    Pros

    incentive pay, good insurance

    Cons

    Way too much overtime, we need help but no advertising or job fairs to get people in the door. Pay needs to be better for how hard we work.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Hire more people!

    I have been working at AmerisourceBergen part-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    Lenient on hours if part time. It is incentives based so you're able able to have somewhat of a say so in how much you get paid

    Cons

    The cons would be that full time doesn't have a specific stop time. You leave when the work is done. Other than
     That things are pretty great

    I worked at AmerisourceBergen

    Pros

    Good work life balance, guaranteed to be done at 4pm everyday and not have to take your work home with you. Also, 20 days off in first year. If you are a yes man, this is the place for you!

    Cons

    There are absolutely no career advancement opportunities unless it is a in role promotion i.e buyer 1, 2 and if you are promoted, it is kept on the low down. The culture and technology is embarrassing to the point that EVERY report is still printed and you will have to sacrifice your first born to have anything emailed or done via the internet. If you want to further your career or learn anything besides being told what to do, please look elsewhere.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    There is no HR, no view to the company outside of the NRC except what your director decides to tell you. Which in most cases, is nothing. No exit interviews and no chance of raising any concerns past the VP.

    My experience was coming from a detailed, organized company to an entirely different set of standards.

    I have been working at AmerisourceBergen

    Pros

    I liked it that the supervisors didnt micromanage and there were some genuinely unique and friendly, funny people there.

    Cons

    There was little, if any direction from Ditrectors, Project managers. It seemed like there was a lot of infancy in this company and anyone coming in expecting a world class business technique or model may find there is a lot lacking,.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Be organized in creating a model of expectations while creating projects. Take time to get to know the strengths of the people who are working for you. Don't engage in sophomoric talk during meetings and act less like you are in high school. I actually witnessed Directors who asked peers within a group how other members of the group were working out and then used those conversations as a way to determine what was being accomplished by the employee, like I said very "High School' behaviors in place and they need to end that practice.

    I worked at AmerisourceBergen

    Pros

    Plenty of jobs to go around.

    Cons

    Culture, culture, culture. The culture is not one of "excellence", but more along the lines of "well, somebody's gotta do this job", which aligns perfectly to the company's business model. C-level employees are not in touch with their workers. Fortune 25 company does not have a cafeteria for employees, or work-out facilities. Very low-margin attitude that matches its low-margin business model. Zero enthusiasm or passion. Leadership and imagination is lacking at President and VP levels.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Change HQ office to Center City, Philadelphia, instead of the ghetto of Conshohocken. Increase pay to at least the industry-average. Recruit smarter people at lower levels.

    I worked at AmerisourceBergen full-time (less than a year)

    Pros

    The company values there associates and does a lot to engage the diverse cultures they have within the building. Plan on getting feed at least 3 times a month. You learn to wear lots of hats.

    Cons

    The systems fails often whether on the corporate level or internal level. Having said that expect to work 15-18 hr days on the regular. Family and quality of life suffers the most!

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    The bonus program is good for both hourly and salary associates. Personal growth is limited due to being too involved the the day to day operation.

    Former Employee - Customer Care Representative in Mansfield, MA (US)
    Former Employee - Customer Care Representative in Mansfield, MA (US)

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

    Pros

    I'm not sure if it was my specific location or if it was company wide, but it is hard to find any pros to working here. If I had to pick one positive, it would be the occasional give aways they had in the warehouse. Aside from that, not much else can be said.

    Cons

    The pay was subpar. The overall morale was the worst I have ever experienced in any environment. Supervisors were never helpful and never had your best interest. Some supervisors did school work in their office, while the rest of us worked hard to get the job done. Some employees got away with being on personal calls all day while others had to pick up their slack by taking 100+ calls a day.

    If you spoke up about anything mistreatment or wrongdoing, you were accused of causing a hostile environment and creating tension in the workplace.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Start appreciating the great employees you have! This includes compensating them properly, making them feel as though they are part of a great team and rewarding those who go above and beyond. Most importantly, you need to LISTEN to what employees are saying.
