The Talent Acquisition Process! - A great AREA of Opportunity and Continuous Improvement

Senior Leader (Current Employee)
New York, NY (US)

I have been working at AmerisourceBergen for more than 10 years

ProsHonestly – I don’t have any PROS comments.

ConsI received a call from them, regarding an important process. After I got an initial call, and coordinated the next step interview, suddenly I received an email requesting to change the date, because the “person was extremely busy” that day. Then we re-scheduled another date/hour; that day I waited for the call…..never happened! I sent two emails, following up….after three weeks, no one responded. Definitively, NOT A BENCHMARK PRACTICE IN TALENT ACQUISITION.

Advice to Senior ManagementShake-up the practice area, make sure you have the right talent in place - with the CARE to potential candidates.

Note - I'm not a current or former employee

No, I would not recommend this company to a friend

Good people overall to work with and benefits good.

Inventory Clerk (Former Employee)
Thorofare, NJ (US)

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

ProsGood benefits and decent pay.

ConsManagement not all on the same page. Manager not interested at all in his job and favored people that did the same. Unfortunate because could have been a great workplace.I was a victim of warehouse closing.

Advice to Senior ManagementGet rid of the bad employees who have no interest in improving the work culture and employee morale.

No, I would not recommend this company to a friend – I'm not optimistic about the outlook for this company

Very corporate environment, good benefits, mediocre salary

Account Manager Health Systems (Former Employee)

I worked at AmerisourceBergen full-time for more than 5 years

Prosstable, established, profitable, Fortune 100 company. Well respected company in the industry. Advancement opportunity available for those that fit company mold, drink the Kool-Aid. Good benefits package.

ConsToo many politics overall, people sometimes advance on favoritism, not merit. Big, corporate machine, easy to get lost in the shuffle.

Advice to Senior ManagementPractice what you preach, be more transparent. Reward people by merit, not by those who "kiss up". Too many chiefs in this company,not enough Indians.

Great company and culture!

Anonymous Employee (Current Employee)
Valley Forge, PA (US)

I have been working at AmerisourceBergen full-time for more than 10 years

ProsThe people here are some of the best I've worked with throughout my career. The culture embraces innovation and have forged strong relationships with our external customers.

ConsEven with the acquisition of WorldCourier, we are still primarily a US focused company. I look forward to expanding our services and customer base in the global market place.

Advice to Senior ManagementContinue to reward innovation and prudent risk taking.

an average work place. not bad, not awesome.

Software Engineer (Current Employee)
Valley Forge, PA (US)

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

ProsGood location.
Work hours are convenient and therefore there is good work life balance.
pay perks are usually good although not the best.
Management is understanding, so work from home is almost always allowed when requested.
work is not pressurized. kinda relaxed work atmosphere.
co workers are friendly and nice to talk, although there is no one here you can call a 'genius', every one is knowledgeable.

ConsNot too many politics but there is blame game usually.
If working in software wing, its a horrible place as most of their technology is proprietary. so once you are out of this job, the experience you attain is worthless. or, you have to stick to them for the rest of your life(this works well for a middle aged guy who wants to settle down in life, not someone in the mid career stage)
there is dependency in the company. if the key person for a specific project is not in the office, most of your stuff might be pending till he/she comes back.
cafe downstairs is okay, only for a quick snack or atmost breakfast stuff can be purchased. lunch is really bad.

Advice to Senior ManagementMost important thing to do is to find the right person for the right position. There are avenues for consultants and full time personnel, but deciding who should be employed under what type is something the managers need to think deeper. Usually consultants are not interested in working on a proprietary material as it wont help them in their career and is more or less a waste of time.
