Short and not sweet

Senior Customer Liaison (Former Employee)
Toronto, ON

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

ProsI 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

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

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

Disappointing, not challenging and frustrating

Nurse Support Specialist (Current Employee)
Montreal, QC

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

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

Conseverybody 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 Senior ManagementEvaluate 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.

No, I would not recommend this company to a friend

Not good for employee growth and development

Anonymous Employee (Former Employee)

I worked at AmerisourceBergen full-time for more than 10 years

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

ConsIf 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 Senior ManagementRespect your employees.

No, I would not recommend this company to a friend
