I worked at Echo Global Logistics full-time

Pros

Corporate setting, free meals on the company, very relaxed office atmosphere

Cons

-You have to sourece your own leads and they expect you to do it outside of work, without pay of course
-The training is too short
-No scale for marking up so they give you a sense to feel a bit like a shady broker

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Listen to your staff more, don't be so aggressive, supervising is one thing, but without giving your employees the right tools to be successful the upper level managers come off as money hungry.

    Pros

    It's a young, fun company.

    If you aren't in the "inner circle" you won't get any perks.

    Good first job. Not a long term opportunity

    Pros

    - Young work force. The entire office is between 22 - 30.
    - Flexible hours. You can take time off when you need/want to without hassle
    - Great employees

    Cons

    - Low starting wage
    - Commission structure is designed to rip you off:
    -- for accounts that are given to you, you recieve half of the commission
    -- if one of your accounts defaults, they take about 23% of the loss from your check. Some accounts owe $50,000 +. (This is inspite of the fact that all accounts are insured agaiinst default. Meaning, Echo is first reimbursed by an insurance company and then recieves an additional 23% from the sales rep as profit.)
    - Useless support structure:
    -- getting the carrier department to assist you is like pulling teeth
    -- the people who argue invoices discrepancies work against you

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Move to a base + commission structure & recognize hard work.
