    Pros

    Work life balance is great. Management seems to really care about employees. Customer first mentality is apparent. Coworkers are reliable and team oriented.

    Cons

    On boarding and training were very minimal. They are not very technologically advanced and have many manual processes for data trending and analysis. Far too many websites for employee use and trying to determine where you go for what.

    Advice to Management

    Keep the positive morale up, maybe focus on technology that could save you and staff time to focus on other endeavors.

    Pros

    Very good work life balance

    Cons

    The highest level of management is not qualified. They don't stretch themselves or their employees. They surround themselves with their friends instead of highly qualified employees. High potential employees don't last as the pace is too slow. No accountability required. Executives who miss plan are not removed. This company will be sold and profits will soar.

    Advice to Management

    Hold your executives accountable. Figure out what your strategy is and execute it. Overhaul your executive staff.

    Pros

    The people are amazing and very friendly. You get to work on different projects and occasionally attend conferences, which are a great learning opportunity.

    Management does not always communicate the status or outline of a project on a regular basis. Upward mobility can be stagnant.

    Pros

    The hours are good and room for overtime. Great facilities and access to parts/tools needed to do the job.

    Cons

    Needs to work on management skills. There is not enough communication between managers and their employees. Pay does not match what a person's skills are. Should be paid based on merits, not a percentage that other employees receive and are not at the same skill level or time with the company.

    Advice to Management

    Talk to your employees and push for a better system for pay increases.

    I have been working at STERIS (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Growing company, 2017 outlook looks good. Short staffing/turnover will cause some serious overtime work in the next year. I have always had a great manager who you can actually talk to about issues.
    Great benefits, but bonus compensation outside of salary is lacking.

    Cons

    Limited opportunity for advancement unless you live in Mentor OH or Montgomery AL.
    Training programs need some work.
    Outdated software used for documenting work orders.

    Advice to Management

    Focus on employees more and reward those who get the job done every time.
