Pros

Able to set work schedules. Ability to purchase tools and supplies as needed. Get to work for some fantastic customers and contractors. Paycheck usually comes.

Cons

After my first manager all other managers were very poor ow their jobs. We were not given enough time to complete jobs and were punished for working overtime.
Very cliquey new hires are not qualified. Company uses gps to track technicians. Micro management is the norm. Low pay and no respect for field service group. High turnover. Poor quality. Electronics are made in china if one device out of one hundred works they make a tidy profit. The it and programmers are incompetent
It may take 30 revisions to get a program that almost works. It support is non existent beyond rebooting your machineThis company is a brown nosers dream. Insurance not that comprehensive.

Advice to Management

Lower your bonuses. Improve quality. Hire qualified individuals. Restore some perks the field had taken from them.

    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 Management

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

    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 Management

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