    Disapproves of CEO

    I have been working at STERIS full-time (More than 3 years)

    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    Outdated software used for documenting work orders.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.

    Pros

    Its a great company, pretty flexible hours, above average pay, about average benefits.

    Cons

    Going through a lot of transition, to much upper level leadership. They seem to create work at times to justify their position. Typical larger company red tape and bureaucracy.

    Advice to Management

    Figure out this transition from all the company buy outs and implement it and stick with a plan.
