Stressful environment

Anonymous Employee (Former Employee)

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

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

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

No, I would not recommend this company to a friend

Summer internship

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

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

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

ConsIf 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 Senior ManagementTry 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.

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

Better be a rockstar

Financial Analyst (Former Employee)
Frisco, TX (US)

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

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

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

Advice to Senior ManagementYou 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'm optimistic about the outlook for this company

Career Track

Anonymous Employee (Former Employee)

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

ProsThis 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.

ConsSort of out of touch policies.

Advice to Senior ManagementEverything 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.

Good company in general with growing pains moving slowly forward

Associate (Current Employee)
Chesterbrook, PA (US)

I have been working at AmerisourceBergen full-time for more than 5 years

ProsGood co-workers, benefits and above average working conditons.

ConsTop heavy mgmt, old guard, old school thinking, not incredibly tech savy.

Advice to Senior ManagementRequest and implement recommendations from associates rather then paying a 3rd party to find gaps. Increase work life balance. Allow more opportunites from working from home from tech. Open full access to the web without filters. Embrace innovation. Embrace thinking outside the box. Continue to work on creating an environment that is innovative and helps provide associates with the opportunity to excel and in turn provide our customers with the best service possible.
