If you're striving for mediocrity and no advancement, this is a great place to work.

I worked at Cobalt full-time (more than 5 years)

Pros

- If you are a competent person you can get your work done in less than 8 hours, so it is a good place to work if you have a family.
- They have good WFH options now.

Cons

- Promotions are based purely on favoritism and how much ass you kiss, not on true merit.
- They don't value time of service or the amount of money an employee has made for the company for advancement.
- You are a copy and paste monkey with a lot of monotonous busy work and box-checking.
- As a DAA you do not do true paid search, as all the programs are built for you.
- They implemented a "Level" system for each position, but the things you need to do to get to advance a Level are not truly listed, those are merely suggestions. You need to go out to lunches with management and pretend the products you are supporting are God, when they break all the time.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

- Quit stealing your employees ideas and be original.
- Value employees who have put in the time and effort because the majority of others are not.
- Spend more time working on things that matter and less time at Starbucks.

    I worked at Cobalt full-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    Casual, very little expected after hours/weekends, location. It's a really good place for those who have "grown up" there. Generally convenient commute by bus/train. If you are not driven and just want to do your job this is a good fit.

    Cons

    Leadership/hiring/projects - all mediocre at best, no culture of excellence. Employees who have spent most of their career there are extremely resistant to trying new ways of doing things.
