I have been working at Ecolab full-time (More than 10 years)

Pros

Most of my teammates would do anything to help each other. This is probably because people tend to bond when under siege.

Cons

Inept management. Benefits and compensation stagnation or shrinkage. Untrustworthy. Their is always an alternative motive to everything they do. They do not believe in leveling with their people. Field personnel are treated like criminals or as if they are the enemy.

Advice to Management

Promote managers based on their ability to develop people. Drop the practice of management through fear and intimidation.

    I worked at Ecolab full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    Pay, benefits, and location. Great co-workers, always willing to share knowledge. CEO. Community involvement. Good training opportunities.

    Cons

    Culture and inclusion - not so much. They want one type of worker - just say "yes." Passive-aggressiveness is alive and well. Didn't feel I could be open and honest. Can't seem to figure out the right level of process - they are either too bureaucratic or processes don't exist at all. Not everyone gets work/life balance.

    Advice to Management

    Change is good, provided it is made wisely and carefully. Recognize people for their strengths. Work for more diversity.

    Pros

    Company vehicle and fuel card

    Cons

    Ecolab expects you to work for free. Expect to be asked many times to service customers that are not in your territory, which means taking you away from your own territory, which means you wont make your commisions. Dont dare complain or you'll be branded as "not a team player". Expect to be on call 24/7 (including holidays) to service customers WITH NO COMPENSATION. You will not be paid for any "on call" service calls. YOU WORK FOR FREE! You will expected to cover multiple territorys about every 4th weekend "weekend rotation" and you will not be paid to do it. Management gives no support. If you voice any opinion or complaint to your managment team you will be branded as a "cancer" to the group. Stay away from Ecolab, stay very far away!

    Advice to Management

    Try putting customers and employees concerns ahead of shareholder concerns
