    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.

    "STERIS is growing into a mature company slowly."

    Pros

    STERIS is a growing company in an emerging field that offers many opportunities for personal development while maintaining the security of a large organization. The FDA regulated environment is a highly marketable skill. The offices are located in potentially overlooked cities, but this yields a greater opportunity to stretch a salary while still enjoying the benefits of establish communities.

    Cons

    STERIS has yet to evolve into a cohesive company. While it 20 years old, it does not act like an established company in many respects, and lacks infrastructure to support running efficiently. The different locations each have different cultures, and act like the companies they were before STERIS purchased them. Employees will still complain and say the old days were better, or corporate has no idea how to run things, and only care about the stock price. Recent changes in upper management have contributed to a culture where no one is sure what will happen next, and while the changes may be positive and solve some of the above problems, it is difficult in a tough economy to wait and see, and this can cause the best employees to find jobs elsewhere, and the ones with less marketable skills to remain.

    Advice to Management

    Address underlying differences in the culture between locations. Explain changes more effectively, through honest communications of good and bad results direct to th employees. Don't compare the company's benefits to only old style rust-belt manufacturers, or modern medical companies, as neither is an exact match. Recruit past the stereotypes of the locations, and make people want to join the company for positive reasons, not just because they're unemployed from a downsizing.

    Pros

    Great corporate location in Mentor, Ohio; solid company; current executive management is leading the company in the right direction to optimize growth and profits.

    Cons

    Over the past five years, the office "perks" have been minimized - nothing life-changing, but the new CEO cut back a lot of frivolous waste. As a shareholder, I must agree with this approach, but as an employee, it was sad to see some of the changes.

    Advice to Management

    Keep doing what you're doing. I'm enjoying the security, stability, and profitability of our company, and I would recommend STERIS as a responsible employer.

    Pros

    A good company with a solid balance sheet. It is a company where you can still make an impact because it is a realtively young company.

    Cons

    Not a lot of movement at the higher levels and therefore there is opportunity up to a point. On the other hand it is a great place to learn.

    Advice to Management

    More creativity is needed to develop and retain talent. It's too late to act after they tell you they are leaving.
