    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.

    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 for 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 for 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.
