    Pros

    Working for large companies for nearly a decade I got tired of the bureaucracy, average salaries, delayed responses to my genuine problems, average work, zero recognition etc. etc. and finally decided to join a mid-size company where I can just focus on doing quality work and get recognized for it. I joined Cogent one year back and this company has surprisingly exceeded my expectations. The management goes to great lengths to ensure employee satisfaction. Above average salary, year end bonus, benefits and above all a great support system. Its like a tight knit family where everyone is working towards a common goal

    Cons

    They have limited presence in the west coast

    Advice to Management

    Open more branches across the country

  2. Immigration Support

    Cons

    None. Its all good till now

    Advice to Management

    Keep it up

    Pros

    The company is large enough to be extremely competitive yet small enough to value their clients, employees and partners.

    Cons

    The company's rapid growth can leave business strategy gaps.

    Advice to Management

    Consult professional change managers though heavy growth cycles.

    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.

    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 Management

    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.
