    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

    Salary and benefits are comparable with other companies

    Cons

    Senior management is poorly run; change in staff continuous; lacking consistency for their clients. Senior manager are given too many programs to manage causing chaos and confusion

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    I advise to not overload and overwhelm your senior managers; you may then be able to retain them and have better outcome for your clients
    Company is unable to guarantee a position once your position assignment or program has ended

    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

    The environment remains a fairly good place to work. The benefits are good.

    Cons

    In the segment of the company I am, the area is so under staffed that one person is doing 4-5 people's jobs. There are people within the company that are more concerned with what everyone else is doing then that of their own job. The tools that the my segment of the company have to use are so antiquated that it is nearly impossible to get accurate financial data out to make decisions. There is very little support by the parent company.

    incentive pay, good insurance

    Cons

    Way too much overtime, we need help but no advertising or job fairs to get people in the door. Pay needs to be better for how hard we work.

    Hire more people!

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

    Pros

    Lenient on hours if part time. It is incentives based so you're able able to have somewhat of a say so in how much you get paid

    Cons

    The cons would be that full time doesn't have a specific stop time. You leave when the work is done. Other than
     That things are pretty great
