    I have been working at AmerisourceBergen full-time for more than 10 years

    Pros

    Good health benefits, paid vacation, and 401K.

    Cons

    Poor leadership, poor organization. Too many executives uptop that you can't even keep track of who they are or how they even contribute to the company. No bonuses for the people that actually do the work and no respect for hard working employees.

    I have been working at AmerisourceBergen full-time for more than 10 years

    Pros

    The pay is competitive and there is a friendly atmosphere. The expectations are clearly made available and your career progress is carefully tracked.

    Cons

    The vertical growth is limited in some areas. In some divisions people are hired for who they know not what they know.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Try to look at the the best fit for a particular job and not who know somebody.

    I worked at AmerisourceBergen for more than 10 years

    Pros

    The company is financially stable in an unstable economy.

    Cons

    Compensation is not competitive with the market. Employees are underpaid; annual increases are nominal even for superior rated employees. The "Good Old Boy" network is alive and well. Most employment is job vs. career oriented; little to no room for advancement.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Recognize excellence and reward it. Create career paths for your employes to ensure talent retention.

    Pros

    If you are a kiss up or affiliated with a supplier, you are golden

    Cons

    I became disabled after 11 years at ABC and they couldn't dump me fast enough.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Stop trying to be Bergen #2. You are draining company.

    I worked at AmerisourceBergen full-time for more than 10 years

    Pros

    Successful company with growth opportunity for certain positions. Can be long hours. Good benefits. Expectations of being connected 24/7 with technology.

    Cons

    Stressful environment, many unhappy associates, lack of communication and training. Growth opportunities are decided before they are even posted. Creates an environment of distrust and cynicism.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Be more open and less secretive. Work on recognition and appreciation for the hard work they receive.

    Current Employee - Strategic Planning in Chesterbrook, PA (US)

    I have been working at AmerisourceBergen as an intern for less than a year

    Pros

    The people who work there were great, I had a lot of responsibilities and the work I did actually made a difference within my division

    Cons

    If you are looking for full time after having an internship there, you will be waiting until very close to when you can start working upon graduation. They hire just in time so do not hire much more than 2 months out of a start date.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Try to determine jobs that could be created from the work done by interns and potentially offer them jobs at the end of the summer if you feel like they did good work.

    I worked at AmerisourceBergen full-time for less than a year

    Pros

    Location is great and most people are amazing to work with. The pay was really good.

    Cons

    If management finds someone that they prefer for your position, they will just fire you. So you better be a rockstar.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    You need to have better communication with your employees and you need to make your employees feel like you actually support them. If one of your employee's job is in jeopardy, it is only ethical to let them know. Don't just fire them and make up some story to get rid of them.

    I worked at AmerisourceBergen full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    This is a good company especially for young adults as there is lots of training provided, and a career track that can lead one to management.

    Cons

    Sort of out of touch policies.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Everything is not simply black and white -- some differences are healthy. While rules are important, it is also good to have some flexibility to allow for innovation. It is important that certain protocols are met, but a good idea can go a long, long way. This also engages the associates to invest mrs of themselves into their work and to the company.
