    I worked at Ecolab full-time for more than 5 years

    Pros

    People, customers, and training. Remuneration is fair for this industry.

    Cons

    Cannot trust the leadership team. They sell the work-life balance but the opposite is true. A bit like a politician, Ecolab talk the talk but don't often deliver on the message, as profits are the top priority above everything else.

  7. "Great purpose and people, frustrating systems and processes"

    I have been working at Ecolab full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    Great purpose: Ecolab sells solutions that help companies to save water and energy and to keep environments clean and healthy. It feels good knowing that you are contributing to safe food, healthy environments and clean water. Great people: most people are supportive and willing to help. Most leaders are approachable and down to earth. Strong values: Ecolab and its leaders values safety, diversity and doing the right thing. Development opportunities: company invests in developing its people. Large organisation with many career opportunities.

    Cons

    Systems and processes are very basic and often manual. Simple tasks can be very time consuming and frustrating. Complex business: several departments and divisions across multiple regional markets with many different systems and processes for each division and department and region. Quality of leadership is inconsistent: most teams have inspiring leaders but some managers can be hard to work with. Your experience of working at Ecolab depends on your region, your role and your manager.
