Productive but not really fun work place
service specialist (Former Employee) –  Cape Town, Western Cape14 November 2019
The management needs to work well with thier team, be honest to the people who leave thier family before sunrise and only after sunset. to spend all day don't take lunch break because of the work load that needs to done closing date and the short of staff. Workers needs to be compensated for the time they sacrifice to help the company. Thank you

Good environment to work in. Dedication and loyalty is of utmost importance.
Debtors and Creditors Clerk (Former Employee) –  Durban, KwaZulu-Natal10 November 2019
Punctuality was a priority. That is a clear reflection of your character. Dealing with major companies was a challenge but I overcame them. Management was strict, which was acceptable. A very high benchmark was set. That was also good, because one had to reach for those goals. Excellent work culture. Team work was good.Weekend away at year end.

Ecolab SA not a good company.
general worker (Current Employee) –  Johannesburg, Gauteng16 August 2019
The problem with the organisation is management, where by most of the the critical issues raised by the employees are treated with less priority. Salary is not scaled well. you will find people with same experince and qualifications earning different incomes under the same management. the is a lot of racial tensions which the Hr fails to tackle.

Overall the organisation is fine if it happen you land in a good managers hands.
Cons
Work over load

Rigid with little flexibility
Sales Cordinator (Current Employee) –  Edenvale, Gauteng12 September 2018
I am working for Nalco which was bought by ECOLAB however the companies exist independent of each other The cultures are very different.
Nalco motivates and encourages its employees to be at their best while Ecolab forces employees to be at their best by using certain methods that leaves an employee with no option but to do what is expected of them.
Pros
None
Cons
Rigid
