I have been working at Cogent Communications full-time (More than 3 years)

Pros

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

Cons

- Limited product set - Reps don't get paid to retain customers - CRM policies result in potential customers getting annoyed with new reps calling each month

Advice to Management

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

    Pros

    * Good place to gain sales experience * Good training programs for their products * Standard hours - no overtime needed

    Cons

    * micro-management * quota is not realistic * pitch to potential employees is misleading regarding income potential * limited product set makes them un-competitive most of the time * policies and procedures make most employees feel like children - unless entry level

    I have been working at Cogent Communications full-time (More than 3 years)

    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 Management

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