    I have been working at Echo Global Logistics full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    They claim to have a great culture. Don't fall for it. Zero job growth with long hours (7am to 5pm each day with 24hr email expectations) at zero overtime.

    Cons

    Where to start? Long days with low commissions. Rat race that feels like s real salary is always just out of reach. Absolutely no career growth, treat employees who've been around for a long time with no incentives to stay. No overtime pay and management won't pay you out the commissions you worked for.

    Advice to Management

    Pay overtime or stop making employees work 7-5. Lawsuit on hours waiting to happen.

    Pros

    The training provided at Echo is awesome, I felt prepared before I hit the floor and knew what was I talking about. I did not have a background in logistics, but the month of training helped me to understand the ins and outs of the industry. The people are probably one of the best things about this job! One week in to the job and I had already made so many new friends that are easy to work with and fun to be around. Echo does its best to make everyone here happy. Not only in our everyday work lives, but outside of work as well. They encourage us to volunteer and stay active, and host events through out the year to thank everyone for their hard work. Overall I am so happy to have found this company!

    Cons

    Logistics industry is a tough industry to be in

    Pros

    The office atmosphere is among the best you can find in a proffessional office setting but that is the only positive aspect of working for this company.

    Cons

    I have been working full time at Echo global logistics for 2 years. The company higher ups are among the shadiest business proffessionals you will ever come across in your job search. They do not value or care about their employees whatsoever and simply rely on the alarming turnover rate of employees to keep bodies coming in just as quickly as they are walking out the door.

    The avg. starting base salary is always changing in a growing industry such as the logistics industry and certainly has since I started with the company 2 years ago. New hires are now being offered 8k-10k more to start than I was when I started with the company. After working hard for 2 years and making the company a good amount of money but falling just short of their extremely challenging requirements to make any sort of commission month after month I approached management and asked if they were willing to up my base salary to just match what the new hires were getting and was told simply no. They stated it was unfortunately my problem that I started with the compamy when I did and that they are not entitled to have to give anything more since I signed the contract even after showing great work ethic for 2 years. I was told it costs them 80k a year just to keep my body in the seat and the less they have to pay you the happier they are regardless of how much income and profit you bring to the company.

    The commission structure is a rat race. It is designed for you to fall just short every month but keeps the rat running and chasing the wheel.

    Working 60+ hours a week is draining physically and mentally, which is fine. However when you get home at night and you are so mentally drained that you can barely communicate with your family or friends and think about the fact that you didnt make any more money that day than an hourly minimum wage employee at the local mcdonalds its frustrating. (At least mcdondals pays overtime)

    Another huge con about the company is that unless you are willing to play in the thursday night softball league and go out with the team until 3-4am afterward to a local bar dont expect to be allowed to work on any of the good accounts that actually gives you a chance hit the ridiculously high commission requirements. In other words the "good ol boys club" are the ones that get taken care of not the hard worker who chooses not to be a degenerate.

    Advice to Management

    None they do not care about opinions. The only thing management and the corporate higher ups care about are themselves.
