    Pros

    if you work hard and stick with it, good things will come. great people. great atmosphere. days fly by. it will teach you tons of skills. work with people in various industries large and small which will help for future interviews anywhere.

    Cons

    takes a while and hard work to get to commission. holidays and taking days off is kind of hard because everyone has own book.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    larger base, or more perks for when you are starting

    I have been working at Echo Global Logistics full-time for less than a year

    Pros

    young workforce with similar interests. kickball team on thursdays, softball team on tuesdays, beer fridays and happy hours regularly. management has expectations and stands by them but let's you handle your business how you choose. i have been here 10 months and am going to hit commission this month

    Cons

    it's a sales job where you have to work hard and mostly find your own leads. first six months is heavy cold calling but now i am doing mainly customer management with less calls. putting in more than 40 hours is necessary to getting ahead.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    some more advanced training would be helpful but other than that, job has been what i expected and overall good.

    I worked at Echo Global Logistics full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    The best reason to work here is you are able to quickly bond with co-workers over how miserable you both are.
    Great for learning the art of the cold call

    Cons

    besides the general lack of care they seem to have for their employees, it was just a depressing place to work

    Pros

    you are in charge of managing the accounts you close

    great people with laid back yet competitive office enviroment

    transportation not your typical cubical job and gain transferable skill set

    Cons

    customers and carriers often get angry and mouth off to you but you just have to grin and bear it

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    continue on the path we've seen recently adding more levels of managment and making teams smaller so reps get more one on one attention

    I have been working at Echo Global Logistics full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    Young, casual work environment and fast paced industry. Company growth does offer opportunities for recent graduates to try explore new career paths. Hard work does not go unnoticed. Summer softball leagues, beer fridays and corporate funded parties don't hurt

    Cons

    if you are starting in a sales role be prepared for challenges, it's a competitive industry that takes some time to get adjusted to.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    further encouragement of employees to bubble up ideas. the ears are open but i'm not sure the right avenues for communicating messages from the floor have been established
