    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.

    Former Employee - Software in Buffalo Grove, IL (US)

    I worked at AmerisourceBergen full-time (more than 5 years)

    Pros

    Pay is almost on par with industry standards. Benefits are average.

    Cons

    Elitist Management structure. They have no clue, want no clue, anyone beneath Director level is considered peon level an unworthy to speak to or deal with. Management has no authority. Directors are what most companies consider managers. Managers more like Leads. Sycophants are the ones promoted, not those who make the company work. Career opportunities are not abundant in the Chicago area. They promote managers with NO experience in management at all. Buffalo Grove is filled to the brim with inexperience management and elitist upper management. Treat professionals like kindergarten children.

    No vision for future product, competition is wiping the floors with us due to disassociated management and marketing.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Become more human. interact. Stop by and actually SEE what it takes to run a company instead of listening to the greenies you hired to manage professionals. Stop locking yourself in offices and actually walk around and speak with people.

    This company pays the best for this type of work in this area.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Let the employees work stand for itself as opposed to people who you hang out with outside of work.

    Pros

    Employees are great and with the huge Walgreens contract there is a lot of opportunity here!

    Cons

    I was new to the SAP software so it took me a little while to get comfortable.

    Upper management is fantastic! Communicates with all levels of employees all throughout the country so everyone knows what is going on around them.

    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

    Pros

    Love the location in suburban Frisco, love the gym located in the office park, love the healthcare benefits and PTO is generous. Like the people I work with.

    Cons

    Depending on your business unit; but mine in particular is very client driven, as opposed to following our processes and systems. It is non-stop, urgent demands from clients.
