    Pros

    Everyone is always willing to help

    Cons

    Everyone helps mostly with wrong information

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Be more connected with the team. There is a disconnect between management and team members.

    Pros

    Good pay and benefits. Located in a nice area...for now.

    Cons

    Management is too concerned with face time and not about actual work. Not enough to do. Will be moving the headquarters soon closer to Philly or NJ.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Focus more on the quality and quantity of work and less on how many hours are put in by people. People respect companies that value work/life balance.

    Pros

    Great "offered" benefits, some good people working for them who are actually concerned about patients

    Cons

    Poorly managed by old-school pharmacists who are either unable or unwilling to grasp pharmacy in the new era. They will be out of business in the next 10 years with necessary changes.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Pay people what they are worth. Focus on patients. Get rid of old "buddies" who work for you when they don't have the company's best interest in mind.

    I have been working at AmerisourceBergen full-time (more than 8 years)

    Pros

    They have great benefits, but really need work on opportunities for career advancement.

    Cons

    They have recently hired managers with no experience in medical insurance. They have strictly started hiring managers from other call centers who are not well-versed on medical benefits. This has created a disconnect between managers and workers. It has also allowed management to implement unrealistic expectations on the company's staff.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    I would like them to take an honest look at their goals and expectations for an 8 hour work day, and realize how impossible their goals are for their employees to meet those goals on a daily basis. Please realize that if one benefit verification call is 30 minutes or more then it will be impossible to consistently meet such high expectations. I would also prefer that the company review their hiring guidelines for program managers, and make it a requirement that those program managers have at least on year of experience of verifying and documenting medical insurance prior to becoming program managers.

    I have been working at AmerisourceBergen full-time (more than 10 years)

    Pros

    The people who are the backbone of the company are great people. Benefits are really good (medical, dental, 401k, etc.), good discounts to other vendors, Ford, Dell, Verizon, and so forth.

    Cons

    NO one cares what you think and changes are being made with no detailed plans. If you are older or have been with the company for a long time, you won't last long. They want to turnover the whole workforce and infuse it with new people. Education and experience are no longer valued, just do what you're told and keep your mouth shut.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Wake up and start listening to the people that are actually doing the work. Dump all the consultants and pay attention to the dedicated loyal people that have given you their blood, sweat, and tears. If things don't change soon not only will the turnover be out of control but every location will have a union.

    I have been working at AmerisourceBergen (more than 5 years)

    Pros

    Pay is ok and benefits are good

    Cons

    Lots of perks and special considerations if you are in the right click with management. Your best bet is to be a buddy to one of them(outside of work). Unrealistic demands from managment and dont expect to have a life outside of work. Lots of favoritism. They send out another survey for employees to complete, but they have not done anything with the results from the last one (don't expect management to follow through with the results). Upper management needs to look at the "whole" picture, Accounts Payable management leave much to be desired. There are many unfair and unethical probiing questions from Management and do not expect Human Resources to be helpful. Some employees can use up their vacation and personal time and still get more time off, while others have to fight for their entitlement. Many unfair practices within the management team.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Realize that employees have a life outside of work and be realistic. Expectations are a two way streeet.
