If you were in charge, what would you do to make Ecolab a better place to work?
I would focus on my people more. It seams Nalco Champion management gets to busy with the day to day and forgets that the people under them have aspirations to advance in their career. I would work on promoting my good employees rather than forgetting about them until they hit their breaking point. If an employee was passed over for a promotion I would make it very clear to them the reasons why.
You get health care 401k stock the works starting day 1 and they have a pension set up for you after 30 days I believe you get dental Vision all day 1
What is the vacation policy like at Ecolab? How many vacation days do you get per year?
Inst. Division, just take it, have others cover your ESRs while your gone. Work ahead or work a lot after your vacation. It really dosent matter. I had associates "take vacation" and still work at their leisure, just so they didnt have to keep running esrs. This was so they could catch up on daily tasks.
