    My time spent with Ecolab was almost as bad as a rusty trombone.

    Pros

    They fly you here and there, and put you up in decent motels while on their dime which was nice. The majority of the folks that I came in contact with in Elk Grove are great, personable people.

    Cons

    Your time is no longer yours, the big blue machine will own you day and night, they promise you the world and when its all said and done, you make peanuts.

    Advice to Management

    Come down out of your ivory tower in Eagen Minnesota and actually get a feel for what your employees go through on a day to day basis, go on some rides with your RM's and TM's and don't by into all the hog wash your district managers and area managers are feeding you.

    Pros

    The opportunity to build your resume and use the experience to work somewhere else.

    Cons

    Too many to list. Extremely poor pay considering the work load, horrible treatment of territory managers, commissions are taken away and never returned, no opportunity for raises and/or cost of living increases, etc. The $750 annual salary addback is only awarded if one meets the unrealistic sales budget and even this would only equate to a $15,000 increase over 20 years!!! You will never be able to support yourself or a family adequately with this job.

    Advice to Management

    Stop stepping all over the guys who are out there working hard to make your wallet fatter!! Get out there and do some actual work and maybe you'd have a true understanding of why route managers have such low morale.
