    Pros

    Good pay for straight out of college. Large company so opportunities are out there if you actively search for them

    Cons

    Management is cut-throat and look out for themselves. Not an attractive place for young people because culture is old school and not a fun place to work. Expected to work long hours

    Look out for your employees

    Pros

    Work life balance in most positions. Financially healthy company. I've had good managers for the most part. New headquarters is nice.

    If you come into Ecolab right out of college you are compensated much below your market value. Value outside talent more.

    I have been working at Ecolab full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Ecolab has a high integrity culture, and all around good working enviornment. Many jobs here have a flexible work schedule as well.

    Cons

    Long hours is pretty much the only the only con I can think of. Ecolab is a growing business and there is a lot of work to be done. Sometimes, they expect too much from their employees. However, the amount work expected is probably in line with other fortune 500 companies.
