    I worked at Cobalt

    Pros

    You can have good balance between work and family life. Managers are very good on personal level. They pursue the technology in their field very strongly. Now their engineering department at redwood city has got various departments in order to communicate well so its a good initiative that changes are happening. They honor various cultures and in fact one time we had Indian cultural show their which was very succesful event.

    Cons

    no career path. it was great when it was startup but now its like any other big company. Rather than having better communication betwen groups and making things work, lots of blame game is played.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice
