    Pros

    Home office is great!, Do what you are supposed to do and they leave you alone. No micro-managing, naggy supervisors or any complaining employees to bother with.
    I don't understand why some people are complaining when Steris is actually hiring in a stagnate job market. Maybe the previous employees couldn't pass the Seris University online testing? It is pretty tough! WOW!!!

    Cons

    Communication could be better from management.

    Advice to Management

    Have an open line of communication from smartphone/device to a smart help desk for any type of issue. Too many phone numbers to remember.

    Pros

    Great opportunities to continuously learn new skills due to customer needs.

    Cons

    Very political so keep your head low and press on.

    Advice to Management

    Some of your best employees may not play the game well so you end up with political hacks and not great employees.

    Pros

    Lenient work hours for office employees. 3% (at the time) match for 401K, great health insurance, safe environment, training

    Cons

    Low morale, quality & customer satisfaction > your satisfaction, LEAN initiatives have gone overboard and include auditing office desks, no 'thank yous' or 'congratulations' for any milestones or achievements, no room for growth

    Pros

    treat employees well, opportunities for advancement, good training

    Cons

    lack of connection with field based employees, and do not allow sufficient time for certain jobs or roles to fully implement

    Advice to Management

    speak more with people on the lower rungs of the ladder, especially those that have left STERIS and come back for their opinions, don't just assume they're back because STERIS is awesome

    Pros

    Can't think of many. At least the paychecks do not bounce

    Cons

    Sadly the upper and middle management don't have a handle on daily operations. Apparently their idea of good management is piling on more work and responsibility without giving you the authority to accomplish your job. In addition pay and benefits are far below the competition. Your reward for working 70 hours a week? A bad review and no pay increase.

    Advice to Management

    Take a good look at how a system works before changing it. Simply cutting staff and loading the work on the remaining personnel is a recipe for disaster over the long term.

    Pros

    Very family orientated company. They have excellent insurance, good vacation time, sick time, a scholarship fund for employee children and yearly raises

    Cons

    Takes a long time for design changes to take affect. Not enough opportunities to earn extra money on commission or bonuses.

    Pros

    I'm not sure there are any pro's...most of the folks who are not in management are wonderful people, but management is a complete debacle with limited potential.

    Cons

    No opportunity for upward mobility, zero internal support and product development, minimal training or support for sales force, inexperienced leadership, unclear company direction, compensation packages that are unjustified compared to day-to-day duties and responsibilities, terrible work/life balance and unrealistic expectations. Only consider Steris if its a last resort and you've exhausted all other job searches.

    Advice to Management

    Quit!
