    Pros

    Benefits and able to add the experience to resume

    Cons

    Hard to move up without Knowing someone. They put managers in positions who have not had any experience handling large groups. Favoritism is a huge problem and since I been there in 2010 lash culture has changed for the worse and I'm taking a pay cut just to leave.

    Advice to Management

    Take more courses so you know how to handle situations

    Pros

    For this area the salary is decent and the benefits are great.

    Cons

    The atmosphere doesn't promote team work. Making the numbers will get you a bonus while quality gets you a certificate. If you haven't disciplined yourself to be on time, this is not the job for you. They no longer have a grace period although the travel time has increased. Lastly although they say it's not a call center position, it certainly feels like it with all the people they have piled into one building.

    Spend more time on the people in front of the customers instead of consulting companies and attorney's.

    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

    It's very satisfying to help patients in the field. They are motivated to learn and succeed.

    Cons

    They overhire in geographical regions. They mislead one about potential of work and number of drugs one can train on. This leads to very little opportunity to do assignments. It's challenging to stay competent on each drug. the calendar method of receiving an assignment is unfair to those that can't check calendar immediately, and to the drug company. Nurses that live further away from a patient may get the assignment over a nurse who lives just miles away.This cost pharm company more money in wages.

    Advice to Management

    Invest in your pharma nurse by having a better system for not over hiring in a region. Reach out first to those living in patient's immediate area. if the nurse isn't available, then post it on the daily calendar as available assignment. . If a nurse only gets an assignment infrequently, she's more prone to get a different job. Now you have a revolving door of employees.

    Pros

    Good company to work for if you find the right group. Company performs well despite market difficulties. free lunches

    Cons

    Cattiness in the group that i worked with. Literally some of the worst people ive ever met. Work place was not enojyable and layoffs were looming due to company performance

    Advice to Management

    its hard to justify layoffs when the company is still spending on capital projects. Even harder to justify layoffs when the company operates in the black for the last 5 years.

    Pros

    Consistent work, evaluations are fair and based on work Matrix not opinions.
    401K stock dropped to a 3% match and they are holding raises for the year- signs of economic uncertainty even though company is making tons of money.

    Cons

    you get locked into position and cant\'t really move up unless they make a new team or someone gets promoted or leaves - the work is the same over and over- its a call center mentality with some higher level jobs you get variety but when processing patient assistance applications and doing insurance benefit investigations its based on the numbers you do. Some teams are realistic in goals others push the limits so goals are close to or are unobtainable.

    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.
