    Pros

    Young co-workers- that is about it

    Cons

    SUCH A DEPRESSING JOB. As an account executive, you are literally just calling truckers all day and scheduling shipments. If you have an education, are SMART, or want to use your actual brain at work, DO NOT WORK HERE. This job should be for high school drop outs. It's basically a call/ customer service center. No appreciation at all for employees. Overall, the most depressing place I have ever been.

    Advice to Management

    Show some appreciation for your employees. No one actually likes this job so maybe some appreciation would be nice.

    Pros

    Wild West. The money you make depends on the work you do. There are opportunities to cash in, but you can also do nothing all day which gets you nowhere.

    Cons

    Iffy commission structure. Some people are screwed because they just support big account and derive no benefit from the account revenue.

    Advice to Management

    Transparency is key for sales. People need to know exactly how much they are entitled to, and as a company you must make good on your obligations.

    Thanks for your review. You’re absolutely right, as with any sales position, compensation is directly related to the work you put in and self-motivation is key to success. Thanks for your comments on ... More

    Pros

    Nothing. All the reviews that claim this place is a great place to work are written by management.

    Cons

    Pay is terrible, commission is unobtainable, favoritism, nepotism, etc.. such a joke

    Pros

    The company culture and career / financial opportunity are really what keep me excited about coming to work each day. There is never a day that is like the last one and for those who work smart / hard, there is ample opportunity to grow within their current role or new ones.

    Cons

    The only con I can think of would be comparing the hours at Echo to other industries. There is no question that a career in logistics is NOT a 9 - 5 job, but the work expectations are in line with all other logistics providers / freight brokers.

    Advice to Management

    Continue to invest in your people. This is an area that Echo has focused more on in the past year and it is having great results.

    Pros

    Echo is a great place to learn and grow your career! It is a great company to work for that has a very fun atmosphere IE: outings, intramural sports, young culture. There are many opportunities/training's on how to grow your current job or find a new role that you can maximize your talents and excel in.

    Cons

    You may have to work longer hours and it is not always a specific 9-5pm job.

    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.
