Look elsewhere if you are seeking a progressive, innovative organization

R&D Manager (Former Employee)
Eagan, MN

ProsNice facilities. Decent pay and benefits. Strong market access.

ConsEcolab is $12B global company stuck in the mindset of a $500M St Paul centric company. They are not a company that embraces change. They've outgrown the days when personal relationships can be the basis for all exchange of information, but refuse to acknowledge this and won't invest in updated IT systems. The numerous long term employees yearn for the good old days, and wonder why any change is necessary. Passive-aggressive behavior is far too common, even at the highest levels in the organization. Budgets are managed on a quarter-by-quarter basis, always under the specter of corporate budget pullbacks, so successful long term projects are a rarity.

Advice to Senior ManagementOpen your eyes and invest in the people and systems that will bring you out of the 1990s

No, I would not recommend this company to a friend

HR… No, I would not recommend this company to a friend – I'm optimistic about the outlook for this company… More
