    Out with the old, in with the new..."

    Anonymous Employee (Current Employee)

    ProsEmployee Benefits package is pretty decent.

    ConsMajor changes in upper management. The new team is cleaning house by eliminating positions, adding more responsibility to each person and they are bringing in their own hotshot mgmnt colleagues who don't know much about our business model. I've been with the company over 15 years and it has become unrecognizable to me.

    Advice to Senior ManagementEmployee input is no longer needed or wanted. What management says goes...period! The VP's are too blind to see that our customers and clients are not happy with all of their changes.

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend – I'm not optimistic about the outlook for this company

    Used to be a great company

    Anonymous Employee (Former Employee)
    Frisco, TX

    ProsGood benefits, PTO and company functions.

    ConsRules change at the whim of the Director and Mgr. Intimidation is used. If there is a problem don't go to HR and if you do, it is swept under the rug. Huge turnover on the 2nd floor due to poor management. People who have worked for 6 to 9 years in the US Bioservices part of AmerisourceBergen have left in droves. Many people quit without another job to go to.

    Advice to Senior ManagementJust because a person has the title of Director or Manager after their names make them trustworthy. Listen to your employees, they are trying to tell you something. Not all employee complaints are due to a disgruntled employee.

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend – I'm not optimistic about the outlook for this company

    Solid, stable company with advancement opportunities

    Account Manager Health Systems (Former Employee)
    Sacramento, CA

    ProsGood benefits package
    Good advancement opportunities
    Best pick, pack & ship service in industry
    Improving customer-facing and internal ERP systems

    ConsLow salaries compared to industry standards
    Stale corporate structure & lots of politics
    Advancement not always based on talent, based on politics

    Advice to Senior ManagementToo many chiefs, not enough Indians

    ABSG-ICS was a great company with direction and leadership 6 years ago,

    Anonymous Employee (Former Employee)

    ProsGreat insurance and benefits such as starting with 20 days of PTO, and bonus program equal to 10% of yearly salary- 2%/ 3 qtrs and 2%/ 4th with additional 2% quality bonus

    ConsIf you have no other options and want to work in a high pressure sweat shop for 32 to 34K yr, with no future, this is the company for you! The company used to care about their employees till a year and a half ago when the President, David Cheetham was fired without cause. He had built ICS from nothing to the largest revenue generating division of ABC.

    Advice to Senior ManagementYour employees are humans not numbers.

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend – I'm not optimistic about the outlook for this company

    Frustrating.

    Anonymous Employee (Former Employee)

    ProsExcellent Healthcare benefits, especially in this day and age.
    This is a company that has a LOT of potential to be a GREAT company, both in relations to it's customers and it's employees but for some inexplicable reason chooses not to-instead distancing themselves from their customers (while playing lip service to how important they are) and treating their hourly employees with less regard afforded to lab rats and farm animals.

    ConsAbsolutely no advancement unless you fit their management 'mold'. No diversity in thought, anyone that is not in lockstep with management is viewed with suspicion.

    Management is top heavy, ineffectual and apathetic toward their direct reports.

    The sames mistakes and problems happen repeatedly with management never taking any responsibility for them or doing anything or looking into the why/how these problems keep occurring and the possibility of changing their processes and procedures.

    Salaries are not the greatest, no bonuses for hourly employees (not even token christmas bonuses) despite the fact management receives bonuses for mediocre (at best) performance and the company is doing very well financially in this desperate economy.

    Advice to Senior ManagementTALK to your customers. TALK to your non-salaried employees. Better yet, LISTEN to them, you just might learn a thing or two.

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend

    no opportunity to advance

    Anonymous Employee (Former Employee)
    Mansfield, MA

    Proshigh pay for picking pills
    good health benefits
    401k match
    free giveaway every 6 months
    incentive pay so the harder you work the more pay you get.

    Consdepressing atmosphere.
    supervisors dont communicate with you
    hr only cares about your numbers and could care less about morale.
    incentive pay creates an atmosphere of competition instead of promoting teamwork

    This company is not for career-driven professionals who want to work in a innovative company!

    Anonymous Employee (Current Employee)
    Chesterbrook, PA

    ProsGood location
    Lots of room for improvements throughout the organization
    This company can be turned around with the right leadership.

    ConsThis company does not value, appreciate or respect its employees
    This company does not embrace diversity
    Mgt will accuse you of poor performance and HR will act on termination without any written or demonstrated proof
    This company lags behind in vision, benefits, and employee morale.

    Advice to Senior ManagementRespect employees
    Hold Management responsible for their performance and don't let them point the finger at their subordinates
    Hold leaders accountable for the way they treat employees. If everyone is complaining about a leader, then more than likely there is merit to those complaints.
    Respect the differences that people bring to the organization

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend

    Patient Case Coodinator Review

    Patient Case Coordinator (Current Employee)
    Charlotte, NC

    ProsServes as great professional experience.

    ConsFast paced, focus is not you but the patients. This is regardless to weather conditions also. There is also a lack of consideration of employees being with their family during the holidays.

    Advice to Senior ManagementBe more organized and considerate of the individuals that are constantly taking care of the patients and what they need.

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend

    Was a great Company back then

    Customer Service Representative (Former Employee)
    Pelham, AL

    ProsLoved all my co-workers from warehouse to customer service. Great benefits, great team

    ConsCorporate only cares about how fast and how much money they can make. Closed all the customer service centers except one and hired all new people that do not know what they are doing Customers dropping like flies due to inept CCRs. Wont be long before customer service goes overseas like the other major companies. Corporate knew that this was coming yet still hired new CCRs to fill the gap while they also hired new people to take over our jobs.

    Good benefits, and that's about it.

    Anonymous Employee (Current Employee)

    ProsGood health benefits, paid vacation, and 401K.

    ConsPoor leadership, poor organization. Too many executives uptop that you can't even keep track of who they are or how they even contribute to the company. No bonuses for the people that actually do the work and no respect for hard working employees.

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend
