    I have been working at AmerisourceBergen full-time

    Pros

    decent pay, good vacation time offered

    Cons

    everything is being consolidated down to 1 or 2 places. Many Customer Service and System Support positions have lost their jobs yet the call volume is only going up. the departments that are left have no idea what they are doing. Customers are realizing this as well

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    I would hire more people. Call wait times for Customer service are ridiculous

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

    Pros

    Generally smart people and many are patient access focused. Good industry reputation. Financially strong. Exposure to most of industry. Opportunity to work remotely.

    Cons

    No work life balance. Management has a passive aggressive borderline personality disorder. HR is a joke. Compensation harmonization - pretty much a middle finger to everyone. Zero growth opportunity unless you are a cultural favorite. Benefits are awful. A new slogan or pep talk every month and it is not working. Constant communication breakdown. IT understaffed, under budgeted and under prioritized.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Been there, done that and even when heard they are not listening. Style over substance.

    Pros

    Health insurance, benefits....that is all I can say good about the company

    Cons

    Started at 12.00 and 3 years later was only making 13.30 and I was a blister packaging operator...they paid new people more...also they are very chauvanistic and show a lot of favoritism...management was horrible...upper management only spoke to certain people

    I worked at AmerisourceBergen full-time for less than a year

    Pros

    Good pay and benefits. There are some tenured employees there that do show a commitment to helping others and the company.

    Cons

    Too many hours worked. Not enough skilled employees. If in management, you work on your days off at home with a company provided laptop. Not a team environment. Key positions don't require a degree, which in turn place unskilled and untrained individuals in those key positions. Turnaround is very high.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Train your employees better. Be more involved with your employees. Walk around the facility and get to know your employees to help with their concerns and issues.

    Pros

    Incentives to get while working

    Cons

    Extremely low pay raises extremely strict attendance policies, long hours, terrible work environment. The company gains the business of biggest pharmaceutical store in the nation make over 400 million last yr and they decide a 500 dollar bonus is adequate not to mention you actually have to qualify for oh and now I get penalized 15 mins for being late 1 minute yea thats great.

    Current Employee - Senior Leader  in  New York, NY
    Current Employee - Senior Leader in New York, NY

    I have been working at AmerisourceBergen for more than 10 years

    Pros

    Honestly – I don’t have any PROS comments.

    Cons

    I received a call from them, regarding an important process. After I got an initial call, and coordinated the next step interview, suddenly I received an email requesting to change the date, because the “person was extremely busy” that day. Then we re-scheduled another date/hour; that day I waited for the call…..never happened! I sent two emails, following up….after three weeks, no one responded. Definitively, NOT A BENCHMARK PRACTICE IN TALENT ACQUISITION.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Shake-up the practice area, make sure you have the right talent in place - with the CARE to potential candidates.

    Note - I'm not a current or former employee

    I have been working at AmerisourceBergen full-time

    Pros

    This used to be a great company with a great history.

    Cons

    We are no longer a great company. This new CEO has no clue as to the value of human resource. Employees, to him, are an expense. I wonder if he can do all our jobs on his own because he certainly cannot do his. He cannot inspire a drowning man to take a breath of air. Our compensation package is on the floor. We are severely underpaid and our benefits are almost non existent.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Employees are no an expense. But then again, incompetent managers do not realize that.

    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 ManagementAdvice

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