Great First Job
Carrier Sales Representative (Current Employee) –  Troy, MIJune 20, 2016
When you get out of college most people want to put their nose to the grindstone and work. Echo is a great place for this. It's also a great place to make money if you are lucky to land a big account or carrier. Like any company, there are good and bad managers. However, if you want to grow your career, opportunities are limited. That along with a high stress workload, low salary, and long hours make Echo a tough place to really begin a career. The best part of Echo is that you can make some great money if you really put in the time and work for it. There are also some really great people that work at Echo and you will build some strong relationships with people across the country.
Pros
Coworkers
Cons
Long hours, high stress occupation, low starting salary

Good Start in Sales
Accounts Payable LTL Analyst (Current Employee) –  Chicago, ILJune 17, 2016
This is a decent company for someone straight out of college in a sales environment or operations client facing environment. However it is still very young and there are lots of training opportunities to create consistency throughout the organization.

Productive and fun place to work with ping pong table, golf course
Accounts Receivable/Cash-Application Associate (Current Employee) –  Chicago, ILMarch 31, 2016
Echo is a great place to work. The energy is high and the people who work there are very friendly and helpful. I work in the Accounts Receivable Department as a Cash Application Associate, where I apply all payments from all of the Echo offices throughout the US and Canada. Management is very nice and professional and they make you feel very welcomed and appreciated. I can't really say that there is a hard part to my job as I have the experience needed to make my job easy and fun to do on a daily basis. The most enjoyable part of working at Echo is they love to give back to the community by arranging to have the employees volunteer to clean and paint schools in different locations throughout the city. They also have a softball team which is great whether you are playing or just cheering for your co-workers.
Pros
Great hours, weekends off, holiday parties
Cons
It can sometimes be noisy which make it hard to concentrate, average pay

OK place to begin a career, not a destination
Client Sales Manager (Former Employee) –  Dallas, TXDecember 14, 2015
Pros:

young office, has start up feel

decent benefits (health, vision, dental)


Cons:

don't invest in sales reps

weak salary

management sees you as a number

structured so that once you build a solid customer base, you are bogged down and don't have the time to continue growing, thus capping your earnings

base/draw structure requires you to build a very large book before you can actually get paid commission on it

In my 4 years there, they cut commission percentages 3 times

Its logistics brokerage

Logistics Client Sales Executive (Current Employee) –  Chicago, ILNovember 11, 2015

Pros
Coworkers, raffles, rewarded with tickets to concerts, gift certificates, etc
Cons
Difficult to take vacation, draw based commission structure

Competitive, Fast Paced Environment with good earning potential
Senior Client Sales Executive (Current Employee) –  Chicago, ILSeptember 9, 2015
Echo Global is a lively, fast paced environment that requires an unrelenting work ethic and desire to succeed. Sales reps are responsible for every aspect of the business from prospecting for new clients to maintaining & growing existing accounts. This is a very competitive marketplace and not for the faint of heart. If you're willing to put in the hard work, the reward is sweet.

Great Place to Work - Tough Industry
Senior Client Sales Executive (Current Employee) –  Chicago, ILJuly 29, 2015
Echo is a great place to work. It is especially great for hustlers that are young and ready to make a name for themselves.

The hardest part is the industry. It is very saturated and us brokers are literally a dime a dozen. So it gets very competetive and difficult to land accounts because people get so tired of being hounded by brokers all day..

If you are ready to tirelessly hound the phones to get traction and keep that traction. Then compensation waits for you.
Pros
Good Pay - Good Work Environment
Cons
Hard Industry

Great people and fun atmosphere very low pay
Account Manager (Former Employee) –  West SacramentoJuly 1, 2015
My time at Echo was fun, i learned a lot about a growing industry and the work is fun,

although it is fun it is not a place to hang your hat. Company culture is geared to the Millennial Generation of High tech knowledge looking to learn about supply chain management,. The Sales culture is becoming obsolete as they look for young folks to come and find new accounts for them to later turn them into house accounts.

the pay is very low and the commission structure is almost
unobtainable with a lot of moving parts to their system,

My coworkers were awesome and continue to maintain relationships with them

I loved the flexibility of my job

and I learned a lot about logistics and supply chain management..
.
Pros
Great flexable laid back culture
Cons
hard to make money

Helped start the office
Account Executive/Operations Manager (Former Employee) –  Indianapolis, INSeptember 23, 2015
My typical work day was very different from day to day, that is part of the good. The Bad was that the owners of the Indianapolis office had no idea what they were doing.

Not a lot of room to grow at the branch level, the only way to move to a different position in this company is to move to Chicago.

Carrier Sales Representative (Current Employee) –  Boston, MAJune 5, 2015
Any job in the military, whether it is active duty or National Guard/Reserves, will be entirely what you make it. If you are motivated to succeed, you will succeed. If you are not motivated, you will not enjoy the experience.
Pros
Sense of purpose, Resume builder
Cons
Leaders can be overbearing and intrusive, Once you're in, you're in.

Senior Account Manager (Former Employee) –  Chicago, ILSeptember 4, 2015
Great job for people fresh out of college. They do not compensate their employees well, and weed out tenured reps in place for cheaper labor.

Work in collaboration with client to maintain and provide instruction on Echo Trak, an online system used to request routing for LTL shipments.
