    I have been working at Sterigenics full-time (more than 5 years)

    Pros

    A lot of opportunities here to advance, if you apply yourself. Management is the best here. They will work with you, with what ever the issue, just be truthful.

    Cons

    Monthly meetings, are a bust. THEY ARE MANDATORY! Even on your days off, you have to been in. Shortest meeting ever, lasted 10mins. On my DAY OFF! And if you do not attend, you get a disciplinary point against you. Scheduling sucks as well. If I need a weekend off, I have to use my vacation time. No updates if the facility is getting 12 Hr shifts, or weekends off! We are left in the dark, with that issue. There are some departments that have this rivalry. Argument amongst argument. But it is all do to one man.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Change the Monthly meeting policy, so that all employees do not get a point counted against them. If the meeting happens to fall on their day off. Change the scheduling for the shifts. Weekends off is preferred, but would settle for 12 Hr shifts. And the walls need to be brought down between departments.

    Pros

    The pay is decent. Plenty of parking for employees. Shift work is nice when you're off. You never see any management after hours.

    Cons

    Safety is an issue sometimes regarding procedures. The maintenance team cuts a lot of corners. Managers aren't involved in what goes on during off shifts. A lot of our training is just a paperwork exercise. We learn very quickly how to cover our butts.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Lock out the overrides for equipment. Fire any maintenance manager that shows operators how to manually operate equipment without it showing on the computer system.

    I have been working at Sterigenics full-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    I like what we do, I like helping people by sterilizing foods, medical products, etc. I enjoy the juggling act and prioritization of when things need to be done.

    Cons

    Benefits used to be good, getting worse every year. Pay is bad, they brag about how successful the company is but only give a 3% max raise once a year. Considering everything we need to know, do, and being around a radiation source you would think you'd make more than $14 an hr, as the system operator.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Share some of the wealth you all enjoy. We break our backs for you and this company. Give us better pay, better raises. 3% raise, once a year is..a...joke.

    Pros

    Long-term employees create family like atmosphere. Most are willing to multitask to get the job done.

    Cons

    Changes at the corporate level make it not as much fun to work there anymore. More responsibilities, no more pay.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    While it is great that the steps are being taken to make items like training and procedure updates online, it would be appreciated if the kinks could be worked out first. A year after implementation and they are still not working right.

    Pros

    Good local management. The small number of employee's at the location made for a tight-knit group that really allowed you to have an impact on day-to-day activities.

    Cons

    Compared to the rest of the medical device industry, the margins in contract sterilization are much smaller. The resources for training and carreer development were much smaller.
