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

    Pros

    I had a great boss who knew what she was going and didnt micromanage. The peers were good, and I was able to work from home so had a lot of flexibility

    Cons

    Senior Management had no idea what they were doing. The company sold its customers to a competitor and sold out all of its employees

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

    Pros

    benefits: RRSP, insurance, 3 weeks vacations, 5 sick days, most holidays off

    Cons

    everybody works next to each other without interacting, the atmosphere is sucking the life out of good people. Poor management. no growing opportunity, your boss won't let you leave internally until you have trained your replacement. job has nothing to do with the job I applied on and was explain during the hiring process. My manager told me they hire nurse only to flash you title to client saying they have nurse on staff but the job is basically being a admin, reimbursement agent in a call center.No critical thinking or clinical judgement needed. There is a lot of non sense to please client's needs. if you are looking for a job not challenging and rest for your brain this is it.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Evaluate your managers, some of them are really bad leaders, cutting corners, micromanaging on trivial issues (like having a clean inbox) and not leading when needed.

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

    Pros

    Fair wages, large organization with many business units, good paid time-off policy, employer RRSP contributions.

    Cons

    If you are looking to learn new skills and develop your career, this is not the place to do it. Untrained management is biased and does not offer equal opportunities to all qualified candidates. Company culture is motivated by negative reinforcement, and "speak-up" policy is a joke.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Respect your employees.

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

    Pros

    The bar is set very low. You don't need to be competent to work here. As long as you keep your mouth shut and do the minimum to get by you'll likely have a job for life.

    Cons

    You'll get bored and it will kill your career. You'll be surrounded by tons of corporate toadies. DO NOT go here if you are in any sort of technical field. This is NOT a tech company. They are firmly rooted in old school corporate culture.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Take a second look at all the kingdom building within your organization. Promotion from within isn't always a good thing. I'm specifically talking about IT and even more specifically Specialty IT. Those folks get paid waaaay too much. They'll never leave and you're actually encourage them to hold the status quo.

    Pros

    Benefits good
    Stable company
    Company overall is growing

    Cons

    Overworked. Wasn't uncommon to put in 60-80 hours a week.
    Underpaid compared to others within the IT field, particularly given the hours worked.
    IT Department restructuring and was a constant source of change.
    Little to no training.
    large number of managers with a few workers. Needed more people actually doing the day to day work.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Try to create a better work environment for employees.

    Pros

    Memories of the good old days. It was once fun to work here and to come in to work each day.

    Cons

    It was once fun to come to work. The environment was of teamwork and collaboration. Since the new president was installed you come in just to impress him. You have to laugh at his jokes and pretend that the endless stories of his business ventures abroad are interesting. Worse is that he has stripped us of all that was worth while. Just horrible leadership. He doesn't inspire anyone. People just put up with the horrible culture he has created long enough to find a way out. Compensation is horrible because he has turned to making cuts so that his numbers look good. He stifles innovation at every turn. Which is rather childish and insecure so people rarely feel worthy of contributing.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    We desperately need mature level headed leadership in this company. We need professionals with tangible industry experience leading the Specialty Group.

    Pros

    Great co-workers, ok work hours

    Cons

    Hired for call center and made the job sound like it would be a great fit for me. Training was horrible, not enough training and constantly micro-managed. Treated like a child and constantly reprimanded. Company let all former customer care go to save money and should have kept other call centers. Customers highly irate and mad about change.

    I have been working at AmerisourceBergen

    Pros

    Work place is nice. They have great soft drinks and hot beverages also.

    Cons

    People are nice front of your face. You will earn rewards for the work you do, but when they don't need you they will say you have poor work performance your quality was bad. Make so many excuses. It would not be right to show them good performance certificate they given to you to prove them wrong. They like people with poor quality with high production.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    I really hope management think twice before making such decisions. Its all about your company's reputation. After all its your company.
