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

    Pros

    Pay was good, nice building. Central Industrial part of Ville Saint Laurent in Montreal.

    Cons

    Work atmosphere toxic with old employees trying to poison the new hires and succeeding most of the time. One old employee told she had been there of almost 15 years and hated it

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Survey what the older hires are telling the new hires and make a clean out of all the old guard, with negative attitudes.

    I worked at AmerisourceBergen full-time (more than an year)

    Pros

    Fortune 50 company doing lots of SAP work outsourced to IBM & TCS. A lot of talk about trying to be successful.

    Cons

    Not known for innovative development. The hired directors & VP's are not very experienced in people/conflict management. Their profit margins have dropped significantly after the Walgreens 25 Billion contract. Budgets are low for any reasonable innovation to happen. The offices in Valley Forge is more like a call center without any cubicles. There is absolutely no privacy. There are no architecture related thought process for integration of the various silos.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Having a real plan for cutting operating cost.

    Pros

    The pay was decent and commute

    Cons

    'At Will" Company (fire without warning) Management is incompetent You will get no more than 1-2 years with this company and they[ll find a reason to fire you without formal write ups of warnings.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Train your your employees. Another company who favors certain employees. Most of them don't know there jobs. No one in management cares about the employees only about themselves. Fire management and keep the employees!

    Pros

    The bonuses were nice when they were given fairly

    Cons

    Too much nepotism and favoritism. Also, professional development is non existent. Do not work here if you actually have a degree.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Do not become a manager if you do not have management skills.

    Current Employee - MHE in Sugar Land, TX (US)

    I have been working at AmerisourceBergen full-time (more than an year)

    Pros

    Fair benefits are ok, not the greatest. They will sometimes stick out for employees, only if you meet ethnicity criteria.

    Cons

    TERRIBLE COMPANY!!!!! I made a mistake to work there. company managers and compliance are predominately Caucasian and they will discriminate MHE personnel. Job offerings looks good on paper but the reality is that once on the job you will either become a enslaved and managers will find reasons to get rid of you if you don't perform.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Step out of your office and treat people with dignity and respect. Pay employees what they are worth and give MHE personnel a more dignified environment to work.

    I have been working at AmerisourceBergen full-time

    Pros

    the pros are that I have a job and a paycheck

    Cons

    Extremely negative environment, no positive feedback, no celebrations, barely any socialization or team spirit. Unprofessional behavior is accepted and even rewarded at times. Managers avoid responsibility of supporting their direct reports. It's every man for themselves type of atmosphere.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Hire the number of employees to support the business, this may help with the current low morale.

    Former Employee - Manager in Philadelphia, PA (US)
    Former Employee - Manager in Philadelphia, PA (US)

    I worked at AmerisourceBergen full-time (more than 10 years)

    Pros

    Initially management was engaged with the development of high performing associates. Dave Yost, Mike Dicandillo were instrumental in driving company excellence. A very good track record of growing earnings using fiscally sound business management principles. ABC remained competitive because of the extremely lean business methodologies, which were practiced company wide.

    Cons

    After much of the downsizing and personnel transitions, few talented people were left to fend for themselves while trying to execute a poor business plan. SAP implementation took too long and the cost over run hurt the company's financial stability. ABC had to reduce costs through eliminating key individuals who were making too much money. The dismissals cost ABC unknown amounts of talent and hard business knowledge.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    The ideas of senior management have not worked to produce a better ABC. Time to rid yourselves of the dead weight in senior management. I am saddened to see many good people were asked to leave while many marginal people stayed. I don't know that the company realized these individuals went to competing companies, which will challenge ABC for future business.

    I have been working at AmerisourceBergen part-time

    Pros

    A building with a parking deck is nice that you do no have to pay for like the city of Chicago parking

    Cons

    Hired to be in bound call center and that you were hired to only take calls for Walgen. Only and the pay was was for that it was inbound call center only ( not so), mandatory weekend( for training)'if a co worker ask you how you feel--- you better be Pro company---- or you are wrote up or even fired for letting a co worker know weekend work is hard on your family (especially when you are a single mom and it will cost you even if you can find a sitter.....The pay does not match the work you must do"......you are micro managed.. To the point of having to put a caller on hold.. To answer IM,High ,why is the call take longer than is on the list of time..we'll looking up credits, taking orders and seeing why the supervisor did not call them back ....But please keep in mind if you share with management team or anyone else( survey you are sent) you Better say the company is great!!!!

    I worked at AmerisourceBergen full-time (more than an year)

    Pros

    The health care packages if your single with no kids

    Cons

    Too many hours
    Not enough employees
    Change your hours of employment at will. Started at 7-3:30, then 6-2:30, then 5-1:30. but never ever just work 8 hrs. a light day is 10 hrs. mostly 12-14 hrs. Now the force mandatory weekends.
    They fire you based on another employee word.
    Basically no way to advance. They pride themselves on running "lean"
    Incentive pay makes everyone selfish and disrespectful
    All these 3 stars seem to be corporate, office or management.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Stop hiring not enough people then fire them for basically no reason. Offer better raises. pay them more. 12.26 for what we had to do is not enough. also how could i work just one day and make more than someone who has been there 5+ years? Your shipping and receiving teams keeps this company #1 pay them accordingly. Also 3% pay raises are nothing. Get rid of incentive pay which makes everyone sloppy and careless, which creates a unorganized and messy warehouse with poor inventory accountability, and give your warehouse employees at least a 3 dollar raise.
