Pros

Work/life balance (for non-field personnel)
Flexible hours
Allowances to new parents/options for new parents (flex time etc.)

Cons

If you are a field person (sales, operations, etc.) - Ecolab can be a challenging place to work for. I think our field and sales folks are overworked most of the time and are exhausted by the demands. They must fulfill quotas (customer visits, etc.) and yet still meet the customer's "demands" as well.

Advice to Management

Look at your field folks. The high turnover rate is hurting the whole company.

    Pros

    Great benefits, generous Superannuation policy, company vehicle and fuel card, fantastic co-workers, that is, the ones that you can trust once you get past the climate of fear and suspicion

    Cons

    Corporate arrogance flowing down from those above you that think that they know best and what the hell would you know anyway. The management team have no idea how to really listen to their workers, have a sales focus that does not seem to understand the value of their staff and customers, this company is run by bean counters that have lost touch with the real world and what customer service is. The great benefits will not be there forever, if the management style does not change, they won't have any customers soon.

    Advice to Management

    Listen to your staff, Listen to your staff, Listen to your staff, Listen to your staff, Listen to your staff, encourage honest and open dialogue. Stop being so arrogant and show some humility.

    Pros

    Good benefits,talented,helpful co-workers for the most part,company car and gas card,access to the most technologically advanced equipment and solutions in the business.

    Cons

    You will have no personal life,ever.Even when you aren't working during the week you are technically on call which means you'll always be on edge thinking you might be getting a call.The work itself isn't too bad.You will however get filthy,cut,bruised bloody and burned and then expected to be a "sales rep" as well.You'll work long days and still be behind,deal with angry customers,horribly made lease machines,and moronic general managers from chain restaurants.Is every day horrible?,no but the stress load at this job can get to be way too much.Also you'll grow too hate cardboard because you will have TONS of parts,equipment and dispensers shipped to your house,whether you have room for it or not.If this was a 9-5 job i honestly think I wouldn't mind it so much but the pay doesn't compensate for the amount of work we do.

    Advice to Management

    Leadership unfortunately isn't really there.I'm lucky to have a great supervisor however upper management is a joke.They just b.s. numbers to make themselves look better and when they still fail they look below to blame others.
