I worked at Ecolab full-time

Pros

friendly, a good place for a laid back career with good pay and good work life balance. sales focused environment driving it

Cons

wish it was more professional, not much focus on new technologies that can lead to new products, thinking about possible new ways of doing things. not the place if you are a technical person and are looking for a growing career

Advice to Management

More strategic thinking outside comfort zone needed, better HR management needed

    I worked at Ecolab as a contractor (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    The best politics ever- even politicans can learn from Ecolab Canada management. They make CA$ like hell [in billions literally] paint a very rosy outlook in interview, then show you the dirty reality after you sign the paper.

    Cons

    The worst spenders. Almost every dept head is a dictator. out of 670 employees 70% will leave TODAY if they can get another job. The entire Toronto facility [a health hazard] is falling apart from the doors to washroom sewers-you name it. zero balance work/life. entire customer service & credit dept DESERVES to be fired. Almost every dept works against the other. u got suggestions & complaints? then HR Canada smiles in front and BITES ur butt the second u turn. people fired after 25 years of service as politics got to them.

    Advice to Management

    they love wasting paper and $, no problemo!

    Negative Outlook
    Disapproves of CEO

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

    Pros

    company car and credit card. It is easy to pay yourself in other ways since you cant get the company to pay correctly

    Cons

    too many hours, pay is always incorrect and you get scolded if you try to get it fixed.

    Upper management is always trying to get more out of you for less money.

     Company also tracks employees through GPS on cell phones, computers and cars

    Sales managers are dependant on overworked under appreciated service techs for their success.

    Advice to Management

    Realize that Sales and service are backbone to the company and make sure you pay your people correctly
