    Pros

    Good location
    Lots of room for improvements throughout the organization
    This company can be turned around with the right leadership.

    Cons

    This company does not value, appreciate or respect its employees
    This company does not embrace diversity
    Mgt will accuse you of poor performance and HR will act on termination without any written or demonstrated proof
    This company lags behind in vision, benefits, and employee morale.

    Advice to Management

    Respect employees
    Hold Management responsible for their performance and don't let them point the finger at their subordinates
    Hold leaders accountable for the way they treat employees. If everyone is complaining about a leader, then more than likely there is merit to those complaints.
    Respect the differences that people bring to the organization

    I have been working at AmerisourceBergen full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    I love the people I work with, it's a stable company with large earning potential and growth, great benefits package

    Cons

    The goals that Senior Management set for some of the business units this year were completely unattainable causing some to not get their bonuses. People rely on the bonus to put them somewhere closer to a salary they can survive on. This company does not reward it's employees. A 2% raise on an "Exceeds Expectations" review per year is not acceptable. People can't live on that and deal with inflation. I hear about a lot of people that are looking for either a second job or looking to leave the company completely.

    Advice to Management

    Give back to your employees. You have experienced HUGE earnings, you should put some of that back into the people that have gotten you there. Especially the lower level workers. The amount of turnover has got to be costing the company quite a bit in training new personnel.

    I have been working at AmerisourceBergen full-time (More than 8 years)

    Pros

    Benefits are excellent
    Some great people work there

    Cons

    People are promoted to their level of incompetence
    Company likes to talk about improving morale but does nothing else
    Employees are commodities that can be easily replaced
    The drug wholesaler business is very competitive with little margins
    Company is behind in technology and when they do implement new technology, it is done poorly.

    Advice to Management

    Morale is low. You need to dive into why and fix it!

    I have been working at AmerisourceBergen (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    Honestly – I don’t have any PROS comments.

    Cons

    I received a call from them, regarding an important process. After I got an initial call, and coordinated the next step interview, suddenly I received an email requesting to change the date, because the “person was extremely busy” that day. Then we re-scheduled another date/hour; that day I waited for the call…..never happened! I sent two emails, following up….after three weeks, no one responded. Definitively, NOT A BENCHMARK PRACTICE IN TALENT ACQUISITION.

    Advice to Management

    Shake-up the practice area, make sure you have the right talent in place - with the CARE to potential candidates.

    Note - I'm not a current or former employee

    Incentives to get while working

    Pros

    Generally smart people and many are patient access focused. Good industry reputation. Financially strong. Exposure to most of industry. Opportunity to work remotely.

    Cons

    No work life balance. Management has a passive aggressive borderline personality disorder. HR is a joke. Compensation harmonization - pretty much a middle finger to everyone. Zero growth opportunity unless you are a cultural favorite. Benefits are awful. A new slogan or pep talk every month and it is not working. Constant communication breakdown. IT understaffed, under budgeted and under prioritized.

    Advice to Management

    Been there, done that and even when heard they are not listening. Style over substance.

    Pros

    decent pay, good vacation time offered

    Cons

    everything is being consolidated down to 1 or 2 places. Many Customer Service and System Support positions have lost their jobs yet the call volume is only going up. the departments that are left have no idea what they are doing. Customers are realizing this as well

    Advice to Management

    I would hire more people. Call wait times for Customer service are ridiculous
