    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.

    Pros

    Ability to work in diverse cross functional teams to produce results in the pharmaceutical world.
    Room for growth if you apply your self and stay dedicated
    Hours can be flexible with some of the teams.
    Absorb as much knowledge as you can if you want to be successful, network and contribute ideas.

    Cons

    Hours can sometimes be long, but its to produce results.
    Some leadership has to together, others do not.
    Training is constantly required because methods are always changing.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Listen to the idea that the team has, and try not to make promises to the clients that cannot be met.

    I worked at AmerisourceBergen full-time for more than a 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

    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.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Made a big mistake

    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.

    Pros

    You receive incentive pay for how fast you work, so the faster you work the more money you receive. Start pay is decent, $11 per hr for night shift $10 for day shift. Easy job everything is pretty much in numeric and alphabetical order.

    Cons

    Takes for ever for a full time position to be available

    If you treat your employees right they will work hard for you.
