Pros

Almost guarantee work for the 1st 6 months, if you do your daily activities and stay out of trouble...

Cons

For the most part, It's repetitive work, depending on the market you are in... as a RAM, you'll do well if your immediate mgr knows what he/she's doing.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Give promos more time to run.

    I have been working at Cogent Communications full-time (more than an year)

    Pros

    With this being such a small organization we work on issues and equipment comparable positions at rival companies would never have access to. Its a great position and company to learn the ins and outs of edge networking.

    Cons

    The pace can be pretty brutal at times.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Management overall is great. It would greatly assist workers to have a defined way to move around within the company. As it stands finding other intra-company positions can be pretty political.

    A mid-sized company, that is nimble to changing to market needs.

    I worked at Cogent Communications full-time (more than 5 years)

    Pros

    The company is large enough for stability, but small enough that employees at any level can affect change. The company is technology focused. I always had a sense of excitement of the network we built and supported and at the point in my career I worked for Cogent, it was my dream job.

    Cons

    Focus on the bottom dollar can sometimes result in losing sight of the human element of employees. At times, employees can be spread at a bit thin.
