No opinion of CEO

Pros

- Young work force. The entire office is between 22 - 30.
- Flexible hours. You can take time off when you need/want to without hassle
- Great employees

Cons

- Low starting wage
- Commission structure is designed to rip you off:
-- for accounts that are given to you, you recieve half of the commission
-- if one of your accounts defaults, they take about 23% of the loss from your check. Some accounts owe $50,000 +. (This is inspite of the fact that all accounts are insured agaiinst default. Meaning, Echo is first reimbursed by an insurance company and then recieves an additional 23% from the sales rep as profit.)
- Useless support structure:
-- getting the carrier department to assist you is like pulling teeth
-- the people who argue invoices discrepancies work against you

Advice to Management

Move to a base + commission structure & recognize hard work.

    Cons

    pay is below average for experience

    management needs to recognize stars ealier in their career, rather than just lump everyone into the same category, and they need to pay accordingly.

    Pros

    Really good people. I never wake up dreading to go to work. Even if I have a tough day my co-workers pick me up.

    Cons

    If you're in sales, it's not easy at first. Once you get traction you can do very well.

    Advice to Management

    The company seams really stable and still has a growth mentality. As long as the exec team doesn't loose that mind set, the company can continue to grow and gain market share.
