    Pros

    If you are a kiss up or affiliated with a supplier, you are golden

    Cons

    I became disabled after 11 years at ABC and they couldn't dump me fast enough.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Stop trying to be Bergen #2. You are draining company.

    I worked at AmerisourceBergen full-time

    Pros

    Benefits and cafeteria, friendly associates.

    Cons

    Terrrible management ethics, just terrible management. Abusive to employees psychologically and emotionally. BAD communications. Management has closed thought processes and the onboarding training does not represent the mentality of management. Very seductive and dishonest.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Give it up and move on. They are incompetent, disloyal to employees and typical corporate manipulators. If anyone shows promise or a different aspect of thought, they fire them. Time to fire the management staff and get management that is constructive and not destructive to the workforce. It takes approximately three years to profit from an employee. How does this company leave the problem in charge and just keep paying for the turnover?

    I worked at AmerisourceBergen full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    This is a good company especially for young adults as there is lots of training provided, and a career track that can lead one to management.

    Cons

    Sort of out of touch policies.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Everything is not simply black and white -- some differences are healthy. While rules are important, it is also good to have some flexibility to allow for innovation. It is important that certain protocols are met, but a good idea can go a long, long way. This also engages the associates to invest mrs of themselves into their work and to the company.

    I have been working at AmerisourceBergen full-time for more than 5 years

    Pros

    Good co-workers, benefits and above average working conditons.

    Cons

    Top heavy mgmt, old guard, old school thinking, not incredibly tech savy.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Request and implement recommendations from associates rather then paying a 3rd party to find gaps. Increase work life balance. Allow more opportunites from working from home from tech. Open full access to the web without filters. Embrace innovation. Embrace thinking outside the box. Continue to work on creating an environment that is innovative and helps provide associates with the opportunity to excel and in turn provide our customers with the best service possible.

    Pros

    decent pay, good vacation time offered

    Cons

    everything is being consolidated down to 1 or 2 places. Many Customer Service and System Support positions have lost their jobs yet the call volume is only going up. the departments that are left have no idea what they are doing. Customers are realizing this as well

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    I would hire more people. Call wait times for Customer service are ridiculous

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

    Pros

    Generally smart people and many are patient access focused. Good industry reputation. Financially strong. Exposure to most of industry. Opportunity to work remotely.

    Cons

    No work life balance. Management has a passive aggressive borderline personality disorder. HR is a joke. Compensation harmonization - pretty much a middle finger to everyone. Zero growth opportunity unless you are a cultural favorite. Benefits are awful. A new slogan or pep talk every month and it is not working. Constant communication breakdown. IT understaffed, under budgeted and under prioritized.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Been there, done that and even when heard they are not listening. Style over substance.
