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

    Pros

    I had a great boss who knew what she was going and didnt micromanage. The peers were good, and I was able to work from home so had a lot of flexibility

    Cons

    Senior Management had no idea what they were doing. The company sold its customers to a competitor and sold out all of its employees

    Pros

    Good pay and benefits. Located in a nice area...for now.

    Cons

    Management is too concerned with face time and not about actual work. Not enough to do. Will be moving the headquarters soon closer to Philly or NJ.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Focus more on the quality and quantity of work and less on how many hours are put in by people. People respect companies that value work/life balance.

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

    Pros

    Great "offered" benefits, some good people working for them who are actually concerned about patients

    Cons

    Poorly managed by old-school pharmacists who are either unable or unwilling to grasp pharmacy in the new era. They will be out of business in the next 10 years with necessary changes.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Pay people what they are worth. Focus on patients. Get rid of old "buddies" who work for you when they don't have the company's best interest in mind.

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

    Pros

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

    Cons

    They 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 ManagementAdvice

    I 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.

    Pros

    benefits: RRSP, insurance, 3 weeks vacations, 5 sick days, most holidays off

    Cons

    everybody works next to each other without interacting, the atmosphere is sucking the life out of good people. Poor management. no growing opportunity, your boss won't let you leave internally until you have trained your replacement. job has nothing to do with the job I applied on and was explain during the hiring process. My manager told me they hire nurse only to flash you title to client saying they have nurse on staff but the job is basically being a admin, reimbursement agent in a call center.No critical thinking or clinical judgement needed. There is a lot of non sense to please client's needs. if you are looking for a job not challenging and rest for your brain this is it.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Evaluate your managers, some of them are really bad leaders, cutting corners, micromanaging on trivial issues (like having a clean inbox) and not leading when needed.
