No job security
Cleanroom Operative and Quality Inspector (Former Employee) –  Baglan, Neath Port Talbot18 June 2018
No job security, staff turnover was very high.

Clean working environment and the shifts were short and flexible.
This job was an agency job so was not secure.

Finance Assistant (Former Employee) –  Swindon, Wiltshire4 June 2018
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.

Great company
Production Supervisor - Healthcare (Former Employee) –  Baglan28 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.
Pros
Great challenge & a fantastic team.
Cons
Long hours

Poor leadership team
Senior Manager (Former Employee) –  South22 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.
Pros
Left alone if figure are good
Cons
If figures are not good then beware !

Great Company - Shame about the management
Account Manager (Former Employee) –  United Kingdom18 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Ecolab are a fantastic brand, the management styles and methods are out of date.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 "
Pros
Good company
Cons
Out of date management styles

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.
Pros

Pest Control Technician (Current Employee) –  South3 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.
Pros
None
Cons
Long hours and no care of staff with mental health issues

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, Cambridgeshire23 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.
Pros
Van
Cons
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

Ill treatment of their reliable staff

Poor employer
Manager (Former Employee) –  UK31 October 2016
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.
