Former Employee - Route Manager

I worked at Ecolab full-time for more than 10 years

Pros

Service van, tools gas,boot allowance, uniform,company controlled pension, medical is ok but not great

Cons

Was great for 15yrs.then new management took over,The upper managers dont know your name or care about you or your life, Ecolab layed us all off, and the Sales people have to wire and plumb the dish machines, many who dont know what a screwdriver is. If you ,are a female watch out, Its the good old boys,Many long hours, not much recognition if your not a sales person,but sales people work 80 hours a week, can only move up if you Drink the Kool AID, one boss couldnt read and has been moved up all threw his career, no more service man positon, just sales/route position,hard to sell to mom and pop, at high prices but if you can they love you, All for Ecolab, Ecolab for ALL.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Hire more WOMEN and there are not to many AFRICAN AMERICAN sales people working for you, The share holders are HAPPY but THE TMs who are THE BACKBONE of Ecolab are not.

    I have been working at Ecolab full-time for more than 5 years

    Pros

    Very stable company that offers a lot of internal opportunity to expand and grow your resume & career. There are opportunities all over the US and the world if interested.

    Cons

    It is a large company that maintains average benefits and has all the expected downfalls of working for a $12B company that employs about 48k people.
