    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 (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.

    Unprofessional management. Difficult to maintain integrity in this environment. Low pay results in employees with little to no experience/competence. Employees are overworked and under pressure to cut corners. Money is the only driver for this company.

    Clean up your act.

    I have been working at STERIS

    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.
