    I have been working at Ecolab full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Very strong company in terms of financial strength and market share. Lot of bright people in the site management, not at corporate.

    Cons

    Lack of true leadership in the senior management. No room for career advancement internally. Career advancement is not based on meritocracy, but instead candidates were chosen based on who sits next to your office and who can help you politically within the organization. Too much turnover in the corporate senior management that cause instability in the organization.

    Advice to Management

    Need to do better job to retain talent. HR is the weakest pillar.

    I worked at Ecolab full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    Pay, benefits, and location. Great co-workers, always willing to share knowledge. CEO. Community involvement. Good training opportunities.

    Cons

    Culture and inclusion - not so much. They want one type of worker - just say "yes." Passive-aggressiveness is alive and well. Didn't feel I could be open and honest. Can't seem to figure out the right level of process - they are either too bureaucratic or processes don't exist at all. Not everyone gets work/life balance.

    Advice to Management

    Change is good, provided it is made wisely and carefully. Recognize people for their strengths. Work for more diversity.
