    I have been working at Ecolab full-time (more than 10 years)

    Pros

    the job is similar to a franchisee arrangement. you have a great deal of control over your schedule and path of growing your business.Ecolab looks after all the expenses while you are in charge of the revenue side. The more you sell the more you make. A successful TM can expect to grow his salary by 10% every year. Company vehicle is provided that you can use personally. Lots of awards and accolades are passed along for those doing well.

    Cons

    A higher then normal work week. 50-55 hours would be the norm. Weekend call expectations typically are once a month. Like most large companies $ drive the engine. They have been penny pinching more and more over the last decade despite the fact their O.I is almost 35%. No more company outings, trips for strong performers, national meetings are a thing of the past.. Very few perks that you would normally get with a large successful company.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Listen to your work force. Ecolab was once a great place to work because we felt listened to and valued. Many people over the last 5-8 years have been feeling more like a replaceable cog in a wheel then a respected, valued part of a successful organization
