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

Pros

You can increase your pay by selling more. Company vehicle and credit card.

Cons

Asked to do more with less. Much more work than when I started. They don't care how long your day is-just get the work done. Salary + Commission. Weekend and Holiday on-call.

Advice to Management

Start billing for after hours service to cut down service calls.And give associates a break.

    I worked at Ecolab full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Company car, gas card, benefits with the exception of health, create your own schedule, great relationships with customers, the outlook for the company.

    Cons

    No life work balance, always on call and I mean always, installations of new equipment and yes, if you sold it or was sold for you, you have to put in all the equipment. Pay is pretty marginal while only making 6% commissions. All the tools and parts in your car that you have to lug around everywhere. Constant sales pressure even though most your day is turning a wrench.

    Advice to Management

    They are doing a good job but can be disconnected at time of the lives of the RSMs and TMs

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

    Pros

    Large company with a large global footprint that has been around for a really long time. Always making money.

    Cons

    Always making money at the expense of employee benefits (reduced medical, less educational assistance, took away vacation payout on termination), stingy on pay, hard to move to different type of role, especially if you start out as an administrative assistant

    Advice to Management

    Take note that your employees are important so treat them that way! Life is not all about profit and making goals.
