Pros

Of course, there are exceptions in every business, but Cobalt only tends to hire team players.

Cons

Their business has been strong, however, the cyclical nature of the automotive business could affect Cobalt in the future.

    Pros

    Collaboration is evident within my department. The location is very convenient to transportation and restaurants. The office is a nice, open work environment with beautiful views of Puget Sound. Stability backed by parent company ADP. Lots of good, fun people around who like to laugh and enjoy themselves while they work. Ideas are encouraged but not always supported. Free Transit passes and Cheer 30 buffet on Fridays. Community involvement and support of non profit organizations is encouraged.

    Cons

    Upper management has an air of superiority and is a bit out of touch with their workers. Lots of talk about doing things that either don't happen or happen last minute, causing people to rush their work and add to the stress level. Not enough people to do the work, lots of open headcount. People get promoted based on their length of employment rather than their actual skills and knowledge. Departments are segmented and work in silos. HR is virtually nonexistent. They don't provide any type of training or onboarding. ADP system is hard to navigate.

    Advice to Management

    Don't put people in management positions who are clearly not qualified to do their jobs. More overall communication and collaboration between departments would increase overall knowledge and decrease duplication of efforts.


  2. Lot's of growth in the future

    Pros

    The company is making huge strides towards winning big work. Lot's of promising projects in the pipeline.

    Cons

    The growth has been so fast, that the processes in place are not scaling well to help everyone be productive.

    Advice to Management

    Take a step back, assess not what worked for the company before, but what is going to work for the company today and in the future.
