Pros

If you get in through the Finance Rotational Program, you get to move around the organization three times and learn a lot about how Ecolab conducts its' business. Managers are very supportive in growth and development of their employees. There are a lot of lunch and learn sessions done where you get to learn about an aspect of the business or hear a speaker talk about their area of expertise.

Cons

It is sometimes difficult to get promotions or move around due to limited vacant positions.

    Cons

    Prior Culture and Inclusion efforts to drive up employee engagement has all but died. In a shared services area, the competition inside the company is creating divisivness and/or apathy. After years of liking the job, then, when a true look and push towards inclusion took hold, loving to come to work - all to be destroyed by concentrating more on the technical aspects of integration versus the people side of integration. I expect productivity, quality, and many other things to suffer.

    Advice to Management

    Remember - the best chemicals and services are worthless without an engaged workforce. People are loosing the motivation to make things great.

    Pros

    Great benefits, it is fun, good friendships are built within the organization, micro-management is to a bare minimum. Fully expensed with company car, gas card and corporate card. Pension, but I don't think they offer that anymore. Big company so stability seems to be there and growing!

    Cons

    Compensation of the SSDM position sucks, growth opportunity for promotions gets pretty stagnant and when promotions are administered there is no real protocol to how those are given. Sometimes people are brought in for interviews and sometimes people are just "given" the promotion. The attitude is always, "what have you done for me today?" Constant realignments and changes to commission structures throughout the company that inevitably just limits your commission potential. Hate the way promotions and "raises" are given as they all are dependent on what you made the previous year; there should be some sort of floor salary for each promotion.
