    Former Employee - Customer Care Representative in Mansfield, MA (US)

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

    Pros

    I'm not sure if it was my specific location or if it was company wide, but it is hard to find any pros to working here. If I had to pick one positive, it would be the occasional give aways they had in the warehouse. Aside from that, not much else can be said.

    Cons

    The pay was subpar. The overall morale was the worst I have ever experienced in any environment. Supervisors were never helpful and never had your best interest. Some supervisors did school work in their office, while the rest of us worked hard to get the job done. Some employees got away with being on personal calls all day while others had to pick up their slack by taking 100+ calls a day.

    If you spoke up about anything mistreatment or wrongdoing, you were accused of causing a hostile environment and creating tension in the workplace.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Start appreciating the great employees you have! This includes compensating them properly, making them feel as though they are part of a great team and rewarding those who go above and beyond. Most importantly, you need to LISTEN to what employees are saying.

    I have been working at AmerisourceBergen

    Pros

    you get a paycheck every 2 weeks.

    Cons

    management has no people skills, they are afraid of losing their jobs because there are just too many managers and too little workers. the managers don't want to do their part so they overload their subordinates and micromanage them because they have nothing else to do. The CIO seems down to earth but is totally out of touch with lower level managers and how unprofessional they behave. Management discriminates in every way, race, age, sex, etc. Frat house environment and when you disagree with the behavior..YOU are the problem,.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Investigate the lower levels of management, people are suffering. Also, take a look at your unsympathetic HR dept in Chesterbrook. If they don't care, they should at least try and fake it, HR is intimidating and you feel like you have no where to turn when being harassed and bullied other than to look elsewhere for employment.

    I worked at AmerisourceBergen full-time (more than an year)

    Pros

    Fortune 50 company doing lots of SAP work outsourced to IBM & TCS. A lot of talk about trying to be successful.

    Cons

    Not known for innovative development. The hired directors & VP's are not very experienced in people/conflict management. Their profit margins have dropped significantly after the Walgreens 25 Billion contract. Budgets are low for any reasonable innovation to happen. The offices in Valley Forge is more like a call center without any cubicles. There is absolutely no privacy. There are no architecture related thought process for integration of the various silos.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Having a real plan for cutting operating cost.

    Pros

    The pay was decent and commute

    Cons

    'At Will" Company (fire without warning) Management is incompetent You will get no more than 1-2 years with this company and they[ll find a reason to fire you without formal write ups of warnings.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Train your your employees. Another company who favors certain employees. Most of them don't know there jobs. No one in management cares about the employees only about themselves. Fire management and keep the employees!

    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 full-time (less than an year)

    Pros

    Pay was good, nice building. Central Industrial part of Ville Saint Laurent in Montreal.

    Cons

    Work atmosphere toxic with old employees trying to poison the new hires and succeeding most of the time. One old employee told she had been there of almost 15 years and hated it

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Survey what the older hires are telling the new hires and make a clean out of all the old guard, with negative attitudes.

    Former Employee - Manager in Philadelphia, PA (US)
    Former Employee - Manager in Philadelphia, PA (US)

    I worked at AmerisourceBergen full-time (more than 10 years)

    Pros

    Initially management was engaged with the development of high performing associates. Dave Yost, Mike Dicandillo were instrumental in driving company excellence. A very good track record of growing earnings using fiscally sound business management principles. ABC remained competitive because of the extremely lean business methodologies, which were practiced company wide.

    Cons

    After much of the downsizing and personnel transitions, few talented people were left to fend for themselves while trying to execute a poor business plan. SAP implementation took too long and the cost over run hurt the company's financial stability. ABC had to reduce costs through eliminating key individuals who were making too much money. The dismissals cost ABC unknown amounts of talent and hard business knowledge.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    The ideas of senior management have not worked to produce a better ABC. Time to rid yourselves of the dead weight in senior management. I am saddened to see many good people were asked to leave while many marginal people stayed. I don't know that the company realized these individuals went to competing companies, which will challenge ABC for future business.

    I have been working at AmerisourceBergen part-time

    Pros

    A building with a parking deck is nice that you do no have to pay for like the city of Chicago parking

    Cons

    Hired to be in bound call center and that you were hired to only take calls for Walgen. Only and the pay was was for that it was inbound call center only ( not so), mandatory weekend( for training)'if a co worker ask you how you feel--- you better be Pro company---- or you are wrote up or even fired for letting a co worker know weekend work is hard on your family (especially when you are a single mom and it will cost you even if you can find a sitter.....The pay does not match the work you must do"......you are micro managed.. To the point of having to put a caller on hold.. To answer IM,High ,why is the call take longer than is on the list of time..we'll looking up credits, taking orders and seeing why the supervisor did not call them back ....But please keep in mind if you share with management team or anyone else( survey you are sent) you Better say the company is great!!!!

    Former Employee - Warehouse Associate II in Kansas City, MO (US)

    I worked at AmerisourceBergen full-time (more than an year)

    Pros

    The health care packages if your single with no kids

    Cons

    Too many hours
    Not enough employees
    Change your hours of employment at will. Started at 7-3:30, then 6-2:30, then 5-1:30. but never ever just work 8 hrs. a light day is 10 hrs. mostly 12-14 hrs. Now the force mandatory weekends.
    They fire you based on another employee word.
    Basically no way to advance. They pride themselves on running "lean"
    Incentive pay makes everyone selfish and disrespectful
    All these 3 stars seem to be corporate, office or management.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Stop hiring not enough people then fire them for basically no reason. Offer better raises. pay them more. 12.26 for what we had to do is not enough. also how could i work just one day and make more than someone who has been there 5+ years? Your shipping and receiving teams keeps this company #1 pay them accordingly. Also 3% pay raises are nothing. Get rid of incentive pay which makes everyone sloppy and careless, which creates a unorganized and messy warehouse with poor inventory accountability, and give your warehouse employees at least a 3 dollar raise.
