    I learned what I didn't want to do with my life

    Anonymous Employee (Former Employee) Atlanta, GA (US)

    ProsThe 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

    Consbesides the general lack of care they seem to have for their employees, it was just a depressing place to work

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend – I'm not optimistic about the outlook for this company

    Have fun while expanding your skill set

    Client Sales Representative (Former Employee) Nashville, TN (US)

    Prosyou are in charge of managing the accounts you close

    great people with laid back yet competitive office enviroment

    transportation not your typical cubical job and gain transferable skill set

    Advice to Senior Managementcontinue on the path we've seen recently adding more levels of managment and making teams smaller so reps get more one on one attention

    Make Your Career

    Anonymous Employee (Current Employee) Chicago, IL (US)

    ProsYoung, casual work environment and fast paced industry. Company growth does offer opportunities for recent graduates to try explore new career paths. Hard work does not go unnoticed. Summer softball leagues, beer fridays and corporate funded parties don't hurt

    Consif you are starting in a sales role be prepared for challenges, it's a competitive industry that takes some time to get adjusted to.

    Advice to Senior Managementfurther encouragement of employees to bubble up ideas. the ears are open but i'm not sure the right avenues for communicating messages from the floor have been established

    Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend – I'm optimistic about the outlook for this company

    Bad pay and no opportunity

    Client Sales Representative (Current Employee) Atlanta, GA (US)

    ProsYoung/ fun culture. Relaxed work environment.

    ConsCompensation is terrible compared to other sales jobs. There isn't much internal opportunity here. Good stepping tone to leave and get a better job which most people end up doing. Huge turnover here.

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend – I'm not optimistic about the outlook for this company

    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!

    Young, Energectic, and Diverse

    Anonymous Employee (Current Employee)

    ProsAtmosphere-never once do I feel like I am "at work"
    Knowledge- You have the ability to learn not only about transportation, but other industries as well.
    Opportunity- Any sales rep, regardless of tenure has the ability to close large accounts.

    ConsLost in the shuffle- Sales Reps can get lost in the shuffle, do to the large Sales Teams.
    Support Units- Echo is a sales organization, so some departments may only have 4-5 people assigned to them making some tasks difficult to get done.

    Advice to Senior ManagementFocus on creating and rewarding other opportunities within the company. Sales support is a big contributing factor to Reps Success.

    Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend – I'm optimistic about the outlook for this company
