    Pros

    Fair benefits are ok, not the greatest. They will sometimes stick out for employees, only if you meet ethnicity criteria.

    Cons

    TERRIBLE COMPANY!!!!! I made a mistake to work there. company managers and compliance are predominately Caucasian and they will discriminate MHE personnel. Job offerings looks good on paper but the reality is that once on the job you will either become a enslaved and managers will find reasons to get rid of you if you don't perform.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Step out of your office and treat people with dignity and respect. Pay employees what they are worth and give MHE personnel a more dignified environment to work.

    Pros

    Pay was good, nice building. Central Industrial part of Ville Saint Laurent in Montreal.

    Cons

    Work atmosphere toxic with old employees trying to poison the new hires and succeeding most of the time. One old employee told she had been there of almost 15 years and hated it????

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Survey what the older hires are telling the new hires and make a clean out of all the old guard, with negative attitudes.

    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

    the pros are that I have a job and a paycheck

    Cons

    Extremely negative environment, no positive feedback, no celebrations, barely any socialization or team spirit. Unprofessional behavior is accepted and even rewarded at times. Managers avoid responsibility of supporting their direct reports. It's every man for themselves type of atmosphere.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Hire the number of employees to support the business, this may help with the current low morale.

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

    Pros

    Well lit parking. The office space is adequate; not indicative of a Fortune 30 company but still adequate. The cleaning crew does a great job keeping the place clean. Benefits are OK, but not the best that money can buy. You can tell that our benefits were picked amongst the low hanging fruit.

    Cons

    Everything is a one-way conversation. They talk to you, not with you. Every single time that the company creates a mess and has to clean it up, they come up with a communication strategy that is a one way feed. They are so desperate to sell you on the message that covers up their incompetence that they've left no room for any type of discussion.

    Only friends of friends are acknowledged and rewarded. I just saved the company millions of dollars in litigation costs but I won't even be slapped on the back for doing that. However, if I was part of the click, I would be recognized during the annual ABC Vision and Values Awards. That's how things run at AmerisourceBergen.

    The company is growing but not growing our paychecks. We are severely underpaid. If you are on salary, you are basically working for free. Between the travel time and the hours that you have to waste in mindless meetings, you put in time equivalent to three employees.

    We are so underpaid that the majority of our employees have to work three hours to be able to afford the copay that they must pay when seeing their primary care physician. They would have to work nine hours to also afford the copay for most prescriptions covered under our drug plan benefit.

    The money that the company makes is returned to WallStreet because the powers that be receive millions in stock options. So they must do anything and everything to ensure that shares value is increased.

    Even our 401K contributions are a joke. The company claims that it matches up to 5% of your contributions but the formula that they use to calculate that match pretty much gives you roughly $300 a year in company matching contributions. The company provides some rather selective and questionable investment options for employee 401K plans that pretty much ensure that you invest in the company's stock no matter what.

    That's the reality of AmerisourceBergen.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    No advice because management does not care about listening and cares even less about employees.

    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 for 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.

    Current Employee - Senior Leader  in  New York, NY
    Current Employee - Senior Leader in New York, NY

    I have been working at AmerisourceBergen for more than 10 years

    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
