Horrible...worked 6-7 days a week

blister packaging operator (Former Employee)
Groveport, OH (US)

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

ProsHealth insurance, benefits....that is all I can say good about the company

ConsStarted at 12.00 and 3 years later was only making 13.30 and I was a blister packaging operator...they paid new people more...also they are very chauvanistic and show a lot of favoritism...management was horrible...upper management only spoke to certain people

– I'm optimistic about the outlook for this company

Very disappointed is saying it nicely.

Operations Supervisor (Former Employee)
Roanoke, TX (US)

I worked at AmerisourceBergen full-time for less than a year

ProsGood pay and benefits. There are some tenured employees there that do show a commitment to helping others and the company.

ConsToo many hours worked. Not enough skilled employees. If in management, you work on your days off at home with a company provided laptop. Not a team environment. Key positions don't require a degree, which in turn place unskilled and untrained individuals in those key positions. Turnaround is very high.

Advice to Senior ManagementTrain your employees better. Be more involved with your employees. Walk around the facility and get to know your employees to help with their concerns and issues.

Terrible company that might run itself into the ground

Warehouse Associate II (Current Employee)
Roanoke, TX (US)

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

ProsIncentives to get while working

ConsExtremely low pay raises extremely strict attendance policies, long hours, terrible work environment. The company gains the business of biggest pharmaceutical store in the nation make over 400 million last yr and they decide a 500 dollar bonus is adequate not to mention you actually have to qualify for oh and now I get penalized 15 mins for being late 1 minute yea thats great.

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

Bait and Switch

IT PM (Current Employee)
Chesterbrook, PA (US)

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

ProsMidlevel IT & Developers great to work with

ConsWorst executive Mgmt ever - not what you know its who you kiss - HR doesn't protect the rank & file

Advice to Senior ManagementTake a hard look inside at mgmt nepotism, degrading mgmt comments and how about doing a morale survey !

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

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

The worst CEO to this day!

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

I have been working at AmerisourceBergen full-time

ProsThis used to be a great company with a great history.

ConsWe are no longer a great company. This new CEO has no clue as to the value of human resource. Employees, to him, are an expense. I wonder if he can do all our jobs on his own because he certainly cannot do his. He cannot inspire a drowning man to take a breath of air. Our compensation package is on the floor. We are severely underpaid and our benefits are almost non existent.

Advice to Senior ManagementEmployees are no an expense. But then again, incompetent managers do not realize that.

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

Very dysfunctional work environment.

Anonymous Employee (Current Employee)

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

ProsBenefits are excellent
Some great people work there

ConsPeople are promoted to their level of incompetence
Company likes to talk about improving morale but does nothing else
Employees are commodities that can be easily replaced
The drug wholesaler business is very competitive with little margins
Company is behind in technology and when they do implement new technology, it is done poorly.

Advice to Senior ManagementMorale is low. You need to dive into why and fix it!

No, I would not recommend this company to a friend

Salaries way below industry standards

Anonymous Employee (Current Employee)
Frisco, TX (US)

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

ProsI love the people I work with, it's a stable company with large earning potential and growth, great benefits package

ConsThe goals that Senior Management set for some of the business units this year were completely unattainable causing some to not get their bonuses. People rely on the bonus to put them somewhere closer to a salary they can survive on. This company does not reward it's employees. A 2% raise on an "Exceeds Expectations" review per year is not acceptable. People can't live on that and deal with inflation. I hear about a lot of people that are looking for either a second job or looking to leave the company completely.

Advice to Senior ManagementGive back to your employees. You have experienced HUGE earnings, you should put some of that back into the people that have gotten you there. Especially the lower level workers. The amount of turnover has got to be costing the company quite a bit in training new personnel.

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