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 ManagementAdvice

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 ManagementAdvice

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

    Pros

    Company vehicle and fuel card

    Cons

    Ecolab expects you to work for free. Expect to be asked many times to service customers that are not in your territory, which means taking you away from your own territory, which means you wont make your commisions. Dont dare complain or you'll be branded as "not a team player". Expect to be on call 24/7 (including holidays) to service customers WITH NO COMPENSATION. You will not be paid for any "on call" service calls. YOU WORK FOR FREE! You will expected to cover multiple territorys about every 4th weekend "weekend rotation" and you will not be paid to do it. Management gives no support. If you voice any opinion or complaint to your managment team you will be branded as a "cancer" to the group. Stay away from Ecolab, stay very far away!

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Try putting customers and employees concerns ahead of shareholder concerns
