I guess?

Specialty Pharmacy Liaison (Current Employee)
Rockville, MD

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

ProsThey always seem to be hiring which is a plus for a lot of people. Depending on which team you're on the work isn't awful. There is job stability if you're on the right team and if the right people in management like you.

ConsDepending on who your upper management is or which pharmaceutical company you're actually working for it can make your life pretty unbearable. At the beginning of the year they hire a massive amount of temporary employees but most don't know what they're doing and it causes those of us who work here normally to have to double our work to assist with the newer employees or totally redo what they've already done.

Very dysfunctional work environment.

Anonymous Employee (Current Employee)

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

ProsBenefits are excellent
Some great people work there

ConsPeople are promoted to their level of incompetence
Company likes to talk about improving morale but does nothing else
Employees are commodities that can be easily replaced
The drug wholesaler business is very competitive with little margins
Company is behind in technology and when they do implement new technology, it is done poorly.

Advice to Senior ManagementMorale is low. You need to dive into why and fix it!

I really enjoy going to work everyday.

Patient Care Coordinator (Current Employee)
Monroeville, PA

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

ProsThe management is great, many perks, and my co-worker are like family. Plus, I love the fact that it is so close to home.

ConsSo far with the short time that I have been there,I really haven't seen any down sides. I don't know what to say on that subject.

Advice to Senior ManagementPlease don't change.

Salaries way below industry standards

Anonymous Employee (Current Employee)
Frisco, TX

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

ProsI love the people I work with, it's a stable company with large earning potential and growth, great benefits package

ConsThe goals that Senior Management set for some of the business units this year were completely unattainable causing some to not get their bonuses. People rely on the bonus to put them somewhere closer to a salary they can survive on. This company does not reward it's employees. A 2% raise on an "Exceeds Expectations" review per year is not acceptable. People can't live on that and deal with inflation. I hear about a lot of people that are looking for either a second job or looking to leave the company completely.

Advice to Senior ManagementGive back to your employees. You have experienced HUGE earnings, you should put some of that back into the people that have gotten you there. Especially the lower level workers. The amount of turnover has got to be costing the company quite a bit in training new personnel.

Initially, this was an awesome company to join.

Reimbursement Counselor (Current Employee)
Charlotte, NC

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

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

ConsThey 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 Senior ManagementI 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.
