If the majority of the management think they embody the essence of culture & inclusion, how come the majority of mid to lower level employees feel alienated by it?

    Pros

    Great opportunity to work with great people and great customers.

    Cons

    Over recent years something went terribly wrong. Management, Officers and Board members have no commitment to ethics or God. They believe everyone can be bought for a price.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Job 15:34 - For the company of the godless will be barren, and fire will consume the tents of those who love bribes.

    I worked at Ecolab

    Pros

    Ecolab is a relatively stable company, compensation is about industry average, the training programs are decent (LSS, Culture & Inclusion). I was given a chance to work in new areas of supply chain and learn from experienced associates, there are still some good people there.

    Cons

    Talent drain is non-stop, it seems like if a person is half-way competent they spend a couple years there, get frustrated with the antiquated systems and thinking and move on to bigger and better things. Supply chain is looked at as strictly a cost-center, therefore the amount of investment and focus within the company is commensurate with that approach.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Base promotions on actual merit, follow-through on programs (there were at least a half-dozen in my time there with big kick-offs that faded within 9 months), pick a strategy in supply chain and stick to it.
