    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Be upfront with your new hires. Tell them its a sales AND SERVICE job. Nothing more demoralizing than having to pretend your a marketing person while crawling under a laundry machine pretending to be and expert in electronics and plumbing.

    I worked at Ecolab full-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    Great people at middle to lower levels, good pay & benefits, CEO Baker is very solid and approachable

    Cons

    Lack of advancement, all marketing Directors or VP's hired from outside, no IT infrastructure at all, Sales and Finance run strategy, all senior mgmt on top 4 floors in bldg, no performance improvement or coaching, way too many people changing positions for continuity, focus on short term vs. long term results, still buy laptops vs. lease and keep them for 5 years!, no link between performance reviews and pay increases!

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Listen to gallup poll results, develop talent that you have, invest in IT - CRM, SAP, Pricing Mgmt. etc., relocate business leaders to have offices on same floor as the team they direct, standardize roles & responsibilities across businesses for same title
