Solid Company

Anonymous Employee (Current Employee)

I have been working at Ecolab

ProsEcolab is a growth company with a long history of solid stock performance. There is a good management team in place and there is opportunity to grow if you perform well. Ecolab is also a global company and international is the fastest growing area of the company.

ConsThe training program is improving but in large part one's success in the past has been dependent upon on the job training and those who excelled moved up in the organization. There have been great strides in this area recently but there is still room for improvement. Anybody looking to join the company should negotiate a high salary coming in as annual salary increases do occur but I feel that certain positions in the company aren't as well compensated as they should be in comparison to the market.

Advice to Senior ManagementFocus on training, competitive compensation

Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend
