I worked at Ecolab full-time

Pros

Good compensation, excellent global presence, most employees below a manager-level are quite competent and hard-working.

Cons

Most jobs are held by men in upper management (director and higher) and these indivudals tend to stay at the company a long time (which is good, in a way) but this means upper progression by others (women or men) is limited.

Advice to Management

Assess whether it makes sense to move new talent into upper management roles - you will gain some new insight and ideas.

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

    Pros

    The people are are great way to spend your time at work. With a great supervisor an employee can accomplish just about anything

    Cons

    Some of the Customer Service Agents are a bit snobby to not only their co workers but to the customer as well

    Advice to Management

    Check your moral and balance of Customer Service Agents to customers calling in ratio! Though it is highly stressful, a good morale is key! Also take into consideration the issues of your employees before they are written up for something that was not their fault

    I worked at Ecolab full-time

    Pros

    Freedom to perform the job tasks; Interact openly/regularly with accounting, engineering, union, lab/quality assurance, maintenance, planning, production, safety & environmental, and the warehouse/logistics; field employees will eventually get rewarded; diversity is encouraged.

    Cons

    unclear job descriptions; job and department goals too high given their own budget, equipment, ergonomic & procurement constraints; reducing the number of full-time employees.

    Advice to Management

    spend more capital on Ecolab's infrastructure vs. Nalco's; make sure all marketing-relating employees increase sales or prune them
