Don't judge a book by it's cover.
Engineering (Current Employee) – Mentor, OH – 21 February 2017
On the surface it may seem like a decent company; Shiny building, fancy recruitment videos, decent stock performance. Don't be fooled. This place is a career dead end.
Management is ineffective. If you happen to be motivated, you will not be recognized because there is not a followed performance appraisal system. Promotion from within is rare. Non-performers will survive on the backs of the performers.
The tools given are outdated and unsupported which makes it impossible to stay sharp. I have lost the competitive edge since working there. They have reached a point that updating any systems is a Herculean task because of years of refusal to invest in modern systems.
Limited on-boarding puts the onus on the new employee to get up to speed. There is very little continuous training/development. You will more than likely have to learn an out-of-date software.
The only well run divisions are the recently acquired ones. If you work for one of these companies, hope that they are hands off. All company growth is by acquisition and on the back of legacy products. None from organic new product development.
Wellness programs, benefits, culture have been eroding over many years.
You will never see STERIS on a "best workplace" list because they refuse to participate. For obvious reasons.
