Pros

Cobalt is one of the few places I've worked where management truly seems devoted to empowering their employees. There's very little enforcement of hierarchy, and management is very sane when it comes to projects and deliverables - much more focus on quality deliverables than you would expect from a large company.

Cons

As with all large companies there is some bureaucracy. Management is also spread too thin for the amount of employees, info reaches us in a late fashion (bonus info, event opportunities, info about the company, etc).

Advice to Management

Hire more managers.

    Pros

    Cobalt has a unique culture among companies I have worked for. You truly feel like you are part of a family, and that what you do matters to the company success. Nobody here is pretentioius. Everyone works. Everyone contributes. We are all focussed on the same goals.

    Cons

    Sometimes its hard being away from Seattle, and you feel a little disconnected from the mother ship. I wish we could come back twice a year like we did in the past to recharge, re-energize, and deepen our belief in what we are doing.

    Advice to Management

    Thanks for your hard work and dedication, and committment to providing us with a unique and rewarding work atmosphere that encourages particiapation, growth, and success.


  2. Good place to start a career in SEM.

    Pros

    Experienced employees are willing to teach. Flexibility in work style, if you can do you job well. Good communication between colleagues.

    Cons

    Not sure what your work contributes to sometimes. There are periods of downtime.

    Advice to Management

    Show employees what kind of difference their work makes to the company.
