Great Pay and great entry level position. Even if you're bad you have job security for the first 6 months to a year.
The only really Con would be that it is a hard job. If you're not willing to come in and work hard you will not succeed at Cogent.

- No OfferNeutral ExperienceEasy Interview
I applied through an employee referral. The process took 3+ months – interviewed at Cogent Communications (New York, NY) in July 2015.
Several phone interviews with their head recruiter in DC/Maryland and then met with a gentleman in their New York City branch office, located on Broadway in Bowling Green. Interview wasn't tough, actually WAY TOO easy. He mostly spoke about himself and his experience with the company. Worked their 5 years, recently became a manager (after 2 had left). They are in a nice area, right next to the 4,5 express lines which is great but as professional as they push, they were dressed pretty casual. The place was not kept up. Don't really know if it was really worth it. Got the interview from an internal referral. Unfortunately, I knew a job there was going to be short-lived. This isn't a career job.
