    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

    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

    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
