    Pros

    The work atmosphere at Echo Dallas is awesome. This is a young energetic company to work for - the supervisors as well as Branch Manager at Dallas continues to give you the resources you need to succeed as well as encourages you and makes sure you're recognized when you’re hard work is noticed.

    Cons

    In any job - finding your way in a company is challenging at first. Echo has made this transition easy!

    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.

    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.

    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
