I have been working at Echo Global Logistics full-time (more than an year)

Pros

The culture is great. Most people are fairly young and hungry for success. Management is very helpful. They hand out beer on Fridays at the office.

Cons

Cold calling, sometimes things that are out of your control can temporarily limit your opportunities, there are a ton of employees so one on one help isn't always available, salary is better than most sales jobs but still not great until you make commission.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Keep up the good work.

    Pros

    This is a young and high energy culture with Midwestern values. Super nice people and very social atmosphere. Everyone wants you to succeed. If you've ever thought about giving commissioned sales a try, this is the place to do it.

    Cons

    The first 6 months are difficult - lots of cold calling. But if you can stick with it you will succeed.
