I have been working at Ecolab full-time for more than 10 years

Pros

Most of my teammates would do anything to help each other. This is probably because people tend to bond when under siege.

Cons

Inept management. Benefits and compensation stagnation or shrinkage. Untrustworthy. Their is always an alternative motive to everything they do. They do not believe in leveling with their people. Field personnel are treated like criminals or as if they are the enemy.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Promote managers based on their ability to develop people. Drop the practice of management through fear and intimidation.

    I worked at Ecolab full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

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

    Cons

    Ecolab 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 ManagementAdvice

    Open your eyes and invest in the people and systems that will bring you out of the 1990s
