    Echo Global Logistics – Dallas

    Mar 13, 2013 - Sales Supervisor in Dallas, TX
    Recommend
    CEO Approval
    Business Outlook

    Pros

    Echo is a young company with a very young atmosphere, the average age in the Dallas office is sitting somewhere in the neighborhood of 24 years old. Echo Dallas has a great work environment for someone who wants to work hard and play hard. The atmosphere is very laid back in regards to letting you do things your own way. Echo Chicago provides a great training experience for the branch. Almost all higher level positions in the company are filled via internal promotions. Sales reps are not micro managed in their daily tasks. No commission cap, which generally puts a 3rd year employee in the six figure range.

    Cons

    Echo’s starting compensation is a draw against commission, rather than base plus commission. This is standard across the board in most logistics sales careers. However, it can seem somewhat daunting at first, but generally representatives are above their base compensation within the first nine months.

    Pros

    Young and mostly upbeat work environment. If you are liked then you will be able to get ahead. They have beer fridays once a month.

    Cons

    Managed transportation is underpaid, with inexperienced managers, and you are stuck behind at your desk taking the blame for nothing that you did. Echo is like a high school, just one big popularity contest. You wont get ahead if you are not liked by the managers.

    HR Representative

    As you know, working as a middle man in our industry can be difficult because we have to creatively solve issues that aren’t necessarily our fault and relay information from our carrier partners to our clients. The hard work you do in our Managed Transportation department is very much appreciated and doesn’t go unnoticed. Please don’t ever hesitate to reach out to HR directly if you have ideas and suggestions around how to show our AEs how valuable they are. Thanks for your review and for helping us create a positive, upbeat culture in a demanding industry.

    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.
