    One of a kind

    EEC (Current Employee)
    Las Vegas, NV

    ProsIm self managed. Don't need to be motivated to get things done. Love independece. Love solving problems and making my customers happy. And enjoy being a person that others can depend on. I guess its the perfect job for me.

    ConsIf you need your hand held, your schedule drawn out for you, a pat on the back every day of your life, co workers to go and gossip with, and need to reason with yourself every morning why you should go out and get things done, then maybe Ecolab might not be for you.

    Advice to Senior ManagementMake room, I'll be there soon.

    Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend – I'm optimistic about the outlook for this company
