    I worked at STERIS full-time for more than 10 years

    Pros

    Some interesting products and medical device experience

    Cons

    1- Limited opportunity for advancement
    2 - Marketing makes Engineering decisions
    3 - Lack of respect for technical people

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    It seems pointless to offer any advice to management. As with many modern corporations the cult of the MBA runs the company instead of engineers which limits the ability of the companies to create new products.

    I worked at STERIS full-time

    Pros

    Many people are working diligently to "do the right thing" and improve methods/processes/procedures. Fair pay. Great benefits.

    Cons

    Lack of vision, both tactically and strategically. Muddled thinking on long term objectives.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Clarify what STERIS is, and what it's working towards.

    I worked at STERIS full-time for more than 8 years

    Pros

    Very good benefits, feeling of being connected to healthcare industry, interesting projects.

    Cons

    Senior mgmt continues to struggle with decision making. Everything becomes a priority hence nothing meaningful is completed. Lots of great ideas stay on the white board and don't move forward. Far too many silos.
    Too many critical customer facing departments go begging for resources while other departments are bloated.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Learn the difference between management and leadership. Do the right things and invest in mission critical resources.
    Stop just talking about being the industry leader and demonstrate that you are.
    Instill a sense of urgency and stop rewarding complacency.
