Pros

Strong company culture with great employees, leagues and events. If you're not in sales you probably have a decent and pretty easy job. If you are in sales and if you call the right person at the right time you could get lucky. It's more about getting lucky than being good at sales.

Cons

Pretty terrible compensation and benefits package, long hours, no opportunity for advancement and awful sales management.

    I have been working at Echo Global Logistics full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    The interview process was great (thanks to Mr. Sun), relaxed atmosphere, casual dress code, no micromanaging.

    Cons

    River North location is not ideal, low salary, expensive medical benefits, sub par 401K package, team leads, supervisors & managers are young and lack experience & knowlege of how to manage people. The entire company is extremely sales driven, policies & incentives are geared towards & favors the sales department.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Take complaints made to the HR department seriously, treat all departments the same & get rid of lazy supervisors & managers that do nothing.

    Pros

    Career Growth Opportunites for those who put in the time to learn. Excellent Training before being placed into the job catagory or work team. On going training. Excellnet for new graduates as you learn about logisitcs which can propel you into other channels for continued growth.

    Cons

    Some burn out if you do not manage your off hours time. You have to keep yourself motivated for some of the positions.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Keep training employees so they can advance. You already do this and it just needs to continue.
