    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 5 years)

    Pros

    - Great entry level sales position where you'll learn the industry and how to sell
    - Ability to make good money for your experience
    - Young company, fun culture with plenty of after work opportunities available

    Cons

    - Not much of a path once you're in Senior Sales, can make jump to Inside Sales Manager but not much else
    - Fast paced, constant change can be a turn off if you're not into that environment

    Advice to Management

    Listen to your sales people, they are the front line of the company and know the day to day struggles

    Pros

    Good entry level job. Great culture

    Cons

    Advancement opportunities are minimal. Management does a poor job at realizing and utilizing the talent they have employed.

    Advice to Management

    evaluate and reward the talent you currently have in the office instead of constantly highering cheaper and new employees where they are not needed
