    Pros

    Young atmosphere constant change, and Beer Friday.

    Cons

    Where to begin: For starters, the 'Logistics Sales Trainee' period is outrageous. 6 months of managers the same age as you making you feel replaceable. The training period is going through rotations for 6 months, doing jobs they don't want to hire actual full time employees for. In short, you upload documents for 6 months and then do one week of sales training and get thrown on the sales floor and are expected to make all these goals when you have very little guidance. The atmosphere is so young that promotions are based on favoritism, not because the person actually deserved it. Communication between departments is terrible, I would even say there is no communication period. The pay is horrible and not competitive to other Logistic companies in Chicago. The only way they make up for wasting 6 months of your life is bringing in beer on Fridays mid-afternoon.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Listen to your employees and what they have to say. Learn how to communicate with each other and make changes with the training program. The turnover rate would be much lower if even the smallest changes started getting made.

    I worked at Echo Global Logistics full-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    Strong company culture with great employees, leagues and events. If you're not in sales you probably have a decent and pretty easy job. If you are in sales and if you call the right person at the right time you could get lucky. It's more about getting lucky than being good at sales.

    Cons

    Pretty terrible compensation and benefits package, long hours, no opportunity for advancement and awful sales management.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Learn how to add value to your sales staff.
