    I worked at Cogent Communications full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    Salary average, vacation time average, and I can not think of one other positive thing to say.

    Cons

    Got hired and within the first 9 months had 4 different Directors each with their own process and way of managing managers ( no real training or consistency). I was manager in title only, could not interview applicants for my team (not even look at their resumes), had to submit daily checkout sheets ( YES!! Checkout sheets for managers), no support from upper management. I could not let go of any reps even when the reps were not performing (hitting their quota) and when they tested positive for drugs (HR turned a blind eye) in the workplace. No training program for managers more importantly this job is all about do what I say not as I do.Quota unattainable if you have reps that have less than 1 year tenure no shot. (you live off your base).Definitely a good ol boys club type of work environment. By far one of the worst organizations I have ever worked for. Unless you absolutely need the money many more opps out their that give you full support from upper mgmt to HR.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Too little too late..1 VP of global sales got let go of due to poor sales and leadership... Nurture your talent maybe then your turnover rate wont be one of the highest in your industry.
