    I worked at Echo Incorporated full-time

    Pros

    Good people. Health insurance cost is reasonable.

    Cons

    Not a professional company. No career opportunities. They don't promote from within. They typically hire the cheapest people they can find whether qualified or not. Many unqualified employees. Poor raises, far below industry standards and below cost of living increases. Salaries not competitive. Weak leadership from V.P.'s.

    Advice to Management

    Needs new management in most departments.

    Average Interview

    Application

    The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at Echo Incorporated in June 2009.

    Interview

    Typical Process - Job was posted on internet. Got a phone call. made the cut then had personal interviews with HR / VP of Marketing and a Product Manager. Did not make the final cut. Company concerns that I was over qualified. I really wanted the position as Echo is a very good company and line of work seemed extremely interesting. In the course of the interviewing process I learned that over 200 resumes were received (many more but 200 had qualification match) Phone interviews were 8. Personal interviews were 4. Final cut was down to 2. Also per HR company was very stable except for some turnover in Marketing group - this is normal.
