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

Pros

Pretty Good benefits. Flexible to a degree

Cons

They will under pay and over work you. Starting at the Service Desk I moved up to NOC Operator responsibilities as well as Management responsibilities and I was still being paid as a Service Desk Analyst. Room for growth is minimal and takes years. Everyone Micromanages and communication is subpar. Also get everything in writing and signed when talking to management because stories change on a daily basis. Job security is null due to new management wanting to outsource and then give extra responsibilities and take personal time away from you. Taking a failing companies management and putting them into a company that was thriving is not the way to go.

Advice to Management

Learn to work together and keep your stories straight. Outsourcing was a known down fall and now you are hiring back in the US at a lower pay rate. Research and discuss with team mates for bigger changes instead of just implementing them. Also have a back bone to stand up for your teammates when able.

    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!!!!!
