    Pros

    Decent LTL package and their managed LTL program is unique. Outside of LTL the pros just about stop at that point

    Cons

    -They pride themselves on being a technological innovator in the industry but When they acquired Command they actually kept the bulk of the programs we designed in house. Our programs now what their entire platform is based on. The few programs that are native to Echo are outdated and highly inefficient.
    -The vast majority of carrier reps have been there less than 2 years so their purchasing power really isn't all that competitive. This makes sense when you realize that their turnover is sky high
    -Their commission structure is constantly evolving and transparency as to your own earnings couldn't be worse. At Command transportation we had an itemized inventory for every single load we moved and how much commission was won or lost. This is not the case at Echo. You have to jump through many hoops to see the real money you're making.
    -Overall, they've acquired too many companies and don't know which way to go. They aren't an efficient company don't do nearly enough for their reps.

    This is a great industry to be in but Echo has started to turn and burn employees for their own bottom line. If you want to press your luck and try it then that's up to you. However, I think most people will have better luck both personally and financially at a smaller, more nimble firm.

    Advice to Management

    There's a reason you're stock was trending at a 52 week low last month.
