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 ManagementAdvice

Hire more managers.

    Pros

    Great work environment, fantastic and smart people. Cooperative management and family friendly work arrangements.

    Cons

    Sometimes we don't get enough product support before we launch things, so we're kind of left to create a process where I think one should already be there. Good news is that for the independent person, it's a great autonomous environment.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Additional training on all the Cobalt products, not just the ones we support in order to offer a better understanding of the suite of products and how they work together.
