I worked at Echo Incorporated

Pros

The only Pro to working at Echo, Inc would be there employee health insurance, The employee cost vs the benefits received are very good. Free rental of there power equipment is also a nice feature. Believe me, none of this is worth the disfunction in the workplace.

Cons

The downsides of working for Echo:

Everyone, and I mean everyone, under the management level are very unhappy employees. This is a Japanese owned company and they impose their management style upon the US managers that work there. Workers are not treated fairly, all cubicles are open air situated directly outside the managers offices...you feel constantly on display and it is intentional. Asking for time off or vacation is frowned upon. Even taking a sick day is rare....most managers come in sick and expect you to do the same. Work is scrutinized upon belief. Most is due to the fact that the managers there are extreme micro managers, basically in fear of Japans corporate officers and managers.
The human resource department is controlled by the President and Managers of the company and does nothing to instill common workplace fairness. Rules for time off differ if you are management vs non management. Certain department managers have been known to belittle their employees to the point of tears, with no ramifications from HR. Have I said enough??? RUN from a job here.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

I couldn't offer any advice to the management there. They are so closed minded and such micro managers they would not listen.

    I worked at Echo Incorporated full-time

    Pros

    Good people. Health insurance cost is reasonable.

    Cons

    Not a professional company. No career opportunities. They don't promote from within. They typically hire the cheapest people they can find whether qualified or not. Many unqualified employees. Poor raises, far below industry standards and below cost of living increases. Salaries not competitive. Weak leadership from V.P.'s.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Needs new management in most departments.
