    I worked at Cogent Infotech Corp as a contractor (less than an year)

    Pros

    I was at Cogent for a while and I thoroughly enjoyed working there. I learnt a lot while I was there. The trainers are really good and help with all the doubts that I got. The payment was made on time and was offered H1-B sponsoring. Unfortunately, I had to leave because of personal issues but I still remember my time here.

    * Good training
    * Payment on time
    * Good working environment

    Cons

    Nothing that I can think of.

    Pros

    It has really been a great time since I joined Cogent Infotech Corporation almost a year ago. I really appreciate the opportunity for taking one of the best training in U.S, the professional help to find me a wonderful job, all the hard work to get my H1-B visa approved and the heartwarming card for my birthday.

    Cons

    Nothing much to complain about.

    I have been working at Cogent Infotech Corp full-time (less than an year)

    Pros

    I have been a Cold Fusion programmer for seven years now. I love cold fusion but unfortunately all work is now being done in PHP, .NET etc. They are no jobs available on cold fusion. I tried for a very long time to find a project in other latest technologies such as Java etc. but unfortunately everyone wanted project experience. I got a call from a recruiter at Cogent who told me about this cross training program where they hire programmers similar to my background and cross train them on Java. I took the plunge and went through a rigorous training program and am currently working as a Java programmer with a bank in Philadelphia. My best career move ever.

    Cons

    The training program is very demanding and majority of the attendees have some Java experience.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Thanks for this great opportunity. I will definitely recommend my other friends that are working in obsolete technologies and want to cross train to Java.

    Pros

    they seems to promise me the h1b visa during next year just 5 months after sending me the Offer Letter

    I worked at Cogent Infotech Corp (less than an year)

    Pros

    I was hired to do a job where I have a high level of expertise but needed to learn proprietary software.

    Cons

    I feel that I was rejected because the girl previously doing the job was refused a new work visa by the company and the group was trying to make it appear that only she could do the job in order to get her back. The team refused to train me.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Take note of the number of Indian employees an Indian company has in relation to the population of the USA. Note the discrimination practices.

    Pros

    Good training, certification. Competetive pay. H1 and greencard processing if and when needed

    Cons

    Weak marketing team. No pay at bench even if you dont get any interview.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Improve the marketing and placement team. Get the stat from them about resume submission and interview/call of the programmer's. Do not blindly trust them crosscheck with programmer.

    I have been working at Cogent Infotech Corp full-time (more than an year)

    Pros

    I came to America to do my MS in comp science. After graduation I interviewed with Amazon and other california startups. They were all ready to offer internships but not a permanent job. After struggling for several months I then came to know about cogent thru' a friend. I joined this company with little expectations. But I was gladly surprised. This company delivered whatever they promised me. A great starting salary (slightly higher than offered by california companies), guaranteed year end bonus, super Java training and OCJP certification, 2 year project with a state of florida agency, great benefits and above all they filed my H1 at no cost to me. I get my salary directly deposited in my bank every two weeks....couldn't have asked for more.

    Cons

    Not many people know about this company. I think they mostly hire through employee referrals.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Market yourself more aggressively. A lot of international students can benefit from this company.
