    if you are mechanically oriented than this is the best job for you , other wise only for sales its worse as it is a servics company not only a sales company , understand.

    Pros

    Great work-life balance, management and co-workers are all great to work with, great 401(k) match (75% match on 8% contribution), job flexibility and autonomy

    Cons

    The only con I can think of is how expensive the health insurance plans are compared to my last job. The high deductible plan premium is the same as the low deductible premium at my last job.

    I have been working at Ecolab full-time (more than 5 years)

    Pros

    Great pay. Flexible hours. 401k match,stock and other great benefits.
    Company vehicle with gas card and company credit card. Everyday is different. Minimal supervision.

    Cons

    You have to make and follow your own schedule so being proactive and a self starter is vital. Pay is dependent on service and customer base so if a corporate account goes your pay for it goes too. A lot of pressure to make budget. Late night installs and emergency service at all hours. We have a great team here but I've heard other areas are not as supportive. You have to get your vacations and sick days covered and order and store your own equipment. Advancement opportunities are great but for most you need to move.
