Ups and Downs

Anonymous Employee (Current Employee)

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

ProsGreat location, some really good benefits. Lots of bright and fun people.

ConsLack of vision, direction from management. Project management is not alway good. Many times expectations are fuzzy. Not very much time off. Quick to point fingers or blame someone if something does not go as expected.

Advice to Senior ManagementUnderstand your employees and their strengths. Many times people are "bucketed" into projects not suited for them. I see many talented people that should manage groups and many managers that do not have a very wide range of skills.

No, I would not recommend this company to a friend
