    Flat Organization

    Anonymous Employee (Current Employee)

    ProsStable industry. Long term employees. 401k matching is about standard, consistent medical/dental benefits. We have been able to keep the same practitioners of the last few years.

    ConsLow annual increases. Flat organization, little room for advancement

    Advice to Senior ManagementWould be an ideal job if there were room for advancement

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

    STERIS headed in the wrong direction

    Account Manager (Current Employee) Houston, TX

    ProsWork at your own pace

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

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

    Innovative and Positive Workplace

    Customer Care Representative (Current Employee) Mentor, OH

    ProsGreat benefits, the company offers a growth program that employees can follow and they are large supporters of career development within the company. STERIS is an industry leader in the medical field and working for a company like that is something to be proud of.

    ConsSimilar to many other corporations, meeting quotas and getting reports in on time are of great importance. The environment between employees is friendly but there's always a competitive atmosphere since internal hiring plays a large role.

    soon to be former employee

    Manufacturing (Current Employee) Mentor, OH

    Prosclean working environment. At least they are offering a severance package, if they let us see it. They buy us doughnuts once in awhile.

    Conspoor management. don't care at all about employees, or developing them. Favoritism. Bad management has lead to my plants closedown. Many jobs lost. Over 18 years service..

    Advice to Senior ManagementYou say you want to hear what employees have to say. But then you shun them when they do voice themselves. Most of the management responsible for the plant shutdown are gone. And the current ones will just take new jobs within the company and could careless about the people who's jobs were eliminated. Develop the employees that you have. And don't blame the fda or the employees for the plant shutdown. It was poor management that caused the shutdown.

    Decent Company, Bad Pay

    Field Service Representative (Current Employee) New York, NY

    ProsThe company treats it's employees well. The benefits are dirt cheap and good, the car perks are great for field service, the 401K matching is very good compared to anywhere else, there is a great measure of autonomy in the job, little micromanaging, focus on safety.

    ConsThe pay blows, although its half made up for in benefits, etc, the pay REALLY blows. Work life balance is hard to achieve at times, leadership is lost, product quality isn't what it used to be, metrics are killing the service workforce.

    Advice to Senior ManagementFocus on buying companies and corporate direction is fine, although likely overrated in terms of actual shareholder value. If there is any focus on the service team at all, it is sorely inadequate or misguided. Pay scale forces the good people out and will never attract any top talent. Metrics tied to bonuses lead to unethical decisions across the workforce, number manipulation is rampant and will end up with FDA violations or worse. New hire training (service) is broken, not from a product standpoint, but from a procedure perspective. No one knows what to do. Siebel is an disaster. Customer focused decisions will make for good service, if you try to tailor the service business to your needs (surgical division) and ignore massive decline in customer service that accompanies the choices by looking at metrics (fake data), eventually the customers will go elsewhere... By the time it effects the sales numbers it will be to late and STERIS' reputation will already be tarnished.
