    Great company with great vision for the future!

    Anonymous Employee (Current Employee) Portland, ME

    ConsCommunication within the company is at times lacking.

    Advice to Senior ManagementKeep doing what you're doing! You're building something great and I am honored to be along for the journey!

    Overall it was pleasant. But hard at times as well

    Hospital Service Supervisor (Former Employee)

    ProsPay was good, Flex time, Company car, cell phone, Benefits. All the Fringe benefits were pretty good. We worked hard and we played hard.

    ConsUpper management support, Leadership development, a change in culture was needed but not everyone supported that notion. I worked my butt off for no recognition on a job well done.

    Advice to Senior ManagementWhen you see obvious leaders and visionary people please do not waste them or feel threaten they will only make you look better in the long run.

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

    1st Year Here

    Quality Regulatory Associate (Current Employee) Indianapolis, IN

    ProsI love the team dynamics and the companies emphasis on "One Team One Goal." A very cohesive culture.

    ConsThe work life balance is not great. There is hardly any difference in being a salaried employee as to hourly.

    Advice to Senior ManagementMake an effort to focus on the work being completed rather than the time. There is no benefit to your salaried employees working to be more efficient if you are nit picking about every minute spent. It makes employees slow down to make the work last all day instead of being innovative and motivated to do better work in a better time frame. I've seen teams of Stericycle employees work diligently to accommodate clients and help their team mates. They love what they do. Don't stifle that with micromanaging.

    Overall Great Company To Work For

    Hospital Service Supervisor (Former Employee) Portland, OR

    ProsDecent pay rates, excellent benefits!

    ConsSome redundant and antiquated ways of doing things; service level employees aren't given much opportunity to make necessary changes that would aide them in completing their tasks.

    Kind of a toss-up on upper management. You may get lucky and have a relaxed, stellar Regional; you may end with a hard-ass who makes your life miserable.

    Advice to Senior ManagementListen to your junior management; they're the ones in the trenches with the service folks who have the best logistical solutions.

    Advice to Senior ManagementDevelop an HR transition team for acquisitions.
