    I have been working at Echo Global Logistics full-time for more than 2 years

    Pros

    I have been with Echo Global Logistics for a little under 2 years. Echo is a great place to establish a successful career in the logistics industry if you have the drive to put in the work every day. They provide you with all tools and training needed so that you have the knowledge and skill sets required to become successful. Echo's proprietary technology is second to none and provides a competitive advantage that allows...

    Cons

    In order to make money at Echo you must be willing to put in the work. You will not find success if you expect the clients to come to you. Reps that are willing to put in the work every day are able to establish a consistent book of business and can make 6 figures by year 2 (no joke). With that being said, the job can become frustrating if you do not have a serious drive to be successful. The job is not for everyone,...

    I have been working at Echo Global Logistics full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    Echo is fun, laidback, and very team oriented. I started this position right out of college, and I love working here. You are selling a service that all companies need, you get to build relationships with clients and grow your own accounts. I came into the job knowing nothing about logistics, and I feel like I have gained very valuable experience wherever my career takes me. There is also potential to make a ton of money...

    Cons

    Cold calling gets old...you make 60-80 calls a day. You are also the middle man when something goes wrong. You need to be tough and know how to make things happen.

    Advice to Management

    Care more about long term account management than making big margins on individual little shipments

    Job security - they don't fire people. Peers - all young

    I worked at Echo Global Logistics full-time for more than 4 years

    Pros

    Casual and fun atmosphere, young crowd

    Cons

    Management is not the brightest, which actually serves as a PRO rather than a Con. Zero accountability, which I guess is also a Pro... Basically, you can show up in sweatpants and screw around for a good portion of the day and there is NO chance you'll get fired. If you're not with the "in crowd," they will make your life miserable until you quit. If you're a hard worker, the laziness of 70% of your office will drive...

    Advice to Management

    The rampant nepotism needs to come to an immediate halt. PAY YOUR PEOPLE! Subjective bonus structures are embarrassing

      Pros

      Fun work environment, constant catered lunches and breakfast, happy hours, young company culture

      Cons

      A lot of pressure from management to meet cold call quotas and new account quotas. Managing shipments is too stressful. Commission structure isn't fair and only benefits 5% of the sales reps.

      Pros

      Mostly a friendly environment depending on which department you are in

      Cons

      No incentives at all which is causing a high turnover. Company expects you to work as hard as you can but doesn’t offer anything in return which is making people leave. No option to work from home/remote unless you’re a manager. Have to accrue time off which can take a while.

      Advice to Management

      Start listening and pay attention to your employees. Upper management expects so much when we get so little in return
