OK to work for but not team oriented
Route Sales/Service Manager (Former Employee) –  Vancouver, BC7 September 2018
Ecolab is a good company to work for but is very demanding with a steep learning curve that is hard to get used to.

Management is very political and corporate as this is a large company.

The hardest part of the job is managing all the expectations of the clients, management, and corporate office from the field.
Pros
company vehicle
Cons
On call

Big boys club
Marketing Specialist (Former Employee) –  Mississauga, ON27 November 2017
This company is not a company where women excel. It's a boy's club where not much training is provided. The work environment is mostly one where even if you work hard, you will not get ahead in your career.

Great place to work prior to 2010
Territory Manager (Former Employee) –  Ontario7 November 2017
This was an extremely good job a few years ago. Current management has been put in charge to cut as much from the sales team as possible to improve the bottom line. Expect to work and be on call ALL THE TIME. Some really great people worked for the company and were great to work with. Unfortunately in a downward spiral you lose all the good ones and the ones that are left are bitter. They have a good business model and hopefully at some point they figure out how to get a good culture back.
Pros
company car

Not a good company to work
Service Specialist (Former Employee) –  Brandon, MB19 October 2017
Beginning of the career was good. Suddenly company changed the Payrol plan. If you don’t have family life and don’t mind company changed your pay cheque whenever they want then go for it. Lack of the management is the biggest issues in the company. No communication between boss and employees. If something happened you will be the guy got blamed.
Pros
Company vehicle
Cons
Management, pay

What balance
Territory Manager (Former Employee) –  Western Canada14 August 2017
A once great company that valued it's employees has done a complete 180. If you value family, work/life balance and a desire to earn good money then go elsewhere.

Ecolab has very little value for it's front line workers, always on call, they don't pay for extra weekends etc....

A good place for opportunity

The company has a pretty good job culture and has good potential for growth and advancement. Management is quiet supportive. A typical day at work required performing many SAP processes using computer, filing, creating databases and spreadsheets

Friendly place to work!
Cost Analyst (Former Employee) –  Mississauga, ON19 April 2017
When I started, things were really disorganized and I was able to use my strong computer skills to ensure the monthly statements and analysis were prepared. The hardest part of the position was that there was no procedures documented.

TM in Edmonton Market Instituional
Territory Manager (Former Employee) –  Edmonton, AB21 January 2017
Little support from management in Edmonton market. Coworkers were eager to help as they are in the same boat of being on call 24 hrs a day, Area manager was disconnected as some workers during my tenure there were lazy and their territories were in terrible shape and when i was on call on weekends for the entire Edmonton area (10 times a year 24 hrs a day) you worked your butt off. In the neglected territories no less. Lots of turnover as the company has difficulty retaining people. Money was poor as the start salary is 44K a year. I was Presidents Club twice and was refused a transfer because a lazy boss stood in my way.
Pros
Freedom and a boss that is out of touch. Dead end job
Cons
24 hrs on call and lousy money.
