I have been working at Cobalt full-time for more than 3 years

Pros

I love working here, I really do. I firmly believe that anyone with some talent and a good work ethic can go far here. I've been promoted twice in the last 3 years. They also have really great flexibility which, as a parent, I love. They have a gym which is great too. All of my managers have been super-supportive and have helped guide me as I worked to accomplish my goals.

Cons

The location can make the commute a bit rough, but they do provide ORCA cards which helps.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Continue to work on giving clear paths to success to your employees. I'd love to see a more robust peer-recognition program as well

    I have been working at Cobalt full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    Free bus pass, free espresso drinks, frequent parties and outings. They are open to work-from-home and "desk-sharing" once you've been there for a while.

    Cons

    Pay is very low compared to other companies. Bonuses and raises exist, but are minuscule. Salaried employees were recently transitioned to hourly, so you feel like a laborer rather than a respected consultant or professional.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    You get what you pay for. All quality employees will leave if they aren't financially rewarded.

    I worked at Cobalt as a contractor for more than a year

    Pros

    The people here make the company. Very friendly, the whole culture is very open and pleasant. I had never worked for a big tech company before and am very grateful that it was with them. They take care of their employees.

    Cons

    They aren't the highest paying company, but it's more about quality of life. I was there while they were going through some transitions so there were some people that were still trying to figure out where they fit in.
