    Pros

    I currently work at Ecolab’s Headquarters in Minnesota. I originally pursued a career with Ecolab because it is a historically ethical company with that has values and morals that I could easily get behind. They care for their employees, focus on promoting internally, and moving associates around the company to get a better range of experiences and maintain job satisfaction. I have thoroughly enjoyed being introduced to Ecolab’s culture and learning more about the different ways to can get involved throughout the company.

    Cons

    I was brought on as a contractor, which would be my only area of improvement for Ecolab. There are a lot of things that contractors do not have access to, and a various activities and on-boarding experiences that they are excluded from. However, this seems to be an area of improvement that is already on management’s radar and I have already seen some improvement on this.

    Advice to Management

    I have had excellent experience with my managers and directors. They are receptive to new ideas and always make time to answer questions. That being said, keep up the good work!

    Really enjoyed the people I worked with, my fellow lab technicians, and the work I did. I would have stayed if my commute hadn't been so far away. Good pay.
