    Pros

    Great network of subject matter experts employed who have been in the industry for several years; many willing to share, mentor and help in any way they can.

    Great benefit package, Employee Stock Purchase Plan, 401k, and salary.

    Cons

    Combating some of the "bad press" Stericycle has received in years past- still sticks with many customers and you must "dig your way out of a hole" sometimes.. but measures are being pursued to have the image and culture corrected.

    Advice to Management

    Thank you for listening to employee surveys and making efforts to create positive changes based on feedback. Love the new SteriTV and all that Paul brings to the table.

    Pros

    Learn lean improvement, Benefits are unreal, Some of my coworkers I'd consider "best of the best", Learning possibilities are endless,

    Cons

    Salary is lower than other places but the benefits exceed other places-401k increases faster, stock options are great, limited growth in some departments,

    Advice to Management

    Staff Accordingly, promote wisely into management, before losing valuable employees

    Pros

    This is a fast paced atmosphere that offers a lot of opportunity to create processes and quicklly move forward with projects. This takes the right person to work for a company that has grown so fast, so quickly. Due to the growth, things change often and we often have to shift to support the growing business. Those who do well at Stericycle are those that are motivated by that chance to get your hands in the business and grow professionally. The current CEO, Charlie Alutto, is truly passionate about building a best in class company to work for. There is even a team dedicated to culture within the company. They compensate fairly and the benefits package is competitive. Tons of growth opportunity!

    Cons

    It runs very lean and can be very stressful at times.

    Pros

    Great Co. to work for. Been here for many years, movbeen promoted many times due to my hard work. I had great mentors along the way who were always willing to share their knowledge. Stericycle has helped me with my career in this organization and has believed in me as an individual and allows me to share my subject matter expertise. The culture of the organziation is making great strides and I am proud to belong to this family.

    Cons

    Some management are concered with their own personal gains and not the focus of the growth of the organization but I do feel that will change over time. Getting the right people in the right position is what has contributed to the growth of Stericycle over the years, change will happen and growth will continue.
