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

    Pros

    I was working for One Stop Logistics until Echo Global bought us in 2014. I loved One Stop and had no complaints. Echo came in and offered us a higher percentage of profits from dollar one, 401K, excellent health benefits, and welcomed us into the family. Our training was quick, yet detailed and the transition was painless. A dummy could use the software for Echo.....It is so user friendly, and any question from any department is immediately.

    So I meet a young man that is very intelligent and a go getter in my neighborhood from a mutual friend. He is fresh out of college and looking for a full time career. I told him about who I worked for and how much I love my job along with some of the benefits.....He takes it upon himself to seek out employment and drops my name. I had no idea he even did that. So he starts working today and by his go-getter attitude, I know he will rise quickly!!! Then for doing nothing but loving my job, Echo paid me a $1000 referral bonus I did not even know they offered!!!! I hear my brother and so many individuals come home and hate their jobs and who they work for and what they do. I am so blessed to be a part of this company, and I am a lifer!!!!

    Cons

    On Fridays, the boss rolls out a cooler of beer for all of the employees to drink....I have a $500 a year total deductible on my insurance plan for medical and dental for my entire family, my pay is always on time and accurate. I sometimes make my mortgage payment in one day of work here, and actually it is most days.....

    Advice to Management

    Keep doing what you are doing......Success is contagious. Investing in people is what every successful company has done, and you all have done the same. Some of my best customers have come from cold calling....Keep pushing cold calls....They work!!!! Numbers don't lie.

    Pros

    I like the company culture a lot. This was originally why I came to this company and it makes sense.

    Cons

    I cannot say much since I am so new to the company. Every company has its flaws but at the moment,there doesn't seem to be much wrong with my experience.

    Pros

    I've never worked anywhere with the energy and culture that Echo has. The open work environment really encourages people to communicate on a daily basis and helps build relationships across all departments. It's great to work at a place where you feel valued as an employee and are rewarded for your hard work!

    Cons

    In this type of industry there's constantly changes, but management does a great job of communicating what changes are going to happen and how it'll effect us.

    Pros

    Echo is a great place to learn and grow your career! It is a great company to work for that has a very fun atmosphere IE: outings, intramural sports, young culture. There are many opportunities/training's on how to grow your current job or find a new role that you can maximize your talents and excel in.

    Cons

    You may have to work longer hours and it is not always a specific 9-5pm job.

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

    Pros

    The company culture and career / financial opportunity are really what keep me excited about coming to work each day. There is never a day that is like the last one and for those who work smart / hard, there is ample opportunity to grow within their current role or new ones.

    Cons

    The only con I can think of would be comparing the hours at Echo to other industries. There is no question that a career in logistics is NOT a 9 - 5 job, but the work expectations are in line with all other logistics providers / freight brokers.

    Advice to Management

    Continue to invest in your people. This is an area that Echo has focused more on in the past year and it is having great results.
