    Does not care about employees.

    Client Service Manager (Current Employee)
    Houston, TX

    ProsI haven't enjoyed working here since before my company was acquired by Stericycle but Stericycle made it worse.

    ConsThey cut Christmas Bonuses. They require you to go out of your way to do your job but they don't supply you with the necessary tools. They make it nearly impossible to get a raise or a promotion but you can apply for other jobs to get an insignificant increase in pay.

    Advice to Senior ManagementGive your employees more incentives. Paper Christmas ornaments are an insulting to say we work off close to minimum wage.

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend

    ProsVery friendly environment. Fascinating business and plenty of growth potential for the business.
