    Pros

    Great work environment and job satisfaction as you know you are really helping someone. You learn the ins and outs of the pharmaceutical industry.

    Cons

    People are promote because of their connections not qualifications. Lots of micromanaging, no flexibility for employees to work from home.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Promote talent from within, people who have worked there should be given an interview. Candidates should not be presented because they know someone but based on their qualifications.

    Former Employee - Night Shift Order Filler in Valencia, CA (US)

    I worked at AmerisourceBergen part-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    Food from time to time and extra pay if you hit your numbers

    Cons

    Would change you schedule at the drop of a dime and you had to be ok with it. They gave horrible raises. You will work EVERY SUNDAY

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Stop treating the order fillers like crap. Get the moral of the people up if you want more productivity and pay people what there worth.

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

    Pros

    Huge opportunity for global expansion & great passionate people. Vision is fantastic!!!

    Cons

    Still operating like it's a small company. IT department is one of the worst I've ever seen and maturely level of program/project management and issue resolution ranks at the bottom of the companies I've worked for.

    No roles and responsibility clearly defined... 5 people doing one job and 1 person doing 5... I also was told that issues are not publicly discussed. As a Program Manager I don't know how to do my job if that is true!

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Sometimes it's OK to let Laggards go... we're a margin company and yet we don't have focus on efficiency or collaboration which results in cost negative results. We need to stop behaving like we're a garage company.

    Former Contractor - Contractor in Chesterbrook, PA (US)

    I worked at AmerisourceBergen as a contractor (less than a year)

    Pros

    Staff understands work-life balance, really decent human beings.
    Business has been growing substantially within the past year.

    Cons

    IBM Consultants take up a whole floor of one building and seem to add almost nothing to any discussion (nothing useful).
    Growing pains from incorporating Walgreens in early 2014 (grew business by 40%); systems are not yet fully integrated.
    Too much finger pointing on system vulnerabilities.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Pick a strategy, stick with it.
    Don't fall for the finger pointing games - get to the bottom of vulnerabilities and remediate.

    I have been working at AmerisourceBergen full-time (more than 8 years)

    Pros

    The environment remains a fairly good place to work. The benefits are good.

    Cons

    In the segment of the company I am, the area is so under staffed that one person is doing 4-5 people's jobs. There are people within the company that are more concerned with what everyone else is doing then that of their own job. The tools that the my segment of the company have to use are so antiquated that it is nearly impossible to get accurate financial data out to make decisions. There is very little support by the parent company.

    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!
