monday once in 3 years!) MOST of the time you arent going to know 24 hrs in advance if you will feel better by 9:30 am or your condition may worsen during the night...and you cant predict getting food poisoning on sunday night and who are you going to call on a sunday morning anyway? Heres a suggestion for you: When you have made $100 BILLION dollars in revenue dont give your employees a cake with that on it the same day you tell them they arent getting their bonus AGAINNNNN!! It shows exactly how little you care about the people working 14 hour shifts for you....also dont tell them that that you bought them pizza to celebrate but limit it to 2 slices and give them a cookie THAT YOU MAKE THEM SIGN FOR!!! (Who keeps a cookie manifest??? you cheap bastards!) I would give you a negative star on this site if I could!!

    Pros

    -Pay is somewhat OK for the redundant work load -It's a job....

    Cons

    -Everything -Everything If you are truly interested in staying in the medical field, this is not the company for you. This is simply a distribution center for drugs distributed by Bayer. Depending on which drug team you're on, your work flow is different. The facility is nice. The environment is soooooo elementary. Instead of worrying about productivity, they care what time u go to the bathroom and whether or not you cell phone is visible on your desk I was told I was being interviewed for a reimbursement counselor position...even in the interview, i was given the description of such. LIES. Absolutely not....I was told the only real reimbursement counselors for my particular department are stationed in Texas & that i would just be taking inbound calls placing orders for whichever of the two drugs they wanted. Legit sitting in a cubicle all day placing "McDonald-like" orders. I wish I would've stayed where I was, I only came here thinking this would be a career heighten-er...wrong..now an 1 1/2 hr commute, & a pb&j from being in elementary school...i am so dissatisfied. I have written to HR, my concerns have not been addressed. I am so nervous to address management directly until I have another door open- soon hopefully- I'm stuck here to be unhappy.

    Advice to Management

    Update your job description The daily responsibilities of everyone in the department have absolutely nothing to do with the role of a reimbursement counselor....this is a distribution center, and you need to solicite DISTRIBUTION REPS...or a more suitable base...you're tricking over qualified people into doing your bottom of the barrel work & placing them in a call center! not okay.

    Pros

    Great work life balance, get to go home every day at 4 and no expectation to work from home.

    Cons

    Very poorly run, no room to grow and any desire to grow your career is a waste of time. Says a lot about a department when 7 people leave in a matter in a matter of 3 months. Leaders at corporate need to open their eyes to what is going on at the NRC.

    Advice to Management

    Have an HR presence and open your eyes to what is going on at the NRC, when 7 people leave in a department of 15 or so in a matter of months, something is wrong and should be looked at.
