    Former Employee - Customer Care Manager

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

    Pros

    Attractive enviornment; good benefits; tools provided to be successful in job. The company is doing very well financially. Senior Management consist of forward thinkers making the companies future prosperous.

    Cons

    Non-competitive pay; no career track; good old boy system.

    It is very difficult to get promoted across business units. The problem with that is there is no career path within any of the business units so in essence, the likeihood of a person not tied into the good old boy system is slim to none.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Develop career paths and promote people from within. Benmark salaries annually. Increase average salary increase percentage for meets and above associates to at least keep par with inflation. Offer bonus at all level of management.

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

    Pros

    Serves as great professional experience.

    Cons

    Fast paced, focus is not you but the patients. This is regardless to weather conditions also. There is also a lack of consideration of employees being with their family during the holidays.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Be more organized and considerate of the individuals that are constantly taking care of the patients and what they need.

    Working from home is a plus, bonuses, weekends off

    Pros

    The pay is competitive and there is a friendly atmosphere. The expectations are clearly made available and your career progress is carefully tracked.

    Cons

    The vertical growth is limited in some areas. In some divisions people are hired for who they know not what they know.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Try to look at the the best fit for a particular job and not who know somebody.

    Pros

    Good health benefits, paid vacation, and 401K.

    Cons

    Poor leadership, poor organization. Too many executives uptop that you can't even keep track of who they are or how they even contribute to the company. No bonuses for the people that actually do the work and no respect for hard working employees.

    Pros

    Loved all my co-workers from warehouse to customer service. Great benefits, great team

    Cons

    Corporate only cares about how fast and how much money they can make. Closed all the customer service centers except one and hired all new people that do not know what they are doing Customers dropping like flies due to inept CCRs. Wont be long before customer service goes overseas like the other major companies. Corporate knew that this was coming yet still hired new CCRs to fill the gap while they also hired new people to take over our jobs.

    Former Employee - Anonymous Employee

    I worked at AmerisourceBergen for more than 10 years

    Pros

    The company is financially stable in an unstable economy.

    Cons

    Compensation is not competitive with the market. Employees are underpaid; annual increases are nominal even for superior rated employees. The "Good Old Boy" network is alive and well. Most employment is job vs. career oriented; little to no room for advancement.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Recognize excellence and reward it. Create career paths for your employes to ensure talent retention.

    Pros

    Successful company with growth opportunity for certain positions. Can be long hours. Good benefits. Expectations of being connected 24/7 with technology.

    Stressful environment, many unhappy associates, lack of communication and training. Growth opportunities are decided before they are even posted. Creates an environment of distrust and cynicism.

    Be more open and less secretive. Work on recognition and appreciation for the hard work they receive.

    Summer internship

    Current Employee - Strategic Planning  in  Chesterbrook, PA (US)
    Current Employee - Strategic Planning in Chesterbrook, PA (US)

    I have been working at AmerisourceBergen as an intern for less than a year

    Pros

    The people who work there were great, I had a lot of responsibilities and the work I did actually made a difference within my division

    Cons

    If you are looking for full time after having an internship there, you will be waiting until very close to when you can start working upon graduation. They hire just in time so do not hire much more than 2 months out of a start date.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Try to determine jobs that could be created from the work done by interns and potentially offer them jobs at the end of the summer if you feel like they did good work.
