You know Ecolab - numbers first. They cut directors a few years back, VPs have been encouraged to go in the last 2 years and many have chose to retire or leave on their own. Contractors with expiring contracts are gone and now it is the managers' turn. They are also planning to close down the Columbus site. The difference at Ecolab is that these things are always secretive - only the departments know of the losses and general communications are not made. Certainly there is no warning like you might get in another company so that you understand what is happening and why. Our best person was let go.
