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

    Pros

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

    Cons

    Upper 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 ManagementAdvice

    When 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.

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

    Pros

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

    Cons

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

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Make 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.
