    Good people in the work force, eager to listen and learn.

    Management only knows ONE way to do things, their way, they do not listen nor use experienced workers ideas or suggestions.

    HR sides with females, NO MATTER what!

    Pros

    Better than a Russian Gulag during good old Joe Stalin's day. As an added bonus the plant is located in a very interesting neighborhood where you can have a front row seat to Friday night gun fights.There are some great hourly and salaried employees there. The company itself has a major problem training, motivating or advancing employees.

    Cons

    Poor pay, 3rd world benefits, plenty of dangerous chemicals and poorly maintained equipment. if the Three Stooges bought a great company from Bristol Meyers and did their best to destroy it you would have an idea of what the St. Louis / Pagedale location is like.

     If you are fifty years or older forget about raises or advancements. Get ready for an early "retirement". Chances are you will soon be unemployed. I got out and found an excellent employer. Sadly most of my contemporaries were not as lucky.

    Advice to Management

    Sell your stock before it is too late. The people in charge of managing daily operations are way over their heads.

    Pros

    Work at your own pace

    Cons

    STERIS is so far behind the competition in the Surgical business unit they have no chance in catching up. Stryker and Hill-room are going to run STERIS to a minor player in hospitals, and the upper management just doesn't see it coming.

    Advice to Management

    company values are not Lie, Cheat, Steal and make it up on the back end.

    Employment or Servitude

    I worked at STERIS full-time

    Pros

    Solid company with very good benefits.

    Cons

    Although STERIS is a solid company, I feel management at this company do not believe ethics and morals are important principles to follow when dealing with other human beings. I also feel that there no equality at STERIS because management believes they are well above their staff. I mean,they truly believe that even the way you speak to management should be different from anyone else you speak to simply because they are management. STERIS Corporation management encourages a culture of back stabbing and favoritism and they have already a stereotype of what a good employee is: so if you fall a little bit far from what they believe a good employee is, they you are ostracize and isolate you. They love young people and even though they hire one or two middle age people, these individuals are "rarely" considered for a fair opportunity within the company. They will tell you this is not true but they will hit you exactly on your ego, hurting your self steem and mining your confidence so it really will look like it is your fault. Thus, if you decide to work there, remember, if you are between the ages 18 and 30 ( being optimistic) you are in a good position but do not ever challenge management even if you are right, now if you are over 30 more close to 40, I would look for a more progressive open mind company who understand the value of experience and professionalism. Steris makes easy money in the Health Care industry.They do not feel there is much need of a fair management who cares about "every employee". STERIS manages like a militar regime, brain wash where younger people have little critical thinking to understand.

    Advice to Management

    I feel that management at steris needs to be retrained in understanding what is really like to have an open mind to what the employees have to say, do not label people STERIS. Team work is exactly about variety, have more tolerance for what is different, understand real creativity and diversity.
