Pros

Good Young Environment. The people working in your group are usually helpful and supportive with the workload.

Cons

There is little mobility. You can change positions, but it will not be reflected in any kind of pay increase. The management is misdirecting in their plans for the future, and inaccurate about what the roll out plans are for updates and products that are supposed to ease your work. It is a long day and with very little reward.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Complete projects, do not try and launch 5 different initiatives when 4.5 will not take off properly because everyone is spread too thin.

    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.
