    Pros

    It would be a pay check.

    Cons

    Poor management with no understanding of there business. Since the former AmeriSource purchased bergen they have allowed key managment from the former bergen to stay in place and make incompetent decisions. As a result they have lost a great deal of knowledge and will soon have the company in chapter 11.

    Advice to Management

    Get out in the field and talk to your customers and improve yourservice.

    Pros

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

    Cons

    This 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 Management

    Respect 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

    Pros

    high 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.

    Cons

    depressing 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

    I worked at AmerisourceBergen full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Good benefits, PTO and company functions.

    Cons

    Rules 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 Management

    Just 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.

    I worked at AmerisourceBergen full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Decentralized, autonomous. Dynamic, fast paced environment with variety. Decisions are almost entirely housed in the site for day to day operations.

    Cons

    Lack of resources, staffing limited, support limited, no advancement, long hours, low pay, no training or travel encouraged. The company allows each DC to work autonomously however this puts a lot of stress on those at the site. There are limited human resources which requires long hours and tough work life balance.

    Advice to Management

    Connect DC's to corporate and have values match the real culture.

    I worked at AmerisourceBergen full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    Some of the people I worked with were great. Used to be like a family

    Cons

    Lot's of favoritism. Not a pleasant place to work anymore. Very low morale.

    Advice to Management

    Make the people important. Without the hourly people, the company isn't any good.

    I have been working at AmerisourceBergen full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

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

    Cons

    The 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 Management

    Give 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.

    Pros

    Benefits are excellent Some great people work there

    Cons

    People 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 Management

    Morale is low. You need to dive into why and fix it!
