    I worked at STERIS full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    For a certain person, this is a great company with stability. Job expectations were clearly defined. Benefits were great. Really great work/life balance. You leave your job at the door.

    Cons

    The culture is old fashioned. The pay was not good and the opportunity for growth felt strangely nonexistent. Customer service is not necessarily a path to growth within the company.

    Pros

    Great People to work with, great products, great market

    Cons

    Not results oriented. Employees with real measurable results should be promoted and rewarded. Hard to find accountable leaders.

    Advice to Management

    Please stop promoting people that agree with everything that you say. Not a good culture for long term success. Please insist in YOY improvements, not excuses. Example: Manufacturing Results

    I worked at STERIS full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    Pay is comparable to other companies, decent benefits, free coffee, clean work environment.

    Cons

    Management with zero people skills, looking to micromanage and be on a power trip and not listening to their employees. Management will ask for the opinion of their employees, but will not take any of what they said into account and then make changes that negatively impact the department regardless of the opinions of the people that the changes will actually affect. Sometimes just because someone has management... experience, it does not mean they will be a good fit for a department and STERIS often does not promote the correct people to internal positions. They are more likely to hire external candidates just because someone has more experience on paper than to promote an excellent internal employee with the leadership mentality. There are more incompetent people than competent and the people who are good at their job are not given any incentive to keep working hard. The HR department is also very unhelpful and make it clear that they do not care at all about the employees' concerns. Also, no opportunity to work from home.

    Advice to Management

    Hire people who will actually be good managers. Stop micromanaging. Get on board with allowing people to work from home occasionally. STERIS was a great place to work in the past, but now the environment and culture is changing and they really do not care about keeping the good employees around.
