I worked at AmerisourceBergen

Pros

The health benefits are very good and the cost was very reasonable.
Employees were hard working and easy to get along with.

Cons

You are paid to show up every day. Advancement opportunities for seasoned professionals was non-existent. I did not see any mentoring by middle management.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Your employees are intelligent and hard working. Offer them some ideas for improving their skill set so they can advance.

    Pros

    The Specialty Group was a great company to work for before the recession hit. The pay was really good and the benefits were great. The majority of folks were as nice as they come.

    Cons

    I heard they had to lay some people off in late 2009 and 2010 so I'm not sure what it's like to work there now. Unfortunately, I worked for one of the few bad managers at the Specialty Group so my personal experience was traumatic. Which was a shame because I loved ABSG overall.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Overall, upper management did a great job.

    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 ManagementAdvice

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