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

Pros

Opportunity to learn about soap

Cons

learning too much about soap

Advice to Management

Be upfront with your new hires. Tell them its a sales AND SERVICE job. Nothing more demoralizing than having to pretend your a marketing person while crawling under a laundry machine pretending to be and expert in electronics and plumbing.

    "Great reputation in marketplace - many surprises discovered, new manager each year, male dominated, very political"

    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.
