Approves of CEO

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

Pros

Great people at middle to lower levels, good pay & benefits, CEO Baker is very solid and approachable

Cons

Lack of advancement, all marketing Directors or VP's hired from outside, no IT infrastructure at all, Sales and Finance run strategy, all senior mgmt on top 4 floors in bldg, no performance improvement or coaching, way too many people changing positions for continuity, focus on short term vs. long term results, still buy laptops vs. lease and keep them for 5 years!, no link between performance reviews and pay increases!

Advice to Management

Listen to gallup poll results, develop talent that you have, invest in IT - CRM, SAP, Pricing Mgmt. etc., relocate business leaders to have offices on same floor as the team they direct, standardize roles & responsibilities across businesses for same title

    I worked at Ecolab full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Compensation and work/life balance. Flexible work schedule.

    Cons

    Associates often changing jobs/titles. If you like change, and a new supervisor every year, RD&E might be the place for you.

    Advice to Management

    Senior management seemed to be disconnected with lower level associates.
