    Nice office, good company, growing on a good foundation.

    Pros

    Company car, Good products, some managers actually care about you and try to get fair work conditions but it never goes anywhere.

    Cons

    Overworked employees, no work life balance, sales reps are also the engineers, politics and poor pay, corporate team full of themselves

    Advice to Management

    Overworked staff can never be productive, don't push the ones that truly care away!

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

    Pros

    Some very good products, supported by knowledgeable and dedicated sales/support teams and significant investments in R&D to ensure a continuous pipeline of new innovations.

    Cons

    Too much time lost in serving the information needs of the corporate body and not serving the needs of customers.

    Advice to Management

    Spend more time looking for ways to improve the customer experience and not looking for ways to make things easier/cheaper for Ecolab

    I worked at Ecolab UK full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    I worked at Ecolab for around 6 months. I was working at ISS pest control which ecolab aquired.
    I must say the set up was brilliant. I visited Caerphilly and was amazed with the dedicated team. Everyone was very helpful. ISS, RENTOKIL and CANNON PEST CONTROL. Have a long way to go.
    I only left as I decided to start up my own business.

    Cons

    Great training. Dedicated team. If you needed anything you got it.

    Advice to Management

    Keep running a good ship.
