    Pros

    Laid back environment
    Very little structure
    Extensive training

    Cons

    You do not make over your base salary for the first year, and when you do start getting commission it is easily taken away. Logistics is a cut throat industry, not for the faint of heart. The first year will feel like you are only working in a call center, and becomes very boring after about 3 months. There is not much room for growth in the company; management is more set in stone.

    Advice to Management

    There should be better incentives for good work, besides a bar tab.

    I worked at Echo Global Logistics full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Good Young Environment. The people working in your group are usually helpful and supportive with the workload.

    Cons

    There is little mobility. You can change positions, but it will not be reflected in any kind of pay increase. The management is misdirecting in their plans for the future, and inaccurate about what the roll out plans are for updates and products that are supposed to ease your work. It is a long day and with very little reward.

    Advice to Management

    Complete projects, do not try and launch 5 different initiatives when 4.5 will not take off properly because everyone is spread too thin.
