    I have been working at Ecolab full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    Great career progression. Company is heavily focused on talent development and training opportunities. Flexible working available and encouraged. Huge investment in diversity and inclusion (E3) in the past 18 months. There has been alot of change in the past year but i feel excited to be part of the journey. On a personal level, the company were hugely supportive when i went through an extended leave of absence due to serious illness and I had access to lots of initiatives which supported me through that difficult time.

    Cons

    The only downside is that benefits do not increased with length of service - ie holiday entitlement is the same regardless whether you have been with the company for 1 year or 10 years - 20 days. You have the opportunity to buy up to ten extra days (again open to all regardless of service) but it would be nice if long service was rewarded with an extra days holiday , say for every 5 years service.

    Advice to Management

    Communicate more on a local level, We receive alot of Global and European comms but none from UK (except from E3).
    Review the holiday entitlement for long serving employees as a Thank You

    Sales Development Manager Interview

    Anonymous Employee in London, England
    Accepted Offer
    Positive Experience
    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 4 weeks. I interviewed at Ecolab (London, England) in December 2018.

    Interview

    The interview process was intense .. be prepared for a Math paper and a scenario based paper that wants you to "sell the dream" work our percentages and put it together as a proposal, expect competency based questions and to be quizzed on your weak points as you will have filled out a personality test online pre interview.
