"Not the company I signed up for many years ago. Local management is great but mid to upper management has no clue when it comes to setting territories. Territories keep getting cut and sales budgets keep rising. This is an unsustainable business model."

"I worked for a short time with Nalco in early 2021, and for my part, I found that the training was a decisive step to guarantee good service and maintain a strong performance with clients and for a flourishing career. Nalco water has a particular method of recruiting which I really like because they make you capable and useful even when you doubt yourself, they know how to bring out the best in a person!"

"Ecolab was a good place for a career. However, they restructured. They took an $80-90K a year career and turned it into a $16-19/HR job. This is essentially a sales job and you were compensated on commissions and if you ran the route appropriately it was pretty easy to make budget and progress through the company to positions requiring more salesmanship etc. This year, 2021, they overhauled the comp structure so that you're an hourly associate. You have to compete with multiple people going into the same locations for limited sales, only new products count as sales and it doesn't matter how big your route is. The immediate supervisors were great and the company was a good company to work for but these changes effectively capped earning potential and you are very limited on what you can do...I signed on originally to to earn $75-80K and with the current structure I'll earn between $40-55K...$40K with promised overtime that is subject to change and $55K with hitting every sales target that has to be quantified in a complicated sales system, and maintain a budget off of pre-pandemic numbers. You don't automatically get credit if your customer buys something, you have to quantify it beforehand and claim it, not only that you're competing with other employees for the same sales. Ecolab has turned into a miserable place to work. My best guess is that they are saving about 30% on labor, between the new system and layoffs. I hope the customers realize this and start negotiating for better prices."
