    Great!

    Anonymous Employee (Current Employee)

    ProsVery nice atmosphere, great place to work, great people to work with. The office is in long beach which is also a nice plus. I would suggest working here to a friend.

    ConsThere are not many cons for working at this job. The biggest con is the hours but most days you can get out early. I dont think there are a lot of cons.

    Great opportunity, hard work, can be frustrating at times.

    Client Sales Representative (Current Employee) Chicago, IL (US)

    ProsThe culture is great. Most people are fairly young and hungry for success. Management is very helpful. They hand out beer on Fridays at the office.

    ConsCold calling, sometimes things that are out of your control can temporarily limit your opportunities, there are a ton of employees so one on one help isn't always available, salary is better than most sales jobs but still not great until you make commission.

    Advice to Senior ManagementKeep up the good work.

    Echo is an awesome place to work!

    Vice President (Current Employee) Chicago, IL (US)

    ProsThis is a young and high energy culture with Midwestern values. Super nice people and very social atmosphere. Everyone wants you to succeed. If you've ever thought about giving commissioned sales a try, this is the place to do it.

    ConsThe first 6 months are difficult - lots of cold calling. But if you can stick with it you will succeed.

    I love it!

    Carrier Sales Representative (Current Employee) Chicago, IL (US)

    ProsFun , young company. Lots of events to keep employees engaged and active within the company. Great opportunity to make friends and learn about logistics and it's an environment that's growing fast, we are always adding new team members and bringing people in. Great recruiting process and training, I feel like I have learned a lot and I've only been here 2 months. I came from a bank environment and the attitude and culture here is contagious.

    ConsGetting started is rough, but what do you expect? I do everything I was trained to do but don't always book a load (Echo speak for closing a deal) and sometimes it's hard to get started, but there are many successful people here who assure me they started the same way and had a difficult time at the beginning so I'm going to true them and stay after it. Hours can be rough too but I'm working with young people my age so it's hard to complain.

    Advice to Senior ManagementTry to paint a realistic expectation of the job during the interview process by getting more time to talk to current employees and get questions answered.

    Prosyou are in charge of managing the accounts you close

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

    Echo Global Logistics has been phenominal in their training process.

    Inside Sales Representative (Current Employee) Dallas, TX (US)

    ProsThe cool thing about working at Echo Dallas is that we have tons of outuside events that keep the job fun and interesting.

    ConsThe only challenge that I feel that may be a problem is moving up within the company after working here for a while. There are a ton of smart people that work here so the competition is pretty tough.

    Advice to Senior ManagementKeep up the good work!
