Pros

You get what you put in, decent salary and commissions.
A high paced sales force with monthly if not weekly sales goals.

Cons

Company seems to be more worried about the stock price and or paying its executives.
The ground troops that are the life blood of the company seem to be neglected.
Cutting back payment packages that seem to not make sense.

Advice to Management

Treat all employees with fairness, stop scaling back compensation packages.

    No opinion of CEO

    Pros

    Have company vehicle and gas card. Pay not bad until yearly remapping of territories

    Cons

    Ridiculous workload placed on Route Managers. If you want any sort of a normal life with a family, do not hire on at Ecolab as a Route Manager. Company is driven by greed and they will walk all over you at every juncture. Pay structure and compensation plan very secretive. Good luck getting any sort of a straight answer from financial analysis and planning or even from your own manager regarding miscellaneous unexplained deductions from your paycheck. There is so much wrong about how this company treats the route manger in institutional sales. Sales in the route and territories is where Ecolab gets the majority of their revenue. Yet yearly, Ecolab redistricts/remaps in order to keep your pay at a certain level. Route managers will never be compensated for all of the work that they do. Route managers have to find someone to cover their own territory for vacation time taken even though there are at least 3 levels of management in a given local area branch. Many of the supervisors/managers were promoted not based on merit, but through the good ole boy network. Most supervisors and managers do not have an education beyond that of a high school diploma or maybe some college. There is a huge amount of dead weight in the area management and support centers. I would not wish this job on an enemy unless you are the sort of person who likes to be torn down and walked over.

    Advice to Management

    Stop taking advantage of people. Start recognizing and compensating the revenue makers out in the field. Get rid of all of that dead weight in lower to middle management. Care about the overall health and wealth of all your employees.
