I have been working at AmerisourceBergen

Pros

The best reason to work for AmerisourceBergen is that employees get free soft drinks. No kidding! That is the best reason to work for AmerisourceBergen.

Cons

The biggest downside to working at AmerisourceBergen is that the company does not really care about employees. They only care about the shareholder. At fault is our CEO who continuously emphasizes shareholder value. Well, I'd like to see his famed shareholders come in and do my job and generate the revenues that I generate to keep this company going! Shareholders just buy shares--employees make the company! Unfortunately, AmerisourceBergen's management doesn't see that.

The company is also poorly focused. For example, they just recently kicked off what I would call their 'minority tolerance campaign' but they completely have the wrong approach. The only minority that they see are blacks. And teaching tolerance is not teaching acceptance; it's just being a hypocrite.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Kick your shareholders to the curb and start appreciating your employees!

Stop telling me to cut corners and stop cutting back on benefits and start spending less on corporate travel. How come executives can't take a taxi when they travel and opt for limo services? I am still waiting for a new chair which I am sure we could afford if you stop taking clients out on $4,000 dinners!

Stop hiring Project Managers! Last time I checked, project management was part of an executive's job description.

Stop being penny wise and dollar stupid.

Get rid of the buddy system that has developed and engulfed the company. It has done nothing but create a culture of fear and a hostile work environment.

    I worked at AmerisourceBergen

    Pros

    The comraderie between sales associates was exceptional. Consultative sales in the healthcare industry was challenging and fun.

    Cons

    Sales associates were not rewarded based on their true accomplishments. There was much prejudice within the sales management team. There was a system for sales associated to review their standings; however, this was taken away when some of the top performers were not being rewarded accordingly. Lies are prevalent within management.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Evaluate sales management's procedures for reviewing others amd the validity of them.

    I worked at AmerisourceBergen

    Pros

    Health benefits were pretty good.

    Cons

    As a developer, there is no way you will EVER do new development. You would end up being a maintenance monkey while all development is farmed out to contract houses.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Let your software developers develop. They know the business from the inside.
