    I worked at Echo Global Logistics full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    it's like a bus with really really wide doors, it's easy to get in.

    Cons

    direct manager was a complete micromanager, even though she would repeatedly say she was not.. did i mention she was a deceiving witch?? i still think of instances of when i was being micro'd and it gets my blood boiling. i've had such a better experience in my career after leaving the company, that it makes me wonder how some of the toxic management can stay with the company. there was even an instance where a manager rudely interrupted me while explaining something, and when i tried to continue, they asked why i was overtalking them... like WTF, do you want to know or not? can i not prove a point? i think ECHO is afraid to teach management how to perform with honesty and respect... too much favoritism... there's probably a REALLY good correlation to the company's turnover and management styles. SO GLAD I LEFT!!!!!!!

    Advice to Management

    take responsibility and own up to the complaints made by your employees. hear the employee out rather than the direct manager. train managers to be more effective at their job - even confidence counseling i could see benefit some... why have managers micromanage when

    Incentives that actually have money in them. commission plan with an actual chance for commission. Think more about the employees than your own pockets
