    "Grateful employee"

    5.0
    Current Employee - Senior Account Executive in Chicago, IL

    I have been working at Echo Global Logistics full-time for more than 5 years

    Pros

    As we all know, COVID-19 has become a threat to our every day working lives. Many Americans are filing for unemployment and so many others are worried they will be next. With all this uncertainty I wanted to take time acknowledge how great Echo has been to work for under the current circumstances. As the Coronavirus outbreak started to explode in America, Echo had the foresight to scale up their technology immediately so their employees could remain working in full force. In an effort to continue daily operations as normal, Echo's IT team rolled out a plan so employee's can work remote within a 5 day timeline. Keep in mind, this is a logistics company where 98% of the workforce solely have stationary jobs within our HQ and nationwide offices. These quick actions made by our executives led us to continue to service all of clients needs and most importantly keep America's truck drivers busy on the roads with essential shipments. Not only have we been able to keep our business afloat, we've been able to expand by helping new clients in need as well. I've been apart of the Echo team for 6 years and I've never felt more confident in my company than I do today. I am a salesperson, so please do not be fooled into thinking this was written so HR would acknowledge me and give me a raise. This message was to inform all those out there who have talent that this company cares and will fight for your job security.

    Cons

    Sales is not for everyone. But if you can make it work here, you can have a nice career.
