    I worked at Stericycle full-time (more than 5 years)

    Pros

    The culture initiative was good, in theory. Upper management did seek employee feedback annually.

    Cons

    Roles are not always clearly defined; don't expect to be doing what your job description says, but do expect to be micromanaged. Corporate and local management have different ideas on how things should work, and if you ask different levels of management a question, you'll get different answers. Each level blames the next. Middle management says "It's this way because HR says so." But you ask HR, and it's "No, that's never been the policy, that's up to individual managers." Given that one of the core values is accountability, that's just shameful.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Upper management would do well to visit onsite more often, particularly unannounced. It gives more of a sense of community, shows commitment to the core values, and also gets some insight into what's going on when there's high turnover or unusual changes in profit.
