Pros

I am no longer at this company (left last year). However, at the time my department offered flexibility in work schedules. I also liked that employees are given many opportunities to pursue professional development through education reimbursement program, on-the-job training and in-house resources.

Cons

The downsides mainly revolved around poor management. In the area I worked in (the Lash/Xcenda subsidiary -- a smaller company under the AmerisourceBergen umbrella), there were managers who had been there since the company was much smaller. These managers were unwilling to let go of 'what we always do'.

There was a big problem with managers hiring personal friends, giving friends the best projects and professional education opportunities (when space was limited), and then promoting those friends to higher positions with better pay over staff with more related experience and higher performance. HR and Sr Management did little address employees' concerns over promotion practices, despite repeated complaints. On some teams, those promoted weren't capable of doing their new job efficiently and the work fell on those who were passed over (leading to a team of disgruntled and unmotivated employees).

Advice to Management

Implement processes to assure the promotion processes are fair to assure you don't lose good people. Award people based on their performance. Be willing to hear new/innovative ideas from those in non-management positions.

    Disapproves of CEO

    Pros

    The comraderie between sales associates was exceptional. Consultative sales in the healthcare industry was challenging and fun.

    Cons

    Sales associates were not rewarded based on their true accomplishments. There was much prejudice within the sales management team. There was a system for sales associated to review their standings; however, this was taken away when some of the top performers were not being rewarded accordingly. Lies are prevalent within management.

    Advice to Management

    Evaluate sales management's procedures for reviewing others amd the validity of them.

    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.
