An Insider's view of Echo Global Logistics

How would you describe the company’s work-life balance?

Managers at Echo get to know you by having one on one meetings, so they understand your personal life. Echo is flexible with when you arrive and leave from work, so that it fits with your schedule. Echo understands that life happens, so leaving early isn’t a problem as long as you make it up later. I feel that Echo respects my personal time.

I am most excited around a project designed to transform and re-build our API architecture. This project is not only very beneficial to our clients but also allows members of my team to work on and be exposed to a high visibility design that will have a positive impact on the client experience when integrating with Echo.
