    No opinion of CEO

    I worked at Ecolab full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    The residual commissions on the high margin items were tolerable.

    Cons

    The leadership and the field team were often at a disconnect in terms of expectations. Frequently cancelled team building type activities in the field due to budget constraints despite maintaining an enormous profit margin. There is no room to grow and paths to advancement are not always clear and often political.

    Advice to Management

    People are your first asset. If you want to keep your team around you have to allow them to grow and engage them and interact.
