I worked at STERIS

Pros

Easy to excel
Good pay for performers
Low expectations

If you're willing to go the extra mile you'll get promoted pretty quickly and be given more responsibilities. The problem is that Steris doesn't hire additional people when work gets overwhelming, so take on extra work at your own risk.

Cons

Low motivation
Poor morale
A lot of complacent employees

Little to no career advancement opportunities and "leadership" is to the point where everyone is able to just get by doing the very minimum. There are some great people in great positions but there is an ineptitude in middle management that just brings the organization down.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Trim some layers from Director level and above, start investing in leadership.

    I worked at STERIS as a contractor (less than an year)

    Pros

    Has lots of technology
    Has a stronghold in Healthcare
    It has a global presence
    Not afraid to spend money
    New headquarters looks great.

    Cons

    Many employees seemed pretty rude
    Lots of bad office politics take place in the IT department
    Outsources to India
    Uses lots of H-1B visas
    Moved Plants to Mexico.
    Has no real corporate identity, its a shame, i was really suprised by the chaos.
    Management was a let down.
    Doesn't value domestic talent. Saving a buck and getting sub-par work is good enough.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Hire some decent Full-time programmers who know how to build enterprise applications.
    Think about getting a younger management team, with new ideas.

    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

    what shall i say if i must have to feeling that my thoughts are not welcome ore not recognized

    Negative Outlook
    No opinion of CEO
