    I worked at Ecolab full-time (more than 10 years)

    Pros

    Good benefits and pay. The other techs are great guys. Technical assistants in Texas are great guys too.

    Cons

    Constant changing of procedure. They care more about sales than customer service. Mangers are out of touch with the technicians. We are treated like the lowest common denominator when we are in fact the primary source of revenue. Spent 15 years and worked in three different states for them and only saw one technician promoted and he was later fired. They would rather bring in pizza parlor managers and pay them low wages to be area managers and keep the techs in the field selling. You have to sell $20000 a month or you get written up. Creates a environment where techs are focused on sales instead of providing service for the customer. Too many employees who do redundant jobs in corporate and bring in no money for the company.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Utilize the long term employees to grow the divisions. Fire the old school regional managers who's parents got them in the company many years ago. They just kill morale. I had one say at a meeting to the whole crew "Ecolab is like the mob. We don't care about your problems just get out there and bring in the money". Or my favorite "communication is me talking and you listening". That was such a motivation. Too find another job that is. I feel like I wasted 15 years of my life.
