    I have been working at STERIS full-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    Excellent Work-Life Balance with great hours

    Cons

    Very old fashioned organization with males in all key roles. Good old boy system with executives choosing their successors decades in advance of their retirement. Selections are relationship based versus performance based. Poor performing employees are kept around.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Challenge your workers. Diversify your executive team. Top-grade poor performers.

    I have been working at STERIS full-time (more than 10 years)

    Pros

    Good field to work in, great customer base, good job in spite of company, several decent perks, pay is adequate, plenty of time off available in theory

    Cons

    Ever-increasing stress primarily comes from company, not from job/customers, company constantly at cross purposes with actual job, constant bad decisions made by bean counters or other non-field workers, continually more irrelevant additional requirements given even though job itself has always been the same, never-ending grief from all levels of management and/or general bureaucracy for a myriad of perceived compliance failures, time off very difficult to actually take without hoops to jump through and major stress, understaffed, ever-changing and usually contradictory goals/rules/priorities

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    SIMPLIFY, back off, provide real incentives, find out what job actually is in the field, be realistic, get out of bed with the government, and make products that sales and techs can be proud to present and service.

    Pros

    For professional salaried employees, the company offers a relaxed, friendly work environment with competitive pay and benefits.

    Cons

    The CEO has steadily grown the business by purchasing smaller companies. At times, the company struggles to act as a cohesive whole.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Continue work standardization efforts.

    Current Employee - Sales

    I have been working at STERIS full-time (more than 5 years)

    Pros

    Large company with a lot of resources. The name is synonymous with quality & reliability most of the time. Company stands behind it products. Great job for someone new in sales, however training is weak.

    Cons

    Manipulation of the quotas and sales numbers. Don't value one of their most important assets the sales force. If you live in a top 20 cities you will need another income for your household. Compensation & salary based on Midwest cost of living.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Saving your way to a $2B company doesn't make you strong. Being innovative, reinvesting in your markets and employees does. Properly Incentives your sales force. You will be surprised how much more profitable the company can be if your total cost of goods sold increased. Competition is always a good thing. It forces us to do our best. A poor comp plan (incentives) renders people complacent and satisfied with mediocrity. Explain in detail how you derived the new FY sales plan. Lastly, be honest.

    Pros

    Hours are first shift. Overtime is available. Ok place to work.

    Cons

    No benefits for temps. You are treated as a number and that's all. Very little appreciation by management. They will hire you to work second shift and take a huge pay cut.

    Pros

    Very friendly and safe job with this growing company. Not a lot of pressure since there is a large product portfolio and easy ability to gain access to facilities.

    Service hiring is not carful so you as a sales rep are spending some time fixing issues with service.

    Service needs to be improved

    Pros

    Great company with good culture and great people! Many of the employees in my building have been here for years so there is room to grow. If you so desire, STERIS is a great place to start your career and then work until you want to retire which is tough to do in any job market in 2014

    Cons

    Their is some turnover just like with any other organization but other than that, there is nothing negative I have come across.
