    I worked at AmerisourceBergen

    Pros

    The best thing is that you get flexible hours if you work in IT. You are able to take days off here and there as long as there is no conflict in schedules and you make up for the days in the future. Also, you have a lot of freedom as in deciding on the type of tools that you use in a project. The supervisor would listen to you and value your opinions. Also, they will pay for any relevant courses that you take. This and also the flexible schedules make it easy to grow yourself while you work there.

    Cons

    Growth in the company is limited and not a lot of variations among the IT projects. This is common to most of the companies who don't sell "IT" as their products, so it is understandable. You work there to improve their IT infrastructure and IT solutions, and that is pretty much it. Other than that, you also work for bosses who are not in your field and therefore a lot of times they don't really value what your contribution is for the company. This translates to the lack of growth in compensation and benefits usually. Also, it makes it harder to communicate with them about your vision and etc.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Set up annual reviews for employees and incentives for employees to grow and advance.

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

    Pros

    Laid back work environment. Usual office politics exists (I've seen better and I've seen worse - this is somewhere in the middle). A little conservative when it comes to building stuff on newer technologies. If you're looking to be a big fish in a small pond, this is the right place.

    Cons

    Slow-paced. Too much bureaucracy. Unapologetically process-oriented. Everyone's focused on CYA, so everyone's afraid of making decisions.

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

    Pros

    Good benefits, relatively not stressful. Easy work. Lots of time off and paid holidays. People there can be welcoming if you stick around.

    Cons

    Most everyone in manufacturing dislikes working there. Low pay. Long hours. Messed up schedule. Very high turnover rate. Many unclear policies and instruction. The work is very boring.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Pay your people more. They make your business happen. Focus on quality, then numbers. More incentive for loyal/good employees. Listen to the obvious signs of the high turnover rates. Refine your policies and procedures so employees know in detail what you expect of them.

    Pros

    Love the location in suburban Frisco, love the gym located in the office park, love the healthcare benefits and PTO is generous. Like the people I work with.

    Cons

    Depending on your business unit; but mine in particular is very client driven, as opposed to following our processes and systems. It is non-stop, urgent demands from clients.
