    Pros

    Excellent culture that leverages IT to better serve it's customers. Tremendous runway room to grown one's career with constant opportunity to advance your skill set, and managers that encourage you to do so. Overall a great place to work that provides a wide variety of challenges and a team that helps celebrates success!

    Cons

    With such a fast growing organization, process change is very normal. Ways of doing things in the past may no longer work, and it is often up to the employee to take the reigns and make those changes themselves. This of course is easier said than done, but this "con" can easily be a "pro" if looked at through the right lens.

    I have been working at Echo Global Logistics full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Good people, relaxed attire. If you work, you can determine your own strategy and get support for opps.

    Cons

    Lacks professionalism at times, a lot of dead weight from people who have no desire to work beyond collecting the paycheck.

    Advice to Management

    Reel it in a bit, people won't need to be pestered about call numbers if professionalism is built back in from the top. Those who want to succeed will work.

    I worked at Echo Global Logistics full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    -Amazing culture; puts strong emphasis on making you feel a part of the team from the start.
    -A lot of perks / office dynamic is great- fun environment/open feel; no cubicals. the office itself is very impressive
    -Managers do a lot of spiffs where you can earn free lunches/gift cards

    Cons

    -Pay at first , like most sales jobs- but over the course of my time at Echo I did make great money
    -In the transportation business there is a lot that is out of your control and a lot of the business is transnational

    Advice to Management

    -Overall really liked the Detroit Management team. No major concerns. Felt like any concerns were with things outside of their control
    -Management team over the last few years has improved. I liked my old Sales Manager, but the last manager I had was very involved and actually helped with day to day tasks (like covering truckloads)

    Pros

    Working at Echo has been great so far. Great first job out of college. Everyone who works here is super friendly and helpful. Management wants you to be successful. Great training program that prepares you when you're on the floor. Great sales job if you love people, want to learn, and make change. You get what you give. If you want to make $$$ you have to put in the time and effort. Great company to grow with if you want to build a career.

    Cons

    can be exhausting and draining

    I worked at Echo Global Logistics full-time

    Pros

    Great culture, especially for recent grads.

    Cons

    They make it extremely difficult to make commission. It's hard to live off of $35K/year. The turnover is extremely high. The classroom training is good but after that you better be prepared to learn as you go.

    Advice to Management

    Put more time into your employees, make a better training program.
