Very cliques, no matter how great you are at your job (fill in the blank)

No, I would not recommend this company to a friend – I'm not optimistic about the outlook for this company

My first full-time gig after college is mediocre

Patient Care Coordinator (Current Employee)
Monroeville, PA (US)

I have been working at AmerisourceBergen full-time for less than a year

ProsYou a part of a big team so things are flexible. Great benefits - you accrue 20 days of PTO per year in your first year. Fairly easy to move up in the company.

ConsHigh turnover. You lose some of your hourly pay if you switch to an earlier shift after you've been working a few months.

Honestly the Best Company I've Worked For

Anonymous Employee (Current Employee)
Chicago, IL (US)

I have been working at AmerisourceBergen full-time for less than a year

Pros- Incredible company mission & customer impact
- Strong leadership team driving the company in a solid direction
- Great teams to work with who show commitment to the organization & customers
- Enjoyable work atmosphere with competitive compensation & benefits
- Opportunities to pursue multiple satisfying career paths

Cons- Difficult to communicate well within such a large organization

Advice to Senior ManagementKeep striving to be a best-in-class workplace, and working diligently to attract and develop strong talent to achieve our goals. I'm very proud to work for ABC and will continually rave to internal and external customers about what a great company we are!

Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend – I'm optimistic about the outlook for this company

Short and not sweet

Senior Customer Liaison (Former Employee)
Toronto, ON (Canada)

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

ProsI had a great boss who knew what she was going and didnt micromanage. The peers were good, and I was able to work from home so had a lot of flexibility

ConsSenior Management had no idea what they were doing. The company sold its customers to a competitor and sold out all of its employees

No, I would not recommend this company to a friend – I'm not optimistic about the outlook for this company

Great Benefits. Poor Work/Life Balance on Second Shift

Warehouse Associate (Former Employee)

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

ProsGreat health insurance & overall benefits package

ConsNature of second shift here is that you work until all orders are filled. There were times when that meant an extra four hours tacked on to the end of your shift. We had very hard workers and ran very lean. I get it-- That's what makes this division more profitable. But there comes a point when morale is so low due to poor work/life balance (how do you plan your personal life when you don't know if you will be able to get enough sleep to function the next day in your role as parent, spouse, partner, caretaker, etc?) that management needs to step up and not just give lip-service to getting you more help, but actually do so. Don't get me wrong-- The overtime money was great, but often not worth what I gave up in my home/personal life.

Advice to Senior ManagementThink more creatively on how to make second shift hours a bit more predictable for your employees, and not perpetuate the "This is how it's always been on second shift" attitude.

– I'm optimistic about the outlook for this company
