Promise for advancement and commissions in a growing company...hahaha

Regional Account Manager (Former Employee)
Chicago, IL

I worked at Echo Global Logistics

Prosyoung fun group of people to work with and your challenges change daily. Their is always something new to learn and be applied every day.

Conscommisions are extremely hard to earn despite the promise you will break through to earning the 20% commission in 6 months. Echo's policy is deceiving in that it requires you to not only earn the commission percentage, but then it must be paid in by the client for it to count. With 30 day payment terms the commission is backlogged by at lest 2 months IF, in the rare instance, a client actually pays on time.

As an Account Manager you are also responsible for handling your own Accounts Receivables when clients do not pay and Echo provides very little support or backbone to getting the invoices paid, which is key for you to earn your money.

The bottomline is that it is extremely difficult to earn any kind of additional commission in your first 6 months, and you can expect only roughly $100 to $200 per month in your first year.

Advice to Senior ManagementThe right hand does not know what the left hand is doing. Echo is constantly changing which metrics are the most integral to success and you are always getting a different goal from every different manager.

No, I would not recommend this company to a friend
