I have been working at Ecolab full-time (More than 5 years)

Pros

Very honest company, contributing to overall society with food safety efforts, personable people, forward thinking, high integrity,

Cons

Typical pressures of hitting numbers for any public company, must be willing to relocate to advance very far,

Advice to Management

Need to upgrade systems infrastructure. Too much work being done by human power. Takes away from critical thinking.

    I have been working at Ecolab full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Company car, computer, not on a clock

    Cons

    You work for free 75% of the time. They tell you you are a sales person and pay you a straight commision, but you will spend 12 hours a day fixing dishmachines, plumbing, doing electric, etc.... All for free. If you are married get a lawyer because you will be divorced. If you move up it only gets worse! Benefits get worse every year. On call 24 hours a day Monday through Friday then one weekend a month as well. Managers use scare tactics and threats to get you out selling. The more you give the more they want. DO NOT WORK FOR THIS COMPANY!!!!!!

    Advice to Management

    Stop trying to reinvent the wheel and focus on making things better for the field people. Happy employees WILL SELL MORE!!!!!

    I have been working at Ecolab full-time (More than 8 years)

    Pros

    Industry leaders, smart people, many international locations, great travel, Good upward mobility. The company is on the cutting edge of technology with very not much competition. Nalco merger was the best thing they did in the last 15 years.

    Cons

    Very top heavy, many VPs and Directors, average compensation and benefits, political environment, little autonomy, HQd in St. Paul, Minnesota.

    Advice to Management

    Need to practice what you preach. Flatten the organization, provide more autonomy and improve benefits
