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

    Pros

    Coworkers are friendly.
    They pay in USD.

    Cons

    Worst management that could possibly exist.

    HR will lie to you and say that pay is competitive, it's not.

    Micromanagement. Middle management is too thick. There are as many workers as there are managers except managers don't do any of the true work; they just tell the employees to do the work that they already know to be doing.

    Fat middle management segments create roles where no roles need to be, redundant roles, meanwhile not enough workers to actually do the work.

    If you don't drink the corporate kool-aid then you will be reprimanded for not caring enough about other departments of the company, even if they don't pertain to your department.

    Management will not give warnings. I have been a faithful employee and slipped up once. And for the next two weeks I had evidence trumped up against me that was fabricated, and had my job threatened daily.

    They will threaten your job out of the blue as a motivational technique.

    Work environment created by management is unhealthy and hostile.

    Conflicting priorities given by the tens of thousands of different "bosses" that you have will inevitably cause you to forsake one priority for another, and then you will be yelled at by the managers who's requests you put on hold for the other manager.

    Complaining culture from tenured employees fosters in this pseudo-busyness whereby employees can fake being busy and shirk their workload onto new employees.

    Give preferential treatment to minorities and women because of PC culture/fear of backlash. Management eats up the concerns of the aforementioned groups with a spoon.

    Advice to Management

    When you threaten someone's job regularly over one mistake, a mistake that you did not warn anyone about, it does not make the employee want to work harder for you. It makes the employee apply to other opportunities. Perhaps this is why turnover is very high in certain departments with poor managers..

    Pros

    The people I work with/ my peers are great. Other than that there are no real pros to working here.

    Cons

    Everything else about this place is a con. Human Resources is a mess, and the managers in the business have no skills training. Lots of face time and very political

    Advice to Management

    Start over with HR, get management training for Supervisors and listen to the actual working employee

    I have been working at AmerisourceBergen full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    A variety of benefits to choose from.
    It is large corporation.

    Cons

    No work life balance.
    Over the last few years, they continue to lay people off and downsize departments or not hire additional personnel, yet increasing the amount of workloads of the people who are still with the company.
    Due to this, working unpaid overtime (as most people are paid salaries) and weekends has become mandatory to meet project deadlines set by management.
    Along with this mindset, they have shown that they do not have loyalty to their employees and will lay them off to be a scapegoat or help their bottom line.
    Because of this, the employees that have not left are stressed and are becoming burnt out.

    Advice to Management

    Hire additional staff.
    Show that you value your employees.

    Pros

    Surrounded by people that don't speak English if you don't like talking

    Cons

    Unresponsive management, aggressive coworkers, and huge bias against non-Nepali workers.
    ATTENTION: They like to tell you how much they like to promote from within; the career "opportunities" are a bait and trap scheme.

    Advice to Management

    Learn to listen

    Pros

    The many great people that I am honored to work with.

    Cons

    Ask all the great people canned because senior management had to pay for a new corp. office. Seeing 5 members of the senior staff see their company stock and then the value plummeted. Sales management is out to meet quotas regardless of what the customers need. Wells Fargo anyone!

    Advice to Management

    Don't listen to the yes men, listen to the customers

    Pros

    Heh. Its a paycheck. If you are in need of a job, this is a bridge until you find a new one AT BEST.

    Cons

    Extremely unprofessional co-workers, ambivalent and willfully ignorant management, long hours, low pay, bottom dollar everything. If you are considering a job here...look at the faces of the people in the warehouse. This can be you. There are better places to work.

    Advice to Management

    I am sure Management would like to work somewhere also.

    Great employees. Pay needs tone better

    HR, is not neutral (side with mngmnt). Retaliation witching leadership in IT(ICS).

    Advice to Management

    Let go of biased, unfair, uneducated, non-degreed leadership. VPs really need to be recycled. To manypeopleonthe right bus but in the wrong seat. Satisfaction surveys needtobeadministeredfirployees to rate their leadership and make apart of the merrit increase.
