    I have been working at Ecolab full-time (more than a year)

    Pros

    Company Car (They will deny high priced repairs)
    Gas card
    Decent bonus (DM will scream about bonus for ten months)
    Laptop

    Cons

    Out of touch high level managers. Or they don't care.
    TR's treated with comtempt and condescension by people sitting in cubicles
    Service technician position sold as a sales job
    Work life balance not respected
    Too many "emergency projects" pop up every month
    Arrogant company. They are NEVER the problem.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Stop treating employees like your doing them a favor. They are making YOU the money!!
    Ask for REAL feedback from field employees, not these Ecolab friendly softball surveys to get the answers you want to hear. Stop over promising customers anything they want just to get the money. YOU don't do the actual work. Since Bill Gates owns 10 % of Ecolab's stock, I wonder if he'd be happy to learn how employees really feel? Your DMS and AMs play favorites and encourage backstabbing and undermining. It's all about who can make them look good. Where does this pathetic mentality come from? The top? This could be a great company to work for, but with business growing and stock price steady, why change?

    I worked at Ecolab full-time

    Pros

    Lots of room to move laterally to new positions, not as easy to move vertically. Tend to hire internally. Lots of locations and plants and you are encouraged to move around (if that's what you're looking for).

    Cons

    Advancements to new positions do not come with corresponding salary increases to account for cost-of-living, increased responsibility, etc. Cumbersome shifts in vision, etc are attempted but things rarely change on the ground floor. Only certain areas get paid attention to, big projects quickly fall out of style and are left floundering.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Provide organizational support to all employees, not just "pet projects".
