Pros

Great culture Wonderful IT team members Ethical company and CEO

Cons

Too HR heavy; HR is micromanaging too many things and sometimes act like bullys Lots of talk about work-life balance, but no real action in this area Implemented "flex work" program, but continue to deny many requests for job sharing and flexible work arrangements Lack of proper planning to execute projects Understaffed IT Service Desk Poorly executed Nalco merger Very political environment

Advice to Management

Start staffing the IT group appropriately, or you will continue to lose very talented, competent people. Outsourcing is not always the answer... It has already led to high turnover and loss of productivity across the company.

    Pros

    Large market share of most industries, great benefits, welcomed the feedback of employees. Pleasant culture and excellent values.

    Cons

    Did not promote from within, poor utilization of technological resources.

    Advice to Management

    Always keep striving to keep up with competitors in technological advancements and resources, uphold your word on hiring from within.


  2. Not the best place for women to work

    I have been working at Ecolab full-time

    Pros

    Company car, and credit card, autonomy

    Cons

    It's a very male driven corporate culture. Women in the field (institutional division) are treated like novelties. They tried to institute a more inclusive culture by hiring a consulting firm, but failed miserably in the process. The local management team was very clicky and petty.
