    Pros

    I have been with Echo Global Logistics for a little under 2 years. Echo is a great place to establish a successful career in the logistics industry if you have the drive to put in the work every day. They provide you with all tools and training needed so that you have the knowledge and skill sets required to become successful. Echo's proprietary technology is second to none and provides a competitive advantage that allows you to establish long term clientele that benefit heavily from Echo's services. The Dallas branch has a great culture and I have established life long friendships with my co-workers. Coming from another freight brokerage, I can say that Echo's commission structure is truly uncapped and allows you to receive the fruits of your labor which is essential in succeeding in this industry . If you are willing to put in the work, you will be rewarded at Echo. Easy onboarding process and no drug test required. Echo is a publicly traded, 1.8 billion dollar company that is respected and thought of highly throughout the Supply Chain/Logistics industry.

    Cons

    In order to make money at Echo you must be willing to put in the work. You will not find success if you expect the clients to come to you. Reps that are willing to put in the work every day are able to establish a consistent book of business and can make 6 figures by year 2 (no joke). With that being said, the job can become frustrating if you do not have a serious drive to be successful. The job is not for everyone, but if you have the drive to succeed this is the best platform to benefit from the work you put in.

    I have been working at Echo Global Logistics full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Great atmosphere, adaptive leadership, casual culture, get out of the job what you put in

    Cons

    Ultimately it is still a fairly young company and they grew very quickly, so there have been some growing pains along the way (regarding tech, organization, comp, etc). If you focus on your own performance these alterations are largely non-issues.

    Advice to Management

    Focus on the tech and the rest will fall into place.

    Pros

    There's money to be made if you're willing to put in the work, but it is definitely a grind.

    Cons

    Lack of structure and in terms of upward mobility you can over time become a manager, but there isn't much incentive to do so.

    Pros

    The people are fantastic. From top to bottom. There is an overall sense of urgency and accomplishment throughout the IT dept. Yes, there are challenges, and also because of that, opportunity. There is technical debt, and process debt [of course] but we do not that that get in the way of delivering value to our business and our customers, and are actively engaged in ways to make it better.

    Technology is central to the organization as a whole, and vital for it to achieve its goals, and it is easy & cool to see how the value delivered by each of the teams impacts the business.

    The atmosphere is relaxed, and everyone enjoys each other's company. There is beer on Fridays and enough social events after-hours throughout the week to pique anyone's interest.

    Cons

    It's not perfect. No place is. Like I said, we have our challenges, but we have a commitment from the leadership to act on them, and we are empowered to solve them.

    Advice to Management

    Keep on keeping on. Keep empowering us to solve our challenges. Keep listening to the individual contributors. Keep celebrating with us when we meet challenges and succeed. And keep challenging the status quo.
