    I have been working at AmerisourceBergen full-time

    Pros

    decent pay, good vacation time offered

    Cons

    everything is being consolidated down to 1 or 2 places. Many Customer Service and System Support positions have lost their jobs yet the call volume is only going up. the departments that are left have no idea what they are doing. Customers are realizing this as well

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    I would hire more people. Call wait times for Customer service are ridiculous

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

    Pros

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

    Cons

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

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Request 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.

    I have been working at AmerisourceBergen full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    Generally smart people and many are patient access focused. Good industry reputation. Financially strong. Exposure to most of industry. Opportunity to work remotely.

    Cons

    No work life balance. Management has a passive aggressive borderline personality disorder. HR is a joke. Compensation harmonization - pretty much a middle finger to everyone. Zero growth opportunity unless you are a cultural favorite. Benefits are awful. A new slogan or pep talk every month and it is not working. Constant communication breakdown. IT understaffed, under budgeted and under prioritized.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Been there, done that and even when heard they are not listening. Style over substance.
