Nice to work at the Company but it´s very hard to get recognized in the System as a person with own ideas

I have been working at STERIS full-time (more than 8 years)

Pros

- i can organize my daily work by my own also the coverage and visits at customers can be organized by my own
- of course i get a company car, mobile phone, computer etc. (these are normal things which will also provided by other companies if you are enploeed there, so nothing special to announce)

Cons

- Management just looks on revenue
- Wrong deccisions are made in developing market strategies
- Customers needs and recommendations are not recognized in the right way
- Some Managers have to bee educated more in realizing the way how the customer is thinking and which reaction of the customer is meaning what (interaction of saying and meaning)
- Development of new products is made by wrong peoples under wrong conclusions, mostly a development does not match the requirements of the customer needs. Most important goal is to reduce cost by growing the revenue but not to grow the customers satisfaction
- too much "very important people" in leading positions, some of them are just important in their own eyes
- product improvement is done to late and not related to customers requirement
- overall you must get the impression that only the shareholders interests are in focus but not the customer need

Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Pros

    Good technology
    Great service organization
    Market leader
    Great brand recognition
    Very broad product line
    Wide range of supply items to support equipment sale
    Full benefits package and travel expenses paid

    Cons

    Territories to large
    To many sales reps calling on the same accounts
    To worried about what the competition is doing.
    Some products have reached market life and should go.
    Skin care soaps are old school. Need new ones

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Stop worrying about what the competition is doing. Go back to asking the customers what they need or want.
    Stop getting rid or the seasoned reps once they reach 50. Loosing the knowledge base
    If the territories were smaller a rep could focus more on key accounts.
    The board should get someone with some charisma to motivate the sales force. Current top is not in touch what is needed and they need some new ideas.

    Pros

    Freedom to do your job without corporate politics

    Cons

    Low entry pay, then promissed raises were not delivered. Was told that home office would not allow it.

    Forced to use all vacation before being paid any sick leave.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Do not low ball a tech to get him on board and then expect him to stay if you don't deliver on promised improvements.
