    Pros

    Great management teams and leadership, upward mobility, competitive salary with rewards and recognition for over achievement, company car, flexible schedule, achievable goals and budgets, excellent ongoing training and support. Sales team is equipped with iPads with apps that help with amazing presentations to customers and effective communications and organization. Ecolab a Healthcare listens to the customer and adapts products and services according t the customer's needs and requests. Ecolab Healthcare also listens to the Account Executives working in the field. It's great to know that my opinions and thoughts make a difference in helping the company improve and progress. This is the best outside sales position I have held in my career.

    Cons

    New products released before they are ready sometimes have caused issues with customer trust relationships. More vigorous testing needs to be done before launches. Very large territories with need for increased travel. Windshield time without phone activity is unproductive time.

    Advice to Management

    Continue to hire talented, diverse and experienced sales professionals to grow our division. This is an exciting time for the Healthcare Division and we are an important focus for Ecolab due to our past and future growth and successes.

    I have been working at Ecolab full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    I can work whenever I want. You basically get a list of things that need done for the month. Sales calls. Service existing customers. Meet your sales number. I can go fishing in the morning and wok later in the day. I can take my kids to the amusement park on a Monday when it's not busy. As long as you keep yourself on track to get your work done you will never have a complaint. It's all results driven so if you can get the right results working 4 days a week, that's enough.

    Cons

    It's a big company so that adds a lot of layers. Things that you think should take a few minutes to solve can take multiple emails to multiple people. It's no worse than any other major company but is still a con of working for someone so large.

    Advice to Management

    I have none. My district manager all the way up to my regional manager has the same opinion. Do the things you are asked to do in your position and we don't care when or how much you work.

    I have been working at Ecolab full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Building your own customer base with the trust from upper management to drive your own decision making. Given the freedom to go as far as you want in the company based on the hard work you contribute, and not having to depend on others to get you there.

    Cons

    I have been with the company for almost 2,years and I have yet to find one. Let you know if I do.

    Advice to Management

    If it aint broken, don't fix it.
