    I have been working at STERIS

    Pros

    The company has some good profits and growth, new products and new ideas coming out all the time. If you perform well you get a steady raise and promotions. Challenging environment, good set of coworkers.

    Cons

    Most of the idea coming out have to do with improving efficiency, and are not very consistent, correct one day wrong the next kind of stuff. Although the company grows and shows larger and larger profits they have an expectation for you to cut your overtime while doing more and more work and more and more requirements coming from the top.

    Current Employee - Field Service Representative I in San Diego, CA

    I have been working at STERIS full-time (less than an year)

    Pros

    Home office is great!, Do what you are supposed to do and they leave you alone. No micro-managing, naggy supervisors or any complaining employees to bother with.
    I don't understand why some people are complaining when Steris is actually hiring in a stagnate job market. Maybe the previous employees couldn't pass the Seris University online testing? It is pretty tough! WOW!!!

    Cons

    Communication could be better from management.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Have an open line of communication from smartphone/device to a smart help desk for any type of issue. Too many phone numbers to remember.

    Pros

    Lenient work hours for office employees. 3% (at the time) match for 401K, great health insurance, safe environment, training

    Cons

    Low morale, quality & customer satisfaction > your satisfaction, LEAN initiatives have gone overboard and include auditing office desks, no 'thank yous' or 'congratulations' for any milestones or achievements, no room for growth
