Pros

- Casual environment
- Large sales territories
- Improved employee retention policies

Try to add new services product set (i.e. voice, security, cdn)

    Pros

    How can you list a pro when a company is this dishonest?

    Cons

    1st Notice how every review with 4 stars or more starts with the same "I have been working at Cogent Communications full-time for more than X years"?

    2nd There aren't that many people that have worked at Cogent that long

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Instead of making things look like they're not to prospecting employees, just improve the work environment
