    I have been working at Echo Global Logistics full-time for more than 4 years

    Pros

    Amazing CRM that puts leads at my fingertips. Highest commission rate I have seen at a 3PL including the big boys C.H. Robinson that I worked for. Great carrier pricing to allow us client sales reps to get more business. Health benefits are amazing.

    Cons

    I would like to see an option of employee stock purchase plan. I was awarded stock during restructure after we bought a major Truckload heavy 3PL so that was nice, but would like to continue to buy stock in our company.

    Advice to Management

    Keep doing what your doing. National sales rep managers are great, so was my core manager before I graduated to National.

    I have been working at Echo Global Logistics full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    Good training Program, very big office

    Cons

    You're just a number, managers do what they want and HR is a joke, they are there to make sure they don't get sued, that's it. The current girl there truly works for the managers and to assist professionally removing any employee a manager may not like.

    Advice to Management

    Don't allow managers to do what they want with no repercussions. If a manager doesn't like you, you are screwed because HR is there just to allow the managers to mess with you professionally to protect themselves from being sued. HR is a joke

    Pros

    Good coworkers. Good tech but almost too much tech

    Cons

    Micro managed and stressful work

    Advice to Management

    Be more connected with the day to day ops. Managers sit in meetings all day and are never on the floor. Most are just Corp yes men there to pass along the message

      I worked at Echo Global Logistics

      Pros

      Free coffee about it. Also they allow you to do whatever you want.

      Cons

      Omg where to begin. Management doesn’t care. Favoritism. You can’t call on leads with over 250k revenue unless you’re a national rep. Every big company is already taken by a senior rep. The office is split between the command side and the echo side. The company makes it near impossible to reach commission. Not a place to work if you really want to make money. On the up side they don’t fire here so if you was a job to...

      Pros

      Echo is fun, laidback, and very team oriented. I started this position right out of college, and I love working here. You are selling a service that all companies need, you get to build relationships with clients and grow your own accounts. I came into the job knowing nothing about logistics, and I feel like I have gained very valuable experience wherever my career takes me. There is also potential to make a ton of money...

      Cons

      Cold calling gets old...you make 60-80 calls a day. You are also the middle man when something goes wrong. You need to be tough and know how to make things happen.

      Advice to Management

      Care more about long term account management than making big margins on individual little shipments

      Young employees Great place for a first job You will learn a lot about business (both positive and negative)

      Cons

      High Turnover Employee Development Compensation Leadership cares more about earnings than employees Leadership is disconnected to what entry level employees actually need or care about

      Advice to Management

      Actually address and change what is brought up every year in reviews and surveys. Stop the favoritism within departments. Pay entry level employees enough to be able to live on their own in all areas of the country.
