I have been working at AmerisourceBergen

Pros

despite struggling economy the company has done well and continued to hire. Nice perks and good availability of learning opportunities if you have the time

Cons

very long work days times, people in lower positions unfortunately have few opportunities to move up, difficult to balance work/personal life because if you're in higher position you're made to feel guilty about using your PTO throughout the year (most take 1 big vaca- but not everyone can afford that)

Advice to ManagementAdvice

don't burn out your employees, offer flex time, create an environment that supports work/life balance

No opinion of CEO

    I worked at AmerisourceBergen

    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 ManagementAdvice

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

    Decent company - good place to learn and develop professionally. Unfair promotion practices with little HR intervention.

    I worked at AmerisourceBergen

    Pros

    I am no longer at this company (left last year). However, at the time my department offered flexibility in work schedules. I also liked that employees are given many opportunities to pursue professional development through education reimbursement program, on-the-job training and in-house resources.

    Cons

    The downsides mainly revolved around poor management. In the area I worked in (the Lash/Xcenda subsidiary -- a smaller company under the AmerisourceBergen umbrella), there were managers who had been there since the company was much smaller. These managers were unwilling to let go of 'what we always do'.

    There was a big problem with managers hiring personal friends, giving friends the best projects and professional education opportunities (when space was limited), and then promoting those friends to higher positions with better pay over staff with more related experience and higher performance. HR and Sr Management did little address employees' concerns over promotion practices, despite repeated complaints. On some teams, those promoted weren't capable of doing their new job efficiently and the work fell on those who were passed over (leading to a team of disgruntled and unmotivated employees).

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Implement processes to assure the promotion processes are fair to assure you don't lose good people. Award people based on their performance. Be willing to hear new/innovative ideas from those in non-management positions.
