    I worked at Echo Global Logistics full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    Laid back environment
    Very little structure
    Extensive training

    Cons

    You do not make over your base salary for the first year, and when you do start getting commission it is easily taken away. Logistics is a cut throat industry, not for the faint of heart. The first year will feel like you are only working in a call center, and becomes very boring after about 3 months. There is not much room for growth in the company; management is more set in stone.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    There should be better incentives for good work, besides a bar tab.
