    I worked at STERIS full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    The CEO seems like he really cares for the employee.

    Cons

    Management looks to cut pay in long-time loyal workers, by "Cleaning out the higher pay then restructure to lower with same requirements?" Toxic workplace, scare tactics. Mentor Ohio.

    Advice to Management

    The balance between management to hourly is "One Sided" Management see's employee's as "Disposable Labor".

    Pros

    make own schedule, company vehicle, local travel, very flexible with time

    Advice to Management

    Get rid of the managers that don't have field experience. Don't promote them to regional managers.

    Pros

    Not much other than benefits. Corporate isn't involved where they should be.

    Cons

    HR in Acquisitions leaves a lot to be desired, rude, thinking they are above all. Not very truthful and not trustworthy!! Talk to employees and listen.

    Advice to Management

    Take a good look at what is going on. There are always two sides.

    I worked at STERIS full-time

    Pros

    Job security if your competent

    Cons

    Do not expect equal treatment if your a minority. Pay is less and opportunities are not the same. Take a look around and see how many people in management positions are people of color. 6 out of my 8 reviews were exceeded expectations and I brought in the most billable revenue for my district.

    Advice to Management

    Worked at Steris for 8 years and never broke over 53k . New company in same area for similar work offered 80k starting. Meanwhile other employees made way more. When trying to apply for Associate DSM position interviewer acted uninterested and distracted. Actually heard her shuffling papers in the background. Stop treating your employees like criminals and respect the value they add to the company. Pay them appropriately and people who have great yearly reviews should be considered for new opportunities.
