    Pros

    Potential to make money there! It will also take up 18 months to build your book of business. People are closing new business daily.

    Cons

    Not a job for minorities. Management at times will go weeks without saying hello even when you sit right next to them. Prior to me leaving the office was very vulgar with racist remarks and comments in the office about women, Mexicans and African Americans. Managers are selective on whom they assist and will sometimes quote you a higher rate hoping that you will fail when quoting a customer. Would be a great company to work for if it wasn't for the politics. My manager made me very uncomfortable, and fell unwanted.

    Advice to Management

    When people are new to Echo and logistics you are basically their parent in the industry. They will look to you for advice and answers. Don't yell at them and discourage them for asking a question as you where once new to the industry. You are killing their morale with Echo, and you never know what great things they could have accomplished within the company.

    Pros

    The culture and people was that of a logistic company. People were cool, laid back, not entirely micro-managey.

    Quick money if you're good.

    Cons

    The hours sucked, and you spend your entire day talking to truck drivers. It's mindless work.

    Advice to Management

    Clean house on middle management.
