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

    Pros

    Good pay, benefits, PTO. Amazing co-workers. Ability to work from home as needed. Inter departmental cooperation to accomplish goals and ensure client satisfaction. The employees are the reason for success.

    Cons

    If you want to work for a company that takes employees who have dedicated the better part of a decade or more of their life to the "mission" only to be let go for corporate cost cutting (i.e. biased management that feels threatened), then this is the place for you. Executive management oblivious and likes it that way. Local management suffers serious "Big Fish - Little Pond" syndrome and treat the employees who are actually cognizant of the customer base like outcasts. Large projects that drastically affect the client base in a negative manner are put in place without engaging the employees who actually know how and even if the project would be feasible to begin with. Then, said employees are blamed for the massive failure while the management team who initiated it with no input from the employees are rewarded for trying. I will hand it to local management for towing the corporate BS line about "These moves in personnel changes are a good thing that will benefit us all and allow for a more positive outcomes for our clients...." blah, blah, blah. They have "all-hands" meetings when a new round of firings occur and do a great job at pumping the negative balloon created full of hot-air in an tempt to make everything all warm and fuzzy. Extremely disingenuous and insulting to the hardworking folks who are working to ensure management continues to draw a paycheck. New employees fall for it, but the veterans know.....it's only a matter of time before they are next.

    Advice to Management

    Get over yourselves.

    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.

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

    Pros

    The benefit package included 20 PTO days and 7 holidays, the insurance options (health, eye, vision) were good, there is good tuition reimbursement and while the 401K match was better, it is still even with many other companies. Kitchen stocked with coffee, tea, soda (not much diet), paper plates/bowl, & plastic silverware. Pay meeting regional average although entry level is low.

    Cons

    Hourly staff knocked for each late occurrence, even one minute. Made to work for free until 7 minutes after shift, then would be paid for 15 minute increment. Often staff not paid for 15 to 30 minutes of overtime each week due to 1 to 6 minutes each day. PA Wage & Labor might disagree with OT based on 8 hours and not 40. High biased against anyone disagreeing with the corporate clone model; yes people highly wanted. Don't outshine your boss or they become threatened.

    Advice to Management

    When you surround yourself with talented people, listen to them. Especially when they have more experience and education. Also if you are a younger manager, try not to discriminate against baby boomers. Learn more about diversity. And MBAs may be able to count beans, but usually don't understand people who are the human capital of the company.

    Pros

    Direct management is very involved in employee growth, development, and training
    Good benefits i.e. health insurance, 401K, paid time off, flexible spending account

    Cons

    Although they might advertise that pay raises are performance based, it does not seem to be the case (will receive the same % raise as someone solely because of identical job title, rather than looking at performance, so not much incentive)
    Corporate culture and environment can be cold

    Advice to Management

    Encourage and incentivize performance and innovation by actually following through with performance based salary increase, or not advertise that as being the case i.e. be honest
    More opportunities for growth

    Pros

    Flexible work environment. Great coworkers. Very good benefits. PTO is good and pay is very competitive. Associates Assistance Fund to help co-workers that have financial problems or are affected due to weather related events.

    Cons

    Company match needs to be better. It's been downgraded this year. Company match program pushes United Way rather then provided a list non profits an associate can choose. Not a fan. In IT there isn't a lot room to grow. Not a lot of training for new functionality or opportunities to do so. Many managers/directors are in name only. Meaning they like the title but don't want to manage their teams. Many have not managed others before and it shows. Yearly reviews aren't constructive nor or are they timely. Our 2017 performance goals that started on October 1st 2016 (beginning of fiscal year) have not been delivered by our management team as today's date. That equates to 7 months 24 days without performance goals. No indication on when they will be delivered. No accountability held again against management for this issue. Which is hard because last year we had a head count reduction for poor performers. So to the associates it comes across as double talk, do as I say not as do.

    Advice to Management

    Advice to SENIOR management, come down and have coffee corner meetings with small groups and get feedback. Bypass middle management and ask the front line how were doing. Focus on continuous improvement, team building, and transparency.

    Pros

    Health care benefits, 401k match, vacation time, incentive, night shift premium, steady job, easy work, great for anyone who loves being physically active or walking a lot.

    Cons

    HIGHLY political warehouse, harmful work place drama, no work/life balance, difficult to use the vacation time you're given, management follows their own personal agenda, growth opportunities mean gaining additional training but not moving up within the company, sexual harassment, down-talking, and targeting from management are the norm despite HR reports, 8 hr shifts are very unlikely, low morale, very us v. them environment. High turnover rates.

    Advice to Management

    With the exception of the shipping supervisor, a full change in night management would probably the best solution for everyone, truly.
    Want your employees to respect you? Perhaps show everyone that you do care for the words they have to say, give them credit where it's due instead of to yourselves, and try to show real communication skills with them in general. Stop advancing your unskilled brown-nosing employees for your own agenda when you have many more talented, driven, and willing employees that better suit the company's ideals and practices. It seems like anyone that's remained here has only done so because it pays the bills.
