    I have been working at Echo Global Logistics (Less than a year)

    Pros

    When I walked in the doors I could tell this was not like any place I'd ever worked, and I've been my own boss... CEO and COO of 2 small businesses operated in Dallas.

    The work environment, while rigorous, is a very positive learning and coaching environment, as well as being very transparent. I can email the CEO and get a response from him directly in the same day. There's no one too big in the company to reach out to with a concern, idea, suggestion, or insight. That coming from an 8 year old, Billion dollar, Publicly Traded company? "Yeah Right" is what you're thinking, but it's entirely true.

    The leadership in the office is involved, but not at the micro-management level (unless you thrive on micro-management). There's freedom of setting your own pace for your day and getting accomplished what needs to be done in a manner that you can handle.

    I can't imagine working anywhere else, at this point, unless I won the Lottery and never had a need for it. Even still, I'd be tempted to come in and run a small book of business.

    PS: If you're reading negative comments about the company from former employees... take it with a grain of salt. This job is not about the salary. Anyone worth their mettle is not trying to keep their salary here, they're working for commissions. There's no such thing as a pay cut when you're growing a book of business and getting paid for your efforts with that book. Someone talking about pay cuts on their salary is someone that shouldn't have been here in the first place. This is real sales... not retail.

    Cons

    I live furthermore out of Dalals than most, so the commute is a little difficult for me. While it's centrally located in beautiful Uptown Dallas off Woodall Rodgers... it's also located off Woodall Rodgers... which means traffic can be a nightmare. That's about all he negative I can think to report.

    Advice to Management

    Keep doing what you're doing. You've got it right.

    Pros

    The cool thing about working at Echo Dallas is that we have tons of outuside events that keep the job fun and interesting.

    Cons

    The only challenge that I feel that may be a problem is moving up within the company after working here for a while. There are a ton of smart people that work here so the competition is pretty tough.

    Advice to Management

    Keep up the good work!

    continue on the path we've seen recently adding more levels of managment and making teams smaller so reps get more one on one attention

    Pros

    Fun company culture in an energetic, young office. I love coming into work every day because of my coworkers. Unique career potential for every individual, you have the opportunity to carve out your own career path and management is there to help and encourage you every step of the way.

    Cons

    Logistics is a very fast-paced industry so be prepared for a new challenge everyday. But hard work pays off because there is a lot of potential to make money...uncapped commission!

    Advice to Management

    It will be important to maintain the open door policy with management as we continue to grow.

    Pros

    This is a young and high energy culture with Midwestern values. Super nice people and very social atmosphere. Everyone wants you to succeed. If you've ever thought about giving commissioned sales a try, this is the place to do it.

    Cons

    The first 6 months are difficult - lots of cold calling. But if you can stick with it you will succeed.
