    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 Management

    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

    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.

    Cons

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

    Advice to Management

    Service needs to be improved

    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

    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.

    Pros

    -Great department management: Immediate bosses are very supportive and concerned about improving processes -Lots of departments to advance to if you are interested in improving your skill set or picking up new specializations -Great benefits: decent amount of paid time off, cheap medical and dental plans (for 24-year old healthy male)

    Cons

    -Lack of flexibility in work schedule, have had to cancel paid time and have very little weekday free time -Lack of communication between IT teams means multiple app/ project launches can occur simultaneously and so support staff get overwhelmed at times -Not enough front-line staff to handle workload if someone is on vacation or out
