    Pros

    I was working for One Stop Logistics until Echo Global bought us in 2014. I loved One Stop and had no complaints. Echo came in and offered us a higher percentage of profits from dollar one, 401K, excellent health benefits, and welcomed us into the family. Our training was quick, yet detailed and the transition was painless. A dummy could use the software for Echo.....It is so user friendly, and any question from any department is immediately.

    So I meet a young man that is very intelligent and a go getter in my neighborhood from a mutual friend. He is fresh out of college and looking for a full time career. I told him about who I worked for and how much I love my job along with some of the benefits.....He takes it upon himself to seek out employment and drops my name. I had no idea he even did that. So he starts working today and by his go-getter attitude, I know he will rise quickly!!! Then for doing nothing but loving my job, Echo paid me a $1000 referral bonus I did not even know they offered!!!! I hear my brother and so many individuals come home and hate their jobs and who they work for and what they do. I am so blessed to be a part of this company, and I am a lifer!!!!

    Cons

    On Fridays, the boss rolls out a cooler of beer for all of the employees to drink....I have a $500 a year total deductible on my insurance plan for medical and dental for my entire family, my pay is always on time and accurate. I sometimes make my mortgage payment in one day of work here, and actually it is most days.....

    Advice to Management

    Keep doing what you are doing......Success is contagious. Investing in people is what every successful company has done, and you all have done the same. Some of my best customers have come from cold calling....Keep pushing cold calls....They work!!!! Numbers don't lie.

    Pros

    I like the company culture a lot. This was originally why I came to this company and it makes sense.

    Cons

    I cannot say much since I am so new to the company. Every company has its flaws but at the moment,there doesn't seem to be much wrong with my experience.

    Pros

    Pay and Benefits.
    Flexibility and room to nurture and grow as a consultant. Not your average sales job. No get it get it get it get it. This is really the only job that you are creating and running your own business. I have the unique ability to stumble and fall and not lose my house. The best job I have ever had. Lots of support everywhere.

    Cons

    Getting started, finding that first client. It is a lot of phone work.

    Advice to Management

    Any advice I would give would be trite and made up. So no, no advice. They know what they are doing.

    Pros

    Great environment and I think that the small incentives are a good way to reward hard work. I may be a little more optimistic than others but I enjoy a majority of the work I do here at Echo, once commission gets closer it seems it may be paying off.
    If you can motivate yourself I believe this would be a great place for you to start.

    Cons

    Commission seems harder to get to that first told. Also cold calling isn't fun, but if you are going into a sales job chances are you are going to cold call. You just have to make the best of it and know if you work hard it will pay off.

    Doesn't seem like there is room to grow your career unless it is in sales.

    Advice to Management

    More consistency on following up with tasks would be appreciated.

    Pros

    I suppose the beer on Friday is a nice perk, as well as the young and up beat environment.

    Cons

    Too many to detail, not enough adequate training on the transportation industry. Disorganized management structure. Its makes everything difficult. Nepotism. Management being inappropriate and creating a very uncomfortable work environment.

    Advice to Management

    Train your staff. Don't pick favorites.
