    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.

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