    Pros

    Benefits, great work-life balance, most people are fresh out of college, no college degree required, lots of energy, management does nice things for those who work hard

    Cons

    Poor base salary, commission structure is weak if you even break the draw. Most sales reps are not on commission-and those who do get commission are a statistical anomaly.

    Advice to Management

    Keep on keeping on!

    Pros

    The company is growing leaps and bounds, it has a fun, fast pace feel.

    Cons

    Due to the fast growth we struggle to keep up with the growing work load.

    Advice to Management

    Try to staff before there is an urgent need in a department.

  6. The Dallas Branch is a family, and while Echo is a large corporation, this branch makes you feel right at home.

    Pros

    Management truly cares about the success of their personnel in this branch. Even if you are struggling, if you seek help, you will find someone (whether it be a peer or a supervisor/manager) that is willing to help. If you put in the work, you WILL be rewarded. The Dallas branch exemplifies the "work hard play hard" mentality very well.

    Cons

    You have to adopt, "the squeaky wheel gets the grease" mentality when trying to get answers from corporate in Chicago. The job is truly a grind when starting out, and can be fairly stressful.

    Advice to Management

    Consistent feedback provided to sales reps. There are campaigns for monthly reviews, call reviews, pipeline reviews, but they are not consistent. If the feedback operates like clock-work, then your sales reps will grow.

    Pros

    Echo truly values their employees and does everything they can to make sure they have a good experience here. Frequent free meals from supervisors for doing what they ask of you, beer on Fridays, and a lot of team work that is actually helpful. The branch manager is seriously the nicest, most loving person I have yet to work for. I have stayed at this job pretty much for him and all he does for us. The office is extremely laid back, which is really awesome.

    Cons

    The job itself is really frustrating. It takes a lot of hard work and dedication to hit commission. Echo sets you up for success though, they give you everything you might need (and more) to do well. The job is rewarding at times when you hit goals. Training is long and boring at times. Calling people all day can get frustrating too.

    Advice to Management

    I love the management

    Pros

    Fun and friendly environment. Everyone is really supportive of each other. It looks like there are good opportunities for growth and development. It's a young crowd and a good place to start a sales career.

    Cons

    It can be very frustrating. I wasn't 100% prepared when I hit the floor after training. There are still a few things I struggle with.

    Pros

    Bonus that you get for meeting your goal, the building that you work in shows the appreciation for the employees that work there, You can state your opinion and actually get to be involved in making a process better.

    Cons

    Previous managers were not involved in each employee that they managed, they never took the time out to really see what was going on, they would listen to certain people and make judgements. A current supervisor would discuss management decisions about other employees with her friends which was very inappropriate. Supervisor would not lead my example when it came to breaks & lunches- time abused.

    Advice to Management

    It would be great to have a relationship with each employee that the manger is in charge of. Everyone should have an equal amount of work instead of letting some employees get away with doing less than is expected. One rule for all, either you work at home or you come to the office- some should not be granted work at home all of the time when others are expected to be at the office. Have a complained box so that upper management can know what's going on in other departments.

    Pros

    Fun and energetic company. Young crowd. They really care about their employees.

    Cons

    Pay is low to start out. It can take up to 1 or 2 years before you start to make commission because they are monthly goals for sales which is a very difficult goal. Quarterly or yearly goals are much easier to get commission.

    Advice to Management

    There has to be an easier route to gain commission or something else that motivates me to stick around and keep selling.

    Pros

    Great people, really young but not quite as "fratty" as similar companies. Casual dress code (polos, button-downs and jeans, so a little nicer than then industry standard.) and beer Fridays.

    Cons

    Long work days can be stressful. Also not many places to eat around the Chicago office although they do have Fooda come in every now and then.

    Advice to Management

    Keep up the good work!
