    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 part-time for more than a year

    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

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

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

    Pros

    Weekend hours, they payed what was promised in interview, there were some great co-workers, supervisor (s) really took training seriously but also made it fun.

    Long hours 12+ shifts, didn't know from week to week if any work would be there. Would have liked to have the opportunity to work more hours if available during the week.

    I worked at AmerisourceBergen as an intern for less than a year

    Pros

    The summer internship program is a great experience. You get to meet many executive members and network with other higher ups. The environment is very laid back and welcoming. The experience is very valuable and helps set you up for your future.

    Cons

    There were times where there was not much to do rather than busy work. Also, getting used to SAP took some time at first.

    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.
