Doesn't Recommend
Neutral Outlook
No opinion of CEO

I worked at Cogent Communications full-time (Less than a year)

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 Management

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

    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 Management

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

    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 Management

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