    Pros

    Semi-flexible scheduling, phone, vehicle, and license provided. Insurance and clothing allowance provided as well as a saving program with employer matching contributions.

    Cons

    Horrible work/life balance (your customers will own you) , Collections for delinquent accounts, and no commissions for eliminating pests or unpaid invoices.

    Advice to Management

    Clean up the commission scheme, offer a good base salary. Stop letting Doug Baker make millions off stock buy-backs while normal people struggle to make the wage quoted to them from HR.

    Pros

    None, no life or family life,no fun

    Cons

    All the reviews for territory Managers are the same, No work/ life balance, if someone posts they have a life outside Ecolab,they are nuts,you work 60 hour work week, you work nights, you get trouble calls you must handle ASAP, at night or day or weekend, management is clueless, and you get to ruin your cloths under dirty Greasy Dishmachines,you cover vacant territories for no extra pay, and you work on the weekends so you can go on vacations, and you cover for others vacations, so you make about 12 dollars an hour, so work work work, and when you finally start to make decent money your stuck and you work 365 days a year, it's great for a single guy with no family or kids, or girlfriend , so read all the reviews and it's the same theme, no life.

    Advice to Management

    Your a joke and you can't fix anything, your company will fail sometime soon

    Pros

    The work schedule is flexible and provides a great way to balance work and family. Great benefits.

    Cons

    Work hours are unpredictable because at times you have to work longer hours than planned for to deal with customer issues.

    Advice to Management

    There is no advice to management at this time. The company does an excellent job with the training of their managers and provide all the necessary resources to carry out your daily duties.
