    Pros

    The company has some good profits and growth, new products and new ideas coming out all the time. If you perform well you get a steady raise and promotions. Challenging environment, good set of coworkers.

    Cons

    Most of the idea coming out have to do with improving efficiency, and are not very consistent, correct one day wrong the next kind of stuff. Although the company grows and shows larger and larger profits they have an expectation for you to cut your overtime while doing more and more work and more and more requirements coming from the top.

    Pros

    My manager is a great mentor to me and is always encouraging me to expand my knowledge by sharing his.

    Cons

    As with any large public company, there are office politics that must be played in order to get ahead.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Continue to nuture and foster employees who are exceling to encourage their loyalty and committment to STERIS.

    Pros

    Home office is great!, Do what you are supposed to do and they leave you alone. No micro-managing, naggy supervisors or any complaining employees to bother with.
    I don't understand why some people are complaining when Steris is actually hiring in a stagnate job market. Maybe the previous employees couldn't pass the Seris University online testing? It is pretty tough! WOW!!!

    Cons

    Communication could be better from management.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Have an open line of communication from smartphone/device to a smart help desk for any type of issue. Too many phone numbers to remember.

    Pros

    treat employees well, opportunities for advancement, good training

    Cons

    lack of connection with field based employees, and do not allow sufficient time for certain jobs or roles to fully implement

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    speak more with people on the lower rungs of the ladder, especially those that have left STERIS and come back for their opinions, don't just assume they're back because STERIS is awesome

    Current Employee - Account Manager

    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

    Overall a good place to work. You are not overwhelmed with the amount of work you are given. Supervisors are fair and appreciative of hard work.

    Cons

    The people are not particularly friendly and are very cliquey. A large amount of people slack off and take their job for granted.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Place a higher premium on retaining employees that work hard by compensating them fairly and offering them an opportunity for advancement.

    Pros

    Large company with good products. Competitive pricing and improving management at all levels. Were becoming more aggressive with compensation in order to compete with other medical device and equipment companies.

    Cons

    Like most big companies, got heavy handed with reports and sales meetings at times. While it was good they were trying to become more competitive in healthcare, there seemed to be a shifting of direction from year to year.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Pay to hire great people and then let them do their jobs. Judge the performance and worry less about reports and sales calls and sales meetings.

    An interesting and sometimes challenging place to work

    Current Employee - Anonymous Employee  in  Mentor, OH
    Current Employee - Anonymous Employee in Mentor, OH

    Pros

    A good company with a solid balance sheet. It is a company where you can still make an impact because it is a realtively young company.

    Cons

    Not a lot of movement at the higher levels and therefore there is opportunity up to a point. On the other hand it is a great place to learn.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    More creativity is needed to develop and retain talent. It's too late to act after they tell you they are leaving.
