    I have been working at AmerisourceBergen as a contractor (More than a year)

    Pros

    It is fun working here. They offer free beverages all day long. And sometimes the boss treats us to lunch. They are flexible and understanding if you need scheduling changes.

    Cons

    I'm only a temp (Contractor).

    Pros

    Enjoyed the hiring managers that I partnered with and what AmerisourceBergen stands for.

    Cons

    Not a good work environment. Management makes you feel like you're walking on egg shells. Does not provide opportunities for growth.

    Advice to Management

    Appreciate the talent you have and help develop your employees by presenting new growth opportunities.

    I have been working at AmerisourceBergen full-time

    Pros

    AmerisourceBergen has a flexible work environment and appreciates its associates. I truly enjoy my coworkers and feel like I'm contributing to a great cause.
    Good benefits, PTO. Pay is very competitive. Upper management cascade information and future plans with team members; and displays full confidence in subordinates.
    Great work life balance.

    Cons

    Some time deadlines are very tight.
    Project requirements are delayed sometime and lack of planning in testing.

    Advice to Management

    Need to invest more on technical and inter-personal training for IT staff.

    Pros

    Great benefits, teamwork atmosphere, opportunities abound

    Cons

    Top 20 in Fortune 500 resulting in having to answer to investors. Recent layoffs in back office operations and sales helped 'trim the fat'. A lot of good talent lost.

    Advice to Management

    Be more compassionate to those impacted by layoffs and show them a little dignity.

    Pros

    Respectful and hard-working colleagues. Teamwork is valued.

    Cons

    Company penny-pinches to the point of the ridiculous. Their words say they value employees, work/life balance, etc, but their actions do not back that up.

    Advice to Management

    Put your money where your mouth is. Treat employees as valuable assets. Don't keep taking away.

    I have been working at AmerisourceBergen (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Good benefits, a lot of PTO. Loved working there when I first started. Co-workers, Supervisors and Managers were all very nice and it was a family type atmosphere. But then the company moved to a different city and everything changed and not for the better.

    Cons

    Since the company moved to Richardson and increased hiring, the company is not the same. They should be more selective in the hiring process. The quality of reps that are being hired are not professional and there is starting to be a lot of drama. The Supervisors are not qualified to lead and they know absolutely nothing.

    Advice to Management

    Hire from within. Hire the people who have been with the company and know how the queues work. You should not expect perfection from everyone everyday. There are times when everyone make mistakes

    I have been working at AmerisourceBergen full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Constant M&As, equals tons of work. Co-workers are great. There is definitely a "we are in this together" mentality for the most part. Decent health care. Decent matching 401k. Decent paid time off (if you are allowed to take it)

    Cons

    Exponential layers of management, people not qualified to manage people, haven't a clue about leadership and what it truly entails, haven't a clue about the hands on work necessary.

    Advice to Management

    Purge extensively. Go through the ranks and see who is truly contributing and who is just layer on layer...who has been there for ten plus years and just going through the motions, who has had plenty of issues retaining people.

    Pros

    Nice suburban location if you like suburbia. Good Sales, Marketing, and Warehouse teams.

    Cons

    IT management has a terrible attitude towards employees and contractors

    Advice to Management

    Gut the IT department and hire forward thinking energetic management. Don't treat resource planning like you're running a widget factory. Stop planning to 15 minute increments in IT and get rid of the power hungry, dictatorial IT management team.

    "Excellent for Entry-Level, Junior, and Above"

    Pros

    Entry-level and junior associates are given plenty of training, resources, and nurturing to ensure your success. You are never left alone - a mentor, a boss, a buddy is always there to help you get what you need to succeed. The only way to fail is to literally not try at all!

    Compensation is market level, the 401k is good, and the benefits package is great. Any doctor or dentist will tell you that your plan is excellent!

    Work-life balance is a high-priority, but there are times you must grind out the 50/60/70 hour week. This is very team-dependent, but for every long and hard week there is the occasional long team lunch, early Friday, and and standard 40 hours.

    Senior management varies depending on person and department, but most people are very passionate about both ABC and developing their teams. There is a common saying that "harsh bosses do not last long at ABC" because of the culture of respect.

    You will be hard pressed to find better culture and values at any company. Respect and fairness is found at all levels. Truly, we do shape healthcare for our customers, and help get patients the medication they need at a price they can afford.

    In short - WORK HERE. ABC is an excellent company.

    Cons

    Compensation could always be a bit higher, 401k matching could be a little higher.

    There is no real cafeteria, but instead there are vendors that bring food... While most people love the Chikafila vendor, it would be nice to have a real cafeteria with some hot foods available for breakfast and lunch.

    Not every team has a great work-life balance, especially short-staffed IT teams. It would not hurt to identify overworked teams and hire another employee to share the load.

    In short - our problems are minor, and will likely be addressed due to very receptive management... again, WORK HERE.

    Advice to Management

    Management has been very engaged in finding out what associates think and feel. More importantly management has been very receptive in implementing the suggestions or solving complaints. Keep up the engagement and solutions... we notice and appreciate them!

    I worked at AmerisourceBergen full-time (More than 8 years)

    Pros

    New technology solutions, even if poorly implemented or managed, hit long before other companies get them. Largely unaffected be economic conditions.

    Cons

    Very clicky, if you're not in, prepare to get the worst jobs and be heavily criticized for everything while the habitual mistake makers get float by. You'll often be held responsible for others mistakes. Below average pay for industry despite how much senior management gloats at how great things are going. Sub par raises. Empty promises by leadership who's minds change with the wind.

    Advice to Management

    Stop throwing money away on projects that get scrapped.
