    I have been working at AmerisourceBergen full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    This company pays the best for this type of work in this area.

    Cons

    You will have to be buddy-buddy with mgmt. to move up.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Let the employees work stand for itself as opposed to people who you hang out with outside of work.

    I have been working at AmerisourceBergen full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    Fair benefits are ok, not the greatest. They will sometimes stick out for employees, only if you meet ethnicity criteria.

    Cons

    TERRIBLE COMPANY!!!!! I made a mistake to work there. company managers and compliance are predominately Caucasian and they will discriminate MHE personnel. Job offerings looks good on paper but the reality is that once on the job you will either become a enslaved and managers will find reasons to get rid of you if you don't perform.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Step out of your office and treat people with dignity and respect. Pay employees what they are worth and give MHE personnel a more dignified environment to work.

    Pros

    The bonuses were nice when they were given fairly

    Cons

    Too much nepotism and favoritism. Also, professional development is non existent. Do not work here if you actually have a degree.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Do not become a manager if you do not have management skills.

    I worked at AmerisourceBergen as an intern for less than a year

    Pros

    Employees are great and with the huge Walgreens contract there is a lot of opportunity here!

    Cons

    I was new to the SAP software so it took me a little while to get comfortable.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Upper management is fantastic! Communicates with all levels of employees all throughout the country so everyone knows what is going on around them.

    I worked at AmerisourceBergen full-time for more than 8 years

    Pros

    ABC is a large corporation with many resources for development and advancement. You can succeed but you have to work extra hard to be recognized for your efforts - that's the pitfall of working in a large organization. Benefits are excellent.

    Cons

    No work life balance and pay is average for the market place. The focus is 1st in profit, 2nd on customer and 3rd on employee.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Invest in IT systems that will enhance the employee and customer experience

    Pros

    Love the location in suburban Frisco, love the gym located in the office park, love the healthcare benefits and PTO is generous. Like the people I work with.

    Cons

    Depending on your business unit; but mine in particular is very client driven, as opposed to following our processes and systems. It is non-stop, urgent demands from clients.

    Pros

    Office culture, benefits, and line of work.

    Cons

    Can't assist everyone, only patients who have qualified chronic illnesses.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Consider discussing growth opportunities within the company or staffing agencies.

    I have been working at AmerisourceBergen full-time for less than a year

    Pros

    Pay was good, nice building. Central Industrial part of Ville Saint Laurent in Montreal.

    Cons

    Work atmosphere toxic with old employees trying to poison the new hires and succeeding most of the time. One old employee told she had been there of almost 15 years and hated it

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Survey what the older hires are telling the new hires and make a clean out of all the old guard, with negative attitudes.

    I have been working at AmerisourceBergen full-time

    Pros

    the pros are that I have a job and a paycheck

    Cons

    Extremely negative environment, no positive feedback, no celebrations, barely any socialization or team spirit. Unprofessional behavior is accepted and even rewarded at times. Managers avoid responsibility of supporting their direct reports. It's every man for themselves type of atmosphere.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Hire the number of employees to support the business, this may help with the current low morale.

    Former Employee - Manager  in  Philadelphia, PA (US)
    Former Employee - Manager in Philadelphia, PA (US)

    I worked at AmerisourceBergen full-time for more than 10 years

    Pros

    Initially management was engaged with the development of high performing associates. Dave Yost, Mike Dicandillo were instrumental in driving company excellence. A very good track record of growing earnings using fiscally sound business management principles. ABC remained competitive because of the extremely lean business methodologies, which were practiced company wide.

    Cons

    After much of the downsizing and personnel transitions, few talented people were left to fend for themselves while trying to execute a poor business plan. SAP implementation took too long and the cost over run hurt the company's financial stability. ABC had to reduce costs through eliminating key individuals who were making too much money. The dismissals cost ABC unknown amounts of talent and hard business knowledge.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    The ideas of senior management have not worked to produce a better ABC. Time to rid yourselves of the dead weight in senior management. I am saddened to see many good people were asked to leave while many marginal people stayed. I don't know that the company realized these individuals went to competing companies, which will challenge ABC for future business.
