    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.

    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.

    Cons

    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 (less than an 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

    The bonuses were nice when they were given fairly

    Cons

    Too much nepotism and favoritism. Also, professional development is non existent. Do not work here if you actually have a degree.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Do not become a manager if you do not have management skills.

    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.

    I worked at AmerisourceBergen full-time (more than 8 years)

    Pros

    ABC is a large corporation with many resources for development and advancement. You can succeed but you have to work extra hard to be recognized for your efforts - that's the pitfall of working in a large organization. Benefits are excellent.

    Cons

    No work life balance and pay is average for the market place. The focus is 1st in profit, 2nd on customer and 3rd on employee.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Invest in IT systems that will enhance the employee and customer experience
