Pros

We have a lot fun at work. Echo does a good job on training and keeping employees informed on the market and develops employees to help them for their career. Echo keeps the morale high by encouraging us and doing fun activities to keep people engaged. There's never a dull moment. My day goes by very fast and it's very exciting helping our clients do the inevitable and everyone shares in each other's successes. I like the people I work with and enjoy the logistics industry overall.

Cons

The system we use has some flaws and seems like the "red bar of death" pops up too often but the Help desk is always available and do a pretty good job at resolving any IT issues with a phone call to the dedicated IT line.

    Pros

    absolutely zero, there are no cons to this job. It is like high school except they pay you the bare minimum to get people in the door

    Cons

    I dont even know where to start, there are so many that I could never even begin to start to put them on here

    Advice to Management

    just quit

    Pros

    - Great atmosphere, lot of great friendships made
    - Decent work/life balance
    - Fun work events
    -If you have the money to make base for a couple years while others quit and you get handed their accounts this might not be a bad job for you
    - Middle management does care about your success*

    Cons

    - Commission structure is a joke, dont expect to make more than your base until either a) You get lucky and land a large customer or b) have been there for 1 1/2 years
    - Frat House atmosphere at time where work is hard to get accomplished
    - Beng dishonest and shady are traits that are praised
    -*While middle management is helpful and does want you to succeed they have little power to offer any form of bonus or monetary reward beyond a gift card to the Olive Garden
    - Goals are so overinflated that it is challenging to even take them seriously, let alone hit them.
    - While the LTL market is becoming more and more saturated the only way to make any money is in the truckload market which Echo is currently inept at, as their carrier team is tiny

    Advice to Management

    While the company atmosphere and beer fridays are fun at first, the good feelings begin to ware off once employees realize that they are being taken advantage of as cheap labor with extremely lofty goals and a commission structure that is almost laughable. Make your 1yr reps that have been putting in hard work and making your company money feel like they are more than just a number on a spread sheet. Your turnover will be high until you realize that you can not just focus on your top earners and new hires, something has to be done to compensate successful employees who are in the 1-2 year range so they wont quit and never use your service when/if they are shipping managers one day. Build your Truckload carrier team so you can actually service what you are asking your sales team to sell. At the end of the day people go to work to make money and no amount of Starbucks gift cards and beer can make them forget that they are being taken advantage of.
