    I have been working at Stericycle full-time (More than 8 years)

    Pros

    Stericycle really is a great company to work for. It all depends on the location you work out of, and the dedication you have to your job and the company. I feel like I'm part of a corporate family, and although I do believe the pay is competitive and we could be making more, the support and perks you get when you have a positive relationship with your peers is worth it. Contrary to popular belief, the company cares about its customers and its employees. I know this first hand. Safety is also priority and preached on a daily. I work in operations and although it's not a glamorous job it's one I enjoy and are thankful for.

    Cons

    Pay is competitive but not horrible.

    Advice to Management

    From an operations perspective, management does a good job in keeping us on our toes.

    Pros

    Solid benefits and had great supervisor and manager

    Cons

    Atmosphere is pretty depressing and there was not a lot of opportunity to cross-train and move to another department.

    Would advise adding workout incentives or something that gives back to employees

    Pros

    Friendly coworkers and supervisors and closed on weekends and holidays.

    Cons

    Sr Management is belittling to employees, no opportunity for growth, they do not care about you as a person. Turnover is at an all time high with nothing happening to improve culture.

    Advice to Management

    Get your hands dirty and help out rather than assume you know it all from your golden box. Don’t talk down to employees. Realize turnover is so high after the acquisition and do something to stop it rather than hold the door open as people quit leaving the rest of us to have to pickup the slack!

    I worked at Stericycle full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Good benefits, and the team that worked for me.

    Cons

    They have a "wannabe" culture. They know what they want to have, but can't seem to get there. They really don't care about their people. The Steri-TV is a joke to showcase "here's who we wish we were" (but aren't). Losing customers right and left because they don't know when to stop raising prices.

    Advice to Management

    Top management needs to change. They will never be the company they envision themselves with current management.

    Pros

    Very friendly people. Gives opportunities for overtime. Has some opportunities for cross-training into other departments.

    Cons

    In my department, you get about 23 days a year for time off. Out of the 23 days, you also have your national holidays....so you have to budget your time off when Thanksgiving, Christmas, and New Years comes along (they get 2 days each as the office is closed). You are allotted out of the 23 days, 5 for sick leave (call out minimum 90 minutes to avoid occurrence penalty). If you want to request time off, it is normally denied automatically (makes it impossible to have confidence that you will be approved by the time your vacation arrives). My first 5-day vacation had only 1 -1/2 days approved - and not concurrently. I had to use all my sick leave and call out during my vacation to cover my time off. I had to settle for 2 days without pay - even though I had 3 more days of vacation time left.

    Advice to Management

    Fix your time off request machine. It automatically denies any request and unless we have sick leave available, which is supposed to cover unplanned absences.
