Better be a rockstar

Financial Analyst (Former Employee)
Frisco, TX

I worked at AmerisourceBergen full-time for less than a year

ProsLocation is great and most people are amazing to work with. The pay was really good.

ConsIf management finds someone that they prefer for your position, they will just fire you. So you better be a rockstar.

Advice to Senior ManagementYou need to have better communication with your employees and you need to make your employees feel like you actually support them. If one of your employee's job is in jeopardy, it is only ethical to let them know. Don't just fire them and make up some story to get rid of them.

– I'm optimistic about the outlook for this company

Career Track

Anonymous Employee (Former Employee)

I worked at AmerisourceBergen full-time for more than 3 years

ProsThis is a good company especially for young adults as there is lots of training provided, and a career track that can lead one to management.

ConsSort of out of touch policies.

Advice to Senior ManagementEverything is not simply black and white -- some differences are healthy. While rules are important, it is also good to have some flexibility to allow for innovation. It is important that certain protocols are met, but a good idea can go a long, long way. This also engages the associates to invest mrs of themselves into their work and to the company.

Somewhere in the middle

Anonymous Employee (Current Employee)

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

ProsThe company is stable, coworkers were mostly great, and management was knowledgeable

ConsNo work life balance, you will not get promoted unless someone is your friend, no bonuses, and the pay is low

Advice to Senior ManagementGive others besides yourself bonuses and increase the work life balance.

My first full-time gig after college is mediocre

Patient Care Coordinator (Current Employee)
Monroeville, PA

I have been working at AmerisourceBergen full-time for less than a year

ProsYou a part of a big team so things are flexible. Great benefits - you accrue 20 days of PTO per year in your first year. Fairly easy to move up in the company.

ConsHigh turnover. You lose some of your hourly pay if you switch to an earlier shift after you've been working a few months.

Benefits verification specialist

Benefit Verification Specialist (Current Employee)
Charlotte, NC

I have been working at AmerisourceBergen full-time for less than a year

ProsBeing a benefits verification specialist was a great opportunity and learning experience.

Great Benefits. Poor Work/Life Balance on Second Shift

Warehouse Associate (Former Employee)

I worked at AmerisourceBergen full-time for more than 3 years

ProsGreat health insurance & overall benefits package

ConsNature of second shift here is that you work until all orders are filled. There were times when that meant an extra four hours tacked on to the end of your shift. We had very hard workers and ran very lean. I get it-- That's what makes this division more profitable. But there comes a point when morale is so low due to poor work/life balance (how do you plan your personal life when you don't know if you will be able to get enough sleep to function the next day in your role as parent, spouse, partner, caretaker, etc?) that management needs to step up and not just give lip-service to getting you more help, but actually do so. Don't get me wrong-- The overtime money was great, but often not worth what I gave up in my home/personal life.

Advice to Senior ManagementThink more creatively on how to make second shift hours a bit more predictable for your employees, and not perpetuate the "This is how it's always been on second shift" attitude.

Strong company and great presence in marketplace.

Accounts Receivable Supervisor (Former Employee)

I worked at AmerisourceBergen full-time for more than 5 years

ProsNice environment with co-workers. Company experienced tremendous growth which allowed insight to industry and operations. If opportunities are taken, you can learn a lot about the industry from various perspectives.

ConsManagement tends to panic and look for scapegoat when things go wrong. Some of their long term employees are the biggest problems yet remain on staff. Pay was lagging behind others in industry.

Advice to Senior ManagementDo not view every situation superficially, dig deeper. When taking on new projects or making agreements with customers that require innovation, think the situation through and ensure there is an understanding as to what needs to be done to accomplish the goal. They are too quick to jump without understanding the true challenge.
