Pros

Commissions are good if you even make it that far.

Cons

Where do I start? This is an extremely high pressure sales job. You are pretty much tricking customers into signing a long-term contract for more money with almost no incentive or added service.

Extreme favoritism by upper management for certain employees.
Dishonesty of upper management.
People have gotten screwed out of money on their commission checks.
Seasoned reps receive 3 times as many leads and are basically guaranteed commission without doing much work.

You are taught to basically lie to customers regarding the price of their services.
Extremely unethical pricing and very price discriminating.

    Pros

    Wow, I actually need to think pretty hard about this one. Has potential to be a good company to work at but, the infinite negatives would need to be fixed.

    Cons

    It’s hilarious that there are people that have posted Stericycle is a good place to work. It’s SO transparent that it’s a company higher-up trying to do damage control. Stericycle’s arrogance is its downfall. Stericycle takes advantage of its size and market share to bully its customers no matter of the size of the company or the state of the economy. I’ve said hello to the vp of the small quantity division probably 100 times while I worked there and most of the time he would just walk right past me, nose in the air. You are constantly afraid for your job and the turn over is unbelievably high. Nepotism is rampant and egos are very high. The higher-ups have no clue of the lack of morals in many of the sales reps and unscrupulous deals they sell. As long as the goals are met that is all that counts. I could go on and on.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Don’t look too close at how the top reps are killing it because you’ll be shocked! What a joke.

    Pros

    Larger sized company with a small company feel
    Excellent job benefits, including stock options for eligible employees
    Great co-workers
    Exciting growth and opportunities

    Cons

    Since the company grew so fast, many of the business processes struggle to keep up. Growth through acquisition can lead to a lot of technical challenges. Some of the way that the company service offerings are designed can be very confusing and complicated.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Try to remember to keep things simple.
