This was a great place to work, friendly, supportive team. Unfortunately, Swindon was closed after 20 yrs and relocated to Wales and Northwich was working closely with the Financial Controller, assisting with month end duties and balance sheet reconciliation.
Production Supervisor - Healthcare (Former Employee) – Baglan – 28 May 2018
Thoroughly enjoyed my time at Ecolab. I started as a production supervisor then moved to the transfer team to move the plant from Ystradgynlais to Baglan. A lot of this involved machinery supplier visits. I was responsible for writing SOP’s and ensuring everything worked well for production. As a bonus we achieved the deadline of officially opening the plant in February 2007.
Senior Manager (Former Employee) – South – 22 April 2018
New GM brought in and has no real idea of leading a team. Makes it personal and favours his mates or people who do things for him , somethings very unethical. This company has lost its way over the past three years after some really good GM’s. Worked in pest control.
Account Manager (Former Employee) – United Kingdom – 18 April 2018
Ecolab are a fantastic brand, the management styles and methods are out of date. They spend too much time chasing their bonuses, and forget about the individuals who actually make it happen, by using discreet intimidation tactics to allegedly encourage commitment. "flogging a willing horse "
Good company to work for. Managers are laid and flexible. However the company has a meeting culture that makes it difficult to keep up with day to day. Overall the company is a friendly and enjoyable place to work.
Pest Control Technician (Current Employee) – South – 3 November 2017
Started without training followdd someone around for 3/4weeks then out on my own. Manager at the time was a bully and couldnt give a monkeys about people. Work load is terrible cannot be met unless you work 7days a week and 80 hours plus. The new starters get MORE wages than someone that has more experience and time served. No support phone goes off all the time from HQ when going hede there and everywhere. People take the micky out of the system to benefit themselves and dont play the game. Team of 11 and i only know of 2 maybe 3 that work together and the rest do what they like.
Long hours and no care of staff with mental health issues
Pest control technician (Former Employee) – Harrow, Greater London – 15 September 2017
Took me on as a trainee technician with NO experience had a 2-3 weeks 'training' with another technician then I was dumped out on my own, with my own schedule and area to manage, which I had no idear how to manage it when I told my manager I got no help - horrible company to work for
The job itself is enjoyable to do but you don't get to focus on your area due to no concern to staff spending most of their time traveling
Service specialist (Current Employee) – Cambridge, Cambridgeshire – 23 May 2017
The company - on the face of it they are great, but with the pressure your put under they only care about knocking out routines, little concern for quality or giving staff the time needed to ensure 100% quality. They will not do anything about clients that make no efforts to action any recommendations to the point that clients do what they want regardless of following legislation and the wildlife and countryside act!!! Further more there is little to NO SUPPORT!!! If you join you will be looking for a job elsewhere within 6 months. The biggest con has to be the disparity in pay with job titles and responsibility! This is not a fair company to work for.
Disparity in pay within job titles and responsibility, High levels of pressure with little to no support, Long hours with unpaid travel to the first job and from the last, PPE is difficult to get or takes months, Stock ordered is often not supplied, Training is nonexistent
Warehouse Operative (Former Employee) – Neath – 10 February 2017
great colleagues and team in the warehouse. organisation of warehouse and stores left a lot to be desired a bit like the left hand was fighting the right hand with warehouse staff in the firing line. too much passing of the buck and not a blame free culture.
Pest Control Technician (Former Employee) – Surrey – 28 January 2017
To service bait boxes and make shore there are no problems with pest of all sorts in their work place.right out what you have done for them and print it out fill if the customers folder and then move on to the next one.
Very low morale and poor retention. Pays new employees more than those with long service. Managers don't have training and experience to manage so its disorganised. Long hours and very poor work life balance. Says its an ethical employer but its not.
