    Pros

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

    Cons

    commisions 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 ManagementAdvice

    The 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.

    Pros

    Its a good place to work straight out of college as it gives you a decent amount of experience but I would not recommend making a career out of it.

    Cons

    The commission structure is a joke and its hard to move up in the company unless your one of the lucky few.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Reward the people that bring you your business. Do not give promotions based off of popularity rather than actual accomplishments.
