Pros

Management and executives are for the most part very unpretentious and down to earth. As a result, it is a more relaxed and comfortable place to work. Distribution has been a low-tech, low paying industry, but ABC has been updating its business processes and personnel to become more in tune with competitors and other companies following the merger of ten years ago. Very stable company and will continue to grow as drug use grows and generics take more of the market. No risk of being acquired.

Cons

Distribution is a very low margin business, consequently that pervades the corporate culture. The CEO talks about pinching pennies, and he's right. Salaries are lower than comparable positions in other industries, as are benefits. Fight for as much salary and position as possible. There are a lot of VP's because it's the only way they can stay competitive with other companies on salary. They do have stock options, although less than other industries i'm famiilar with.

Advice to Management

Provide a roadmap for career or salary advancement for high achieving managers and directors

    Pros

    If not in BT this is very much a 9-5 job. Managers pretty much leave you alone as long as you get the job done. Relaxed atmosphere.

    Cons

    Old fashioned when it comes to tele-commuting. Low on benefits, 6 holidays a year and everybody starts with 2 weeks vacation. I hear bonuses are great but only managers get them. It's a no frills company.

    Pros

    If not int he BT program your hours are cake, in by 9, out by 4:30. Benefits are so so. Some managers are good people.

    Cons

    BT leadership faultering. Project late and 30 million over budget. SAP implementation gone bad. HR laying off people to the tune of 1 or 2 a week for last 8 weeks, heading to and from each department.

    Advice to Management

    Start making decisions that actually make sense. stop acting as if every little thign were a fire drill. Get a hold of your huge cast of consultants that avg $350 an hour bill rate...
