    Pros

    Your peers are awesome and make the job bearable. The dress code is relaxed.

    Cons

    Where do I start? Echo prides itself on its culture, but I fail to see why. The only ones I see benefiting from this so called culture are the departments that makes Echo's money or the chosen few who are liked. Echo boasts about career advancement. This is a flat out lie! You know who advances? The people they chose to advance. It's not based on hard work and/or experience. It's strictly political and if you don't play that game, you're not going anywhere. Oh, and let's talk about this disaster of a merger with Command. Almost a year in and things are still in shambles. Any perks that were in place were taken away without adequate warning or no warning at all! And please, don't say speak to HR about your concerns. They'll just brush them off as you're complaining. Long story short, don't waste your time working here!

    Advice to Management

    Get it together! Your tenured employees are going to leave because you fail to acknowledge and reward the work they do for Echo day in and day out!

    I have been working at Echo Global Logistics full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    The training provided at Echo is awesome, I felt prepared before I hit the floor and knew what was I talking about. I did not have a background in logistics, but the month of training helped me to understand the ins and outs of the industry. The people are probably one of the best things about this job! One week in to the job and I had already made so many new friends that are easy to work with and fun to be around. Echo does its best to make everyone here happy. Not only in our everyday work lives, but outside of work as well. They encourage us to volunteer and stay active, and host events through out the year to thank everyone for their hard work. Overall I am so happy to have found this company!

    Cons

    Logistics industry is a tough industry to be in
