Pros

Commission is really great
Good entry-level sales job
Very easy to learn and understand products
Don't need to work with support, provisioning, etc
Ramp bonus is nice to get ready for commission

Cons

Management is more into activity count than actual sales qualities which can lead to wasted effort
No real room for negotiation

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Really try to work and mentor the sales force; it will pay dividends

    Pros

    Decent pay out of college, the way you are ramped up to your quota serves as a signing bonus which is nice

    Cons

    You are selling the internet making 60-80 cold calls a day. They monitor your talk time, call numbers, and the micromanaging is out of control.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Allow more freedom in the workplace as far as working from home and flexible hours. The most important thing should be people's numbers and you shouldn't care how they get them

    Doesn't Recommend
    Neutral Outlook
    No opinion of CEO

    I have been working at Cogent Communications

    Pros

    It has a Good base, an awesome commission structure, and the manager is extremely supportive and understands how to keep a work life balance for his employees

    Cons

    Can't say that I have a whole lot of negative things to say about working here, others than having to sit at a desk for the majority of the day

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Keep up the good work, all I know is that everyone in our office is extremely happy each and every day
