    Pros

    Great place to work right out of college as a first job. Fun work environment with good people.

    Cons

    Large amount of turnover which results in current employees being forced into added responsibilities that do not correlate with added pay.

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

    Pros

    It is a very young company with a high energy atmosphere. It is a great place to build a sales career through learning fundamentals. The training program is very thorough.

    Cons

    The training program, while thorough, is very tedious. Halfway through the program, all you want to do is hit the floor and start calling.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    For carrier sales, I would only suggest more team oriented goals/rewards. It is difficult to break through to commission without a national carrier.
