    I worked at Stericycle as a contractor for less than a year

    Pros

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

    Cons

    Management leadership isn't on the same page. We seemed to be reacting to situations rather than being proactive. There wasn't enough communications between the different leaders in the different business areas.
