    Pros

    Health benefits were pretty good.

    Cons

    As a developer, there is no way you will EVER do new development. You would end up being a maintenance monkey while all development is farmed out to contract houses.

    Advice to Management

    Let your software developers develop. They know the business from the inside.

    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 Management

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

    Pros

    Ression Proof Company. Great facilities. Great associates. Focused company Vision and Mission. Excellent communication from CEO, CFO, & COO. Executive management does an outstanding job of keeping employess well informed and engaged in strategic plans.

    Cons

    Limited growth opportunities for minorities (blacks, indians, hispanics, etc.) White women are well positioned, but not any other minority groups.

    Advice to Management

    Take action on your Diversity Video. Provide competent minorities with a growth plan.

    Pros

    Amazing benefits (health, employee stock program). I think it is a good starting place for college grads to learn the business.

    Cons

    There are several different sub divisions of the company, and management styles tend to vary within each division. I would recommend ASD Healthcare or ICS. I would never recommend US Bioservices because of high turn around and poor management.

    Advice to Management

    Management is some divisions are often times very unsympathetic to the needs of the workers.

    Pros

    Hours are basically M-F 8 to 5. They give you money if they get a favorable sales. They have good dinners and suprise pizza lunches in the warehouse.

    Cons

    No retirement, you need to get 401 k and save for your own. Benefits is mediocre and it would be nice if they celebrate more holidays, no christmas parties or anything.
    Company changing and many departments are merged or eliminated all together

    Advice to Management

    None except quit taking such a high paycheck and work on keeping everyone employed, finding more opportunities to promote within.

    Pros

    ABC plays a critical role in maintaining the lowest possible healthcare costs by distributing pharmaceuticals and related products in the most efficient manner possible. The people are incredibly dedicated to this mission.

    Cons

    A new CEO is bringing in the same team that resulted in Bergen being sold to Amerisource back in 2001 at a time when Bergen was much larger. An aggressive international expansion plan will put the core distribution businesses at risk, resulting in lower than anticipated revenues.

    Advice to Management

    Stick to your knitting.

    I worked at AmerisourceBergen full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Hundreds of locations. Awesome and varied benefits. Good pay. Great connections. Many opportunities. Valuable stock.

    Cons

    Still experiencing merger/legacy issues from about 10 years ago. Very large company that can be stifling for some with it's strict approach to many issues. Management style can be uptight.

    Advice to Management

    Allow for more work flexibility options.

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

    Pros

    Most of the people are nice. I have my own desk in a cubicle. Also, helping people in need of major pharmaceutical medication for diseases like MS, and cancer.

    Cons

    All the patient's hang up the phone when they see the caller id come up as a 1-800 #. Most of everyone in the building piles their work onto the PCC. If there is a question of whether it is your responsibility or if someone is pawning their work on you. This company plays favorites and gives no chance of explanation when accused by other employees of things that did not happen. All around, a vague answer has left you still wondering whether you did what you were supposed to or if you're going to get an email sometime down the road stating you are subject to corrective action because someone complained on you in a passive aggressive way and you will never know who did it or what was said.

    Advice to Management

    Collaborate more with the team on a daily basis to get an overview of what goes on in the department. I would definitely suggest that if you are a manager and your friend is needing a job, do not put them in the same department with the friend as the lead. They will do whatever they want (including not work) and nothing will happen to them.
