    Pros

    Great work life balance, get to go home every day at 4 and no expectation to work from home.

    Cons

    Very poorly run, no room to grow and any desire to grow your career is a waste of time. Says a lot about a department when 7 people leave in a matter in a matter of 3 months. Leaders at corporate need to open their eyes to what is going on at the NRC.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Have an HR presence and open your eyes to what is going on at the NRC, when 7 people leave in a department of 15 or so in a matter of months, something is wrong and should be looked at.

    Pros

    The coworkers, family environment among the coworkers only. Management doesnt care. cant think of anything else. Besides that two

    Cons

    Management, so unorganized, long, long, long hours. Sometime work until 5:30, 6 am come in at 3pm. Spring last minute changes on you. Expect you to work regardless of other obligations. Seen 5 people quit in one day. Some people work 12 hrs no lunch or break, while Operations Supervisors and Managers do nothing. Poor place fo work.

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

    Pros

    Laid back work environment. Usual office politics exists (I've seen better and I've seen worse - this is somewhere in the middle). A little conservative when it comes to building stuff on newer technologies. If you're looking to be a big fish in a small pond, this is the right place.

    Cons

    Slow-paced. Too much bureaucracy. Unapologetically process-oriented. Everyone's focused on CYA, so everyone's afraid of making decisions.

    It pays well, they worked with my schedule and the people there were very friendly. They always fed us as a company to show their appreciation

    The hours were too long, the work was very intense and the company is not organized well. Some of the workers were very disrespectful

    Better organization as a company

    I worked at AmerisourceBergen

    Pros

    Good work life balance, guaranteed to be done at 4pm everyday and not have to take your work home with you. Also, 20 days off in first year. If you are a yes man, this is the place for you!

    Cons

    There are absolutely no career advancement opportunities unless it is a in role promotion i.e buyer 1, 2 and if you are promoted, it is kept on the low down. The culture and technology is embarrassing to the point that EVERY report is still printed and you will have to sacrifice your first born to have anything emailed or done via the internet. If you want to further your career or learn anything besides being told what to do, please look elsewhere.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    There is no HR, no view to the company outside of the NRC except what your director decides to tell you. Which in most cases, is nothing. No exit interviews and no chance of raising any concerns past the VP.

    Pros

    I liked it that the supervisors didnt micromanage and there were some genuinely unique and friendly, funny people there.

    Cons

    There was little, if any direction from Ditrectors, Project managers. It seemed like there was a lot of infancy in this company and anyone coming in expecting a world class business technique or model may find there is a lot lacking,.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Be organized in creating a model of expectations while creating projects. Take time to get to know the strengths of the people who are working for you. Don't engage in sophomoric talk during meetings and act less like you are in high school. I actually witnessed Directors who asked peers within a group how other members of the group were working out and then used those conversations as a way to determine what was being accomplished by the employee, like I said very "High School' behaviors in place and they need to end that practice.

    Pros

    The company values there associates and does a lot to engage the diverse cultures they have within the building. Plan on getting feed at least 3 times a month. You learn to wear lots of hats.

    Cons

    The systems fails often whether on the corporate level or internal level. Having said that expect to work 15-18 hr days on the regular. Family and quality of life suffers the most!

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    The bonus program is good for both hourly and salary associates. Personal growth is limited due to being too involved the the day to day operation.

    I worked at AmerisourceBergen

    Pros

    Plenty of jobs to go around.

    Cons

    Culture, culture, culture. The culture is not one of "excellence", but more along the lines of "well, somebody's gotta do this job", which aligns perfectly to the company's business model. C-level employees are not in touch with their workers. Fortune 25 company does not have a cafeteria for employees, or work-out facilities. Very low-margin attitude that matches its low-margin business model. Zero enthusiasm or passion. Leadership and imagination is lacking at President and VP levels.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Change HQ office to Center City, Philadelphia, instead of the ghetto of Conshohocken. Increase pay to at least the industry-average. Recruit smarter people at lower levels.
